Season 2 premieres January 4 on Nickelodeon!
Make It Pop is a K-Pop inspired Canadian musical comedy series that follows three girls in boarding school—media star Sun-Hi Song (Megan Lee), fashionista Jodi Mappa (Louriza Tronco) and bookworm Corki Chang (Erika Tham)—who, with the help of Caleb Davis (Dale Whibley), form a high school K-Pop-inspired band called XO-IQ and find music, mischief, love, and friendship.
The Knockturnal had the chance to sit down with the cast of ‘Make It Pop‘ to talk about season 2:
How do you guys feel about coming back for season 2?
Erika: We’re all super, super excited. It takes everything that the fans loved from season 1 and really elevates it. The characters have really developed and sort of found there footing this season. The performances are crazier and the dynamic on set is cooler, were more comfortable on set and everything has just elevated and is taken to a whole new level.
Dale: You see the evolution of ‘Make It Pop’.
Megan: Definitely everything has been taken up to another step. We have new hairdos, new cool outfits, the storyline has definitely developed a lot. We got a whole new batch of 23 songs this season, including 3 songs in the Christmas episode so it’s going to be really fun. We hope the fans can look forward to it.
With the show being compared to K-Pop, do any of you listen to K-Pop?
Megan: I know some of the girls are more familiar with 2NE1 and Girls Generation, G-Dragon from BigBang. I think that after meeting me, because I am from the K-Pop industry in some way I think they have been a little bit more exposed to it.
Louriza: It definitely opened our eyes to a different genre.
Megan: I would show them a cool band I just found or a music video, we listen to K-Pop sometimes!
