C-Real to put their Japanese debut contract up for auction


Rookie girl group C-Real will be starting their Japanese career through a route different from their peers. Following their debut showcase, the girls will be putting their future contract up for auction, signing with the label that provides the best conditions. Unlike other groups who sign with an agency before heading over, the girls will be using the 'posting system', a method favored by professional baseball players. Their showcase will be an opportunity to meet with the Japanese labels, press, and fans, as well as experiment with whether they're suitable for the market or not. The showcase will be held in Tokyo at the end of January, and internal details are currently being hashed out. Fans will not be allowed to attend - only record label officials. Since their debut in October, the girls have been nicknamed as the 'five member IU' group, which has generated enough interest notin only Korea, but overseas as well. They have been receiving love calls from Japan, which is how they came up with their idea for debut. NAP Entertainment stated, "This method is not to raise the amount of they're worth, but to really receive an honest evaluation of their skills at their showcase. We consider it as a way to have their talents and potential recognized by their future label." Source + Photos: Donga via Naver
