Watch: Hani, Solbin, Exy, Han So Eun, And Green Chat With Fans + Celebrate Cotton Candy’s Debut Behind The Scenes Of “IDOL: The Coup”
JTBC’s “IDOL: The Coup” has shared two new behind-the-scenes videos of Cotton Candy during filming!
“IDOL: The Coup” is a drama about idols who have failed to reach stardom and are struggling to let go of their unachieved dreams. The story centers on fictional girl group Cotton Candy, which consists of leader Jenna (played by EXID’s Hani), Hyunji (LABOUM’s Solbin), Stella (Han So Eun), El (WJSN’s Exy), and ChaeA (Redsquare’s Green). The star-studded cast also includes Kwak Si Yang, Kim Min Kyu, former X1 member Lee Eun Sang, former RAINZ member Hong Eun Ki, Jo Joon Young, Baek Seo Hoo, and more.
The first behind-the-scenes video takes viewers back to Cotton Candy’s debut performance six years ago. Just like they would for a real music show, the group diligently practices their formations and choreography. They start filming the performance when Hani suddenly calls out for everyone to stop and picks up a fallen ribbon.
After monitoring their performance, the group then performs in front of their fans. Exy adorably tells the crowd, “Oh, you look so pretty!” She then asks, “Isn’t this tiring?” They all reply in unison that they’re okay, then one fan calls out, “I became okay after seeing you!”
The next video features the girl group’s first visit to their eerie basement practice room. Their agency CEO comments, “Oh, it’s not waterproof…” but the girls are encouraged by Jenna to get right to cleaning up the space. Although exhausted from cleaning, their debut song begins to play, inspiring the group to start an impromptu dance party.
Next, the stars get ready to film their debut celebration party. As they gather around the food, Solbin bursts into laughter at Cotton Candy’s stacked albums on the table as Exy comments, “That’s amazing, they’re really albums.”
Later, they pose for photos with their albums and Solbin asks, “Do we have some kind of group cheer?” She suggests they do the pose from their “White Day” choreography, especially exciting leader Hani with their new official cheer.
