1.) Yes, but they have to go through the same process as everyone else. Once they "graduate" the academy they were trained in, they still have to audition at the Weekly or Global Auditions. Being an unofficial trainee does out their foot in the door though
2.) The company decides the name.
3.) It’d just pack like you’re going away for a few months. SM gives an allowance of about $20 USD a week to their trainees so anything you forget they will have. But I wouldn’t start with just the clothes on my back. ^^
4.) In Korea? Heck yes. COEX mall has a lot of trendy (and expensive!) items. But there are cute little places to buy clothes and do shopping all around Seoul. Myeongdong, Insadong, Namdaemung, Itaewon, Dongdaemun, etc.
5.) You get Sundays off. Otherwise you have some form of practice everyday.
6.) A lot :/ If you don’t get in on scholarship to Starlight or SM Academy, it can be expensive :/
7.) BoA, The Grace, TVXQ, Zhang Liyin, f(x), Super Junior, TVXQ, Kangta, J-Min, EXO, SHINee, Girls’ Generation….
8.) None. It seriously takes a lot of work and talent to get into any of the agencies. The way it works is the less competition means the easier it is to get into a company. However, that means the company is small and thus has a lot less resources and connections. This means that you’ll have to pay more out of pocket (the bigger agencies cover pretty much everything, but the smaller agencies do not – like they might make you pay for housing, etc.) and you won’t get a lot of air time because of their lack of connections which means it will be harder to become popular. If there is a lot of competition then it is harder to get in to the company. However, that means the company is huge and has a lot of connections and resources. You’ll get pretty much a free ride through trainee time and grow in popularity faster.
9.) Small, ^ ^ If you’ve ever been in a college campus apartment, it will probably look like that. It will probably have a main room that functions as a kitchen/living room/dining room and a few smaller rooms that house 2-3 people sharing a bedroom.
10.) As many as the company requires. You’ll be trained in singing and dancing for sure and probably in a foreign language. However, if the company wants to train you in modeling or acting, you will take courses in that.
11.) Probably pretty dang early. You’ll be in school while training so probably 5 or 6, depending on how long it takes you to get ready and get to school, You’ll have school til around 3 and then train and do homework until 10-11.
12.) Allowance, food, managers, training, etc.
13.) Sunday. But if you have any serious hopes of actually debuting, you’ll take all the free time you get to practice on your own. It’s basically like studying. You have class and then time when you’re not in class, There are a few geniuses who never have to study and ace the whole class, but the rest of us must study. Practicing on your own is your studying!
(And seriously, you probably won’t have any money to shop anyways.)
14.) That its difficult. Also, they’re kinda more lax on the rules about dating and dieting since they got so much backlash over the slave contracts. They’re trying to prove they aren’t a harsh company.
15.) Korean style. So it will probably be rice mush that is like oatmeal, only with rice. Also they have kimchi and other things that we would consider lunch or supper foods for breakfast. (If you’re someone who eats leftovers for breakfast, you’ll love it!) if you aren’t ready for that, you could probably run down to McDonald’s or Dunkin’ Donut for breakfast.
