Knowing what to expect

If you’re interested in auditioning, the thought of competing against people from 15 other countries can be quite intimidating.

But fret not, because we are here to offer you some help.

Firstly, to give you a gist of how K-pop auditions are held, here’s a video of a K-pop trainee sharing about her audition process.

However, as her audition was not with Big Hit Entertainment, we can’t say for sure how similar the 12 Oct auditions will be compared to the video.

Pro tip: you might also want to start training on your flexibility skills. This video shows that flexibility is something K-pop idols are required to have.

It’s always good to be a few steps ahead.

Confidence is key for BTS auditions

Lastly, as cliché as it sounds, confidence is key.

So practise hard, and be confident during the audition. You could be among the lucky ones to make it through.

Here’s a video of BTS to motivate you further.
