'33rd Golden Disc Awards' excludes online voting in select categories for fairness

Online voting is excluded from several categories of the upcoming '33rd Golden Disc Awards.'

On December 5, the '33rd Golden Disc Awards' announced their award show will take place on January 5-6, 2019. Once again, the award ceremony plans to put fairness as its top priority. 


In order to prevent winners solely based on popularity, online voting will be excluded from the 'Bonsang,' 'Daesang,' and 'Best New Artist' categories. Similar to last year, the winner will be chosen based on the number of album sales, digital download, and evaluation by experts. The experts include 30 music program producers, music critics, and K-pop reporters. 

Music releases from December 1, 2017 to November 30, 2018 are considered for nomination. 

The '33rd Golden Disc Awards' is scheduled to broadcast live on JTBCJTBC2, and JTBC4

Because there are many mega hits like Jang Deok Chul's Good Old Days or Shaun's Way Back Home but non-idols like them can't win any awards if there is online voting included. I'm glad they chose to exclude online voting in the categories that actually matter. Korean music is much more than just KPop and every other show is basically idolfest anyways.

NICE! Daesangs should be determined from sales and judge scores only.

makes sense to me. there's a difference between popularity with the pubic and having a big fandom that votes every day

these are still popularity awards though if they're based on sales numbers.

Good! This is how it should always be done! I understand if people vote for awards such as popularity, but other awards need to be based on quality of music.

It's so much better. Those awards mention should be based on the quality and not popularity.

This is just another attempt to control the outcome. You do not want fans to have a voice. Have Golden Disc Awards ever heard of democracy? This is another form of blacklisting. Your so called experts are industry insiders who can be controlled by the powerful and that leaves the artist at a disadvantage. Fans are just as important in voting as so called experts.

This is exactly why GDA are getting rid of some online voting for some categories. Look around at all the other award shows, its literally based on popularity. Not all songs should be based on the popularity of it. Plus, GDA is only omitting online voting for 3 categories. I'm not sure what the Bonsang is, but I know the Daesang and Best New Artist can be very special for those who earn it. Imagine winning Best New Artist because of popularity, the category and the meaning of it now changes.

Votes are not decided solely on popularity. CD sales, solos, downloads and experts also are percentages of the votes.

IKonics will have no emotions there then, LC will easily get the Daesang. That is good news.

BTS will be winning the album daesang with or without fan votes. Stay tuned for the new year when they win it.

That's great! Fans are tired of voting, it gives the idols a chance to receive awards, except for that-boy-group-who-must-not-be-named.

Actually, other groups have higher chances of winning if there is online voting. If the awards are given based on album sales, we can clearly see who will win 😬.
