Seventeen-year-old Kriesha Tiu is making waves on South Korean television after she impressed the judges not only for dance moves and singing talent, but also for her good command of the Korean language.
Tiu, also known as Chrisha Choo, is a trainee for Urban Works ENT, a Korean agency. Originally from Cebu, the young Filipino talent was scouted by the company while she was in San Francisco, California.
She then flew to Korea with her mother and younger brother. Choo said she went to a Korean institute to study the language, while honing her skills with the company.
During her audition for K-Pop Star 6, Choo performed “I Don’t Love You” by Urban Zakapa. She also danced to Justin Bieber’s ''Boyfriend.''
The judges, YG Entertainment’s Yang Hyun-suk, JYP Entertainment’s Park Jin-young, and Antenna Music’s You Hee-yeol, were impressed with Choo’s performance, with Yang saying he wants to bring her into his company right away.
