JYP Entertainment is holding their first round of Chinese auditions for 2014, and Mark and Jackson have been featured in a video to give K-Pop trainee hopefuls all the information on how to apply.
Known as one of the more diverse K-Pop groups, GOT7‘s Mark and Jackson, who are both fluent in Mandarin, have made an announcement video for all of the people who aspire to become K-Pop idols from China.
Both members of the rookie group speak Mandarin, as Mark is a Taiwanese-American while Jackson is a Hong Kong native. In addition, both Mark and Jackson are prime examples of success stories from JYP Entertainment’s overseas auditions, as Mark was scouted in the States while Jackson auditioned in China.
The auditions will be held on November 23rd in Beijing at the Chinese Cultural Center, November 29-30th in Shenzhen at the Korean International School, and lastly on December 6-7th in Shanghai at the Korean Culture Center and Museum.
Jackson eagerly informs viewers that applications can be found on “China’s biggest Music website, YinYueTai” at http://feature.yinyuetai.com/jyp. He further states “Don’t wait any longer! Apply now and make your dreams a reality. GOT7 supports you! JYP supports you!” while Mark gives an encouraging “FIGHTING!”
