SBS‘s ‘K-Pop Star‘ aired its fifth live broadcast on April 1st, which consisted of performances by the Top 6. Last week, the Top 6 were evenly divided and cast to one of the top three agencies (YG, SM, and JYP) to receive training from well-known producers. Unfortunately, the contestant to be eliminated this week was the guitarist who visited from America, Park Jae Hyung.
Park Jae Hyung was praised by J.Y. Park for his performance last week and has once again put up another impressive performance of Frankie Valli‘s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You“. Viewers were impressed by his spectacular stage performance, yet Park Jae Hyung was unable to impress the three judges as they stated that his tone was “unstable”.
When faced with an elimination, Park Jae Hyung commented, “Through this competition, I was able to realize how great it is to be able to do the things you want in life. I would like to sincerely thank all of my fans, parents, and the judges.”
Meanwhile, the Top 5 finalists were once again cast by the judges to be trained under the top three agencies. JYP selected Lee Ha Yi and Lee Michelle, YG again selected Lee Seung Hoon and Park Ji Min, and SM cast Baek Ah Yeon.
In addition to this week’s live broadcast, YG Entertainment‘s very own producer and 1TYM leader, Teddy Park, made a brief television appearance. Upon his arrival, fans were ecstatic to see him make a television appearance again after such a long time.
The reason for Teddy’s sudden appearance on the audition program was because he had trained contestants Lee Seung Hoon and Park Ji Min over the past week. Whether it was because of Teddy’s coaching or not, the two received the highest scores on the April 1st broadcast of ‘K-Pop Star’, to many viewer’s surprise.
At the end of Park Ji Min’s performance of The Jackson 5‘s “I’ll Be There“, Yang Hyun Suk commented, “Teddy is the type of person that becomes ‘rough’ when recording. It even took 2NE1 six hours to record, but it only took Park Ji Min two or three times to get it correct.”
