Model Clara revealed that she almost signed a contract with SM Entertainment!

 

She was a guest on the June 17th episode of tvN's 'Taxi' where she revealed, "When I went to school in the USA, I got cast by an SM casting director. I even met Lee Soo Man, and went up to the point just before signing the contract."


She revealed, "My mother wanted me to be an actor, and my father had too much of a hard time as part of the group Koreana. So I couldn't sign (because of my parents)."

 

Clara is now a model famous for her amazing figure - what do you think it would've been like if she was part of an SM girl group?

Although you guys say SM picks looks over talent, I think that many of the SM idols/actors are really talented. they're so well known. Girls' Generation wouldn't be so popular if they weren't talented, neither would Kangta, BoA, SJ, TVXQ, SHINee, F(x), and now EXO. Some of them are known for their voice, some for dancing. If they picked looks over talent all the time, then those groups wouldn't have succeeded very much.

Now if only more people thought like you! I always hated when people said that and every time I would look at all their accomplishments and wonder, how the hell do they not see the hard work and talent? They might be pretty good looking and whatnot, but how is it that that is all some people see?

IKR? Like they're so talented, but people only see their looks. Their talent comes first! Looks are just a bonus haha. Honestly, I think that SM saw their potential as a singer when they debuted. They didn't think 'They're going to be gorgeous when they grow up so we'll cast them.' I think that they'd say 'They have potential. We can train them hard and help develop a stronger voice.'

Not sure if its a good thing. Most of the time I see an article relating to SM it always comes with Amazing Figure/Good Looks etc. I hope I see more articles on people from SM being More Than A Pretty Face because thats what they are!!!!

I could see why they would want her 40% talent 60% looks) but can she sing or act. Plus there's the hardships and obstacles she would have maybe gone through if she signed. I think it was probably for the best that she didn't sign with them.

She's been acting in a handful of dramas, not one of the powerhouses but nonetheless one of them.

Maybe she's just going to be a model or actress. Not a singer..

Another article I read was claiming she said she could have been apart of Girl's Generation if she signed ( Like instead of Saying I could have been apart of SM as the title, it was Girls Generation), but netizens said that everyone claims that and her age would have made her the oldest? SM and other companies have alot of former trainees and would-be singers. I do want to hear her voice now though!

SM has a lot of trainees back than, and at her age I think there would've been a lot of "almost" artists.

Considering how pretty she is I am not surprised considering one of the main things SM looks for is looks.

honestly sones, i'm a sone too but clara is not trying to say she was going to debut with snsd and she's not trying to piggy back off of their fame! gawd she just says she was about to sign a contract with sm. i feel bad that she wasn't able to go through with the contract (wayyy too many sm trainees in general), but now that she's famous in what she does, i'm happy for her.

i get everyone trying to piggy back on SNSD's fame these days since they're basically the greatest girl group in music history but unless someone else in SNSD acknowledges you or you're in some of the old SM trainee videos or pics there is no almost.  almost signing a SM contract is not being almost SNSD.  thats like saying i almost became a Navy Seal when i almost joined the military.  i almost won the lottery when i almost bought a lottery ticket.  bitch pls...

SNSD is ridiculously popular but they are from the greatest girl group in music history. Heck I dont think they are even the greatest girl group in the history of kpop.
