The Next K-Pop Star!!!
So for all you Americans, we have American Idol. Now there are a whole bunch of versions of American Idol around the world and on American Idol we actually get a lot of international people who try out. Korea has their own version called SBS K-POP STAR and is a collaboration between the three big entertainment companies SM, YG and JYP. And instead of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson you've got international star BoA, Pop-Star and CEO J.Y.Park, and CEO of YG Entertainment Yang Hyun Suk.
Auditions have been taking place all over the world from France to Argentina. Contestants are judged on singing, dancing or rapping talent. You could win 300,000,000 KRW ($285,000,000) including the release of of international album and be accepted into YG, SM or JYP training programs! Oh, they train you good...whip you into shape!
