Synopsis of Idoly Pride
To become an idol, I shed blood, sweat, and tears. Even so, I keep going because I want to shine. I want to earn it, become number one. I want to smile, make my dreams come true. I want to look back at a sea of people, I want to be recognized, and I want to find it. I want to overcome obstacles, and I only have my pride inside my chest.
No one is the center of attention from the beginning. We are all weak, and only those who do not break down in the process will reach the highest peak to become idols. This is the story of female heroes and the harsh reality they face to achieve their dreams.
