American television network Nickelodeon has picked up three new daily scripted series for its 2015-2016 season, including a K-Pop inspired musical comedy series starring singer Megan Lee and actresses Louriza Tronco and Erika Tham. Co-created by Nick Cannon and Thomas W. Lynch, “Make It Pop” is slated to be a 20-episode series, with each episode featuring original music and performances.
The series is set in an international boarding school, and Megan Lee depicts Sun Hi who is from Korea and dreams of becoming a K-Pop star. In a way very much similar to Megan Lee’s actual story, Sun Hi uses social media to gain exposure and recognition for her talent. She bonds with fellow schoolmates and K-Pop enthusiasts Jodi (played by Louriza Tronco) and Corki (Erika Tham), eventually forming a K-Pop band with them that goes on to compete for a spot in the school musical.

The Nickelodeon musical series “Make It Pop” premiered this week, with Korean-American vocalist Megan Lee at the helm of its youthful cast. “Make It Pop” received widespread media attention as one of the first attempts by American television to take on K-pop. The show incorporates the captivating aesthetic of the genre, with Korean pop culture posters prominently displayed on the walls of the female protagonists. However, the songs that are performed by Sun Hi (Megan Lee), Jodi (Louriza Tronco) and Corki (Erika Tham) are not delivered in Korean. To call it a K-pop show is reductive as “Make It Pop” provides a comedic analysis of pop culture beyond the genre, focusing on the selfie-obsessed, electronic dance music (EDM) trends that pervade the 13-25 age demographic.

Korean-American pop vocalist and actress Megan Lee leads the stellar cast of Nickelodeon’s musical comedy, “Make It Pop.” She portrays Sun Hi Song, an enthusiastic, aspiring pop idol who draws on electronic dance music for inspiration. “Make It Pop” weaves the vibrant aesthetic of Korean pop into a tale of prep school students who are on the verge of breaking into show business. Set within the hallways of Mackendrick Prep, Sun Hi and her roommates Corki (Erika Tham) and Jodi (Louriza Tronco) enjoy madcap adventures during their journey towards stardom. The 19-year-old rising star provided KDramastars with a phone interview, where she discussed her role on “Make It Pop” and her journey towards becoming one of Nickelodeon’s hottest new stars.
