Yup, you read that right.
Jeon Somi, Red Velvet’s Seulgi, and more idol girl group members will be producing a drama. The whole process will be documented in “Idol Drama Operation Team”/”Idol Drama Royalty” (working title), an upcoming KBS variety show.
The show will feature girl groups producing, writing, and acting in their own drama, which will tell the story of their growth and survival as an idol member in the entertainment industry.
An insider revealed, “The members will participate in working on the script as well as finishing up the drama. That process will be shown in the variety show. When the script is finished, they’ll be acting out their own script, so it’ll complete their growth story. The script production will be shown as a variety show and the completed product will be shown as a drama.”
The show will be streamed online, but will be added to KBS’ regular television broadcast lineup if it receives positive feedback.
The only confirmed members are Somi and Seulgi as of now, but the broadcasting station is set to cast 5 to 6 more girl group members soon.
The show is set to begin filming in April and slated for a May release.
