[111026] ‘2011 Golden Disk Awards’ to be held in Japan

The 26th ‘2011 Golden Disk Awards‘ has announced that it will be held in Japan this coming January.

Although ‘MAMA‘ created history by being the first awards ceremony to be held overseas, the ‘Golden Disk’ will be following in its footsteps this year.

On October 25th, representatives revealed, “Sponsored by Ilgan Sports, the ‘Golden Disk Awards’ will be held at the Osaka Dome on January 11th and 12th. It’s been in preparation for years now, but finalizations were finally made. They felt that it was the best location to truly show the power of K-Pop, considering how Japan is one of the biggest supporters of the Hallyu wave.”

A large factor in the ceremony’s decision to be held in Japan was also because of the establishment of jTBC, a subsidiary of the ceremony. jTBC will exclusively broadcast the ceremony live.

Another representative revealed, “With the fantastic opportunity of a great concert hall, we’re focusing our attention on raising the participation of singers. The ceremony will be directed by MBC PD Go Jae Hyung.”

The ‘Golden Disk’ is a prestigious awards ceremony first launched in 1986, and it nominates 10 singers of the year through album sales, digital sales, and phone votes. Last year, SNSD‘s “Oh!” took home the honorable ‘Daesang’.
