Updated announcement regarding 8th GAON Chart Music Awards revealed
With music awards scheduled for this month and the following, slowly information on the event is given. In particular, news on 8th GAON Chart Music Awards has been released. So, check it out below!
It was revealed that GAON Chart Music Awards will be removing the popularity award that is decided on 100% fan votes. This decision was made due to “Many awards shows are being held now and the market saturation has risen. Both the singers and fans have become increasingly tired and thus the symbolism of a music awards show has been lost. We are aware that we are not free from responsibility for the current state however we are determined to do something.”
So, as mentioned above, the first thing they will do is by removing the popularity award so that it doesn’t cause a high level of competition among fandom. Secondly, they have made changes to the ticket reservation system in order to prevent scalping. Although it won’t completely remove scalping, it will be able to ensure that there is a way to preventing it from helping. Finally, they will also focus on the presenters to allow a full appreciation for everyone.
Meanwhile, the event will be held on January 23rd, 2019 at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium. What do you think of the changes? Let us know in the comments below!
