Initially, we thought that the first day of “Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur” (GDA) was massive enough. As massive as a K-Pop event could ever get. Boy, we were wrong! The second day of GDA (16th January 2013, Wednesday) saw the attendance of even more screaming fans, all armed with the mission to see as much of their favourite K-Pop idols/idol groups as possible.

For those of you who didn’t get to attend the red carpet event and for those of you who are curious about what went on during the media-only GDA day two press conference, you’re in luck! We’ve got a video footage of some of your favourite K-Pop idols/idol groups answering a couple of questions and leaving special messages for their loyal fans during the press conference:

And finally, as the first batch of over 25 of K-Pop’s biggest names in the Korean music industry departed from Malaysia, the second batch of artistes made their entrance into Malaysia for yet another exciting night! GDA day two opened with a special stage of Dasom (from K-Pop idol girl group, “SISTAR”) and Hongki (from Korean pop/rock band, “F.T. Island”) singing, “Way Back Into Love”. The night was then followed by mind-blowing performances by B.A.P, Lee Hi, Ailee, miss A, Teen Top, Epik High, and G-Dragon.
