SEOUL -- BTS agency's record label Source Music will hold auditions to form a sister band of the label's multinational girl group, Le Sserafim. Regardless of nationality, females born after 2007 can apply for the audition, which seeks talented members in vocals, rap, dance, and other areas.
The "2024 Source Music Audition" will take place in six cities in South Korea next month, starting in Seoul on March 2. The other five cities include the southern port city of Busan and the southern resort island of Jeju. "This audition is designed to select members of a new girl group," Source Music's spokesperson Kim Tae-hyun told Aju Korea Daily.
The entertainment group will offer an opportunity for final candidates to sign a trainee contract. This is Source Music's first offline audition in about four years and five months, since its joint audition with Hybe in 2019. In July 2019, Hybe acquired Source Music to strengthen its multi-label structure and join the ranks of South Korea's major entertainment groups.
Le Sserafim, which debuted in May 2022, consists of two South Koreans, two Japanese, and one American. Its debut song "Fearless" entered the Billboard chart eight days after its release. As of February 6, the dance song's music video surpassed 178 million views on YouTube. Le Sserafim has also collaborated with Moroccan-born artist ABIR for "Sour Grapes," a song in its debut album, to expand its overseas fanbase.
