SM and JYP are heading back to the pond, looking for new fish! Even after releasing new girl group Twice, JYP isn’t wasting anytime in looking for new recruits. And, SM which is recently rumored to be debuting a new girl group is also out looking for fresh fish with a global audition. JYP’s audition is more Korea focused.
SM Entertainment, in addition to looking within Korean, will be visiting a whopping 10 cities in China, and then will also head to Taipei and Hong Kong all in January-February of 2016. Then in February, 2016 will be heading to 5 U.S cities > New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. In March – April, SM will head to Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
SM Entertainment are really casting a very wide net, and are looking for singers, actors/actresses, models, dancers, as well as music lyricists and composers. SM isn’t playing – they are investing a lot in their future, which they clearly plan to fully dominate.
