Nominees for the ‘25th Golden Disk Awards’ revealed!

The ‘Golden Disk Awards has recently revealed their nominees for its 2010 awards ceremony, set to be held on December 9th at Koryeo University.

The awards show first began in 1986, and since then, it’s become Korea’s most prestigious awards ceremony for music. Nicknamed the ‘Korean Grammy Awards,’ the ceremony is known for its fair standards, as the committee utilizes figures from album and digital music sales only.
