Golden Disc Awards Tickets
Golden Disc Awards since 1986
The Gold Disc Awards are one of the oldest and most well-known award ceremonies in South Korea to honor local music achievements in the country. The event has been going on since 1986 and is usually held around the first week of January. Music in Korea has certainly evolved over the years but the K-Wave has been the most prominent genre as of late. K-Pop fans go crazy over the event every year and jump at the chance to get Golden Disc Awards tickets. At StubHub we will keep you in the loop with the latest details for the next Golden Disc Awards.
Golden Disc Awards winners
Albums and songs that are up for nomination must have been released between November of one year until December of the next. The voting criteria changed recently, eliminating online voting from many of the categories. The Popularity Award has been chosen to represent 100% online votes. In most cases, the rest winners are determined based on music sales (80%) and a group of carefully selected music experts. The first ever Popularity Award went to Cho Yong-pil in 1986. Choi Teon-je won the same award two years in a row in ’93 and ’94 as well as Beast in 2014 and 2015 and Shinee in 2016 and 2017. As of 2018, Super Junior have won the most overall awards at 19, followed by EXO at 16. Who will win the most awards this year? What better way to find out than seeing it for yourself. With Golden Disc Award tickets it’ll be like you’re part of all the red carpet shenanigans!
