Sm Auditions By Email?

It really sucks that this years global auditions are being held the 28th of Sept (in NY) because I have somewhere important to go (my parents are forcing me to go actually T^T) so, obviously, I can't make it.

So then I started going through the SM official website and I clicked on auditions and saw that they accept auditions by e-mail or mail.

It says "The audition can be organized here or in foreign countries" so does that mean if I e-mail them an application some time during the summer it's possible they'll make me audition here in the US? or will I have to wait for next global auditions or something?

Has anyone ever e-mailed/mailed in an audition application? Will they really spend money to come all the way from Korea just to see you audition hoping that you have talent?

Well anyways, right now I'm just really worried about my age since I'm already 16 going on 17 in March v___v

no they won't buy a plane ticket all the way here just so you can have a private audition. they'll recommend you to go to the "next" global audition. I tried emailing before and they just told me to audition at the global audition. i'm not sure they check their mail though and if you are going to mail you have to be really good.

email is not a actual audition its only for applications. However mails are actual audition procees. You record urself in a cam,

i have tried email audition already and they replied so they definitely check their mail.

but they wont send a rep just to come see you...you would have to go to them unless its at hte global audition

but i think they rarely accept email auditioners cuz its like less formal of an audition i guess?

so i think your best shot is to go to the global auditions live next year or to send in a demo cd of somesort.

eek...just sent them an email audition...forgot to enter my race and natiionality...oops!!

Included 4 short clips...super bad quality because I recorded them from my phone lol...soooo not even expecting a response at all coz I sound awful on them :( ....should have waited and made better clips but recorded them whilst the parents weren't in the house so they don't start asking questions lol.

I'll attach them to my profile in a sec so you guys can say what you think of my bad audio clips and awful pronunciation.....gosh I'm so positive....:P

if they really think you have talent and the appereance....i think they'll definitely come for u if you not in korea but i think they'll probably tell the people from u.s to come to the global audition cos it happens their every year and they wouldn't be that nice to come and see u if there is a easier way [the global audition]

IF they think you have talent, they will go ahead and schedule an audition

that's ONLY if you seem promising and have potential.

otherwise, they'd tell you to participate in the global audition T___T

I asked them if I could apply even though I am mixed - because I didn't see the point in applying if they would immediately disregard me. The person in charge of the global auditions replied and said that it would be fine and they would still accept my application...but they took so long to reply I didn't end up going to the New York audition... -_-

probably you get almost an equal chance if you put in your email audition vs going to an open audition because even if someone tries tries to pull something on the first round, they'll get caught in the second round. I want to put in an email audition because i really don't know the status of my dancing or my singing and I don't want to embarrass myself on the first level. i guess it's more of a confidence thing. I'm guessing that if you life in CA and you make it to the second round, they'll refer you to the SM entertainment offices in LA.

They said that mixed is fine btw just in case any one was interested...

I'm thinking of re-doing the songs I sent them as I didn't give it my all the recordings were poor quality.

I'm thinking of singing parts of Afterglow, This Time (WG), Your Colour (or maybe Everlasting) by BoA and Rhianna's Unfaithful. Just like a verse and a chorus though but I think these songs would show a range since they're all different languages. I should probably sing an upbeat song but those types of songs often don't have difficult singing parts and I want to show my best!

What do you guys think?
