Watch: EXID’s Hani And Kim Min Kyu Joke Around While Rehearsing Emotional Scene In “IDOL: The Coup”
“IDOL: The Coup” has released a new behind-the-scenes clip!
JTBC’s “IDOL: The Coup” is a new drama about idols who have failed to reach stardom and are struggling to let go of their unachieved dreams. The story centers on fictional girl group Cotton Candy, which consists of leader Jenna (played by EXID’s Hani), Hyunji (LABOUM‘s Solbin), Stella (Han So Eun), El (WJSN‘s Exy), and ChaeA (Redsquare’s Green). The star-studded cast also includes Kwak Si Yang, Kim Min Kyu, former X1 member Lee Eun Sang, former RAINZ member Hong Eun Ki, Jo Joon Young, Baek Seo Hoo, and more.
The video starts with Hani preparing for her performance at an apartment event. A child she’s performing with tells her, “Hani, my mom likes you,” making her laugh in disbelief. As they continue practicing for the scene, she sweetly discusses the choreography with the kids.
Next, Hani’s joined by Kim Min Kyu and Jo Joon Young to film the scene where she unknowingly delivers chicken to their dorm. As they discuss the upcoming driving scene, the stars express amazement at the car and a staff member considerately comments, “It’s okay if you scratch it. It can even break. I’m worried that you guys will get hurt.”
Hani asks Kim Min Kyu whether he has his driver’s license and he confidently reassures her that he does. She asks how long it’s been and he answers, “Like two or three months?” Everybody starts laughing and Hani hesitantly comments, “He’ll be better than me, right?”
When her member needs her help, Hani’s character quickly leaves to catch a cab but has to walk a lot before Kim Min Kyu comes to stop her. She jokingly comments, “I’m kind of pissed that I had to come all the way here.” After they complete rehearsals, the two dive into the scene but run into some mishaps, like the taxi not arriving and Hani being startled by a pigeon.
