Not all K-pop singers decided that they wanted to become one since young, and they did not picture themselves to become a singer in their lifetime.
These five K-pop singers are the living proof; they were scouted by management agencies to make their debut after accompanying their friends or family members to an audition.
1. V of BTS
At the time, the casting manager of Big Hit Entertainment suggested V to go for an audition.
V called his father to ask for permission, and he was the only one who had passed the Daegu audition.
She also participated in the program, and a casting manager of JYP Entertainment approached Suzy when she was on her way to restroom.
3. XIUMIN of EXO
XIUMIN shared that he was very thankful to his friend, as he would not have been where he is right now if not because of the friend.
4. Son Naeun of Apink
She followed her cousin's audition and ended up auditioning too.
5. Bae Jin Young of CIX and Wanna One
But the friend did not have any passion for debuting as an actor or singer, so he suggested Bae Jin Young to audition instead.
