Updates on YG Audition
About YG Audition, i have posted the information or guidelines (Info YG Audition) so to say, which i think basically answered all of your questions. But let me refresh your memory.
- Please use the KOREAN application form
- Only use ENGLISH form as a guideline for those who dont understand Korean. I even highlighted that part in red.
- Regardless if you’re chinese, malay, indian or others, if you have the talent, YG will consider you. As you have read the past articles about how tough it was for BB to be apart of Yg Family, so to have the talent to sing is a must. Raw Talent not only comprise in singing or dancing, it has to be everything. Safe to say that you got to have the “Persona” to be an artist at the first place. Being a trainee is just a bonus.
- So eventough you dont speak Korean, dont use that as an excuse. There are few korean artists who arent Korean at the first place. Like HanKyung of Super Junior (Chinese) and Nickhun of 2PM (Thai American) to name a few.
- When ur apart of the Ent Companies as a trainee, they’ll’ definitely send you for korean class to study. Dont worry about not knowing how to speak or read korean. But if you know, then thats ur advantage.
- What languages(s) to sing? Either one or anything that u feel comfortable with. You need to get their attention using ur TALENT. Thats ur priority.
- Its already stated in the post (Info YG Audition) where the demos should be sent to. To YG office in Korea. Please ignore any US address stated in the English form as you are not to use that at the first place.
Air ticket/Allowance etc
- If you’re shortlisted for the audition, you may need to pay for ur own air ticket and living expense while ur there.
- And if you’re picked to be their trainee, maybe, they’ll pay for everything. But this question is very vague and im being subjective as i can be. Coz i have no experience of such, so its pretty hard to say so eitherwise. So i do hope you understand.
Deadline / Audition (online)
- Deadline: there isnt any as of now. So you can send in your demos at anytime.
- Audition (online): well there was a news saying that YG will open the audition website in June. However due to several technical problems, they have to postpone that for now.
- Just do it the old school: Sing/dance, record and burn to a cd/dvd and mail it to YG.
- In case ur wondering if there’s any acknowlegement of receipt from Yg receiving ur demos or not, well i cant say. Unless they call you personally to come for an audition, then you wont know eitherwise.
Basically, all information given is pretty consise and understandable. Please follow what it say here and here (Info YG Audition).
And my apology for not answering some of your comments cause i see the answers had already been stated originally by YG and translated in the post accordingly. And thank you to those who’ve helped to answer some of the comments on my behalf.
