YouTuber MANGOO recently took to her YouTube channel to do a Q&A session for her followers. Here she revealed some exciting stories about her casting offer experiences.
MANGOO, also known as Lee Min Young, answered some burning questions for her followers as a special treat for hitting 100,000 subscribers on her channel. It was here that the beauty YouTuber revealed her story behind her casting offers. When asked, “have you ever been given a casting offer”, Lee Min Young replied that she had.
I have. You guys know that these days they do casting offers through Instagram, right? It’s actually happened to me a few times.
She continued on with her story by sharing that the school she attended, Hanlim Arts High School was famous for receiving scouting offers. The YouTuber shared that it wasn’t because she was special, but because the school she attended was known for these types of opportunities.
Casting offer messages get sent to the students of Hanlim Arts High School very frequently. I didn’t receive these offers because I was special. It’s just very common for students of Hamlim Arts High School to receive these offers from companies.
It was after this story that a viewer asked her if she had been contacted by one of the “Big 3” K-Pop agencies: SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and YG Entertainment.
I’ve been asked if I have ever received an offer from one of the big 3 companies.
Lee Min Young shyly revealed that she has!
I have, I have received an offer.
Don’t worry folks because the YouTuber didn’t end the story there. She continues on by sharing how she responded to the offer.
This is how I responded to the offer. At the time, I was solely focused on my ballet. I had no desires or thoughts to go into the entertainment industry.
Lee Min Young continues her story by telling her viewers how she responded to the big 3 label’s DM.
I messaged them, ‘the only thing I can do is ballet and I am tone deaf…’
She also told the label representative that she didn’t think she’d have much to bring to the table.
I don’t think I’ll be of any help to your company…
In the end, the label representative gave up on her!
After my response, the label representative gave up on me.
