The global audition show will feature 30 Korean and Chinese trainees who might or might not officially debut. These types of shows are always stressful for competitors, and miss A"s Jia and Fei visited them to give them support!
The two girls visited the trainees" dorms, donned on aprons and prepared a delicious Chinese meal for them! What lucky trainees, because Fei is known to be quite the chef! The two miss A members also gave their advice to the trainees.
GOT7"s Jackson also stopped by to visit the trainees. Although in the still cuts, it looks like he"s scolding the trainees, he was actually having a serious discussion with them. He also took pictures with them and gave them presents.
The three were the perfect idols to give advice and encouragement to the trainees, as all three are from China or Hong Kong and have experience the rigorous idol training system in Korea.
But K-pop idols aren"t the only ones who will be making an appearance on "Super Idol"!
The judges of the show have been revealed to be Coco Lee and David Tao. Heo Ji Ae, Zhang Liang and Li Shang will also appear in the show.

G-Dragon has been reportedly voted to be the most Stylish Idol in the current Korean entertainment industry
-- Last week, we asked you which idol′s style you′ve been eyeing lately and the results are in!
The race to the top was incredibly close with EXO′s Chan Yeol and Big Bang′s G-Dragon neck and neck, but it was G-Dragon who ultimately clinched the win with 49.4 percent of votes, just barely beating Chan Yeol, who finished with 49.1 percent of votes.
The other nominees didn′t stand a chance, as 2PM′s Jun.K, BTS′ Rap Monster and SHINee′s Key scraped by with 1 percent, 0.3 percent and 0.2 percent of votes, respectively.
Looks like G-Dragon can hold onto the title of idol style icon, but he better watch out because someone′s giving him a run for his money!
The joint Korean-Chinese show that we"ve been hearing about since some time ago shared some still cuts recently with the announcement that Girl"s Day"s Yura is serving as the MC!
The audition program "Super Idol" is a joint project between Korea"s "MBC MUSIC" and China"s "TV ZONE". The show will feature idol trainees who will focus on promoting in China once they debut.

A representative from "Super Idol" said, "Yura is adding to the abundant fun of "Super Idol" as an MC with her smooth hosting and upbeat charms. You"ll be able to see a new side of Yura, not as the idol Yura, but as the host Yura, and see the Korean and Chinese youth working towards their dreams. We ask for a lot of anticipation for the first episode of the joint Korean-Chinese global audition program "Super Idol"."

2PM"s Chansung has become the latest k-celeb to sign on for a Chinese production. He will appear in the musical film titled "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." It is a title inspired a Beatles song.
This coming of age film is actually a collaborative effort between Korea"s JYP Entertainment and the Chinese entertainment company East Entertainment Group.
According to a JYP representative, Hwang Chansung will appear as G.O., the youngest member of Stars, a once popular idol group.
That"s fitting because in real life, Chansung, 24, is also the youngest member of the band 2PM. Except that in real life, 2PM is still popular.
The JYP representative said that the singer and actor plays a supporting role to fellow JYPE actor Wei Da Xun, who has been cast as the film"s lead.
Chansung"s character in the film "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" is named D.O. He is described as a quirky spontaneous genius composer. D.O. is so spontaneous that his impulsive actions often land him in trouble. And if he is in trouble, the rest of the group also has a problem.
Chansung is currently shooting his first film "Red Carpet." The romantic comedy tells the story of a romance between a porn director and a former child actress. In that film Chansung plays Dae Yun, a member of the director"s filming crew. Hwang Chansung also has drama acting experience, having appeared in the Korean dramas "Unstoppable High Kick," "Level 7 Civil Servant" and the Japanese drama "Kaito Royale."
More JYP idols may also appear in the film, as the musical will feature singing and dancing.
So, it"s fitting that the director has music video credentials. Hwang Soo, who created music videos for Infinite"s "Chaser," IU"s "Good Day" and Ga In"s "Bloom" will direct the film.
Korean actors and idols have become increasingly popular in China. And there is a greater demand for them to appear in Chinese films and dramas. Song Seung Hoon, Song Hye Kyo, Kim Tae Hee, Kim Bum, miss A"s Gia and Kwon Sang Woo are all either considering roles or have recently taken roles in a Chinese film or drama.
In 2013 a Beijing newspaper Cheonbao said that Korean actors had taken as many as 10 leading roles since 2011, while they only filled 20 roles in the previous decade.
"I Wanna Hold Your Hand" is expected to premiere in 2015.

K-Pop Crossover: 2NE1 English Fansite Now Hiring Blackjacks, And The Best English Fansites Of Korean Idol Groups!
(Photo : Twitter)As the K-pop phenomenon grows across the globe, English fansites have become an invaluable part of the online community for Korean idol groups.
A good example of this is K-pop sensation 2NE1 and the English fansite YGLadies. With over 42,000 members from around the world, this fansite is a place all Blackjacks can call home.
And as K-pop expands, so too does the fansites for leading idol groups like 2NE1.
YGLadies, for example, is currently hiring for several positions to maintain and develop the website. Of course, being a loyal Blackjack and a fan of 2NE1 is a prerequisite!
To check out the hiring positions, click here.
In addition to having active YouTube channels, K-pop idols rely on English fansites to reach international fans around the world.
To check out just how many fansites there are for individual K-pop groups, click here. This directory shows the dedicated fan groups of K-pop groups like Girls' Generation, Crayon Pop, and MBLAQ.
Soshified, for example, is a community website dedicated to Girls' Generation, and it houses over 200,000 members and 176 staff members!
When K-pop fans join a fanclub, they can participate in community events and get the latest scoop on their favorite Korean group. Often times, the K-pop group will have direct contact with the community to stay connected to their fans.
An example of this is the recent story of Dara and Blackjack fan Loreign, who recently passed away from a terminal illness.
A letter spread around the Internet addressed to Dara of 2NE1 about a Blackjack named Loreign. In the letter written by a member of the Blackjack community, we learned that Loreign has been battling cancer.
"It may not be much, but we were hoping perhaps a mention from you would give her the boost she needs to pull through this critical stage and live out the rest of her days with one more happy memory," said the letter.
Thanks to the letter being posted on forums like YGLadies and Twitter, Dara saw the request and wrote a personal note to Loreign and encouraged her to fight hard and stay positive.
After Loreign's passing, Blackjacks mourned the loss through places like YGLadies, YouTube, and Twitter, showing the support K-pop fans have for one another.
