A survival audition program such as Mnet's 'Produce 101' could be a great way to start one's music career and get their name out there as an artist even if they fail to make it to the final round.
Another amazing thing about joining an audition show is that one can discover the side of them which they did not even know existed and can grow in so many aspects in the process of competing with numerous contestants who each have different strengths.
Most of them usually focus on pursuing their music career, but there are some artists who constantly seek different means to channel their energy and talents into something else other than singing and dancing.
These six celebrities not only succeeded in making their debut with the help of a survival audition program, but also managed to write the next chapter of their lives by getting a part in various acting projects.
