My personal thoughts- written by Jazmine K.
This sounds interesting.
I have seen some idol dramas in the past, it’s not what I enjoy anymore because I’ve grown older but this one seems to be catered towards a slightly older audience. The pairing is very interesting, I wonder how well it will turn out.
I’ve seen kdramas about idols but not one that focuses specifically on PR despite how crucial they are to the idol industry especially considering how many idols got exposed for all sorts of things in 2021. The way you handle a controversy can be the difference between a career or not for that individual, not to mention how one idol can affect a company in its entirety.
There is obviously a lot to talk about and the topic of PR management is being discussed closely this year with the bullying controversies that played out in February and March and how some idols managed to somewhat salvage their careers while others lost everything.
