Announcing Los Angeles Casting for MBC Star Audition Season 3

Hi Soompiers! We are excited to announce the third season of MBC Star Audition, and we hope YOU can be a part of it! MBC will pick contestants from all over the world to compete for a cash prize and a chance to debut as a pop singer in Korea.

In particular, the Los Angeles auditions will be held on Sunday, August 12, 2012. The time and location will be released soon. Contestants who pass the initial audition phase will be flown to Korea in September to compete against other finalists for the grand prize, and an opportunity to become an international singing sensation! Finalists who travel to Korea will receive mentoring from talented celebrities – last season, singers such as Lena Park, Sun-Hee Lee, and K-Pop composer Yoon Il Sang (one of Korea’s most famed producers) participated in the mentoring process. The mentorship program will allow finalists to receive one-on-one training with industry professionals to further improve their knowledge and skills as they reach for stardom.

The auditions are open to anyone, with no age, gender, or ethnicity requirements – the only prerequisite is that contestants should be able to sing at least one song in Korean. Fluency in Korean is not necessary, however.

Online applications are available at the official MBC Star Audition website.

The application deadline is Saturday, August 11, 2012. However, walk-in applicants on the day of auditions are welcome as well.
