The Baeksang Arts Awards (Korean백상예술대상; RRBaeksang yesul daesang), also known as the Paeksang Arts Awards, are awards for excellence in film, television and theatre in South Korea.[1] The awards were first introduced in 1965 by Chang Key-young, the founder of Hankook Ilbo newspaper, whose pen name was "Baeksang".[2][3] It was established for the development of Korean popular culture and art and for enhancing the morale of artists.[4] They are regarded as one of the most prestigious entertainment awards in South Korea.[5][6]

Baeksang Arts Awards are annually presented at the awards ceremony organised by Ilgan Sports and JTBC Plus, affiliates of JoongAng Ilbo, usually in the second quarter of each year in Seoul.[5] It is the only comprehensive awards ceremony in South Korea recognising excellence in film, television and theatre.[6][7]
