YG Entertainment opened an online audition site (www.yg-audition.com) on 18th May to scout for the next generation of pop culture.
YG Entertainment is known for debuting some of the top artistes in Kpop including Jinusean, Se7en, Gummy, and also top idol groups Big Bang and 2NE1. However it is known that there has not been a singer who debut through the company's open audition. The company previously held an open audition for the first time 6 years ago, and their stand was, “YG is a place where it is harder to become a trainee than a singer.”
Still, it is good news for aspiring singers with YG holding an open audition after 6 years. The audition will scout for talent in 3 fields – singing, acting and producing and will be held from 18th May till 22nd June in Korea and the States simultaneously.
The first window of online audition:
•Korea – 18th Jul
•LA – 3rd Jul
•New York – 10th Jul
Those who pass the auditions will undergo training in the company and given the chance to fulfill their dream.
A YG Ent rep said, “We look forward to having new talents join the YG family. If one is able to show one’s charms to the fullest, one will be able to achieve good results.”
The official social media sites for the audition will be:
