Drama Note 23: SM Global Cast Auditions

Kim Jo Han – Love is Late, I’m Sorry ft. Jessica (SNSD)

This is going to be a pretty short post, but I think that it might be helpful for a lot of kpop and kdrama fans. So the grand SM Entertainment is holding their 2008 Global Auditions from early September to October 25. They aren’t exatly “global”, but nevertheless, the auditions will be held in about 8 locations in United States and Canada. Locations include Vancover, Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Washington D.C. For those of you who don’t know what SM Entertainment is…. It is one of the biggest entertainment businesses in Korea and has produced some of Korea’s most famous celebrities such as DBSK, Super Junior, Fly to the Sky, and most recently Girls’ Generation. The auditions will be held in the various locations on different dates and the categories are as follows: dancing, singing, lyrics/composing, modeling, film actor, and TV actor. I’m guessing that out of all the categories, singing will be the most competitve since SM focuses mostly on singing, but the other categories are definately worth a try. By my knowledge, there are several auditions if you make past the first round and you are eventually picked in the final round, you become a SM Trainee and you train for at least three to four years or even more depending on your progessive and then the rest is self explanatory.

A lot of people take the auditions extremely seriously especially some of the older applicants so it is very important that you show respect to others if you choose to audition. Of course it is okay to try out just for the heck of it, for some fun and experience. So don’t be afraid and go audition!
