The upcoming 2024 Hanteo Music Awards will mark the 31st anniversary of the annual awards ceremony that has for so long recognised artists in their best element. Musical contributions for the past year are judged based on the Hanteo Chart listings. Max Changmin of TVXQ will helm this year’s extravaganza, slated to be held on February 17 and 18, 2024, at Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul.
Hanteo Music Awards in Seoul comes after the previously held prestigious events – Circle Chart Music Awards, Golden Disc Awards in Jakarta and Seoul Music Awards. With 50 music acts nominated for the top spot, Artist of the Year, big names like NCT DREAM, SEVENTEEN, NewJeans, (G)I-DLE, aespa and others have made it to the qualifying list. The award criteria will consider the combination of the Hanteo Global score, global voting score and judging score. Here’s what we know about the forthcoming night of musical stars.
