Big Hit Entertainment, the label that houses hit South Korean boyband BTS, has launched its 2019 global auditions in eight major cities around the world. In search of the next superstar, the fifth audition will take place on Saturday at Juang Jing Vocational High School in New Taipei City’s Sindian District.

This year, Big Hit is looking for boys born in 1999 or later with talent in four categories — vocal/rap, dance, acting, and modeling. Applicants need to sign up in person at the venue between 12pm and 1:30pm on the day, and each can sign up for one category only. More information can be accessed at:

Meanwhile, BTS reached another milestone recently by becoming the first group to have three Billboard No. 1 albums within a year since the Beatles. Its latest music documentary Bring the Soul: The Movie is to hit the big screen on Aug. 7 worldwide. Presale of tickets for the film, featuring group interviews and concert performances, started in Taiwan last week.
