Synonymous to excellence, the Baeksang Arts Awards has been considered as South Korea’s most prestigious award-giving body in the fields of film, television, and theater. On May 13, the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards recognized the artists who rendered the most excellent performances in different categories.
The award ceremony took place at KINTEX (Korean International Exhibition Center) at Ilsanseo-gu, Goyang, Gyeonggi Province.
