She didn’t make it into the final 10 contestants on KPOP STAR 6, but this 11-year-old girl impressed Yang Hyun Suk so much that he just signed her to his agency.
YG Entertainment has released a statement confirming that they have signed 11-year-old Han Byul to an exclusive contract. Han Byul is half Swedish, half Korean, and also one of the youngest contestants to appear on K-Pop Star 6: The Last Chance.
“We recently signed a contract with Han Byul who appeared on K-Pop Star 6. She is the first person we’ve signed from the show. Since she is still very young, she will come to the company 3 or 4 times a week to receive training.”

Han Byul made it to the top 18 on K-Pop Star 6: The Last Chance but unfortunately failed to reach the top 10. Even though she failed to reach the top 10, she still wowed the judges with her performances, including Meghan Trainor‘s hit song “All About That Bass”
