Dark Side of Asian Auditions

(Left) Contract (right) Young female Trainee

When it comes to audition it’s always wise to know some industry tip.Regardless if your ambitious to become a model,dancer,producer,idol etc.. in a recent AKP article KBS VJ Special Forces expose the dark underbelly of K-pop. A young women walk into an agency to auditions. She pass the audition with flying colors. Then the agent informs her she has to pay  2,700 USD fee. She was also asked to call the director of the agency without any recording device. When the young female trainee ask about contract agreement. The agent informs her that no other agency will financial support her 100%. Their agency will support her 100% as long she does sexual favors without objecting and never to leave the company.

When reporters went back to question the agencies have no problems giving out other celebrities info under their firm. On top of that when reporters review the trainees contract agreement if required her to pay 4,000 USD. Revealing a clear cause that prohibited the young female trainee to request a refund.

Another young female trainee wanted to be an actress remissness of her recent audition experience.

The agency said they were looking for a small role and wanted to meet me in person. They instead dragged me to their home and force fed me various drinks, claiming that they needed to check my limit. After a while, they taped my mouth shut so that I couldn’t scream, and further claimed that in order to become a celebrity, I needed to have sex with him.”

She is only in her 3rd year of high school, making her very much underage.

In all truths when comes to audition usually an agency doesn’t request a fee. Nor do they allow you to sign a contract on the spot. If its for a small cameo role or as an extra usually get paid on the spot. Just because these auditions take place in Asia doesn’t mean  business is conducted any different. Be wise when going to an audition and ask the right question. If an agent claims you must pay a fee ask for what. If an agent wants to sign a contract request for a lawyer (your lawyer) review it before signing. If an agent is in disagreement, stumbles to answer  or informs you there is no “refund” then its a scam. Don’t think because an agency is legit doesn’t prey on the less inform.Especially if they require sexual favors that is not accepted nor necessary .

These agencies prey on the naive nature and instant gratification of youth. An agent is manipulating you if he/she say “no agency will support you 100% but we will if……” The request are something of prostitution don’t do it. Be business savvy once you start contract negotiations with entertainment firms. Listen to what an agent is requesting and requiring specific of you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you feel uncomfortable. If it doesn’t seem right or you sense it’s a scam then back away. Don’t allow you desperation to get the best of you.

Beware of Frauds

I posted some time back about Eden Entertainment to have audition proven to be a fraud created by the company.I just receive the info because my internet connection is screw up at the moment.

The following has not been change or altar in anyway.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (March 22, 2010)

On March 13 & 14, 2010, Atlanta-based entertainment company Eden Entertainment held an “open audition” in Duluth, which was revealed by Tiger JK of Drunken Tiger to be a fraud.  This “audition,” sponsored by Korea Times and MBC of Atlanta, was advertised to be an audition for SM Entertainment, YG Family, and Jungle Entertainment.  Normally, major Korean entertainment companies do not hold auditions jointly with other companies, given that the point of holding auditions is not to share but to hoard talent.  In addition, major Korean music labels never charge money to those auditioning.

On March 16, Tiger JK of Drunken Tiger, the CEO of Jungle Entertainment, sent out this message on Twitter: “JUNGLE ENT DID NOT SEND PEOPS OUT IN ATL, TO AUDITON NOBODY!!!! “BE AWARE OF THEM FAKE A&R AND TALENT SCOUTERS.”  Because of this message, which was reposted and spread like fire through the Internet, many in the Atlanta Korean community were made aware that the Eden “audition” was a fraud.

The Eden Entertainment “audition” charged $10 per participant, making as much as $20,000 for Eden president Thomas Lee, who claimed on Twitter that 2000 people auditioned.  Neither SM, YG, nor Jungle Entertainment gave Eden permission to hold auditions on their behalf, nor was permission given to Eden to use the corporate logos of SM, YG, and Jungle on Eden’s advertisements for the “audition.”  The record labels only authorized Eden to submit videos of Atlanta talent, which any person (not just Thomas Lee of Eden) has the right to do with any record label anywhere.  But Eden’s fraudulent use of the company logos created the false impression that the auditions were officially sanctioned by SM, YG, and Jungle, allowing Eden to attract a large number of paying auditioners who thought they were auditioning for a major Korean record label.

The fraud continues in that finalists for the Eden “audition” are now meeting at MBC in Atlanta on a regular basis with Eden representatives, and these auditioners have not yet been informed that the auditions were exposed by Jungle Entertainment as a scam.  Furthermore, neither Korea Times nor MBC, who sponsored the “audition,” have yet to make a larger announcement to the Atlanta Korean community that Eden should return the $10 audition fee to all auditioners.  In this sense, Korea Times and MBC continue to be active participants in the fraud.

This audition was tied with Altalnta’ss Korean Times and Allkpop.com

Note:You should NEVER pay any cash to any type of audition whether its for modeling,music, or anything else.When an agency requires a fee this is a  sign its a scam.No entertainment or scouting agencies require fees or contract agreements in order to participate.
