Synopsis of Idoly Pride

To become an idol, I shed blood, sweat, and tears. Still, I keep going because I want to shine. I want to deserve to be number one. I want to smile, make my dreams come true. I want to look back on a sea of ​​people, I want to be recognized and I want to find it. I want to overcome obstacles and only have my pride in my chest.

Nobody is the center of attention from the start. We are all weak, and only those who do not collapse in doing so will reach the highest peak to become idols. This is the story of female idols and the harsh reality they face in order to achieve their dreams.
