Listen to Podcast:
Many people know about K-Pop idols success stories, like BTS, Blackpink, and even Aespa, who just last week made their world debut at Coachella. A lot of K-pop idols are well-known not just in Korea but all over the world as well.
But even though some stars are making a lot of money, being rich and well-known is not as common as you might think. Even though many people train for years to become K-Pop idols, not all of them get to debut, and even if they do, that doesn’t mean they will be successful in the industry.
This makes me wonder what happens to K-Pop idols who don’t get very famous. Well, it’s not surprising that they often decide to change jobs, and some of them end up far away from show business.
What is a K-Pop Idols?
A K-pop idol is a performer in the K-pop industry or Korean pop music. These artists may be part of a K-pop group or work on their own. Before they become full-fledged K-pop idols, they usually start out as trainees at Korean entertainment agencies. They go through a lot of training to improve how they sing, dance, and speak a foreign language.
How to be a K-Pop Star?
Trainees have a hard life because they live, train, and perform with other trainees when they are still very young. SOUL SPACE talked to many experts in the K-Pop idols industry, including producers, past idols, and staff members, to get ten tips on how to become K-Pop idols.
This will be the most detailed online guide to how to become a K-pop star. Remember that you need 2 out of 3 things to become K-Pop idols. Be able to sing or rap well, dance well, and look good. At least two of the three are needed.
What to Expect at K-Pop Auditions?
Before, there were the top 3, but now there are the top 4. YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, SM Entertainment, and HYBE. There will be a lot of people who want to be a trainee at these K-pop entertainment companies. Only 1-2 people out of the thousands who apply will be chosen to be trainees. The hardest company to get into is HYBE, which is mostly about boy bands. They pay a lot of attention to and promote one group in particular. Same thing with the BTS pop band.
A few days before every audition, you will need to fill out an audition application form, which is kind of like a resume. On the day of the audition, you will be in a practice room with a lot of other people. Then they will give you a list of names to let you know when you will go into another room to audition.
The actual audition is different for each company, but you’ll usually have to introduce yourself, sing or play 1-2 songs, and dance to one choreography. The judges won’t give you any feedback on this audition, but if they like you, they may call you back for a second round or tell you what you need to work on. About 15 to 20 people will be in Round 2, and each will have to sing one song inside a recording studio.
Some K-Pop idols entertainment companies prefer group auditions. This means that about 10 people walk into the audition room together, and then each person chooses whether to sing, rap, or dance. Using this information, they will call to ask for a second audition.
Roles of K-Pop Idols in a Group
Members of K-Pop idols also have certain roles that they complete in the group. Here are some of them
This member is seen as the main guide for the other band members and is usually the one who speaks for the group in interviews and public appearances. Because age and experience are so important in Korean culture, the leader is usually one of the oldest people in the group.
Then there is the main singer, who can be one or more people. In most songs, they get the most lines to sing. There are also lead and backup vocalists, like Chen from EXO.
People think that the visual is one of the most attractive people in the group of K-Pop idols. Sometimes, instead of having one visual, a band will have a “visual line,” though fans may argue about who the actual visual members are.
There is also usually a rapper in many Korean K-Pop idols. If there is more than one rapper, the terms main, lead, and sub still applies. For example, Junhyung, who used to be a member of BEAST but is now known as Highlight, was a sub.
K-Pop idols usually sing upbeat pop songs, so dancing is a big part of their shows. This means that there is usually one lead dancer who sings less than the others but is in the front and center of every performance. For example, J-Hope of BTS is the lead dancer.
The Maknae and Hyung/unnie Lines:
Maknae is the most junior member of the group, while Hyung (male) or unnie (female) is the most senior member. The group’s younger members, known as the “maknae line,” are often paired and talked about together. Their older members, known as “hyungs” or “unnies,” are referred to as their “mentors.”
