The Gaon Chart Music Awards have set the date for its upcoming ceremony!
On August 2, the Korea Music Content Association announced that the 9th Gaon Chart Music Awards would take place on January 8 of next year at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul.
The annual Gaon Chart Music Awards recognizes achievements in the music industry based on Gaon Chart data, reflecting both physical album sales and artists’ performance on Gaon’s various digital charts. This year’s award ceremony will also take into account data from Gaon’s newly revamped Social Chart 2.0, which reflects artists’ popularity abroad as well as within Korea.
A spokesperson for the Korea Music Content Association remarked, “Because more artists from different music genres charted high on this year’s charts than usual, we expect that a diverse array of artists will receive awards at the [9th Gaon Chart Music Awards] next January.”
