New k-pop “trainee” excites fans online

“Start em’ young” is what they always say.

SM Entertainment, one of South Korea’s largest entertainment companies, is currently training an 11-year-old kid to become a future k-pop star. 

The company is known to produce some of the most popular Korean stars—from Shinee, Girl’s Generation to Exo and Super Junior.

The agency’s new trainee looks a lot like his predecessors in SM Entertainment, and has since received a lot of attention from k-pop fans online. 

Other stars like SHINee’s Taemin and TWICE’s Tzuyu also started their career at a young age, and everyone will definitely watch out for this new cutie in the block.
