K-pop Trainee’s Daily Schedule
I’m sure you’re very curious about k-pop trainee’s daily schedule. Well, it differs from case to case, but let me explain about the general case. If you become a k-pop trainee, you should follow the daily schedule below.
8 a.m. : School attendance
As most of k-pop trainees are students, they should go to school in the morning. They try not to skip breakfast if possible because it’s important for them to manage their health. At their school, they take classes just like the other ordinary students, but they usually listen to music during break time to make preparations for their weekly test. They sometimes write song lyrics, while there are also some passionate trainees who practice singing and dancing at their school.
5 p.m. : Go to practicing room
After school is over, trainees go to their practicing rooms. The first thing they do when they arrive at their practicing rooms is give their cellphones and diaries to people who manage them. They get their cellphones back after they finish all the daily lessons because cellphones could be a distraction while practicing. And k-pop trainees usually keep a diary every day to record their learning process. K-pop agencies offer dinner to their trainees, but trainees usually can’t eat much because they have to watch their figure.
6 p.m. : Take lessons
After dinner, k-pop trainees take various lessons including singing lessons and dancing lessons. The most basic and important lesson is a singing lesson, and trainees usually take lessons from their vocal trainers one on one. And k-pop trainees practice dancing at least more than one hour every day.
K-pop trainees should take language lessons too. Korean trainees learn various foreign language including English, Chinese and Japanese, while foreign trainees learn Korean. To k-pop trainees, language lessons are as important as singing and dancing lessons because k-pop idols these days should be very active in a variety of foreign countries. That’s why they take intensive language lessons.
That’s not all. They also take personality educations and sex educations. And on the day when they don’t go to school, they do volunteer works too.
10 p.m. : Personal practice
K-pop trainees usually finish their daily lessons at 10 p.m. They can go home at that time. However, many of k-pop trainees don’t go home and stay at their practicing rooms to do personal practices. K-pop agencies do not force their trainees to do personal practices, but k-pop trainees voluntarily do personal practices because they have to survive in the fierce competition. Becoming a k-pop trainee doesn’t guarantee debut, and only a few trainees who are better than the other trainees can get an actual chance to make a debut.
12 p.m. : Go home
K-pop trainees go home late at night. When they arrive home, they write in their diaries because, as I said, k-pop trainees usually keep a diary every day to record their learning process. And after several hours of sleep, yeah, they have to follow the same daily schedule.
