She said at age 16, she was “very awkward and lost” when doing her audition.

Her dad noticed her love for music and didn’t want her to have any regrets in the future if she didn’t pursue it. Thanks to her dad, she decided to audition.

She assumed she wasn’t going to make it but decided to do her best, anyway.

She also shared an exclusive clip of herself performing “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz while playing the guitar.

She viewed the audition as a precious experience, but she never thought she would eventually pass and enter the company.

I did my thing and I was like, ‘I’m just going to try to enjoy it since I’m probably not going to get in and I’m just going to try to remember this moment and get some good memories out of it.’

— Rosé

When she got the call that she made it, she was completely in shock!

Thanks to her dad, Rosé is now able to live her dreams as an idol!
