@sarahkc nope, sadly i'm not a part of sm. i wish i was, but i'm not. 

maybe i'll try audition for sm though but i'll go for other ents too. maybe jyp, cube or fnc idk. i really wish they would debut a "older" group around my age in future but this is the era of kids debuting and shaking their asses in front of the camera. and the trend is the younger the better so yeah, i'm a ahjumma right now xD i think it's a bit unfair to sort out the people born 1990-1993/1994 because we're still young and have dreams like the younger ones but in the end it's not our choice and we have to accept that. reminds me of that one girl in baby kara who was already 23, i really liked her and wished she would make it but in the end she lost against a younger girl which also was (in my opinion) not so talented like she was.

ooookay so everyone is talking about the new sm girlgroup huh? i'm looking forward to their debut but i'm wondering if it's now too late to audition for another sm girlgroup? i'm 92-line and i bet they'll debut a boygroup first, maybe in 2-3 years and in 4-6 years a girlgroup and that means i'm already too old to debut or become a trainee. T_T should i try for another company or would you stay with sm if you were me? 

i wanted to finish school first so i can focus on my dream better and don't have problems with school or drop out of school but it seems that this decision has good and bad sides. sm always was my first choice and it still is because i think i as a person fit better into sm than other companys. it's not like i wouldn't go for other companys but i always had sm in mind and always focused on am and now it seems like the doors for ppl my age are closed now. i don't know what to do. is sm still a opportunity and worth a try or not?

안녕하세요!

So today, I attended the SM Monthly Audition in LA, USA!!!

And I will now share my experience with you guys :D

My memory is SUPER CLEAR so you guys can trust everything I say below :)

 

So first, I got to the building like at 1:54 p.m. (on the 3rd floor) and the door opens at 2:00 p.m. so I waited for 6 minutes and there was already 4 people waiting outside. Then the lady, who will be the judge in the audition room, came and open the door for us. On the counter will be a stack of registration papers. You just take one and a pen and fill in all the info, when you are done you just give it to the lady (remember to sign at the signature blank xD) and she'll tell you to wait until she calls you. I was the first one the turned the paper in (shame on me -_-) so after about 15 minutes she called me in with 4 other people as the first group. And the TV playing SM music was too loud -_- so I couldn't warm up (quietly) properly :(. By when I was called in there was already 20 people in the waiting room! My group was me, two other girls who is older than me -_- and two tall - really tall dudes. The lady lead us inside the waiting room, it looks like a practice room -- mirrors on three walls and posters in the back wall. We lined up along the blue tape against the posters wall. The camera was those small rectangular ones - which I find interesting xD, it is set up on the table the lady sits.  Firstly, the lady will call your name and give you a sticker number and then might ask several questions to some certain people to clear up what might be vague in the form. Next, she will ask if anyone had attend an SM audition before. She will then explain how the audition will works: 

1. Introduce Yourself - You say your NAME, AGE, and then YOUR STICKER NUMBER. Next will be your SCHOOL and GRADE (If Not In College Yet) and state your TALENT (sing/dance/rap)

2. Show Your Talent - If you are singing or rapping then you will recite the chorus or highlight of a song (there will be a rare chance of you being ask to sing a different song) If you are dancing then it will be free-styling to a random song played (you will be instructed how to not cross a certain boundary so the camera can get a hold of you ^^) 

Something was different this time. In other experience blogs I read about said that you will have to stand in front of a seperate tape near to the camera. This time we just stay where we are and the lady will just position the camera towards you. I was first in line (the order goes from left to right) so I went first. I introduced myself after the lady gave a cue (a really weird cue lol) and sing a song (you can stop whenever you want-but don't sing the whole song lol). After I finished the lady fixed the camera to the next person in line and gave him a cue and so on. After everyone finished we did the rhythm test to Britney Spears's "3". We were instructed to clap to the beat or just freestyle (staying in one spot because there isn't even space xD). Luckily, I knew the song so well (A Britney Spears Hardcore Fan) so I knew the beat and how it goes and clap proudly ^^. So if you know the song, in the beginning there will be claps at the beat -- very easy anyone can do this. The guy next to me start freestyle clapping and did unnecessary but impressive claps to the beat. Everyone else including me just clapped to the simple beat :) After that the lady explained to us how it will take 2 months for a response if you pass the audition (and how they even text you now xD) and if you didn't get any response you are welcome to come back and audition again. She also told us about an incident that happened at KCON -- that there was a man, white and Caucasian, his name is >•< I can't remember well but it is like Bernie or something and he is DISGUISING AS AN SM SCOUTING PERSON AT KCON - And unfortunately was kidnapping girls...They have reported him but haven't caught him yet :3 Yeah...So just something to warn ya

SO IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK ME FOR THE UPDATED AND TRUE INFO :D

if you're taking the singing audition, you should try doing a powerfull song. make sure you're the loudest among the others. that's what catches sm's attention for the first stage of the audition. you should prepare a high note song too. since last year i went to audition and made it to the callbacks.

at the first audition, i was asked to stay and they asked me if i could sing another song, something louder than my first song. and at the callbacks, they asked me to sing a high note song. since i didnt prepare anything, i went blank. i know. lame right. make sure you guys dont make the same mistake like i did~ good luck people!

I'm going to audition for Sm global audition next year. I have so many questions to ask. Someone please answer my questions, i would be so thankful/ grateful.

QUESTIONS:

1. I didn't attach a photo of myself when i applied for the audition online. Do i need to bring a photo of myself with me to the audition?

2. How many songs do i need to prepare for the audition?

3. How do you know if the judge is interested?

4. Will Sm contact my school? Since i need to fill out which school i go to.

5. Will i need to prove i speak the languages i stated in the application?

6. In the Sm global audition form that we fill in on the day, am I not allowed to write my yahoo email? Because i saw a sm global audition form on google and next to email it had in brackets except yahoo.

7. Do i just write my name in the signature place if i don't have a signature?

8. Is it a disadvantage if i am short? Btw I'm a girl and 157cm.

That's all the questions for now ;)

I think all that matters is the way you treat singing i.e. how serious you are about your career, and how good you are at it. Dressing up and other stuff is only to give them good impressions.

If you got accepted you and your parents will get a tour around SM Entertainment HQ, and you'll get to meet some of the artist and Lee Soo Man will explain to your parents what will happen to you when you are a trainee, then if your parents choose to sign the contract then you're lucky. If not then you basically just wasted your whole time auditioning for nothing.

 

Does it really have to be your parents? Can it be guardians/siblings? what if you went to audition in Korea yourself and your parents weren’t able to fly to korea to sign the contract..are there any other way to sign the agreement? Can you sign it yourself if you’re 18??

 

Also if you audition in Korean rather than gobal, do you have to know how to speak Korean? Can you speak English to them instead?

 

Are there any other weekly auditions out there except Korea?

 

For the whole 3 rounds of auditioning. All of them are acapella yeah? No music for all of your song or the 3rd round when you meet Lee Soo Man, you have to sing/rap w music?

 

Im ok with singing (not really good i would say lol), i can do a little of freestyle dancing, Im more confident with rapping. Can i rap for all of my rounds in auditions? Or i still have to sing??

 

Im planning to go to the L.A weekly audition but im all the way from Australia which takes around 14-15hours of flight. Is it better to stay in USA for 3-4months(which i might get broke/out of money) or after auditions, stay for a month then fly back to my country and wait until they asked me to come again? Will they tell you ON that day or few days before the day they want to see you again since i fly back to my country and fly to USA again.

 

Can you please also tell me the address for L.A weekly auditions? thank you^^

(Sorry for asking too much...)
