[How to become a kpop trainee] How Red Velvet members could become idols
Seulgi was selected as SM's trainee through the agency's open audition took place in 2007, while Irene was chosen by SM in 2009. And Yeri passed SM’s audition in 2010. She was only 11 years old at the time. Wendy passed the agency's global audition took place in Canada in 2012, and Joy passed SM's global audition took place in Seoul in 2012. Well, if you want to become a trainee of SM Entertainment as a foreigner, yeah, Wendy could be a perfect example for you.
The 5 members have something in common, by the way. Seulgi can sing, dance, play a guitar, and speak Japanese, while Irene can sing, rap, and perform modern dance. Wendy speaks fluent English and can play various instruments such as flute, guitar and saxophone. Joy is eminent in singing and dancing. And Yeri, who has good basic skills is very talented and has a good sense of humor.
Yeah, all of them are versatile. To survive the competition, you need to stand out. When you participate in a k-pop audition, the most important thing is to differentiate yourself from the other participants because there are so many people who want to be selected as a k-pop trainee.
And one more thing you should keep in mind is that all the 5 Red Velvet members have endured at least 2 years of training period, competing desperately to get a chance to make a debut. It is never easy to survive among so many competitive trainees. It's like a jungle. Always be patient and endure hardships again and again.
Not easy to be a k-pop star, huh? Only people who do their best get the chance to make their dreams come true.
