Important Intangible Cultural Properties

The Important Intangible Cultural Properties are aspects of intangible culture that the government of South Korea has officially designated for preservation since the inception of the program in 1964. They are proclaimed and maintained by South Korea's Cultural Heritage Administration.

The first item so designated was Jongmyo jeryeak, the ancient music and dance performed at the Jongmyo Royal Ancestral Shrine in Seoul; it was proclaimed on December 7, 1964. The most recent, announced on November 16, 2006, was Important Intangible Cultural Property 119, geumbakjang (gold leaf decoration, practiced in Seongnam, Gyeonggi-do.

A similarly named yet distinct designation, "Intangible Cultural Properties," also exists, with 33 items having been proclaimed. These are proclaimed by provinces or cities rather than by the national Cultural Heritage Administration.
