Try out for MBC Star Audition in Los Angeles

MBC Star Audition is a reality singing-competition show, and it’s holding open auditions for its second season in Los Angeles, on Saturday, July 16, 2011. They’ll be held at the Sheraton Los Angeles Downtown Hotel (711 South Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017).

That means you’ve got two weeks to apply if you want to take your shot, which you can do:

  • If you can sing at least 1 song in Korean (no restrictions on age, gender, ethnicity);
  • are not a professional singer or have a recording contract;
  • through July 15, 2011;
  • in time for the auditions on July 16 at the above address.

Check out the links below for more info. Good luck to applicants!

For the uninitiated (e.g., me), here’s a clip from the show. (I love that the girl played a singer-songwriter-ized rendition of Seo Taiji’s pop-rap megahit “난 알아요,” even if the judges didn’t.)

When you mentioned Lies, it reminded of this clip of IU (Dream High) singing that song, along w/ Gee and Sorry Sorry - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNOoxoENsfs

Well, a song in korean? I can speak korean so it least that should be ok. The bigger problem is the singing part! It doesn't really matter which language I just suck at singing....-_-

On a side note: did anyone got to anime expo today? I saw this girl dressed up as G-dragon from his heart breaker music video and she was looked really good! I was surprised to see someone cosplay as a K-pop star.

I don't know what to do think about their form in English:

Level of Korean
(Circle one)
(한국어능력) Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Fluent

I guess after 10 weeks, I'm fluent. Yesss!

Q2. Length of Residence in UK? (체류기간)

Being resident in the UK; nope.
Oh well, I can't apply anyway.

Interesting.... On the form in Korean, you have to state your height and weight. But not on the form in English.

Someone's afraid of inches and pounds? Or someone understood that it's not what matters?

I luv the reqrmts no age limit, no ethnicity whatsoever, & I can sing a lot of Korean songs since i fell in love with Korean music, lately i've been singing along with Younha titled Broke Up Today or something like that, a beautiful song, but i guess i am camera shy & i might just have cold feet during the audition. I must say i also lately fell for IRIS ost & been singing along with Baek Ji Yeong titled Don't Forget....woah i want to audition but July 16th is fast approaching! I dunno now but i'm excited already! hehehe
