Sorry for taking so long to reply, but I had to wait for those people I asked to get back to me lol.
I asked around the admins for Jaehyung/5Live’s Chinese fanbases and all of them were really shocked/surprised by the question so I can’t give you a definite answer.
Admin highly doubt so though, but who knows what goes on in JYP.
Yes but you can’t forget this~

I’m not an expert in this so the things I say may not be right, please keep that in mind ^^
I guess if you’re going to sing, find a song that shows off your vocals in the very beginning, or you can begin recording near the climax of the song? Basically online auditions differ from actual auditions at the training center because you don’t get a chance to convince the judges if your beginning wasn’t good, so it’s really possible that they’ll skip over your audition tape if the first few (like, 10) seconds didn’t “wow” them. (For actual auditions on alternate weekends at the training center, you get at least 30 - 45 seconds before they stop you if you’re not good enough lol. If they don’t stop you then you get up to almost 2 minutes)
I can’t advise you on specific song choices, but in face-to-face auditions they usually ask you to sing a song without background music and a mic, so I guess ballad songs will be the best, but if you’re partial to other genres then go ahead. There’s no limit to your selection :) The language of the song doesn’t matter ^^
Remember to introduce yourself before you sing! Say something that will set yourself apart but not in a bad way? (I’m pretty sure JYP looks out for personality too heh)
Hello~ this question has been sort of answered here before, but in addition to that, we (used to) run on 78% luck as well. Also if I have any ridiculously persisting questions, I will send a message to the admin of Terry He’s global fanclub and she asks Terry for me lol.
I believe that online auditions can be from any country! From the wise words of ex JYP trainee(s), if you want to catch their attention, you have to do something amazing in the first few seconds of the video, as the judges may not have time to watch the whole video due to the large amount of audition videos they have to go through.
Keep in mind that as of the beginning of 2014, only 2 of the 20 to 30+ trainees in JYP got in through online audition (I think Brian was one of them ^^)
All the best!!!
