On average, K-Pop idols train for about 2 to 3 years and in some cases, they could also train up to as much as 10 years before they get the chance to debut.

Recently on online community, one netizen had talked about 5 female K-Pop idols who had at least spent 8 years of their lives as trainees. Find out who they are!
