Getting on Star King
First off, it's late...so I'm already a little grumpy.
But I am so tired of people asking me how to get on Star King. I didn't mind responding personally to the first handful of inquiries on the topic, but the sheer number of letters I've gotten about it recently is ridiculous. So I must clarify once and for all:
I HAVE NO CLUE HOW TO GET ON STAR KING.
Sorry. As I said before, I started making those videos for fun...usually when I had writer's block or had a song stuck in my head. I had no kpop career intentions when I started posting. I did it because I had (have) a sincere love for the kpop-culture and wanted to connect with others sharing my interest. I honestly didn't think anyone would look at my page besides my mom...who can barely start a PC solitaire game on her own. SO basically, I thought it would go unnoticed. Now imagine my surprise (or skepticism, rather) when a producer from the show contacted me via YouTube mail. After exchanging a few emails (until I was sure it was legit), we chatted on the phone and they were basically like "We buy ticket. You come now!"
And literally, within a couple of days, I was on a plane to Seoul. My head was reeling, everything happened so fast.
My point is, I couldn't tell you how to find Star King. They find your ass. Secret Society, Mafia style...trash bag over the head, chloroform in your nose, and BOOM! - you're doin' a soft shoe on stage the next night...probably with Boom. (hehe, see what I did there?)
So relax, do what you do...do it well (i think it helps to be an oddball), and perhaps the Star King clan will catch your scent and emerge from the shadows...
Best of Luck!
