CJ ENM and HYBE on the hunt for new girl group members
CJ ENM and entertainment agency HYBE have joined hands once again to recruit future girl group members from Monday. The two previously formed boy band Enhypen, which debuted in November.
Like how they put together a survival audition program titled “I-Land” on Mnet and tvN to select members of Enhypen, the two will hold “I-Land 2” to select members of a new girl group to debut after the program is done. The new girl group will be managed by agency Belift Lab, which is also home to Enhypen.
For this audition, any female from any country born after Jan. 1 in 2000 and before Dec. 31 in 2009 can apply until midnight of Oct. 10 through Belift Lab’s website, www.beliftlab.com.
Those interested need to file an application online and also submit a photo of themselves, as well as videos introducing themselves and showing off their talents. Applicants can choose among three categories: vocal, dance and rap.
The application is available in four different languages which are Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese. Those who were chosen in the first round will be contacted individually and will be asked to do a video audition between Oct. 24 and Nov. 21. The video auditions will be available in seven different regions; Korea, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, the United States and Australia. Those who pass will move on to the third round for more in-depth auditions.
