Cheyenne is just figuring out the idol business. In terms of performances, dancing, singing, comebacks, diets, and getting along with her members, everything is doing just fine, but she just has one problem. Lee Taemin. Even as she tries to distract herself with someone else, he just keeps coming back to her thoughts. Will she get over this crush or will she just continue to play in this Monodrama?
Cheyenne(샤옌)- Our main girl. She was born and raised in America with a Korean-American mother. She was scouted online through her youtube channel where she used to post dance and singing covers, along with the usual music video reactions. Cheyenne’s training has been a bit unique. Unlike usual idols, Cheyenne is not being hidden from the public until she’s ready for debut. She has already hosted a few music shows, and participated in variety shows in order to advertise for her group and get experience. Her last bit of training is concert experience as a backup dancer for SHINee.
Minni(민니)- Cheyenne’s best friend. Although they aren’t debuted in the same group or at the same time, they developed a close relationship during pre-debut training. Both girls share greatest interest in dancing and used that common interest to develop their relationship. After hearing news that Minni wouldn’t be debuting at any time in the near future, she made a request that she and Cheyenne could participate in Cheyenne’s final training together. The request was approved and Minni was able to join Cheyenne as the second female backing dancer in SHINee’s concert.
Hyeonjin(현진)- The oldest, but not the leader (since Cheyenne is the leader) of their group. Hyeonjin hates aegyo and cutesy concepts. She is most well known for having a unique voice that stands out and makes her possibly the most recognizable in her group.
Ayeong(아영)- The “older” of the set of twins in the group. Ayeong has always been the “pretty girl” of the two. She loves designer clothes, jewelry, and makeup. Coming from a wealthy background, she and her sister are always the best dressed. If she were the maknae, she would be the aegyo queen, but Sophi has stolen that spotlight from her.
Alya(알야)- The “younger” of the twins. Because she was born second, she constantly feels a sense of inferiority around her sister. Instead of a pretty girl concept, she goes for a more mature feel. Alya tends to be a bit selfish in the beginning because of her insecurity as well as her spoiled background.
Sophi(소피)- Sophi isn’t quiet, but she’s the most shy. She tries not to speak out too much as she is the least fluent in Korean as her heritage is French-Korean. Although she doesn’t talk much, around her members she plays her role of evil maknae very well. On variety shows, she’s always the one to execute the perfect aegyo and constantly bothers Hyeonjin about wanting to do an aegyo concept.
Emmy(엠미)- One of the top idols in Korea and Japan. Emmy was casted to become an artist in Japan first at a very young age before starting activity in Korea and quickly increased her celebrity status in both countries by modeling, participating in variety shows, providing consistent comebacks equally between the two countries, and acting in dramas. She is focusing more on business now than performing and is responsible for the casting and some of the training of the idols under her extension of her entertainment company. Emmy’s idols always come out to be top of the line alongside YG, SM, and JYP artists. She’s known as the peacemaker as she is able to negotiate collaborations and other business with the top three company CEOs.
All other real-life idols such as SHINee, or any appearances from another group are based off of my interpretation of that specific person’s real life character and personality. However, this story is completely fictional and in no way am I claiming any of this exactly reflects how these people act in real life.
Any other original characters will be developed in-story.
