Korean hip-hop label AOMG has just launched its new music survival show called Sign Here. The program aims to find new talent to sign to the AOMG label, which is run by Jay Park.
The artists are judged by a panel which includes Jay Park, producers Gray and Code Kunst, and AOMG artists Woo Won Jae and SImon Dominic. Also joining the panel are 50 hip-hop fans who help judge whether artists pass or fail the audition, and move onto the next round.
In the first episode of Sign Here, B.A.P's Jongup surprised panel and audience alike by appearing as the final contestant. Jay Park asks him if he's a B.A.P member and whether the group had disbanded, to which Jongup confirmed both points. When asked why he was applying, he said: "I have to prepare to go solo, to be honest, and I needed a new agency too".
The episode ended on this cliffhanger so guess we'll have to wait til next week to see what happens with Jongup's audition!
