The Royal Family of K-Pop, SM Entertainment ♪ Let me be your ruler / You can call me Queen B ♪

SM Entertainment is by far the largest and most powerful of the agencies in South Korea, if not Asia when it comes to Korean music. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get through their trainee system, but if you can make it through, success is almost for certain. If you’ve decided that the trainee system is the way you want to get into K-Pop, then make sure you try out for the SM auditions.

Global Auditions

Global auditions take place at least once a year. The company pack up and tour their recruitment team and go to cities where they normally aren’t located. The 2014 locations are currently as follows:

April 24th: Vancouver

April 27th: Toronto

April 29th: New York

May 4th: Los Angeles

(Indonesia, China, Japan and Thailand were visited earlier in the year)

Of course, this is not truly a “global” audition, however we don’t know if there are any plans in the future for SM to visit Europe or Australia. To keep an eye on all future global audition dates, you can check their Facebook page.

To audition for these date specific locations, you need to register on the SMTown website at least 24 hours before the audition date on the SMTown website. You can apply through the website, through the Everysing App, or by email. Check the website for more information. You will only get confirmation that your audition is happening if they email you the location and time of your audition.

How do I prepare for a SMTown Audition?

First and foremost, there is the all important question of “Who are these companies looking for?” While it would be nice to think that everyone has a fair chance in these auditions, it goes without saying that if you are not of Asian descent, the odds are not in your favour. To sing Korean in Korea, the general public will want someone who at least looks like they’re from the area. Not to say you shouldn’t try, but do know that the Korean market is not really open to many other ethnicities, so that will be huge on SM’s minds.

That being said, Japan and China are huge markets for SMTown, and they happily sell to those markets (Super Junior-M, Exo-M, etc etc) so if you have ties to those cultures, it will be an advantage.

There are six different categories that SMTown are auditioning for: singers, dancers, actors, comedians, models, and writers. If you want to apply for any of these positons, you will need to prepare the following:

Singer Singing without MR & microphone (both cover and original songs are permitted)
Dancer Freestyle dancing
Film Actor, TV Actor Impromptu action, memorized monologue to be prepared by applicant
Comedian MC/ VJ Any kind of comedy routine, miming act for mimes prepared by applicant
Model (Fashion, CF) Free Posing
Songwriter / Lyricist Demo CD or Written music score to be prepared by the applicant

 

Of course, you should make sure you double check all your information with the SMTown website before sending in anything, as auditions can change without notice. Information on the site can be found in Korean, Japanese, English and Chinese.

If any of you have auditioned with SMTown before, let us know what the experience was like! If you’re going to audition soon, good luck! We wish you all the best!

  1. I would like to have a one try. I don’t believe in myself.. Sing without mic, I think I can do that but how can I sent the video? I haven’t any account expect that.

    • Hi everyone am dalel am 13 years old am from algeria . I just can’t belive in myself i know that this comment can’t do anything to me i send many comment but there is nothing but i keep send and send because i know that am great singer and i want to be kpop singer . When you love somthing you do anything to find it . And i love korea and kpop and SM .am crying now because i know that this a dream can’t come truth . And am muslim i really konw that sm don’t like muslim and they gona say you are diffrent i know everything i just want to say please please helpe me . i don’t have money to go to korea :'( :'( :'(
      PLEASE PLEASE
      From dalel
      Love you all

      • Don’t worry too much, I want to try too and I’m from Nigeria. Even if your from another ethnicity and religion it won’t hurt to try. You have to have faith in yourself. As long as your a good singer and know a good amountof Korean then you have a 50% chance of making it. Just think positively about thing and this might just work out. Look at Michelle lee. She doesn’t look like a native Korean and she still made it as an idol. Think positively.

        • Don’t worry! This all might seem racist, but I’m sure sm would like some real talented ones. They only do this to make k pop seem more k pop and k pop is a type of Asian music… So I’d probably find a way to make the talent seem presentable and go for it

      • hhhhh we are the same sister but nothing is impossible..we just have to try hard..by the way i am a song writer

    • If you don’t believe in yourself then no one will my dear. You really have to believe in yourself and fight low self-esteem if you really have it then, go for what you want.

  2. i wish to try. but m from india and people see indians as dark people. but there r true mongoloids or pure asian faces in its northeastern parts. m from those race. before trying out m fed up with the thought that people see me among the darks since i belong to india.hope people r fully aware of it in future

    • It’s a really unfortunate thing, but at the same time, it’s something that happens in many countries. There are very few musical artists in North America who get constant air time who aren’t either black or white. Other cultures are starting to make an impact, but it’s slow happening. The same in Korea. The country is 98% Korean and then of that other 2%, many of those foreign cultures are other Asians. It will take a while for them to open up to others on their stage, but it is happening slowly.

      Personally, I’m of the opinion that if you love a style of music, like k-pop, but know you couldn’t do it as a profession in Korea… Why not adapt the style to your own country? There are SO many people on this planet, if you just do your thing, and you cater to the people in your own area and bring them something they might not get normally, you can begin to change music yourself. And who knows, if k-pop is your goal, and you start doing K-Pop in India, you could start getting agencies to pay attention and they might begin to bring concerts and notice everyone. 🙂

    • Well, you’ll need to first register on the SMTown website. They have the site in English, so you can follow their instructions there. Then, follow their instructions on how to audition during their monthly auditions or mail in your audition.

    • Unfortunately, we’re not a music agency, so you’ll need to interview and audition with the companies. This is just a guide for those who want to attend the auditions.

  3. I want to become a kpop someday. I can sing&dance. Ilove to compose english song, and can act. Im a muse since elementary and now im highschool student. Im goodlooking. I wish that you are visit in Philippines.

  4. im a filipino,14 yrs, old. i dont have enough money so i decided to do the email auditions. speaking of it, my friends said that im really good at rapping and dancing (and i cant believe it) but i have a little talent when it comes to singing. so for my audition, can i just do the rap (yoon mirae’s black happiness, 2nd verse) and dance in an english song? im not that pretty but not that ugly, and im just doing the email auditions, do you think i can pass?

    • Honestly, I can’t make that call. I think if you did it with confidence, you have as good a chance as any. I’ve heard that there are people from all over Asia in the training program in SM, so I think you could have a chance. But I don’t know what they look for, personally.

  5. I would love to be a singer and I dont think I will do good with a mic and I live in minnestoa so yea I wish that smtown will come to minnestoa. And by the way um am hmong so yea I wish that I will be able to become a k-pop star even though I dont think that is going to happen but I am going to beliven in my dream.

  6. I live in New Zealand, but I’m originally from the Philippines with Chinese blood as well. I’m currently 15 right now and I would like to audition but I’m worried about the process of having a private audition seeing as I’m halfway across the world and my family is no shape to suddenly fly me to Korea, and if I do get in, where would I stay and how would I be able to live there without no family help? People say I look Chinese but I’m afraid because there aren’t that many idols are don’t look Korean…

    • I would say it’s the same as a really good job. If you’re good enough that they actually want to sign you, they would offer to get you to Korea. There are those idols that have gone to Korea first and then auditioned in Korea, but the dawn of international auditions have made it so they would probably be more willing to bring someone over if they felt it was worth it. As for being able to live there without help, that is part of the reason the dorm system exists: so people coming in, even from outside the city of Seoul, can stay close and train.

      However, really, you’re counting chickens before they hatch. The first thing you would need to do it audition, and hear back from them. If/when you hear back from that, the rest would find a way of making itself happen if it’s meant to be.

      • Would they not accept dance covers? Does it have to be freestyle and can we sing in any language and submit more than one song?

  7. hi my name is Clarence Marcos.i had a question,can a filipino audition in sm entertament because im a filipino and maybe if there was a opportunity i want to be a member of sm entertament family 🙂

    • Yes, they can audition. It’s going to be up to SM to decide after that. I know that there are trainees from all over Asia at the moment, so there are lots of opportunities, so long as you have exactly what they’re looking for.

  8. annyeong hesayo I’m 13 year old,i want a mail audition because i cant go to korea for audition my ambition is to be a kpopstar it’s not for it’s for my family and i want to help children that have no food to eat and not a complete family I’m thankful because god gave me in a perfect family but when i go out side i see many children, everywhere i want to incarage them to help their live but they don’t listen to me so i decide to audition in smtown many people now me who I’m, i hope you read this rote.

  9. HYE pLEAS heLp me i live in the meddle east and i was born in 1999 i have no chance to go for korea as soon so i decided to do an emaile audition but i dont really now ho to it please help me and thanks before 🙂

  10. well i live in Ethiopia and i am confident about my singing i am thirteen and i do look a bit Asian no actually a lot and i would love to be a trainee. i have always wanted to be a singer since i was 8 but what i am worried about is what to sing i can speak Korean and fluent English. what song should i choose??

  11. I’m extremely passionate about K-pop and I would love to audition however I’m not asian at all! I love to sing and dance and all but I live in Australia, is there really no chance for me to be a kpop idol?

    • At what age is the requirements in auditioning
      …..can i still audition till 2017 and
      because i want to finish my studies and i want also to study how to speak in Korean..
      can you accept me i can sing and dance….

  12. Hi, I want to know that does SM entertainment still have their USA monthly audition in 2015? If yes, do you know is that still the same every third week is Saturday? I have been check their website, but didn’t update the date after 2014. Aren’t they not going to held the USA audition this year because of global audition?

    • Our understand has been that the monthly auditions have happened at that time in LA for quite a while. You could always confirm at their email address, but since the global audition is not going to the US, I’m assuming it’s because they already do US auditions.

      • hi i want to audition
        in dancing is it okay to copy the dance steps of the groups like snds or red velvet?
        and how can i audition online

      • Hi, thanks for your reply! I’ve emailed them by the email address provided from the am official website. But still no reply till now. Should I ask some more detail? Or it need to write in specific format? So they still have their monthly audition based on your acknowledgement right?

        • Hi Dear,
          I want to know how did you attached your audition video?
          Because when I sent email, I was unable to attach my video file (becos of Large File Size), after adding 2photos, 2audios. And then, I just entered my videos’ Youtube link in it.
          How was your video size?
          Did you include just dance or some talks?
          Please share your exps with us!
          Thanks.

  13.

  14. Hello,

    I’m turkish and i’m 15 years old. I can sing and I think i’m pretty enough but there is a problem : im brunette. My friends say that i’m a little slant-eyed but not that much. I’m just scared to apply because of my appearance. What should I do ? I know I can do anything to become a singer but this problem is not about how much can i struggle…

  15. Im a 15 year old indian with some looks of korean girl (since i am a buddhist from ladakh region).Being good at acting i really want 2 give a try in korea though what matters me the most is the korean accent even though i take few korean lessons online.im really trying hard to get into k pop.

  16. Thanks for the information. It’s helpful.
    So if i join the mail audition, i just have to send the needed file with my video and those kinda stuff to their email, isn’t it?
    So do you know how they contact us when we were chosen?
    Anyway, thanks again!

    • Yeah, you just follow the instructions for what to send in the mail section, and they’ll contact you if you’re selected. I’m not sure how they contact you, but make sure they have all your contact info.

  17. Do they accept Filipina/ Filipinos there? Some says, No. I really need to know the answer, Because Im planning to audition next year.

  18. Hi, so glad you are able to answer us.
    I am from Myanmar n now Only ChinaII (as Home Page shows) left for 2015. I can’t afford for cost to go China n don’t know Mandarin that much (can speak a bit). I worried for that. Also one thing I am now over 21yrs old. I wondered if will they accept even I got qualified. I have confident on both singing n dancing. Various concerns make me worried .. I’m really worried if I get cut after I went China. My parents will ….. me!! Help me some advice before I made decision..

    • I am thinking to apply it with email. But shall I choose nomal email audition or Global? What ‘s the differences. Oh, I left smth, I have kinda baby-face and short-height. Would u check my appearence at my website..? I will b saving money to go China ^^ Thanks

      • Hi, I am going to apply to SM via email audition. (Not for Global nor Weekly) *bcos I saw on their website Individual Apply are allowed. ^_^
        I guess it’s better to send it in weekdays, right? rather than weekends. I have recorded for audio n dance clip. *my area is singing. There is one problem, when I change original mp4 video into wmv, my mouth n voice is not match. A little faster voice comes before mouth move. How to do? & before I make it, I want to know if u have any suggestion or advice.
        Oh & thanks for your blog. It was amazing!

        • I think sending it in on a Monday or Tuesday would work best. Not sure about how SM work, but then they have 5 business days to look it over before it gets lost in backlog over the weekend. As for the video, I unfortunately don’t know what the problem would be. WMV is a terrible file format, so I can’t imagine why they would choose that option. :/
          Thanks for reading! Good luck!

          • Hi, again!
            So I might have to wait ’till next week.
            I was thinking about it and one thing comes again! Photo! Is it okay if I take photo by my own, without going to Photo Studio. If my photo resolution/quality is not bad.

            • I don’t want to say yes or no, BUT, do remember… You have one shot. If you can choose between doing something the best you can and doing it any other way, you definitely should do it the very best you can.

  19. hi im 13 y/o,and i feel like signing up for SM audition next year(missed it for dis yeear)lets say i take singing cat.,and passed the audition,and happens we need to go to korea if passed.What will happen to our education then?Do we not need to study?im only concerned on that.Other then that,it would be my voice.im learning korean for the sake of this so thx if u replied to this!
    ありがとう!

    • They do have a school program, from my understanding, but priority is put on performance and languages. If you’re wanting a full education, the path of an idol might not fit with that. However, like I’ve said to many, all you can do is try, and if it comes to that stage, that’s when you should make the decision.

  20. i want to be a kpop but im a pilipino there is no available auditons in phillipines like du / there so many talented people in the phillipines and they didnt just give a little attention to it?

  21. Hi my name is dalel am 13 years old and my height is 169 and my weight is 47 i want to audition in SM me and my sister i really have a good voice. But the problem is that am from algeria and i can’t go to korea because i don’t have money .and am scared that SM don’t like algerian but i look like korean
    So can you please help me i want to know how to audition and how can i send video
    Please help me

  22. I’m 16, Brazilian, and auditioning. Does anyone know what happens after you send in the email audition?

    • Hi, I also sent email to SM too. If smth happens, could u pls reply thos cmt? ^_^ For me, I immediately got email from postmater@smtown.com with wonderful contents (I discourage use of their email). I have no idea what it is mean. I have never sent email to them before. Now Im feeling awkward that I might not able to audition again.

  23. Hi, this is Este again, I sent email for audition. But as soon as I sent, there was an email back to my inbox: from postmaster@smtown.com. I am so surprised n shocked bcos that mail content contain my email discourages use of …(their mail address)… and it shows “Failed”. I have never sent a mail to SM before. I have no idea why I’m having it. Coud u suggest something? I think now it’s been a month I sent mail which has no reply for confirmation of audition success! So if I am not selected, I wonder can I able to send another email for audition again. (Like .. whether they blocked my mail address).

    • Usually, a postmaster email reply means that the inbox is full. Or that the email address no longer exists. I’m going to go with it being full. The comments usually tell you what the error was, if it was full or doesn’t work any more.

        Dear Rebecca,
        The above message is the contents of the email. So can I able to send with my email address again to them?, cos it seems like they didn’t get my email audition, right? I am just worried whether they blocked my email address. Could u please suggest when should I send my audition files again? I know this month, July ~ August would be their busy days because live auditions is now holding at China, isn’t it?

        P.S, when I sent my first email audition, I gave them my Youtube video link – instead attaching it in email, because of file size (I uploaded it on Youtube). Do you think it is okay?
        With Best Regards,
        Nai

        • Well, as it says right there, the inbox is full. They didn’t get your email. You’ll need to try again another time. I don’t know when would be best to send it. Perhaps later in the week, like a Thursday or so. That way, they might have cleaned up their inbox by then.

          • Nothing to update on… lol. i sent in my email with my pictures and mp3 attached and nothings happened since then. i’ll keep waiting and update again when something actually happens

          • Hi Rebecca, it’s me again.
            Well, I just want to tell to you because no one else to discuss about it. As the previous msg, postmaster’s mails return as soon as I sent my email to them (just a seconds later). <- So I do believe that their mailbox is full & can't accept ours.
            But yesterday at 1:00 PM, I sent audition mail again but no reply for postmaster so I thought they would received it as it was sent.
            But then when 10:10 PM, I got the same email from postmaster like previous emails – but why it takes so long to reply?
            If it is really full – shouldn't it reply as soon as I sent (like it happened before)
            I am so stressful why it is happening!!?

            & also
            If there is someone who can contact SM, pls tell them about things like this and to fix it, please T__T.

            Thanks,

I have a great singing voice… and i don’t want to make it go waste….and iam not at all interested in Bollywood genre of music ( that India makes )

  39. A motivating discussion is definitely worth
    comment. I do believe that you ought to publish more on this
    subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but typically
    people do not talk about such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!

  51. NOTES: THE RHYTHM TEST WAS TAKEN OUT ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO AND IT IS ACTUALLY OPTIONAL

    WHAT, WHEN, WHERE?

    • S.M. auditions are basically auditioning for a certain type of category. These categories are dancing, singing, acting, and modeling. YOU MAY ONLY AUDITION FOR ONE! But if you are singing, but you want to also dance, then they let you sing, then freestyle.

    • The S.M. auditions are on each third Saturday of a month. It is from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

    • The auditions are at 4322 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 300 Los Angeles, CA 90010

    WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

    So basically, I went to the building early (12:30 PM). TRUST ME! It is not worth going early, if you want to be at least kind of early.. then go at 1:30. When I went to the building, there weren’t any auditioners until 1:45.

    They opened the doors at like 1:50 and we obviously went inside the room/office. Right in front of you would be a lady who sits behind the counter. On the counter, there will be multiple audition forms that you would have to fill out. The forms asked for basic information (Name, Age, School, Grade, Job, Weight, Height, and Ethnicity) ALSO, there is a question on the form that asks for what you will be auditioning for.

    After there are at least 5 forms filled out, the lady will pick out the people and lead them to a dance practice room. Inside the dance practice room, there was a glass table on the left, with a camera stand on it. On the right, there was a whole wall dedicated to their past or now K-POP groups.

    Then, she explains what is expected and what we should do. She said that we should keep our hair out of our face and that it should not be blocking the number tag.

    She then gave us our number tags and we had to stand behind these sticky notes on the ground, by the wall dedicated to the KPOP groups.

    SO WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE AUDITION?

    We all were in a horizontal line. The person on the very right would introduce themselves, then audition. Then, it continues with the same pattern. At the end, the lady asks if any of us wants to do the rhythm test. THE RHYTHM TEST IS OPTIONAL. Also, when people introduced themselves, they had to look directly at the camera. Singers and modelers had to look at the camera at all times. Dancers and actors didn’t have to look at the camera excluding when they introduce themselves.

    WHAT WAS THE INTRODUCTION SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE?

    1. Name

    2. Number Tag

    3. Age

    4. School

    5. Grade

    6. Job?

    WHEN WILL I GET MY RESULTS?

    The lady will send the audition pieces to S.M. after the month has ended, Then, you will get your results in 2 months from when you had auditioned.

  52. Can someone give me a tip about auditioning online to SM ent.? Will they still accept me if I’m half chinese half filipina?

  53. Can I audition???even if I am Filipino because I’m 14 and I know how to speak Korean fluent and English and I know how to sing, rap and dance. 감 사 합 니 다

    I TRY TO AUDITION

    LOVE YOU ALL …WINK
