Summary

Genius producer meets ‘recycled’ trainees!

SuAh of the hottest K-Pop girl group, Red Queen, dies in an accident. At the time, her older twin sister, SuJi, is running a marathon, and is unable to pick up the phone call about the accident. When SuJi finally arrives at the hospital… it’s too late.

Media rumors spread about the relationship between SuAh and the Red Queen’s genius producer, Kang ShinHyuk. Instead of clarifying the facts from false, Kang ShinHyuk announces his retirement from the industry.

1 year later, the five trainees of Pure Entertainment receive news that their CEO has gone missing after declaring bankruptcy. The girls, who were preparing for their debut, are now left without a label and their dreams lost. Just as they’re worried about disbanding even before they get a chance to debut, Shim MinChul appears like a guardian angel. As the owner of the Pure Entertainment’s building, he decides to save the girls by taking over the entertainment himself. He switches the girls’ training rooms from the basement to the top floor, and switches the company name to 825 Entertainment.

CEO Shim then goes on a mission to find more girls to strengthen the group. He recruits 3 girls who each suffer from lost dreams due to a painful past. With the addition of Mint, who flew in all the way from Thailand, the original 5 girls start to butt heads with the new rookies.

Just then, CEO Shim surprises the girls by introducing them to the genius producer Kang ShinHyuk. Another surprise is in store when the door opens to reveal the addition of SuAh’s twin sister, SuJi!
