Super Star K Auditions and Tryouts

Korean Auditions

The hit Korean show “Super Star K” is holding auditions in Los Angeles for it’s next season. “Super Star K” is the Korean version of the American Idol type shows that have become increasingly popular in the last few years. The program allows unknown singers and performers to compete at a shot to get their dream of stardom.

The Korean show and it’s producers have decided to also reach into the US to cast the upcoming season. Mnet Media, the cable channel that airs the show, announced the castings in the U.S.

Auditions are open to all ethnicities of any age that can sing in Korean. The auditioners must pass multiple rounds of auditions for “Super Star K”. A 1st qualifying round on the 26th, 2nd audition on the 27th and then winners of the previous round will be flown to Korea where they will compete against Korean talent.

“We have received requests for overseas auditions from people who wanted to try out and hopefully become the next winner of `Super Star K’. Considering that many singers who work in Korea have been chosen through auditions held abroad, we decided to hold one in Los Angeles as a start”, Kim Yong-beom, the chief producer of the show, said.

“The whole crew has high expectations, as the event will be held in the United States, the home of pop music. We hope this will be a chance where we can find and further nourish aspiring artists living in L.A”., he added.
