JTBC has unveiled a new teaser for its upcoming drama “IDOL: The Coup”!
“IDOL: The Coup” is a new drama about idols who have failed to reach stardom and are struggling to let go of their unachieved dreams.
The newly released teaser begins with the downfall of Cotton Candy, which consists of leader Jenna (EXID’s Hani), Hyunji (Solbin), Stella (Han So Eun), El (Exy), and ChaeA (Green). The captions describe them as idols who “can’t break up with their failed dream.” The girls struggle with various aspects of their lives, and they look tormented and upset as they are at loss what to do.
On the other hand, their labelmate Mars is surging with popularity, and the boy group is showered with love and attention. Leader Seo Ji Han (Kim Min Kyu) confidently asks, “What are you going to do if I calmly receive this song?” However, he too has a hard time as he is seen engaging in a tense war of nerves with Cha Jae Hyuk (Kwak Si Yang), the CEO of Starpeace Entertainment.
The members of Cotton Candy make dire efforts to achieve their dreams. Jenna’s voiceover declares, “We’ll die together. I won’t make it alone,” proving her strong desire to make it to the top with her group.
