He explained, ???CT is the driving force behind the development of SM???s pop culture into global Hallyu. One of the elements of CT is our training system. Through auditions, we discover hidden talent and put them through three to seven years of music, dance, and acting training in order to create a star that???s close to perfection. It???s through this unique system that the Hallyu wave was created.???

3-7 years of training! WOW 10k hours!
