Korean Drama THE IDOLM@STER.KR introduces the 5-member Debut Team of Real Girls Project: YoungJoo, Sori, Yukika, Jane, and TaeRi!
Focusing on the story of the growth and development of a group of trainees that dream of becoming idols, THE IDOLM@STER.KR (script by Shin Hyemi, Won YoungSil / directed by Park ChanYool / produced by IMX) introduces the genius producer Sung Hoon (SinHyeok Kang) and entertainment agency president Park ChulMin (President Min-Chul Shim) alongside 11 trainees. Among those trainees is the Debut Team, all but used to the spirit of competition.
In the drama, YoungJoo, Sori, Yukika, Jane, and TaeRi’s debut was right in front of their nose when their agency suddenly went belly up. Looking out for them in a time of crisis, the mysterious President Shim (Park Chul-min) starts 825 Entertainment and recruits SinHyeok Kang (Sung Hoon) as the producer, all so that the girls can follow their dreams of debuting.
Meeting President Shim in the midst of a hopeless situation, the five have the opportunity to go after their dreams once more. All will be watching to see who will ultimately become idols, and since the Debut Team all has real-world experience, fans will have to wait and see what message the girls will send through the drama.
