Malaysia served it’s second helping of Golden Disk Awards last night, this time honouring winners for best digital sales.
Some of K-pop’s biggest acts flew in to walk the red carpet at the Sepang International Circuit venue in Kuala Lumpur,

FT Island’s Lee Hongki and SISTAR’s Dasom hosted the proceedings, which saw K.Will, Ailee, Huh Gak and popular rookie Lee Hi battle for gongs.
Big group winners of the evening included Teen Top, T-ara, B.A.P., Secret (who had to perform without Zinger, who is still recovering in Seoul), SISTAR and f(x), who surprised audience members and fans with remixed versions of their hit songs, as well as special collaborations
The biggest surprise of the night was hip-hop group Epik High’s Tablo, who hooked up with G-Dragon for a very special performance. Their rendition of ‘Light it Up’ had the crowd jumping and a possible preview of things to come in 2013, as the pair have spent more time in the studio recently.
Missing from the proceedings was PSY, who was unable to attend due to his commitments in the United States (and forthcoming trip to China), however the rapper was able to send in a message.
In a video message to recieve the Song of the Year award, the 35-year-old said: “I’ll be back in 2013 with an even more addictive sound, dance routine and music video. Please look out for it.”
It was the the 27th year of the Golden Disk Awards, which began in 1986. Unlike other award shows, winners are purely based on total album and single sales for the previous year (in this case, December 2011 to January 2012).
SISTAR’s Dasom later told reporters: “Many of you will know how hard SISTAR work. It’s been an incredible day. We feel so blessed and honored to have been acknowledged.”
The full show will be available to watch jTBC, January 19.
