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.
