The 23rd Golden Disk Awards took place last night, 10th December at the Seoul Olympic Hall with male group DBSK and female group Jewelry ending up as the winners for the Disk and Digital Daesang Awards respectively.
This year, the organizers had created Daesang awards separately for both the Disk and Digital Bonsang (music) categories. Thanks to it’s oustanding album sales of more than 460,000 copies for Mirotic, it became the best-selling album of the year. And with the same album winning the Best Album of the Year at last month’s 2008 MKMF, they have become double Daesang winners.
Jewelry meanwhile had a stranglehold on the digital realm, thanks to their One More Time song which dominated mobile charts, online music charts, etc. The E.T. dance move in the song also became one of the highlights in 2008.
It’s just weird that Big Bang and many others did not turn up nor win anything.
