Over the past few decades, SM Entertainment gave birth to some great K-pop groups such as TVXQ!, Girls' Generation, SHINee, f(x), EXO, Red Velvet, and NCT.
Their fans and the viewers love when the artists from SM Entertainment make appearance at talk shows and variety shows since when they do, sometimes they share an interesting story behind their debut or their trainee days.
However, what always garners the most attention is the story of how they got to join their current management agency.
Some say that they became a trainee through an open casting call, and others say that they were street cast on their way home or some place else.
But the thing about street casting is that it has a bit of a stigma.
Many assume that those who were street cast would be less talented at singing and dancing since their appearance was practically the main reason that got them there.
These celebrities not only broke those stereotypes, but also proved that sometimes they can actually have it all.
Let's take a look at these four K-pop group members who won the hearts of the public with their looks and more importantly, their talents!
1. JAEHYUN of NCT
2. Krystal of f(x)
3. Seohyun of Girls' Generation
