The Story Of How ITZY Yuna Was Casted By JYP Entertainment (Feat. BTOB)
JYP Entertainment girl group ITZY member Yuna probably didn’t know that she would end up becoming an idol.
While every idol out there has his or her story of how they were casted in to an entertainment agency, Yuna’s is quite unique as it has something to do with boy group BTOB.
During a recent episode of MBC’s ‘Idol Radio’, Yuna talked about how she was scouted by a JYP Entertainment agent and ended up debuting as a member of ITZY.
She explained that her older sister was a huge fan of BTOB, resulting in her to follow her one day to ‘2015 Gayo Festival’.
And it was there where a JYP casting agent caught a glimpse of Yuna’s astounding visuals and approaching her. Afterwards, she was soon recruited as a trainee.
IlHoon responded jokingly to Yuna’s story saying:
“Liking BTOB will bring you luck. Good things will also happen if you like Idol Radio.”
The moral of the story? Try to just show up to events because you never know if a casting agent might be around looking for new talent! Of course, that is, if you’re interested in becoming a trainee.
