Watch: Hani, Solbin, Exy, Han So Eun, And Green Fight Over Their Future As A Girl Group In “IDOL: The Coup” Teaser
JTBC has released a new teaser for their upcoming drama “IDOL: The Coup”!
“IDOL: The Coup” is a drama about idols who have failed to reach stardom and are struggling to let go of their unachieved dreams. EXID’s Hani, LABOUM’s Solbin, WJSN’s Exy, Han So Eun, and Redsquare’s Green star as members of the unsuccessful girl group Cotton Candy. Kwak Si Yang plays their agency CEO, while Kim Min Kyu, Jo Joon Young, Hong Eun Ki, Baek Seo Hoo, and Lee Eun Sang play Cotton Candy’s labelmates, a popular boy group named Mars.
The new teaser starts with El (Exy) standing alone as the other four members, Jenna (Hani), Hyunji (Solbin), Stella (Han So Eun), and ChaAa (Green) wait for her in the rain. In voice-over, someone says, “I’m going to be a star that stands out wherever I am. I’m going to be a star.” Someone else retorts, “That’s useless pride.”
The girl group members fall further into despair with the failure of their dreams and their career, getting into fights, causing scenes in public places, and crying alone. One says, “I have no tomorrow. So just leave me to live like I do.” Cha Jae Hyuk (Kwak Si Yang) and Seo Ji Han (Kim Min Kyu) make appearances, with Seo Ji Han leading Jenna somewhere as she says angrily to him, “Is this funny to you?”
Although Cotton Candy’s relationship as a group continues to fracture, the last shot of the teaser shows Jenna walking with new purpose and determination toward her future.
