On the 9th episode of SBS's "Survival Audition: K-POP STAR Season Two", after enduring the controversial SM-YG-JYP casting battle, the talented contestants entered into the next stage of the competition.
For the midway evaluation, Boa called the SM contestants to a pension and began a special type of training. SHINee's Onew and Minho came to the pension as special trainers, surprising the contestants with their sudden appearance. The contestants were delighted to see two true K-pop stars before their eyes.
After watching a girl group perform a dance number and Girls' Generation's "The Boys", Onew said he immediately thought that they were good. However, he noticed that the girls showed their all during their own parts, but were less sharp and polished when dancing in the back.
Next up was Andrew Choi, a composer and producer who works under SM Entertainment. Minho shared that he had met Andrew before because he did the vocal guide and produced a song for SHINee that has yet to be released. Minho said that even at that time, he was shocked to hear Andrew's singing ability, and he was even more shocked to see him on "K-POP STAR". Andrew sang an acoustic rendition of BoA's "Only One" and received a round of applause from SHINee and other judges.
