“Nightline” from ABC News featured SM Entertainment‘s training program which was aired on the October 15. ABC’s reporter Akiko Fujita visited SM Entertainment and experienced SM’s training system by taking vocal, dance and language lessons.
“But like generations of American super bands, these groups aren’t born, so much is built, starting at a kind of ‘boot camp’ run by Korea’s largest record company, S.M. Entertainment. Every week, hundreds of wanna-be stars flock to global casting calls to sing and dance for a chance at K-pop stardom. Those lucky enough to be discovered sign long-term contracts and spend years in a trainee program learning discipline, perfecting every pitch, mastering every move.”
