UK female vocal talent wanted

Hurrah! At last, when someone asks for a native English speaker, they want a native British English speaker. Nay more. Inclusive attitudes to non-standard accents has not spread to this particular project, so intellectual-sounding Edinburgh accents, or salt-of-the-earth West Country accents are not wanted. I’ve checked with the advertiser, and what they want is good old BBC English, the Queen’s English, RP, call it what you will. Sounds like a good deal for any English lass who happens to be in Seoul with a few hours to spare every day over the next month, but obviously you will want to check for yourselves.

microphoneThis is a recording studio company called Adsound (www.adsound.com) located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul.

  1. Have they considered visa issues? Most British women in Seoul are on teaching or spouse visas (or are tourists) and it is illegal for them to do paid work in this way. I’ve run into this problem myself, when a company in Seoul auditioned me for a TV show, only to pull out at the last minute.
