Amidst the fiasco that began before the actual ceremony, The 28th Golden Disk Awards ended smoothly, awarding Psy and EXO as the biggest winners of the night.
Broadcasted on jTBC, the awards ceremony took place on January 16 at the Kyung Hee University Grand Peace Palace with several of 2013’s most popular groups with amazing performances.
With SHINee’s Minho, B2ST’s Yoon Du Jun, and CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa leading the way, the first half of the ceremony took place, highlighting some of the most popular songs of the year. Psy was awarded the Daesang for the Song Category for Gentleman. He promised to return with a more exciting song soon.
Part 2 continued with Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany and Taeyeon, and Oh Sang Jin taking the microphones as hosts. For the album category, EXO took the Daesang, jumping from the rookie award the group received in 2013.
Congratulations to all the winners!
