What is the plot of The [email protected]?

The story revolves around 13 professional female idols and their story as they work hard in order to slowly make their way to the top and make their dream of becoming country-wide celebrities a reality. 765 Production Studio manages the all-girl group. The girls learn that becoming a top idol isn’t all fun and games. Hard work, sweat, and tears will pave their way to greatness in order to flourish in the industry. 765 Pro must also keep an eye on the competition – 961 Production.

The very popularity they desired now threatens to tear the bonds of their friendship apart. In order to keep the group together, they must discover a balance between work and friendship before everyone decides to go their separate ways. These girls encounter lots of personal and professional problems, but their deep friendships with each other and mutual support help them weather these storms.
