Bandai Namco Entertainment’s popular media contents, “The IDOLM@STER” announced that they are working on Korean live action drama, “The IDOLM@STER.KR” celebrating 10th anniversary of The IDOLM@STER. They held a big audition for the casts and now they revealed 14 girls’ faces as main candidates.
Last month, there was a camp training for 10 days for candidates and they were rated from their trainer, agency and also public (through the number of “likes” on candidates’ videos on Youtube). These 14 girls are the ones that survived this camp training so far.
Candidates will join a long-term camp training from the middle of June and they will improve their singing, dancing and acting skills. At the end they will narrow down even more and once they decide 10 main casts, they will start shooting for the drama in September.
Here’s greetings from Youzo Sakagami, Chief Producer of The IDOLM@STER
“It’s a great news to congratulate that Japan’s beloved video game, The Idolmaster, has inspired IDOLM@STER.KR, a new Korean television drama, to launch. This project provides a unique opportunity to witness simulated characters come alive onto TV screens. The Idolmaster fans,please support your new idols in IDOLM@STER.KR!”
