: Hold onto your seats because we have our one and only Dami here in the studio with us. Hi Dami!

[Reporter : ] : Hi 건영 and Hi Sean!

: So what sort of news do you have for us today

[Reporter : ] : Well, let me start off with a pop quiz! What do Jo Kwon of 2AM, Huh Gak, Seung Ri of BigBang and Suzy of Miss A, have in common:

[Reporter : ] : The answer is they all kicked off their careers by appearing on audition programs!
So for our first story today, we heard that Yang Hyun-suk from YG Entertainment and Park Jin-young from JYP entertainment have become judges on the newest audition program that seeks to discover the next big K-pop stars!
Let's go ahead and check it out!

In recent months, the Korean TV industry has been taken over by a variety of audition programs.

Many of the big-name stars we see today actually got their start on these kinds of audition programs.

The boom has led Yang Hyun-suk and Park Jin-young, CEOs of two of Korea's biggest labels, to collaborate on a show of their own.

The two CEOs have become judges who will work side by side to discover the next global K-pop star, but they each had their own set of judging criteria.

[Interview : PD] "What are your judging criteria

[Interview : Park Jin-young, Music producer] "I like really nice singers, maybe people who are a little shy. I like people who have a clear and true character to offer, and who can show that character off in a natural way".

On the other hand, Yang Hyun-suk prefers people who are not nice at all.

[Interview : PD] "What are your judging criteria

[Interview : Yang Hyun-suk, Music producer] "When I judge auditions, I pick people who don't look nice. Of course it's important for singers to be people of good character, but I think that there's a special kind of charisma that comes from performers who seem strong and a little mean onstage".

Yang Hyun-suk and Park Jin-young are two of Korea's most famous star producers! Everyone's excited to see who they will pick as their next star.

This year, actors Seo Yeong-hee [서영희] and Choi Daniel were chosen to promote the 48th Daejong [대종] Film Festival.

[Member of SHINee] "I wanted to tell more people about us".

Then we also have Mr. Kim Jung-min and Miss Kim Jeong-min-I, who share the same name but are of different genders. Add to that Baek Ji-young [백지영] and Kim Ji-young [김지영], Eugene (Yoo Jin) and Kim Yoo-jin-I, Minho and Lee Min-ho looks like stars have a penchant for pretty names!
