SM Entertainment Auditions?
Hi! I just wanted to ask some questions about the SM Entertainment auditions. I am 16 years old, female, and I am Asian but I am not Korean. However, I do know basic korean and I'm still learning. I can sing very well and hit the high notes easily, but I know that I still need long hours of vigorous practice. I am not good at dancing but that's what the training is for right ^_^ I guess I am pretty, or so I've heard. I live in the U.S. but not close to the cities SM come for auditions. I was thinking about mail auditions, because I did some research and apparently SM gets hundreds of emails daily and my email audition might not even get looked at... 1)When would be a good time to send my mail audition? Could it be any day of the year or a specific date? Or maybe any specific time of year when people don't really send in as many online/mail auditions? 2) I am 5'2" right now, but I have been growing taller ever since the beginning of 2012, when I was around 5'1/2".Would my height be a big issue for them? I know some SM girls that are not tall but they do have the looks and talent: SNSD Taeyeon, Hyoyeon and Sunny; f(x) Luna. 3) How should my mail packaging look? Simple big yellow envelope or something fancy? Should I send them a CD or put the audition tape in a USB flashdrive? 4) What else should I send them along with my video? Could you please tell me what information I have to include on there (name, age, etc.)? 5) I am aware through brief research that if you pass the first round, they ask you to come to Korea for the second round. Some people say that SM pays for your flight and stay for the second round, while others say that the auditionee would have to deal with all the expenses. So which one is correct? Would they help me out if they really like me? 6) Is it possible that if you are extremely good, and they see you as more than just a potential candidate, they will call you or mail/email you to come to Korea for a personal audition rather than just a regular audition thats held in Korea? 7) I know that for the audtion video my makeup should be really soft and subtle. How should I dress/hair? What should/shouldn't be in the background? Or should I stand infront of a blank white wall since it is thought out to be more professional? 8) I know how to introduce myself well in Korean, so in my video should I introduce myself in Korean and English or just English? Sorry for the long questions, but thank you so much to all the answerers! If there's anything else that you would like to add on here, feel free to type away!! ^o^ *Note: I have a legitimate passion of making it to the Korean music industry, not because of K-Pop idols, but because of my own personal dream since I was 12 years old. Thank you for respecting that (:

1.) I suggest sending it at a time when you know they will receive it during a weekday. Weekends are usually the most busy for businesses. Honestly, avoid the summer and fall, spring, and winter breaks. That's when everyone says "I'm bored...let's audition... More

1) They'd prefer it if you went to an audition (Weekly, global, youth star, etc...) but if you have no way there then you could do that. You can send it in anytime you want, but you should label it... More
