Cast auditions will be held from the middle of May
Bandai Namco Entertainment today announced that The [email protected] (tentative title), a live-action drama adaptation of its popular idol raising simulation game series The [email protected], is in the works in Korea. The franchise released its first arcade game in 2005, and has produced no live-action drama adaptations yet in its home country.
The story of the drama will be set at a talent agency in Korea and will feature new idols (probably all Korean).
Auditions for the 15 cast will be held in Soul, Korea, from the middle of May. The 15 finalists will be determined
by online voting via various social media channels from all around the world.
The auditions and the TV drama project are planned and produced by Interactive Media Mix/IMX, which has
distributed many Korean entertainment contents (K-Pop, drama, musical shows) to Japan. The on-air of The
[email protected] is currently TBA.
