The 'KT&G Sangsang Stage Challenge' is a program designed to support Korean creative plays looking for a stage and an audience.

However, the performance must be performed for more than 4 weeks after selection and must not violate the copyright of the original performance.
Applicants can apply through the KT&G Sangsangmadang website. (https://www.sangsangmadang.com) The final selection will be announced in March after the first document screening and the second interview screening, and performance production costs of 10 million won and the performance hall and equipment of “KT&G Sangsang Madang Daechi Art Hall” will be provided free of charge.
