As reported previously that an Alpha audition will be held and organized in Singapore during December this year, it has been further confirmed with more details.
Last year, the Korean star search held by JYP-Alpha had driven more than 3,500 and 2,800 participants in Singapore and Hong Kong respectively. The audition in Singapore itself had successfully signed 11 of them to train under Alpha Entertainment. Of which, 3 girls have been selected and sent to Korea for intensive trainings, getting ready to debut in March next year with 3 other Korean girls.
With such overwhelming responses and the rising popularity of Hallyu Wave across Asia, it is expected that the upcoming audition in Singapore this year will draw a large number of participants who want to give a shot at stardom as well.
