The most powerful music awards in Korea

Ever since their debut in 1986, the Golden Disk Awards have held sway as Korea's most authoritative music awards. The Awards have earned their reputation as "the Grammys of Korea" through 27 years of proud history and tradition. The Golden Disk Awards continue to capture the attention of the K-pop world as the awards Korean artistes covet the most.

A big part of the Golden Disk Awards' unique appeal lies in their impartiality. Unlike other awards, the Golden Disk Awards are based largely on album sales. Reflecting the times, digital music distribution is included in the album sales by which each artiste is judged. This fair and simple approach attracts more fans every year to K-Pop's best-loved music awards.
