The submission for Soompi and JYP Entertainment’s joint venture Rising Legends closed on August 28 and as to prove how fleet they are, in getting you the latest scoop in K-world and providing you with the results of the preliminary, Soompi revealed the list of participants who moved forward to the first round of audience voting on September 2.
And let me just make this one thing clear, it was not at all an easy decision. There were 5000 entries within 10 days (seriously??) and from over 122 countries across the globe. Must have been a tough choice!!
Now we vote 🙂 As this is a fan-led talent search, the decision of who will be going for the next round lies in your hands. The diligent staff of Soompi worked hard to bring the list down to 50 Participants per category (Dance, Music, Rap) for you to choose from. Now all you have to do is pick a category, work your way around the entries while voting for your favourites. Make sure you vote in all the three categories. The top 25 from each category will classify for the next round.
What happens after that??
That’s the most common question that will come to your mind. We have an answer to that too. After the three voting rounds are finished and the finalists from each category have been selected, these finalists will get the chance to have a one-to-one interview with JYP’s talent scout. And as Soompi states it- “Vote, you might be voting for the next K-pop star!”. You can vote for multiple contestants, once per hour.
So, what are you waiting for?? Go and vote. Voting for Round one closes on September 7, 7 p.m. PDT.
