Actress/Model Clara Almost Signed with SM Entertainment

Actress/Model Clara Almost Signed with SM Entertainment

Actress/model Clara, who has been gathering a lot of attention lately because of her “glamorous” body, was a guest on tvN’s talkshow “Taxi” for the June 17 episode.

During the show,  Clara disclosed, “When I was going to school in the U.S., I was picked up by SM’s casting director. I even met teacher Lee Soo Man and almost signed a contract.”

Unfortunately in the end, Clara didn’t sign with the agency. She explained that her parents opposed it, saying, “My mom wanted me to become an actress and my father (Lee Seung Kyu), who was part of Koreana found his life as a singer difficult. Because he found it hard, he didn’t want to suggest being a singer to me so I couldn’t sign the contract.”

Koreana, the group that Clara’s father was a member of, officially debuted in 1962 and between 1977 and 1980, the group performed as “Arirang Singers.” Koreana is most famous for singing the 1988 Seoul Olympics theme song, “Hand in Hand.”

No big loss there.  SM will make you famous for sure.  But the way they split up that pie is questionable.

She seriously has Jay Park's music video to thank for this sudden interest and rise to the media in Korea. Lols...or maybe I just never knew about her before his music video. 

But I agree from the comments on NB, so many can say they were lined up but it's the only current 9 that  made it. Also she's like 31/32...it would've been odd for her to be placed in the group.
