K-Pop fans: Get ready to greet 2018 with a bang as 24-28 of your favorite artists are set to fly into Manila for the 32nd Golden Disc Awards for not just one but two grand evenings of what may be the biggest and most prestigious Korean awards show and music festival, presented annually by the Music Industry Association of Korea. Winners from the previous year include <a href="/music/exo">EXO</a>, <a href="/music/twice">TWICE</a> and <a href="/music/bts">BTS</a>, among others.

This will only be the fourth time the show will be held outside South Korea and the first time in the Philippines. "The Philippines' love for Korean entertainment is highly recognized in the industry," HM Entertainment's Steven Ko said.

The 32nd Golden Disc Awards will be Jan. 10-11, 2018, at the Mall of Asia Arena.

A Golden Ticket is a two-day pass that includes the special privilege of attending the red carpet event prior to the show. Only a limited number of Golden Tickets will be available.

"The red carpet is supposed to be a private event, but we're going to open it to fans as a gift," Alfredo Delos Santos of All Access Productions said.

AAP's Nina Tay also shared, "For our past shows, we give something back to the fans. That's our way of saying 'Thank you' for patronizing our shows."

Aside from the red carpet segment, awarding ceremonies and performances from some of the best K-pop acts in the scene, the Golden Disk Awards will also host special events for lucky attendees, such as fan activities and sponsor booths.
