award show season is still creeping up on us!! this time, nominations for the 30th golden disk awards (aka korea's "version" of the grammy awards) have been announced. (voting also started but you apparently have to pay $1 daily???? to vote so i won't even get into that. regardless: voting ends on january 10th.) the ceremony will take place on january 20th - 21st in shenzhen, china, with one day being dedicated to the digital sector and the other to the disk. noms are behind the cuts!


apparently, even if you're nominated in both categories, you can only win once between either disk or digital which makes it more "fair" and gives more artists chances to win. i also read that it's rare that rookies win bonsangs? but idk. you're also only eligible for the daesang / grand prize award if you win a bonsang prior to it during the ceremony.

also known as: the newcomer award, rookie award, ect. basically to celebrate the achivements of newly debuted artists throughout the year. the number of winners has kind of varied over the years: five won in 2012 / 2013, four won in 2014 and three won last year though there's been years that only two winners have been chosen. there's something on the criteria page that says: "two (teams) global and domestic" so i'm not sure if that means there'll be four winners, or ...? who knows. they don't split the wins between male and female artists though.

criteria ★ 10% jury committee vote, 10% popular vote, 80% album sales (combined digital / physical, i think).

global popularity award (current rankings) ★

(domestic) popularity award (current rankings) ★

the information here is kinda blurry / i haven't seen much on it but, if going by last year's awards, the popularity award is usually given to one to four winners. (it was four last year.) it could be totally wrong, but i'm getting the impression that they may split between whoever wins in the final vote for the global and domestic polls? (the winners last year were beast, snsd, taemin and toheart.) but who knows, we'll find out when the actual show happens, lmao.

and here i am hoping that day6 would get nominated for the rookie award cause their debut album was amazing. didn't they sell pretty well?
byeolbyeol 10th-Dec-2015 05:45 pm (UTC)
i thought they did but apparently they haven't even broken 10k in sales. :/
a_cheshire_grin 10th-Dec-2015 05:54 pm (UTC)
I hope Gfriend win this time! These girls really deserve it!
mc1a 10th-Dec-2015 06:06 pm (UTC)
The voting fee is LOL

So are these 'real' awards unlike MAMA or the Melons? (EDIT: I've just seen that you have to pay money to vote, nvm lol)

The nominations are good, SHINee really, really killed it musically, f(x) are pretty good but idk, I think SHINee were stronger. View is one of the top 5 best songs I've heard all year. GOT7's mini is far better than it needs to, BTOB's vocal slayage needs to be awarded with something and Reboot deserves A LOT of love. More than it's been getting

#JusticeforZeroForConduct tho : / That song bangs, why did it disappear?!

Lol look I actually like iKON but of them and BigBang they did not make better music than BB. That's odd. I guess it's because SOMEBODY dropped the ball on the full album release for BB smh.

Actually forget everything I've said, I don't care who wins just as long as JYP gets nothing and he isn't allowed to perform.

i think i saw someone say they're making people ~pay to vote to keep people from cheating? because most fandoms use bots and other forms of mass voting to raise votes, which is commonplace anywhere, but. either way i'm not shelling out any cash, lmao. apparently the gdas are the korean ~version of the grammys, or they call themselves that. this, the smas and the korean music awards are the most "legit" ones but the kmas are more from non-idols.

some of the winners are gonna be obvious, based on sales alone. a pink, beast, bts, cnblue, exo, f(x), snsd, got7, ikon, infinite, red velvet, shinee, sistar, taeyeon, vixx, mamamoo, taeyeon, ect. are all probably getting something. i want jonghyun to win something because he's been working non-stop this year but it might be hard and i could see yonghwa winning over him. (even tho his album legit put me to sleep.)

if jyp's vain enough (which he is!!!) i wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't send miss a or wonder girls because they both did better than him digitally, and he hasn't really been sending them to any award shows so far this year which is "????" to me.

i wish b1a4 would win something their whole mini was solid and i guess seventeen won't be there bc their concert starting on the 24th
smexyjae 10th-Dec-2015 07:08 pm (UTC)
um the award will be held on januaty 3016. not this december. pretty sure seventeen will come if they get invited :) hopefully so /prayhardforpledisconnections/
ocean_pig 10th-Dec-2015 06:30 pm (UTC)
Bonsang for bts please. Also daesang for Exo bc they had some great hits, sold well and it's been a tough year for them.
pseudo_shigure 10th-Dec-2015 06:56 pm (UTC)
since 80% is sale basically exo gonna win physical, BB digital "album" award (lol what album), and ikon for rookie. and the others gonna win thank you for coming award.
xxhna 10th-Dec-2015 07:04 pm (UTC)
pretty much this.
yw7 10th-Dec-2015 06:58 pm (UTC)
i love everything about got7 except for their music, so when i see the album nominated for things i'm just like ???. hopefully jonghyun gets a win from this!
racquelle2005 10th-Dec-2015 07:15 pm (UTC)
are you me? I love them as people but their music...although A was a true bop
snow830 10th-Dec-2015 06:59 pm (UTC)
OMG!! I read it as Golden Dish Award from the banner. Must be getting old..
yohan94 10th-Dec-2015 07:15 pm (UTC)
same.. that font
simprov 10th-Dec-2015 07:14 pm (UTC)
seeing clc in all the rookie award stuff just makes me sad because i was so into them after pepe but like was terrible and they haven't done anything since :(
leopolitan 10th-Dec-2015 08:05 pm (UTC)
im surprised they were even nominated honestly, they flopped harder than april
pseudo_shigure 10th-Dec-2015 07:20 pm (UTC)
just curious, how much does sale factor in grammy? bc it seems like korean awards always emphasize on that and that doesn't always equal good music, but more of a popularity award. but if that's the universal standard for music awards then i guess /shrug/
racquelle2005 10th-Dec-2015 07:23 pm (UTC)
well music is subjective and considering how shitty the grammy picks have been the last few years I wouldnt put much merit in committee voting either.
juhli 10th-Dec-2015 07:23 pm (UTC)
Reboot is such a great album, I hope the girls win .
racquelle2005 10th-Dec-2015 07:24 pm (UTC)
I do too but the sales were shit. I'm so salty because I feel you was the best girl group title track this year.
pseudo_shigure 10th-Dec-2015 07:36 pm (UTC)
just checked the list of daesang winners and it's been won by SM groups since 2008. how boring. what's the point of this really ahahahaha
bloodtaki2 10th-Dec-2015 10:14 pm (UTC)
You just get Beast squashed in the middle of it. haha
miuratenshi 10th-Dec-2015 07:47 pm (UTC)
The committee needs to hold more weight imo. The sales percentage makes this look like a popularity contest.
chukachukachoo 10th-Dec-2015 07:54 pm (UTC)
i wish there was an award show based on quality because every nominee for album of the year being an idol group doesn't sit right with me, especially since people like to call this show more "legit". But money talks i guess?
