The 35th Golden Disc Awards, the highest authority in Korea, will be held on January 9th and 10th next year.
On January 9th, the digital music category for selecting the song of the year will be held, and on January 10th, the awards in the album category for selecting the album of the year will be held face-to-face.
The targets for the ’35th Golden Disc Awards with Curaprox’ are the music and albums released from November last year to November 2020. Songs and albums that were excluded from the evaluation due to the previous year’s screening deadline are included in this review.
‘Golden Disc Awards with Curaprox’ again puts fairness as a top priority. It is an awards ceremony that discloses the process of selecting the winners in major categories and the evaluation scores of the expert evaluation team. This is why singers want to receive the most.
Candidates for major categories are selected through quantitative evaluation, such as the amount of music used and sales of music. Based on this, an expert evaluation team review is conducted.
Questions about the reliability of music charts are constantly raised, and in the 34th episode, the executive committee, consisting of six industry experts, including representatives from representative music distributors in Korea and music experts, increased the review rate from 30% to 40%. Again, the review rate is maintained at 40%.
The judging will be conducted by an expert evaluation team composed of 50 music experts, including the executive committee of the Golden Disc Awards, a music distributor, a broadcaster’s music program producer, a critic, and a music reporter. They perform qualitative evaluation by comprehensively considering musical performance and socio-cultural influence.
The Golden Disc Awards, which increased the value and weight of the award by excluding the online voting rate from the judging criteria to prevent the awards in major categories such as the Main Prize, Grand Prize, and Rookie Award from becoming popular awards, reflects the online voting score only for the Popularity Award.
The ‘Golden Disc Awards’ has been running for 35 years, starting with the first episode in 1986. It has established itself as the best music festival due to the fair award results and the creative stage direction and planning. The broadcast will be broadcast live on JTBC, JTBC2, and JTBC4.
