Psy is also among the big names who will be honoured at the annual Samsung Galaxy 27th Golden Disk Awards (GDA) on Jan 15 and 16.
To be held for the first time in Malaysia at the Sepang International Circuit, the event is dubbed as the South Korean version of the Grammy Awards. GDA is set to be the biggest K-Pop event ever held in the country, where many popular K-Pop artistes are expected to grace the event.

This is the second time that the awards ceremony will be held outside of South Korea.

Since its debut in 1986, GDA has been recognised as a platform in giving recognition to artistes in the South Korean music industry.
