The judges of SBS′ new survival audition show Kpop Star (aired December 4), highly praised 15-year-old contestant, Park Jung Eun.
Prior to her audition, Park showed her confidence by saying, “I’m confident in all styles of dance.” She later proved her words were true, and stunned the judges Yang Hyun Suk, Park Jin Young, and BoA.
Yang Hyun Suk, who discovered 2NE1’s Minzy, spoke highly of Park. Yang added “It′ll be fun to see a dance battle between you and Minzy.”
Park also complimented the contestant by stating, “Regardless of your age, you′re the best. You might be the best in Korea, and have a potential in the States as well.” He continued, “But I’m pretty sure you will be eliminated in the middle of the competition. This is my tip for you. I think it’ll be good for you to perform a rap that you yourself wrote.” SM’s Boa also commented favorably on her talent, “It’s surprising for a girl to exhibit that much power.”
Kpop Star is a new audition program that brought together Korea’s big three entertainment firmsSM, YG, and JYPto find the next global K-pop star. The winner of the show will be awarded with 300 million won and a chance to release an international album.
