Update: The 32nd Golden Disk Awards will not be held in Manila anymore. The event which is set for January 10 and 11, 2018 will be held in South Korea and will be hosted by Lee Seung Gi and Lee Sung Kyung.
The Filipinos’ love for everything South Korean has gone of the charts. We’ve held far too many K-Pop concerts and events to count, plus all the fan-organized meets regularly happening all around the country. The most heartwarming welcome would always come from the Filipinos, as foreign celebrities would usually say during their concerts.
Just a few days ago, All Access Production PH, announced that South Korea’s highly anticipated annual awards show and music festival is coming to the Philippines for two whole days. All the biggest K-Pop bands, solo artists, and celebrities for 2017 will be flying to Manila this coming January to participate in the 32nd Golden Disk Awards.
The Golden Disk Awards (GDA) 2018 was founded in 1986 to recognize outstandingly talented groups and individuals in the South Korean music scene .
This year, the Golden Disk Awards will be held for the very first time here in Manila at the Mall of Asia Arena from January 10 to 11, 2018. This is only the fourth time the GDA will be held abroad. Past countries who have hosted the prestigious awards show include Japan, Malaysia, and China.
Golden Disk Awards Manila 2018 Lineup: K-Pop Groups, Solo Artists
There is still no official account as to the setlist or Golden Disk Awards 2018 lineup for the two days but All Access Productions revealed to Rappler that the K-Pop groups for the GDA 2018 lineup will include “those who were active and promoted in 2017.” If we’re talking this year’s most active and most popular, we’re kind of confident BTS, EXO, GOT7, Red Velvet, Apink, IU, G-Dragon, and Crush (among many others) will be there for the event.
These groups and solo artists have released hit albums and singles this year so we are expecting them to be flying to Manila next year.
