MBLAQ Admits 4 Out of 5 Members Got In Through Connections
Calling themselves the Parachute Group, the MBLAQ members spilled that the majority of the members became singers through connections.
On July 15, Mnet’s The Beatles Code broadcasted unaired footage from past episodes, including MBLAQs, where the members talked about how they became singers.
When MC Shindong mentioned that the MBLAQ members were ′parachutes′ – people who get into a business through connections, and MBLAQ didn’t deny it.
Cheongdung said that he got into the group because one member left MBLAQ after news of its debut already spread. Seungho, who is Rain’s hoobae from Anyang Performing Arts High School, added that he came into school ties. Lee Joon followed his friend to an audition and got scouted instead.
For Mir, his brother-in-law is the CEO of the company. He added that he once saw his brother-in-law’s computer and saw that he was on the verge of being cut from the team.
“Blood ties aren’t always a good thing,” said Mir, making everyone laugh.
Unlike his other members, G.O was the only one who went through the proper but long audition process.
“I saw on the internet that Rain was making a group called MBALQ, so I went to audition and made it.”
