Hani will play the character of ‘Kim Jae Na’ a member of the 6 years ‘no name’ group Cotton Candy who cannot leave her failed dreams and would fight through any limits to gain success. Exy will play Hani's bandmate and a member of the K-pop girl group Cotton Candy, which hasn't seen a lot of success and is struggling to keep themselves afloat in the cut-throat K-pop industry!
