Every artist who dreams of becoming a K-Pop idol must train hard for an extended period of time before they can debut. This training period is highly intensive and includes detailed tutoring on several fields such as singing, dancing, rapping and so on and so forth. Fitness, dieting, grooming, everything becomes of primary importance. There are many stories of idols confessing to having a hard time during their training period, mostly because of environmental changes, financial challenges and more. In addition, the uncertainty of being able to debut is always a concern.

While some idols have spent years and years in training before they could debut, others had a comparatively shorter training period. Here are 6 idols who debuted after a very short training period.

Apink's EunJi is one of the best vocalists in the industry and her skill in dancing is just as incredible. However, she only trained for 2 months before debuting in Apink. As a matter of fact, she filled in the position of the main vocalist of the group as soon as she joined. It is obvious therefore that she was all ready to be a star from the get-go.

 

4. Girl's Day's YuRa - 1 month

Finally, the most shocking training period out of all the ones on this list has to be LOONA's Olivia Hye's. She trained for quite literally a day before she joined the group and started promotional activities. She spilled the beans on her training herself when she confessed in an interview with MBC FM4U that she trained for exactly one single day before joining LOONA. Her stage presence and skill, however, are testament to the fact that she probably didn't need more training anyway.
