BTS and iKON were among the big winners on day one of the 33rd Golden Disc Awards.

The South Korean music awards took place at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, with some of K-pops biggest stars in attendance.

And, surprising nobody, BTS took home a Best Digital Song Bonsang and the award for Global V Live Top 10 Best Artist.

RM joked that V should lead the acceptance speech for the V Live gong, considering the name of the award, and although shy at first, V told the audience: I only used to watch the awards on TV. It is surreal we are on the stage here, now. This is unbelievable.

iKON seemed totally stunned as Love Scenario was named Song Of The Year with the Digital Song Daesang, one of the Golden Discs biggest honours.

G(I)-dle were named Rookie Artist Of The Year; GFriend were awarded Best Female Group; and days after their official disbandment, Wanna One were named Best Male Group.

Other winners of the night included TWICE, BLACKPINK and Big Bang.

On Sunday, the Album Of The Year Daesang and Bonsang will be unveiled, following BTSs win for Love Yourself: Her in 2018.

The group beat the winning streak of EXO, who took the Daesang home the past four years with XOXO, Overdose, Exodus and ExAct.
