With their prior experience as idols, 2PM’s Nichkhun, 2NE1′s Gong Minzy, and Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun gave “KPOP Star” competitors some useful advice.
Seohyun, Minzy, and Nichkhun recalled their audition experiences in detail, and felt for the participants of SBS’s “Survival Audition KPOP Star”, in which participants compete for a cash prize and a record deal. They gave “KPOP Star” participants audition tips based off of their own experiences, and delivered sincere support messages.
Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun, who auditioned when she was in fifth grade, talked about her unique audition experience by revealing, “I actually sang a children’s song when I auditioned.” Seohyun stated, “My heart was fluttering and I was nervous. I didn’t think there was a way to look good to the judges. (What’s important for auditions is) your determination for reaching your own dream. You have to have a clear dream, and it’s important that you are prepared to accept any advice and things like that from someone. Only then will you be able to grow and continue on after accepting things.”
