I think it is incredibly exciting that they are going to stream the audtion process live. I mean, it’s the 2nd best thing to being there. This is the closest us fans have ever gotten to the audition. Usually we have to wait to see clips, or the entire show, weeks after it happened. But seeing it while it happens, and being able to pick your favorite girl while it’s happening, is is an incredible hands on experience for the fans. It’s things like this that make me excited to be a fan.
Mnet and H!P’s joint audition premiered a few days ago. And I’m not even 100% sure what the name is. I’ve heard it called Tokyo Girls, Dream Girls, and DaeDong Kyung Youths.
But anyway, I bring you my review of the first episode. I can’t understand Korean or Japanese at all, so bear with me. XD
I knew I was going to like this audition when
The only thing I can say about this audition is, lucky Koreans who can understand this. I’m not going to do what I did last year with the Taiwan auditions. Stop watching them half way through because I can’t understand Chinese. I can’t understand Japanese either, but at least I would kinda know what they were saying and doing.
As for the girls themselves, I’m not really impressed by them. Only 2 or 3 girls can actually sing. I wouldn’t be too upset if this was like Lucky 7 all over again. But that’s highly unlikely to happen.
Tsunku, Maimi, and Saki arrived in Korea to kick off the Korean auditions. They held a press conference to officially announce the auditions. And it seems like Maimi and Saki are wearing their recent concert outfits for most of the photos.
Koreans seem to be really excited for the audition. They even welcomed their arrival at the airport.
I’m really excited to see how these auditions turn out. I’ll probably follow these a lot closer than the Taiwn auditions. Mainly because I’m more interested in Kpop than Cpop.
Anyway here’s a little pic spam of the event.
