It has been announced that the 37th Golden Disc Awards will take place this year, including the nominations and the lineup for the first performance at the awards ceremony.
There are five categories in which awards can be given: Digital Song of the Year Division, Best Album of the Year Division, Special Awards, Rookie Artist of the Year Division, and Popular Vote Division.
It Was Another Thrilling Golden Disc Awards Show At The End Of The Year
We look forward to the 37th Golden Disc Awards (GDA), another thrilling year-end award show. Known as one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies in the South Korean entertainment industry, the award ceremony is a favorite among fans since it includes equally extravagant performances and one of the most highly acclaimed awards ceremonies.
During the 37th Golden Disc Awards ceremony on December 7, 2022, the 37th Golden Disc Awards announced the nominees and the first lineup of performances. In terms of categories, there are currently only three that have been released: the Album Division Bonsang, the Digital Song Division Bonsang, and the Rookie Artist of the Year. It is common for these categories to have more than one winner, meaning the nominations list for these categories is usually longer than the list for other award shows.
Aside from this, GDA’s first performance lineup includes six artists, including one of the most notable names in the third generation, SEVENTEEN. Because this will be the first time the VERY NICE group has performed at a year-end award show, their inclusion has elicited the utmost enthusiasm.
