Last year, the AAA was held on Dec. 13 at the Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya, Japan. 

The AAA, launched in 2016, is the first integrated awards ceremony in Korea that awards actors and singers together. It recognizes stars in music, film and television. 

The 2023 AAA is hosted by Star News and co-hosted by the Asia Artist Awards Organizing Committee, TONZ Entertainment, and Philippine promoter Pulp Live World. 

Happee Sy-Go of Pulp Live World confirmed the news. 

"We at PULP LIVE WORLD are very honored to have been chosen as the Philippine partner to host this year's Asian Artist Awards. We look forward to the privilege of showcasing the very best of our country's warmth and hospitality to Asia's great stars and to making this year's AAAs a tremendous success for everyone involved," she told Manila Bulletin
