Remember the K-pop inspired show that Nick Cannon co-created? Well, Nickelodeon officially greenlit it for the 2015-2016 season, and K-pop singer Megan Lee will be starring as one of the female leads.

Co-created by executive producers Thomas W. Lynch and Nick Cannon, Make It Pop is a half-hour musical comedy series that follows three teenage girls who meet as roommates at an international boarding school and bond over their shared love for K-pop. With the help of a fellow schoolmate, the girls eventually form a K-pop band that gains school-wide recognition as they compete for a spot in the upcoming school musical.

Megan Lee will be portraying Sun Hi, an aspiring pop star who is a social media maven. Her co-star Louriza Tronco will play Jodi, a fashionista and hip hop enthusiast, while Erika Tham will star as Corki, a bookish classmate.

Produced by DHX Media, Make It Pop is one of three new live action shows to be picked up by Nickelodeon and has been signed for 20 episodes. Each episode will feature original songs and performances, in a format similar to the FOX musical series Glee.

Lee is currently involved in a contract dispute with her Korean management agency, Soulshop Entertainment. Her lawsuit against the agency is still pending.
