With one of the largest amount of national auditions, SBS “K-Pop Star” Season 2 is off to a good start. The audition will be held on August 17-19. After seeing how quickly the winners of the show signed with agencies and the fact that “Su Pearls” is debuting soon, contestants consider “K-Pop Star” to be the best audition program so far.

There were 5 times more applicants for K-Pop Star Season 2 in comparison to the first season. 10 more audition booths had to be added because of the sheer number of applicants.

The production team that was in charge of judging the ARS (Phone) submissions stated, “We believe that there will be a lot of new contestants that were better than the ones last year. There are a lot of contestants who have a true dream of becoming a singer so it will be worth anticipating the second season.”

Besides South Korea, the “K-Pop Star” Season 2 auditions will be held in five cities: New York, LA, London, Australia, and Vancouver.
