FNC will also hold a series of in-person auditions in the United States, starting next month. The next audition, titled “2022 FNC Pick Up Stage: USA Tour,” will take place sixteen times in six cities.

It will begin in Seattle on April 18-19 and continue in San Francisco on April 20-21, Los Angeles from April 22-24, and New Jersey and New York from April 28-May 1. Anyone born between 2003 and 2010 can apply for the audition, regardless of gender.

Applicants should submit their applications on-site during designated regional audit days. Recruitment areas are divided into singing, rapping, dancing, acting, acting, performing musical instruments, and modeling. Candidates can apply through two methods: auditions at regional academy tours in six cities and public auditions in Los Angeles, New Jersey and New York.

Final recruits will be selected through each stage of Regional Auditions, Executive Auditions, and Final Auditions. They will earn the opportunity to sign an intern contract and receive systematic management and professional training from the entertainment company.

The auditions are part of the K-pop powerhouse’s “FNC Pick Up Stage” project aimed at launching next-generation artists. More detailed information about the auditions can be found on the company’s website and its social media, the agency said.
