The 2016 30th Golden Disk Awards have come to a close after two days with the biggest winner of the night being EXO whom took home the all important “Album of the Year” award for their album EXODUS, like their win at the Seoul Music Awards, EXO are now the first group to take home the Album of the Year award for three consecutive years. The boys also won a Bonsang and Most Popular Global Artist however all these wins does not erase the fact that they turned up to the red carpet in possibly their worst outfits since their debut (which you can see below). Tonight the event was MC’d by Jun Hyun Moo, Super Juniors Leeteuk and F(x)’s Krystal whom replaced leader Victoria who couldn’t make the awards. SM took home the most awards for the night with four of their six active groups all taking home a Bonsang (although Red Velvet and SNSD received Bonsang’s from Day 1) so technically all of SM’s active groups won a Bonsang at this years Golden Disk Awards.

The nominees for the upcoming Mnet Asian Music Awards aka the MAMA’s have finally been announced and there’s some fierce competition this year (although I do question the inclusion of the rookie groups that have debuted for less than six months in the ‘Artist of the Year’ category). The Big Bang guys lead the pack this year with five nominations which consists of ‘Best Male Group‘, ‘Best Music Video‘ for their song “Bae Bae” off their M mini album, ‘Best Dance Performance‘ for “Bang Bang Bang” which is off their A mini album the song is also up for ‘Song of the Year‘ and they’re also up for ‘Artist of the Year‘ as well. SM Entertainment super group EXO are nominated for four awards this year including ‘Best Male Group‘, ‘Best Dance Performance‘ for their song “Call Me Baby“, which is also nominated for ‘Song of the Year‘ and the boys are also nominated for ‘Artist of the Year‘. Currently only CNBLUE, BTS, GOT7 and Zion.T are confirmed to perform at the awards which will take place on the 2nd of December in Hong Kong. Continue reading
