WINNER – the four-member boy band under YG Entertainment – is the latest K-Pop group to officially confirm their attendance at the Golden Disc Awards 2018.
Last month, South Korean Chinese boy band EXO, seven-member boy group BTS and 11-member boy band Wanna One also confirmed their presence at the annual award ceremony.
Other popular K-Pop groups to attend the event include GOT7 – the seven-member boy band, TWICE – the nine-member girl group and SEVENTEEN – the 13-member boy group.
Solo singers, like IU aka Lee Ji Eun, Yoon Jong Shin and Hwang Chi Yeol, will also set the stage on fire with their performance at the 32nd annual award ceremony.
South Korean indie band Hyukoh, the sub-group of boy band NU'EST called NU'EST W and the duo Akdong Musician have also confirmed their presence at the event.
Meanwhile, the members of WINNER – Jinwoo, Seunghoon, Mino and Seungyoon – are expected to hit the stage with a special performance.
Akdong Musician is being nominated for the first time at the Golden Disc Awards and only Lee Soo Hyun will be attending the event since her brother Lee Chan Hyuk is enlisted in military.
The award ceremony will be held in two parts – on January 10 the event will focus on digital releases and on January 11 the event will focus on album releases.
On January 10, the award ceremony will be hosted by Lee Seung Gi in association with Lee Sung Kyung. On January 11, the event will be hosted by Sung Si Kyung and Kang Sora.
