It's the time of the year where major entertainment agencies SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment open their doors to audition promising trainees. So what arrangements have the two agencies put in place for their 2013 auditions respectively?
Firstly, SM Entertainment will hold their '2013 S.M. Global Audition in Korea' starting from January 25th till March 10th in Seoul, Incheon, Daejeon, Gwangju, Daegu, and Busan. They will also use this opportunity to set their sights on countries outside of South Korea.
SM Entertainment will divide their auditions into 4 categories namely: singing, dance, modeling, and acting. Regardless of nationality, sex, age, and others, you can give it a go if you have the required talent. The final winner from the auditions will ink a trainee contract with SM Entertainment. Interested applicants can apply through SM Entertainment's official website, email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or everysing application (www.everysing.com) for a chance to join the auditions. Details regarding the audition can be viewed through SM Entertainment's official website (www.smtown.com) or their official audition FaceBook account (facebook: www.facebook.com/smaudition).
Meanwhile, JYP Entertainment will be holding their auditions on January 5th in Busan, and January 19th - 20th in Seoul. JYP Entertainment will be revealing on December 24th the finalists who made it to the final auditions and the subsequent winner at a later date. According to sources, the JYP rookie discovery team will use a new ruling called 'JYPass' to commemorate the 10th year of JYP auditions. Among the UCCs submitted by applicants to Daum, the team will select a participant that is really creative and talented to go directly to the finals with this 'JYP Pass'.
JYP Entertainment revealed, "We have already opened the application channel through Daum's website and Daum TV App on December 7th, and have received lots of enquiry phone calls from interested applicants daily. We hope that many will take the opportunity to participate and realize their dreams with JYP Entertainment."
