BigHit’s Global Auditions and HYBE LABELS JAPAN’s New Debut Program


BigHit Music – the same company who gave us BTS and TXT – is going global for its new boy group.

On June 6th, BigHit released a video game-inspired trailer for the 2022 Global Auditions. The auditions will take place in seven cities:

  • Los Angeles, United States on June 25th.
  • Toronto, Canada on July 2nd.
  • Sydney, Australia on July 16th.
  • Bangkok, Thailand on July 30th.
  • Taipei, Taiwan on August 13th.
  • Tokyo, Japan on September 3rd; and
  • Seoul, South Korea on September 18th.

There will also be online auditions for people unable to attend in person. Registration is from June 6th to September 18th. (There is no advance registration required for the in-person auditions.) 

You can get Korea's best snacks and goodies without an audition here: Seoulbox

Applicants must be born in or after 2002, with an interest in producing, dancing, singing, and/or rapping. More information is available on BigHit’s website.
