YoonA, Sunye, and T.O.P offer advice to contestants for new SBS show ‘K-Pop Star’

Representing the three major agencies, Big Bang‘s T.O.P (YG Entertainment), Wonder Girls‘ Sunye (JYP Entertainment), and SNSD‘s Yoona (SM Entertainment) have volunteered to show their support for the SBS ‘Survival Audition K-POP Star‘ contestants. Viewers are already curious as to what kind of wisdom these three will share with the hopefuls. Reportedly, they showed their professionalism and sincerity by offering good pointers, and encouraging words.

Rather than informing the contestants of what to expect from judge BoA, SNSD’s Yoona drew attention for sharing her thoughts on what label mate and senior, BoA, is like behind-the-scenes. “Senior BoA has a side that’s soft and sensitive. When the SNSD girls spend time with her, she easily jokes around and makes us feel comfortable,” she said. Yoona also reminded the contestants that it is most important to be confident during any given performance.

Big Bang’s T.O.P whose face was captured in the pilot teaser stated, “Don’t try to make up extra things up as you go. CEO Yang Hyun Suk hates when you try to please someone so bad that you make others feel uncomfortable. It’s most important to show him your potential. If you do that, then you’ll have well delivered your true talent.”

J.Y. Park previously remarked that he was determined to meticulously turn each page in his book, so that he would not accidentally skip over someone, ruining their dreams forever. Sunye was deeply touched by his determination, and the singer who auditioned before J.Y. Park ten years ago offered her encouragement to the contestants with, “All of the judges including J.Y. Park are such perfectionists that they will be able to easily catch each of your talents.”

The staff members stated, “Both the staff and contestants are so glad that T.O.P, Sunye, and Yoona have decided to show their support and offer encouragement. We plan on having different artists from the three agencies to do the same. The program will now be even more exciting with the surprise addition of the stars’ remarks.”

In the past, Super Junior‘s Lee Teuk, 2PM‘s Taecyeon and 2NE1‘s Sandara Park have showed their support, and viewers are curious as to which other stars will offer their advice on ‘K-POP Star’.

Survival Audition K-POP Star airs its first episode on December 4th 6:40PM KST. The winner of the auditions will win $265,000 and a chance to release an international album.
