J.Y. Park frustrated over Yang Hyun Suk's qualification of 'French Amber'?
On December 18th, the third episode of SBS 'K-POP Star' aired and viewers were able to watch French contestant, Julie Chabrol perform "Forget You" by Cee Lo Green. After finishing her live performance, the three judges of the show gave varying opinions from praises to disapproval. For those who have seen the previous episodes, you should have noticed the striking difference between J. Y. Park and Yang Hyun Suk's criteria for qualifying contestants. This episode was another example of that dissimilarity between the two producers. First, judge BoA commented, "You have f(x) Amber's vibe. You seem like a tomboy. You have a good voice as a foreigner, but skill wise..I don't know. I'll be honest, you would be good as a visual. I want to see you sing in Korean in the next round and I'll make a final decision then. So for now, I'll pass you to the next round." However, producer J.Y. Park disqualified the foreign contestant revealing, "I like it when an artist is comfortable on stage, but I don't like it when they are comfortable without any skills. You have the attitude of a star, but don't have the skills like one. That is very frustrating to me." Regarding this statement, the contestant showed her determination as she stated, "I want to go further in the contest. I haven't shown my fullest potential yet." Interestingly enough, the audience was shocked to hear Yang Hyun Suk's evaluation as it was completely different from the other judges. He said, "This is interesting. My thoughts are completely different than Park Jin Young's. I really like you, Julie Chabrol. I think you have a million dollar voice. I'm going to pass you." After hearing Yang Hyun Suk's statement, J.Y. Park looked surprised and frustrated at the same time, intensifying the mood of the set. Check out the audition yourselves and tell us whether you agree with the judges or not! Tip: Jack Tee
