Kangta, who will be serving as a panel judge on Mnet‘s ’Voice Korea‘, has admitted that there are a few contestants who he’d like to take back with him to SM Entertainment.
‘Voice Korea’ held a press conference in Seoul on February 7th, during which the singer was asked, “Were there any contestants who possessed as much potential as BoA that you’d like to train under SM Entertainment?”
“There were a lot,” Kanta admitted. “There were a lot of contestants whose styles were so different from the label I’m under. There are a few who I would like to work with SM in the future, and I will keep an eye on them as the show progresses.”
Singer Shin Seung Hoon, who was also present at the press conference, remarked, “Kangta is actually a director at SM Entertainment. We refer to him as ‘Director Ahn’, and I think there will be a lot of talented young people who will debut under SM Entertainment thanks to Kangta, who is currently walking the path of a producer.”
‘Voice Korea’ is the Korean version of popular American music survival program, ‘The Voice‘. Shin Seung Hoon, Baek Ji Young, Kangta, and Leessang‘s Gil will be serving as the program’s vocal coaches.
In this program, the judges will have to select contestants based on their vocal talent alone, without seeing their appearance or knowing their background information.
The first episode airs on February 10th.
