K-Pop music awards season is coming faster than you think. And it's actually the busiest time of the year for all K-Pop fans across the globe (especially in South Korea), as nominations are given left and right for the active groups and artists today.

And with nominations come voting. Almost all music awards give fans the opportunity to vote for their faves on a daily basis.

The awards season is clearly not a joke. And on that note, while you think that there is enough award shows that exists right now, well think again.

In fact, there's a new awards season on its way! On June 3, M2, MNET's Digital Channel, along with Genie, the No. 1 Digital Music Platform, is forming new awards show.

The two companies will host the 2019 M2 X Genie Music Awards (2019 MGMA).

Taking on a different path versus other K-Music awards, the 2019 MGMA will be focusing solely on digital content. It looks to focus on the current trend of how people enjoy music, including how they find and share content online.

The awards show is set to share the preparation process of the event through different forms of digital content. 2019 MGMA said that they will select and award "the most loved music, artists, content, and creators of all time."

The 2019 MGMA will be on August 1, 2019, at the Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, South Korea. There will be live broadcasts of the awards shows in its website, and the mobile applications of Genie Music, MNET, and M2.

The 2019 MGMA will be joining the numerous awards ceremonies at the latter part of the year.

Among the very well-known awards shows in Korea include the MNET Asia Music Awards (MAMA), Korean Music Awards, Gaon Chart Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards, Asia Artist Awards, Asia Song Festival, Melon Music Awards, Seoul Music Awards, Soribada, and Best K-Music Awards.

Most awards show in Korea take place in the last quarter of the year to the first few months of the following year.

Among the awards given to different groups in the ceremonies include Best New Artist, Popularity Award, Best Male Artist for both group and solo, Best Female Artists for both male and female, Best Music Video, Best Dance Group, Best OST, and many more.

Meanwhile, grand prize awards or what they call "Daesang" are given by all Music Awards hosts.

Commonly, there are three Daesangs given: Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year.
