Dream Stage Korea 2013 to Kick Start in May 2012 to Launch the World’s First All-International Kpop Idol Group

Introducing Dream Stage Korea (DSK)!  The world’s first audition created to discover the world’s first all international Kpop Idol group.  DSK is created by Avance Entertainment, a Vancouver, Canada based company that produced a K-pop idol group that feature the first European ethnicity member in a group.

DSK 2013 will produce a minimum of 2 groups (1- female and 1-male group) through this project from which only one group will be chosen to debut in Korea in 2013.   

According to Mr. Suk Min Hong, president of Avance Entertainment, the ultimate goal of Avance Entertainment through the DSK project is to re-export the international Kpop idol groups to their respective home markets after their successful debut and development in Korea, in order to foster a proliferation of Kpop as a legitimate mainstream musical genre worldwide.

DSK will tour around 10 cities worldwide in May – June 2012 for live auditions to select the candidates that will advance to the final competition in Vancouver in August 2012.  One of the most exciting parts of this audition is that the touring cities will be selected by the Kpop fans themselves through series of voting and offline and online participations such as flash-mobs, Facebook and Youtube. 

Once the final selections are made at the Vancouver finals, the training will be provided by the presenting partner, PDI-EPAA, the first Kpop-specialized training academy outside Korea.  There is no limit to ethnicity and nationality to participate.
