The rumors of SM Entertainment dropping out of the show turned out to be true and taking SM's judging spot will be Yoo Hee Yeol, who will replace BoA as the third judge on 'K-Pop Star 3'!

PD Park Sung Hoon announced the big change in a sudden press conference called for today. "I thought there needs to be a change as season 3 unfolded. We appointed Yoo Hee Yeol as a new judge and we think that he could discover a different kind of jewel with a different perspective. However, the concept [of the show] has not changed at all."


Yoo Hee Yeol shared, "Our agency has been a little lacking in terms of finding new talents. That is why I think 'K-Pop Star' will help. I already had a meeting with the director. To be honest, I was planning to refuse the offer but I reconsidered it after reading one phrase." That phrase turned out to be, "fair competition", and he joined the panel of judges in the hopes of upholding a fair competition to find the next superstar.


He also spoke about the differences in between major agencies like YG and JYP Entertainments, and his company Antenna Music. "Antenna Music never discusses anything when making music. You're completely free to do what you want... There's no cafeteria nor a dance practice room, and it's a small office located in a basement like place...In comparison to major companies, you can think of our company like a local bakery [rather than a big brand name bakery]... Although those who come out from this audition program will probably learn a lot when they go to either of the two big companies, if they come to our company, they'll probably be able to develop a strong will to survive."


What do you think about this change in the program?

    It's sad that there're no more girl judges though.
