The government on Tuesday decided to award the order of cultural merit to Kim Ki-duk, who won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival this year for his film "Pieta," as well as its two lead actors Cho Min-soo and Lee Jung-jin.
The medal will also go to rapper Psy, whose song "Gangnam Style" has become a global sensation, and five other figures who have devoted themselves to "outstanding meritorious services" to the arts.
The award ceremony will be held at the Seoul Olympic Hall on Nov. 19.
