“The 33rd Golden Disc Award” is gaining a lot of respect for announcing this recently!
On December 5, they announced that the award show will be omitting online voting for the Bonsang, Daesang and Best New Artist award to ensure fairness.
The award show is again assuring fans they strive towards fairness putting it as the top priority. Usually, fans votes count in determining who takes home the Bonsang, Saesang and Best New Artist awards for almost all Korean award shows.
How will the winner be announced then?
It will be chosen based on the number of album sales, digital download, and evaluation by experts according to “The 33rd Golden Disc Award.” The experts will be a committee composed of 30 people who are music program producers, critics and Kpop reporters.
The criteria to be nominated for any of the awards at “The 33rd Golden Disc Award” will be that the music is released between December 1, 2017 to November 30, 2018.
The award show will take place on January 5 and 6 and will be broadcasted live on JTBC, JTBC2, and JTBC4.
Kpop fans are praising the awards show for the way they strive to fairness. Instead of it becoming a popularity award competition among fandoms, it will be about the quality.
How do you feel about this move?
