Idol group SS501 won the best 10 new artist award at the 2008 Japan Golden Disk Awards on Tuesday.

The new artist awards are given to ten artists who debuted in the previous year and ranked top ten in the album sales and revenue category. SS501 was placed under the spotlight when the group released a single album titled "Kokoro" in Japan last August. Their debut album in Japan soared to 5th place in the Oricon daily chart and 10th in the weekly chart. Their popularity continued as they rolled out their second single album "Distance" in September and the regular album "SS501" in October. Both of these albums ranked in the top 20 of the Oricon weekly chart.

At this year's ceremony, Korean actor Park Yong-ha, who gained a huge following in Japan through "Winter Sonata", also won the best Asian artist award. Other Korean artists who were honored with a Golden Disk Award include Boa, Ryu Si-won, and Shinhwa.
