The excitement is there, as it was all on when I first start to write for Golden Disk Awards 2 weeks back. Gotten to know that its such a prestigious event that held in Korea and now its arriving to Malaysia. It had been label on par with Grammy Awards that all the Korean artist are eyeing for. This would be their 27th installment of South Korea’s famous ‘Grammy Awards’ is hosted by JTBC and Ilgan Sports, organized by Joongang Culture Media and Mediartncomm Co., Ltd., making its way for its first time to host in Malaysia, supported by the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) together with the Ministry of Tourism and presented by Samsung Malaysia Electronics as title sponsor. The awards fall into the two classifications of ‘Album’ and ‘Song’ awards with the addition of Popularity Voting for fans to support their favourite artistes such as the MSN Popularity Vote, Malaysia’s Most Favourite and GALAXY Star Award.
Finally the day of anticipation had come, excited to attend such a grand event as the first day of Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur (GDA) kicked off.

Not only that, all K-Pop fans arrive as early as 1pm right way before sitting under hot sun getting excited and waiting for the door to open. Right after the door open, all the fans running all their way to red carpet session.
I was lucky to have media tag and standing with all other official media newspaper, magazine and many more were all right in front of the stage. We were separated into 2 options whereby we can be here right for the first person to see the artist or can be up in the media room whereby the appearance and interview will be conducted there.
Baki Zainal one of a famous TV personality doing coverage.. Interesting to see how people actually do that for the first time ..
all fans are excited to meet their idol . .
When the first group of artist BTOB arrive, all fans went ecstatic shouting and cheering for their idol.
EXO, B1A4, BTOB & Junie
4 minute, & Shinee, KARA & BEAST
CNBlue & FT island
Heavy weight artist that make the whole crowd go wild is Super Junior.
After red carpet, all of us hurried to the main arena as fans definitely getting their prime spots (would be the best view) to standby and catch their favourite artist in action.
Humans start pouring in like crazy at Galaxy Zone and Rock Pit and when background music being played at that time, some fans even sing along.
As the time has come to kick off the grand event, the 2 emcee came out in style with individual performance of Yonghwa and Nicole.
Juniel is a young talented girl at the age of only 19 winning several awards, performing and strumming her guitar. She performed Illa Illa, Bad Man and My Love. Here music genre are slightly different from the rest of the artist.
4 minute performance is pretty good thoo, dancing with their long dress and voice is sweet tho.
A girl group that is no stranger to me and also looking forward for the night is KARA. Both of their songs Pandora”, “Mr.” I have heard before in radio station, just didnt know it was by them. A great performance by them.
BTOB performing 3 of their songs “Secret”, “WOW”, & “Candle”
Guess what? when they are standing in the dark, crowd already went crazy as the know its one of their favorite group. Super Junior is out on stage and performing.
Dancing crazily with all their dance move with 2 of their track “Bonamana”, “Oppa Oppa”
I seriously respect the energy level of them as they continue hyping the whole arena.

There were 15,000 screaming fans for the night to cheer their favourite artist and it end with a big bang. As the night ended, I enjoy myself alot with such grand event and the set back was media section was not located in the middle whereby I always thought media will have a good view. Hidden at a small compact area wasnt in my mind, and unable to acess all zone is also disappointing. Looking at the bright side, enjoying such a event was turn to my priority.
Great line up and congrats to all the artist that won away with the awards. You guys deserve it. For Day 2, stay tuned~
