YG Entertainment will soon begin hunting for talented singers all around Asia.
On November 4th, YG Entertainment stated, “Next year, on January 28th, we will be revealing an open online audition (www.yg-audition.com). We will be looking forward to seeing talents that will be the future of YG Entertainment, as those who will succeed the nation’s best singers: Big Bang, 2NE1, Se7en, and Gummy.”
YG Entertainment began overseas auditions back in June for the first time in six years, and have been traveling to America and other overseas countries to hunt for talented singers. They have been receiving such a hot response that their official website even crashed due to heavy traffic.
For these auditions, the finalists from the online auditions will have a real life audition in Korea, which will be judged directly by YG’s head man, Yang Hyun Suk.
YG have been known to not hold open auditions in the past, however, the company has finally decided to extend the number of open auditions starting from June of this year.
“We like how people can show their strong talents in a short amount of time. If they don’t have confidence in having only one talent, working harder to show a variety of talents will net a good result,” said a representative of YG Auditions.
YG ASIA Auditions will commence at the beginning of 2011, starting from Korea, then to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, the YG Family Concert will take place this weekend, from 4 – 5th December.
