Shooting Star and StopCyberBullying answers

-I am 16 years old korean age(originally 15)am i too old to become a trainee?
You are not too old. You’re still plenty young.

-I am not asian but people often told me i look like one,does that increase my chances?
Yes, that would probably help your chances.

-I speak Korean,kinda fluently.
What do you mean kinda? Either you speak it fluently or you don’t.

So if practise singing and dancing do you think i'd have any chances to join SM if i audition via e-mail?
You need to be talented and have the looks SM wants to get accepted. If you think you’ve got it give it a shot.


1. Is there a better chance for you to audition in Korea? Why? Because I am willing to pay and fly to Korea if thats true.
The reason the chances are higher is became SM is actually looking at you in person. At the Weekly audition or Global they video tape you and send it back to SM. Email is also similar.

2. I heard SM looks for looks ALOT. Not to be cocky but I'm pretty (alot of people say that) Slim face, monolids, high nose and small mouth. Do I have a higher chance?
Your face sounds nice… although I don’t think SM likes monolids. I believe Kyuhyun admitted he did surgery of get rid of his. Of course being pretty will give you a better chance.

3. I can sing pretty well. Hitting high notes is easy (I can sing SNSD's Kissing You very well) I never tried dancing but I'm good at acting too. Based on looks and talent, do you think I have a good chance?
You may think you sing well until a teacher actually starts teaching you. If you haven’t had any singing lessons I look into having some.

4. For global auditions (i live in Canada) how many people make it?
It’s different every time. I can’t really say.

5. I'm full chinese and know english. I don't know any korean so if I audition in Korea do I have to hire a translator or such?
I think SM will help you with a translater if you get accepted. If you just go there on your own to audition then you might need one.

6. If I audition in Korea and only staying 1-2 weeks, will they have enough time to give me the results?
It should be enough time. Just let them know you’re only there for a bit.

You look cute. J

  1. I'm 17, is it okay for me to still audition?

As long as you don’t look like your in you 80’s you’re fine. J

  1. I'm not that good in singing or dancing, pretty average I guess, but if they see potential do you think they'll still take me in and help my talents grow?

If you have the potential then you have a chance. If you know you have the potential train a little first so that the judges will see you have the skills to make it.

  1. A) I'm thinking about email audtions because I live in the Wisconsin, USA, and if I pass it and go to the 2 audition, is it with an audiance? or in a room with the judges?

No audience. Just the judges, unless you do the global audition and there will be 10 people auditing counting you.

B) Are any auditions live with an audiance?


4. I'm 5'3 and around 125 lbs, do you think it's okay? Because I was recently reading SNSD's profile and they are tall and super skinny! [insert my sad face]

Okay first off SNSD is not tall. They have a couple of taller members but they aren’t all tall. With your height you would be taller than Taeyeon, Sunny, and Hyoyeon.

  1. My vocals arent that strong...and they aren't high. My range is kind of low. I sing better with a low song, is it alright because most of the Girl SM Artists have nice high-pitched voices, which are also strong...

Another thing is most girls in SM don’t have that great high voice. They are trained well so that you can’t tell. You’ll be amazed with what training and a mic will do to your voice. If your voice is low that’s fine. Just means you’ll stand out more. J

For the weekly audition you may bring your own CD and dance routine. :-D

If you think you have the talent and skills need to make it give it a shot.

Hi Kimmy,

>>So, just in case, I don't want to say too much, but... I was in the room by myself (with the judge, obviously, hehe) for about 20 minutes. I'm not sure if that's considered a while for the weekly auditions.

That is considered a good long time. :D

>>She, the judge, had me sing two songs, had me dance a little bit, do the rhythm test, zoomed up on me... that sort of stuff. So is that a good thing? Okay, well either way, I hope you can respond to this!

I’m guessing she liked what she saw and knew SM would also so she did all that stuff with you.

>.< Oh! And I'm Korean and pale if that makes any difference :) And how long did it take you to hear back from them for the 2nd audition? Was it the day after like in the Global auditions or was it like a week later? I'm not sure if you have already answered stuff like this but... yeah. Thank you so much!

SM naturally will prefer Korean’s so that should be in your favor. It might take a couple of weeks.

Good luck you all!
