Posters from the ones I went to. Kpop Cover Dance Competition and SM Audition (with SNSD & EXO-M on it^^).

I suppose the Big 3 (SM, JYP, YG) have been here twice, both through their individual company auditions and through K-pop Star, an audition show that the Big 3 participate in. I hope this means that the K-pop world is now recognizing Australia more and will bring more K-pop artists down undah, haha. *sigh* If only they’d come to host more kpop concerts and fan-meetings here…but it’s great to see them starting to recognise Australia as a place for finding kpop star talent. :) Some Aussies currently in Kpop include:

  • C-clown – Rome/Barom Yu
  • ZE:A – Kevin Kim (from my friend’s high school, Epping Boys)
  • One Way – Peter & Young Sky
  • LedApple – Hanbyul (from Brisbane, Qld)
  • EvoL – Hayana/Kristine Yoon
  • Dalmatian – Day Day/David Kim (From NZ but hey, close enough.)
SM Youth Audition Application I filled out on the day.
