■Auditions and conditions of trainee training
All the students attending ACOPIA School are trained from a company called Acopia Entertainment. If you are interested in auditioning, practicing and debuting in the entertainment industry, please let ACOPIA know. ACOPIA will support you in advance preparation, procedures, negotiations and scheduling of the audition during your stay in Korea. We will show you where and when the audition will be held, and the ACOPIA staff will accompany you as much as possible.
As for trainee's contracts, at the beginning of the period, they often proceed without a contract with an entertainment company. If you need to make a trainee contract, ACOPIA will contact the trainee's parents about it, obtain a decision and permission from them, and then make a contract with the Korean entertainment company as a guarantor. When signing a contract, parents must come to Korea to attend to the meeting and sign the contract.
The K-POP entertainment world is often a harsh world. If trainees are judged to be unable to fulfill the entertainment company's expectations they can break the trainee contract. In that case we will consult trainees and their parents if the trainee would like to audition for another company.
If you want to work for the entertainment company after becoming a trainee, you will have to go to the immigration office with ACOPIA and get the permission to do so. Also, if any income is generated from the practice activities, the responsibility changes from ACOPIA to the entertainment company which will help you to get an "entertainment business visa".
ACOPIA School believes in you so please be proud to become an ACOPIA School student!
