Trainees are like unprocessed stones. HYBE T&D is also a place where these rough stones are sorted, polished, and transformed into jewel-like artists. We run a variety of programs to help you discover your hidden talents and help them reach their full potential. My life as a trainee begins with listening to a variety of music and expressing my feelings. In the educational program “Show Down,” students gain stage experience through songwriting and dance battles, and also learn about melody line and beat structure, as well as lectures on music genres such as rock, hip-hop, and R&B, and opportunities to meet producers. Students will go through the process of increasing their understanding of music through conversations and other activities. TAEHYUN, a member of TOMORROW “They’ve done a lot for me,” he says of the positive changes.
It is also worth noting that we create and manage a custom-made curriculum for each trainee. We carefully analyze the trainees’ level and tendencies, and based on this, we further develop their individual strengths in areas such as vocals, dance, and songwriting/composition, while also working to compensate for their weaknesses.
A representative from T&D said, “Since BTS’s Jimin studied dance, he had developed the habit of dancing in a supple manner, but in order to correct this, he was given a mission to give power to dance, and in the next month’s evaluation, “ENHYPEN’s SUNGHOON was also a figure skater and had a body suitable for sports, but (with the same mission) he has created a body suitable for dancing.” SOOBIN of TOMORROW
