Alas, the 2015 awards season is coming to a close. Tonight the 24th Seoul Music Awards, or Seoul Gayo Daesang, will be broadcasting live from the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics stadium. The ceremony marks the conclusion of the 2014 K-pop awards festivities.
Fans have been dedicatedly voting for weeks in the hopes that their favorite groups will take home the biggest awards.
The Seoul Music Awards are decided by combined factors of 20% fan vote, 10% popularity poll (conducted through Sports Seoul), 40% physical and digital sales and 30% judges scores. While the judging criteria is slightly more complex that other broadcasts, the awards are held in high regard by fans who feel they have a say in who takes home the trophies each year.
This year’s ceremony is sure to be a star studded affair, with groups like Exo, Girls’ Generation TTS, VIXX, Sistar, Taemin, Beast, AOA, BA14, Girls’ Day, Red Velvet and GOT7 all reported to be in attendance.
