More Actors Confirmed For JTBC’s Upcoming Drama About Idols Starring Hani, Kwak Si Yang, And Kim Min Kyu
JTBC’s upcoming drama “IDOL: The Coup” has confirmed more members of its lineup!
“IDOL: The Coup” tells the stories of “doomed idols” who need a single success in order to disband. It is about young people who confidently let go of their dreams as they grow through their failures and take courageous steps toward their new goals.
EXID’s Hani stars as Kim Je Na, a member of the six-year-old idol group Cotton Candy. Kwak Si Yan stars as Cha Jae Hyuk, the CEO of Cotton Candy’s agency, Starpeace Entertainment. Kim Min Kyu stars as Seo Ji Han, a member of the popular idol group Mas that is also signed under Starpeace.
Although Cotton Candy was Starpeace’s first girl group, they are considered failed idols because the public still doesn’t know their names. Including Hani’s character, Kim Je Na, there are five members of the group. LABOUM’s Solbin plays Hyun Ji, a rapper and main dancer, whose troublemaking tendencies run the risk of causing scandal. Han So Eun plays Stella, the visual, center, and oldest member of the group, who is described as kind and sensitive. WJSN’s Exy plays L, the main vocalist of the group, who falls into despair and anger when the group fails to succeed. Redsquare’s Green plays Chae Ah, who has famous actor parents but doesn’t stand out in terms of talent.
Including Kim Min Kyu’s character, Seo Ji Han, who is the leader of the group, there are five members of Mas. Jo Joon Young plays Ray, the brains of the group, who ranked first in grades at his school and is also good at singing and dancing. Hong Eun Ki plays Yool, a sweet and affectionate idol who is in charge of dancing in the group and is great at communicating with his fans. Baek Seo Hoo plays Tae Young, who is famous for his good looks and upright image, but is always nagging the other members in his group. Lee Eun Sang plays Dan, the youngest member of the group, who always seems older than his age.
“IDOL: The Coup” will premiere sometime in November.
