X marks a new spot in K-pop star Amber Liu’s career
X marks a new spot in K-pop star Amber Liu’s career

Hanging out in Los Angeles’s Koreatown one summer day in 2008, Amber Liu felt a tap on her shoulder. When she turned around, a scout from SM Entertainment, one of South Korea’s largest entertainment companies, handed her the details for their global auditions. Known for launching many K-pop stars such as BoA, Girls’ Generation and Shinee, the entertainment giant was hunting new talent. Her unusual look – petite, athletic and tomboyish – had caught the scout’s eye.

 
The next day, she was at the audition. “I sang My Heart Will Go On. When they asked me to dance, I just did some two-step,” says Liu, 27, laughing at the memory of trying to hit Celine Dion’s power chords. “I did a few more rounds [of auditions], and next thing, I was in Korea.”
