It all started with the Wondergirls and their catchy Nobody No Nobody but you *clap clap* which took K-pop to the global market and made JYP Entertainment one of the Top 3 Entertainment Agencies of South Korea. After the popularity of the YG auditions in London last year, JYP has also decided to hold auditions in London to look for some UK talent to join the JYPE trainee camp.
JYP Entertainment one of the most popular Korean entertainment companies that houses current popular artists such as Wonder Girls, 2PM, 2AM, miss A and more as well as artists, actors, actresses is to hold 2013 JYP UK Audition at June 8th, with cooperation of the K-POP Cover Dance Team.
