Here's how to get your road to K-pop stardom started:


Since 2006, the annual SM Global Audition has become a pivotal platform for uncovering K-pop stars from all over the world. Some of them are Wendy and Joy from Red Velvet, Yuta, Renjun, Johnny, and Mark from NCT as well as Amber Liu. The global auditions, which used to take place physically in selected countries, has been moved online this year due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
