As we reach the final days of 2011, Korea's popular primetime channels SBS, KBS and MBC will be hosting a multitude of award shows to wrap up the year with a bang. With 9 programs on our plates --that's 3 gayo daejun (music festival) shows, 3 entertainment award events, and 3 drama award ceremonies -- allkpop has compiled a handy schedule guide to sum up what's to come. Since announcements are still being released daily, this guide is still incomplete and will be updated accordingly, so remember to keep checking back!
