On January 11th, it has been reported that this year’s Golden Disk Awards have been moved from the original location of Shenzhen, China, to Seoul, Korea.
Although originally slated to be in China on January 20th and 21st, a number of landslides in the Shenzhen area late last December have caused event organizers to reconsider for the sake of artists’ safety.
For instance, an accident on December 20th led to the disappearance of 77 and deaths of 58.
Artists such as SHINee, BIGBANG, BTS, f(x), and more are slated to attend the event.
