On January 15th, many of Korea’s top musicians and pop stars gathered at the Sepang International Circuit in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia for the 27th Golden Disk Awards.
This year, the show was divided into two parts: the first part (held on January 15th) honors the winners of the physical album categories, while the second day (held on January 16th) will do the same for digital albums. KARA‘s Nicole, CNBLUE‘s Yonghwa (Day 1), FT ISLAND‘s Lee Hong Ki, andSISTAR‘s Dasom (Day 2) are the MCs for this year’s awards.
The first ‘Golden Disk Awards’ began in 1986, and since then, it’s become Korea’s most prestigious awards ceremony for music. Nicknamed the ‘Korean Grammy Awards,’ the ceremony is reputed for its fair standards, as the committee utilizes figures from album and digital music sales only.
This year’s show will be pre-recorded and air on January 19th through jTBC.
