Recently, a Korean live action drama adaptation of The iDOLM@STER was announced. Although it shares its name with the series, it is described as having completely new characters and an original story, with only the main theme of The iDOLM@STER tying it back to the original. Auditions were accepted from girls all over the world, as long as they were able to speak Korean.
For more information on the project, check out the press release on the official site.
The first round of auditions has ended, and 37 girls were selected for the next round, which involves voting by the fans. On may 14th, the top 20 from the fan voting process will be selected to work on the project. After this audition, there will be intense training six days a week until September, when filming will begin. The show is expected to air in early 2017. Vote for your favourites by liking their audition videos on the official YouTube channel and their pictures on the official Instagram account.
