Rising Legends – The Search for the Next K-Pop Sensation

Think you have what it takes to be the next K-pop sensation? Soompi is now giving fans the opportunity to get closer to their idols by becoming one themselves with Rising Legends, a worldwide audition event for international K-pop star hopefuls.

Fans can sign up and start their journey to K-pop stardom here:
Presented by Soompi and JYP Entertainment, home of legendary groups like 2PM, GOT7, Wonder Girls, Park Jin Young, and more, fans have the chance to show off their singing, rapping, and dancing skills by uploading a video of themselves performing to a cover or an original song.
As the grand prize, JYP Entertainment will offer an in person interview and audition to the finalist of each of the three categories. Soompi’s previous Ulzzang winner E.Den ended up debuting as a member of Nega Network’s LC9.
Rising Legends will be held in three rounds. As always, the winners and finalists will be determined by audience vote, as well as judges from Buzzfeed, Billboard, Fuse, The AunReview, and Soompi.
