NCT‘s Mark is trying out for a spot on the upcoming entertainment music program “High School Rapper.”

The program, designed to put together high school students of each province for a nationwide talent competition, is selecting the Seoul representative Monday.

Tryouts for Busan and South Gyeongsang Province are on Wednesday, Incheon and the Gyeonggi Province region on Friday and Gwangju and South Jeolla Province on Sunday.

Born in Canada, 17-year-old Mark is now a sophomore at Seoul Art High School.

Mark first debuted in April 2015 as a member of S.M. Entertainment’s NCT U, then again in July as a part of Seoul-focused unit NCT 127, then finally as the oldest member of NCT Dream, which features only teenagers.

The first episode of Mnet‘s “High School Rapper” will air in February.
