Running for its second season, the highly anticipated tvN K-Pop Star Hunt S2 is back! Organised by tvN, CJ Entertainment & Media (CJ E&M) and CUBE Entertainment, tvN K-pop Star Hunt S2 seeks to discover the next K-Pop superstars to showcase their talents amongst budding performers within Asia.
Following the success of the first season whose auditions took place in 2011 across Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and Philippines, it has been announced that two additional countries – Malaysia and Japan respectively – will join and compete in the auditions for the second season along with the countries mentioned above.
Similar to the first season, representatives from tvN, CJ E&M and CUBE Entertainment will be selecting the most outstanding contestants from each participating country for the preliminary auditions. Contestants who survive the first battle will be flown to Seoul for professional training with CJ E&M and CUBE Entertainment, in preparation for the final show-down in Korea. This year, the ultimate winner of tvN K-pop Star Hunt S2 will receive an intensive professional training for K-Pop Singer by CJ E&M and CUBE Entertainment, along with an album release and even a chance to make a debut stage appearance on 2013 MAMA, the leading international music awards show in Korea.
