Its great that they allow international people but -_- even so how is it still international if its only in Seoul.

If they called it a performance arts school/academy/institute whatever, people will take if seriously. But really? A "Kpop International School'? Sounds like it's coming from an anime. I doubt a lot of people will consider that a legit school.

As long as the academics are accredited, go for it. I'm not sure about Korea, but I know in the states, as long as the school's accreditation is in good standing and it's within the time frame, they have to be accepted. And, like I said, I think this is them tweaking their training program.

It kinda makes me sad that some kids will be applying thinking they will be in class with trainees and idols. No hope. SM won't spend thousands of dollars to educate their kids in a private school when they can go to a Korean one for a fraction of the cost. The only advantage is you just might be encouraged to audition for SM.

tbh i think they might (this is a big might) choose some top students to become actual trainees. who knows?

BigBlueagain Skyepop 26 days ago

I'm thinking they're changing their trainee program out for this. Kind of like a school of the arts, magnet school, etc.

Skyepop yutoadachi 26 days ago

I agree with you on that.

That's just what I was thinking. XD I might still apply as an international student just for fun though, there's nothing to lose.

I guess you'd be no worse off then if you went backpacking for a long time.

Sounds like SME is switching things up in their trainee program. It's actually kinda smart. More along the lines of a School of the Arts like we have here. Instead of trainees having to go to school  AND then go to training, they do both. And when they graduate, they either move on to a debut, or they go to college. Also means that those who debut as teenagers don't have to worry about missing classes.

Hmmmm... Math, you're saying.. Nice. Some people don't even know the symbol of square root and that's actually embarrassing. I hope they at least teach basic math.

It's a school the only difference is that it's a Music/Composing/dancing osv. school

I don't know if I was beautiful, talented and had a little money and time I think it would be kinda fun living the life of our idols learning first hand what they go through meeting new people  who have the same interests as me like kpop....just a thought....😀😀😀😀😀
