JYP USA Audition Tour is coming to Toronto

Do you want to be famous? Can you sing, dance, MC, act or model? What are you doing on June 18th?  Thanks to allkpop.com  for letting me know about the Toronto stop in JYP’s USA Audition Tour.  For those of you who don’t know, JYP (Jin Young Park) is one of Korea’s top producers (and a best-selling artist in his own right) and is the founder & CEO of JYP Entertainment (JYPE).  And he is coming to Toronto this month looking for talented young Canadians.  This is your chance to be discovered!

JYP has brought his 2011 JYP USA Audition Tour to the United States and Canada, with auditions already finished in Los Angeles and Vancouver and two upcoming ones scheduled for New York and Toronto.  Toronto’s auditions will happen on Saturday, June 18th at the Korean Canadian Cultural Centre (1133 Leslie Street, North York).  The qualifications are simple.  Were you born between 1983 and 2001?  Then come on out!  You don’t have to be Korean or Korean-Canadian, anyone can try out!

Live life to the fullest everyday - this is a the philosophy I try to live by and it's taken me on many adventures. I write about Korean culture from a non-Korean perspective as the editor/founder of ATK Magazine and I'm the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Toronto Korean Film Festival (TKFF). Previously, I ran a Korean-English language exchange group (in Toronto) for 3 years to stay connected to my three years living in Korea as an English teacher. I love music, film, food and sports and write about 3 of the 4.
