Seoul, Jan. 21 (CNA) Chou Tzu-yu (周子瑜), a Taiwanese teenage pop star,
left the recent flag controversy in Taiwan behind, as her girl pop group Twice won the best new performer award in Seoul Thursday evening.
Chou, better known as Tzuyu, and her Twice bandmates were honored as the best new performer in the music disc division at the 30th Golden Disc Awards held in Kyung Hee University.
Broadcast live on QTV, a cable TV station in South Korea, Chou and her fellow Twice members braved the city’s bitter winter weather to make their presence known at the award ceremony. The girl K-pop group, dressed in sexy all-black outfits, drew warm applause from their fans at the ceremony.
A popular South Korean K-pop boy band — SEVENTEEN — also snagged the best new performer award at the Golden Disc Awards. [FULL STORY]
