Plot
Lee Ma-ha (Jung Ji-so) is a member of the Kpop girl group "Tea Party". Despite the group's lack of popularity, Ma-ha has received some media attention due to her physical resemblance to the popular solo singer, La Ri-ma (Park Ji-yeon). During a reality TV program where idols participate in sporting events, Ma-ha accidentally injures Hyuk (Choi Jong-ho), a member of the famous boy group Shax. Another member of Shax, Kwon Ryok (Lee Jun-young), develops a dislike of Ma-ha as a result of both the incident and her attempts to gain popularity by imitating Ri-ma. However, the two are forced to cross paths on television programs and when they are cast in a drama together. Meanwhile, Ma-ha's childhood friend and fellow idol, Lee Yu-jin (Jeong Yun-ho), from the group Sparkling, has feelings for Ma-ha and tries to shield her from what he believes are Ryok's negative intentions towards her.

Imitation Press Conference

Director (Han Hyun Hee):

“I’m an amateur when it comes to knowledge about idols, but when I was reading the webtoon, one scene stuck out in my mind. I could visualize the fans’ light sticks shining on a darkened stage as if to symbolize that it was the fans who were the real stars rather than the celebrities. After seeing that, I felt like this could really become a drama. I charged forward with just that one scene in mind. I wanted to make a drama in which the actors could express their own stories and give comfort to themselves.”

g.o.d’s Danny:
“After I was cast, I read the webtoon and found I could relate to it. I’ve been a singer for 22 years, and it felt like I was reading about my own hardships and concerns.”

Jung Ji So:

“There was some pressure at first. There were so many talented co-stars, including my members Lim Nayoung and Minseo. I threw myself into practice so that I wouldn’t fall behind in terms of dancing or singing, which they both do so well. I needed a lot of help when I first went up on stage. There are so many scenes in the drama when we’re performing on stage. There are so many things that I never realized we have to think about, like our movements on stage, eye contact, and matching well with the dance and the other members. I got a lot of help from my co-stars about that. "

Lee Junyoung:
“When I read the webtoon, I felt that there was going to be a difference in looks. The director teases me by saying that Kwon Ryoc is really handsome. Kwon Ryoc is such a perfect character, but I don’t think I’m as good-looking or as talented as he is. Instead of trying to recreate him 100 percent, I talked a lot with the director about what the key points of the drama were. Rather than copying Kwon Ryoc in the webtoon, I felt a sense of pressure to show how Lee Jun Young would interpret Kwon Ryoc. He’s a beloved character in the webtoon, so I practiced a lot to show people a good image.”

T-ara’s Jiyeon:
“I’ve been a singer for a long time, and that helped me understand LA LIMA. I worked as a member of a team for a long time, but there’s a lot more work involved in becoming a solo singer. I reviewed a lot of performances by diva performers like Uhm Jung Hwa and Lee Hyori. I tried to create a unique aura for LA LIMA.”

ATEEZ’s Yunho:
“It’s an honor to be able to do such a great project as my first acting role. Through the support of the people around me, I was able to step into my first acting chance with confidence. There are so many amazing seniors who have more acting experience than me. They gave me a lot of advice. I was really nervous for the first filming, but Lee Jun Young and Jung Ji So gave me a lot of help with the dialogue and gaze.”​
