Singer-producers Park Jin Young and PSY will partner on SBS' new audition program 'LOUD' to create next-generation global boy groups.
SBS announced on November 2 that JYP Entertainment's founder Park Jin Young and P-Nation's founder PSY will work together to produce a mega-scale project called 'LOUD', which will select two new boy groups.
Unlike the existing idol audition programs, which focuses on trainees who already belong to a company, 'LOUD' is open to any teenage boy around the world who dreams of becoming a star.
SBS also explained that they want to find contestants with diverse talents, including songwriting, composing, playing musical instruments, arranging, as well as dancing and singing.
JYP, led by Park Jin Young, has produced numerous stars including 2PM, GOT7, DAY6, TWICE, Stray Kids and ITZY. Meanwhile, PSY's company also recruited renowned artists including Jessie, Hyuna, Crush, Heize and DAWN.
'LOUD' has already begun recruiting contestants from today. If selected as the final debut member of each agency through the program, the contestant will debut as a member of a next-generation global boy group in the second half of next year, with the full support of JYP and P-NATION, and work globally.
Detailed support methods and recruitment guidelines can be found on the program's official website at http://loud.sbs.co.kr.
