As SM Trainees to Become Like SNSD and Super Junior, What's Most Difficult?

What is most difficult of being a trainee of SM Entertainment, known as one of the top K-Pop management agency?

Rookie group EXO-K shared in an interview with Sports Chosun, “It was whenever we heard people say, ‘Are they SM trainees? So when are they debuting? It was very painful.”

SM Entertainment is one of the top management companies in K-pop as one of the most sought after agencies that star wannabes wish to enter. It’s an honor just too even pass the audition as they will join the likes of popular stars such as BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior and Girls’ Generation.

However SM trainees share that true hardship starts right after passing the audition. It’s because it begins a fierce competition among the trainees who have excellent talents to run towards their debut. The trainee periods before the debut vary from different people. Such as the leader of EXO-K went through trainee for 6 years while Baekhyun was trained for just one year.

It’s most difficult for trainees to see their fellow trainee-mate or junior to have their debut before themselves. In fact, the instance of SHINee’s debut was such case for EXO-K’s Suho.

However for trainees their biggest dream is their debut. Suho said, “I would like to encourage the trainees to challenge themselves. The ones who are supposed to make it will do so,” with a smile.
