Did you know that there are idols in K-Pop who traveled from the United States to become artists?
In K-Pop there are groups made up of members of different nationalities and that is how we have a lot of variety among idols and here we have some of them who were born in the United States.
K-Pop agencies know perfectly well that there is a lot of talent even outside of Korea, which is why we can find idols from different countries in our favorite boy bands and girl groups. Many trainees leave their home countries and travel in order to become artists.
Companies like YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and even HYBE often hold auditions in countries like Japan, China, Australia, and even the United States. In reality, the country of origin does not always matter, but the talent of the future artists who are being casted in these auditions does.
So many of our favorite K-Pop groups have members with different nationalities and obviously this just goes to show that globally there is a lot of talent. Some of the kids who join the agencies from countries like Australia and the US have Korean roots so sometimes it's not that hard for them to learn the language when they get to Korea.
Here we have some K-Pop idols who were born in the United States and traveled to South Korea to become artists and shine even when they were away from home and away from their family.
