JYPE to hold auditions to form a band
JYP Entertainment is joining forces with Korea National University of Arts (KNUA) for the 1st JYP Band Audition.
JYPE is known for creating some of Korea’s biggest K-pop stars such as Rain, Wonder Girls, 2PM, 2AM, J-Lim (Lim Jeong Hee), g.o.d. and Byul. As opposed to their usual auditions that focused on singing and dancing, this will be the first time that JYPE is holding auditions for people who play instruments.
The first requirement for this audition is that you have to have been born between 1987 and 1996. There are no limitations on race, gender and schooling. The audition categories are guitar (acoustic, electric or bass), drums, piano and synthesizer.
In order to apply, you must upload a video of your performance to Daum TV pot by July 5th. Those who have been chosen from the online audition will be invited to the final in-person audition to be held on July 10th at the KNUA SAC Art Center. Those who are accepted in the final audition will be given the opportunity to train under JYPE and also will be given admissions to KNUA with a scholarship.
JYP Entertainment is going to be busy in July with miss A’s debut, 2PM’s 1st concert and this audition.
