If you have been considering a K-Pop audition, the process may vary depending on the K-pop Entertainment company. Typically, the audition process will consist of filling out an online application form, uploading a profile picture, and creating a two-minute video. However, there are a few important factors that you should be aware of. Below is a breakdown of each step of the audition process.
First, you should know that idols have extremely demanding jobs with little or no recognition. While the job seems glamorous to them, the reality is far more challenging. Sadly, many companies do not treat their staff members well. To understand which companies are the best, we reviewed reviews posted on a Korean job portal. For example, RBW, home to popular Korean boy bands such as ONEUS and MAMAMOO, received an average score of 1.5 out of five, and the average annual salary at RBW is $21,300 USD.
Then, you should know what criteria entertainment companies look for. Some companies prefer candidates who are bilingual. In addition, K-pop entertainment companies want to attract a representative of a specific country. If you’re a native of Indonesia or India, you might be a good fit for a K-pop audition. In most cases, though, the top winners of live auditions will automatically become trainees.
