Kangta (Previously from the original idol group H.O.T) stated that he would like to train singers within SM that have unique colors. On February 7, he appeared at a press conference for M.net’s “The Voice of Korea.”
Kangta stated, “I want to train juniors that will have unique colors not found within SM Entertainment. A lot of people look at SM juniors and say ‘That person is SM,’ or ‘That person is not SM.’ I want to make a new color that never existed in SM Entertainment before.”
He continued, “I want to hear that Kangta is a different producer. I don’t know when that will happen but I would like people to think that when Kangta is part of a project, something is different.”
Kangta will be one of the coaches on “The Voice of Korea” alongside Shin Seung Hoon, Baek Ji Young, and Leessang’s Gil. This survival program only focuses on the vocals of the contestants. They even have blind auditions.
“The Voice of Korea” is the officially licensed Korean version of music survival program “The Voice.” “The Voice” is originally from Holland and aired as “The Voice of Holland” on September 17, 2010. Mnet’s “The Voice of Korea” will air its pilot episode on on February 10 at 11PM KST.
