Yeri recently spoke about what she did to prepare for her audition with SM Entertainment, and how it all worked out.
“When I was in 5th Grade, I searched online what I should do when auditioning for SM Entertainment. I read that you had to wear a headband, so I permed my hair and wore a purple or white headband and went [to the audition].”
“I read that you shouldn’t sing SM songs, so I avoided all SM songs and prepared only JYP songs. In the end, they only asked me to sing SM songs.”
She also revealed that everyone at her audition sang SM songs, and she was the only one to pick a JYP song.
It all worked out in the end, as she can sing all the SM songs she wants now.
