Idol: The Coup is a drama that will air on JTBC later this year.
The drama is about idol group Cotton Candy that has been active for six years without being successful. They are managed by the company Star Peace. The CEO is a “cold human calculator”. Cotton Candy will have to disband unless they have a success.
Another group under Star Peace is Mars. Unlike Cotton Candy, Mars is successful.
EXID’s Hani will play Kim Jena, a member of Cotton Candy. Kwak Siyang will play the CEO of Star Peace, Cha Jaeyeok. And Kim Mingyu will play Seo Jihan, a member of Mars.
Hani is perfect for this role because of her similar story. EXID almost disbanded on 2014, but a fancam by Pharkil went viral and saved their idol careers. Hani can bring that experience to her role as Jena in this new drama.
We will excitedly watch this story for updates!
