Big Hit Entertainment Is Looking For Stars To Follow BTS Footsteps, Here’s How You Can Join The Global Audition
Despite being a fairly young K-pop band, BTS has quickly taken the world by storm. The seven-member South Korean pop group has been breaking record after record, and there is a high chance that their popularity will open up doors for other artists, which is why Big Hit Entertainment is holding a global audition to search for the next big star.
On August 29, Big Hit Entertainment officially announced they'll be having a global audition this fall. A team will be traveling to Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, and Hong Kong from October to November to hold these auditions.
The official website noted that this is a male-only audition and the applicant must be born in 1998 or later. Aspirants can apply online, as well as on-site.
The audition will start in Vancouver on October 6, then will end in Hong Kong on November 4. More info can be found on their official website.
Meanwhile, Big Hit Entertainment may not be considered as one of the top labels in the K-pop industry at the moment, but BTS had already proven that artists can still reach the superstardom status even if they are being represented by a small company.
Talent, dedication, and hard work will always be huge factors in determining who stay on top. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have already proved their worth, and they quickly garnered a stable fan base, called the ARMYs. These dedicated fans helped BTS put their name out there and helped them reach the ultimate stardom as they are now known worldwide.
Despite having just one member who can understand and speak English, the band has been invited to several shows outside Korea, like The Ellen Show and American Music Awards. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Rap Monster, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have already won multiple awards outside Asia, and a lot of Hollywood celebrities started to take notice of the boys’ potential.
Their super successful AMAs 2017 performance has reminded everyone that non-English acts can also be big in the Western world. During these appearances, the BTS members have always shown humility, and they never fail to thank their fans for the love and support.
