Axion-like particles (ALPs) may provide a portal to new physics beyond the Standard Model (SM) with naturally small couplings and mass. I will discuss physics potential of ALPs to address the problems of the SM such as weak scale hierarchy, dark matter, and matter-antimatter asymmetry. Those ALPs of phenomenological interest may be within the reach of on-going and near future experiments. I will also discuss implications from UV completion.
