Want to become a popstar in Korea?

Don't lie; we've all done it. From singing into our hairbrushes in the privacy of our bedrooms pretending you're singing in an arena, from singing karaoke pretending you're the next big thing, or even just singing whilst doing housework wondering when you're big break is gonna happen, we're all guilty. We've all been there.

This audition is slightly different though. Love K-Pop? Want to be a star there? Well you're on the right damn page! MBC are coming to London on the 6th of August 2011 and they want to hear from YOU!

That's right, it could be you competing with the likes of TVXQ, Big Bang, BoA, Super Junior, 2NE1 etc for the number 1 spot in the charts this time next year. But before you start getting excited, there are of course rules!

So, what are these rules? 
  • You have to sing at least one song in Korean. (Half a song should be okay, then you can also sing English songs according to the official Facebook page).
  • You cannot apply if you are already with an agency or working as a professional singer.
  • You can sing on your own OR as a group.
  • You must sing acapella or you can play an instrument whilst performing.
  • You can dance if you wish or do other performances. You must provide a CD with the track you wish to use.
  • You have to send off your application form by 3rd August 2011.
  • You DON'T have to be British! Other people from other countries are welcome to come over and try their luck, too.
So, what are the details?

The auditions are happening on the 6th of August 2011, although the venue is currently unknown. If you are lucky enough to pass the London audition, you will be invited to Korea and join other contestants for the survival stages. The winner will be rewarded with a cash prize and a recording contract opportunity in Korea. MBC will provide flights and accomodations, so it won't cost you a penny!

Okay, I understand all of the details. Where can I sign up?!

In order to sign up, you can go to their Facebook page and download the application form, then send it to

Yes, it is THAT simple! So what are you waiting for? Make your dream a reality!

Best of luck to those who enter!
