HistoryEdit

Originally named the MBC Film Awards, the ceremony was first established in 2002. It was renamed the Korean Film Awards in 2003. Votes were determined from a jury of 500 film professionals and 500 viewers selected through the internet, using a 7:3 ratio.[1]

In 2009, failure to secure sponsors during the global economic recession resulted in the cancellation of that year's ceremony.[2] It resumed in 2010, with Hyundai Motor Company as the main sponsor.[3] But persistent financial difficulties regarding the production costs led MBC to abolish the awards in 2011.[1][4]
