Megan Lee is back with another video on her famous YouTube channel to promote, once again, her upcoming Nickelodeon show "Make It Pop," confirming that this show is truly for little girls.
She cutely introduces the video with "Yoyoyo, peace," which is reminiscent of...
Anyway, she then introduces the MV for "Now I Am Here" in which she is as energetic and gleeful as ever, somewhat exciting the crowd with her performance and incorporating some cute K-Pop-inspired V-signs into her dance. Unfortunately, the song doesn"t do justice to her super powerful and beautiful vocals (we know how well she can sing!) and the weird highlights don"t really complement her looks, but she seems to be enjoying herself, which is all that"s important.
The show premiers on April 6 at 7 PM on Nickelodeon! Will you be checking it out?
(Photo : Nickelodeon ) Make It Pop is an upcoming childrens live action show which will air on the American television network, Nickelodeon. The program was initially billed by American media as a domestic take on Korean pop but has recently clarified its description as K-pop inspired.
Korean-American actress-turned Korean pop vocalist Megan Lee will lead the cast of Make It Pop as Sun Hee, an aspiring singer who attempts to strike out in the music industry while studying at an international prep school.
Although, Lee is currently described by many mainstream outlets as a YouTube star, she debuted in Korea as a solo vocalist on Soulshop.
The actress provided better insight regarding the show, during a recent interview with the blog BTS Celebs. In the interview, Lee clarified that Make It Pop is not an American K-pop show and will not have idols as guests for the first season.
When asked if there would be any K-pop guest appearances since it has been considered by many to be a Korean pop show, she stated, "A lot of people have misunderstood that this show is about or based on K-pop, but actually its not.
The Nickelodeon star went on to provide further context about the programs billing as a K-pop inspired show, The show was created and inspired by some of thevery colorful parts of the K-Pop industry [outfits and concepts of famous girl groups] which is why the theme of the show is very bright and colorful."
She recently shared the song "Now Here I Am," from the show. "Now Here I Am" is an uptempo pop track which is performed in English, while reflecting the diverse musicality that is exemplified by Korean music.
K-pop fans have delivered mixed reactions to the upcoming Nickelodeon show, Make It Pop. In 2012, Nickelodeon produced a made for television film featuring Wonder Girls. The program premiered before America was hit with Gangnam Style and received low ratings. Many K-pop fans have pointed to this Nick Cannon production as a precedent that could impact Make It Pop.
Prominent figures in the Asian American community also expressed their concerns about Make It Pop. The initial description of the program led many people to believe that the childrens show would feature a cast that was predominantly Asian. However, the cast will reflect the multicultural dynamics of an international school.
Make It Pop is also the latest example of a Hollywood production which is led by an Asian American star. While the number of Hollywood television shows that feature Asian actors has increased, most are bolstered by stereotypical portrayals of pan-Asian culture. Asian actors are often cast in roles other than their actual nationality, substantiating the notion that every country in the region is the same. While recent sit-coms like "Fresh Off The Boat and Selfie are examples of the stereotypical portrayal of Asian American adults in Hollywood, Make It Pop has the potential to provide a nuanced perspective to children and teens.
Despite her ongoing legal battle Megan Lee is set to star in her very own TV show!
Megan is the lead in Nickelodeon"s new show "Make It Pop" as, Sun Hi, one of three prep school girls who try to break free from the academics-only atmosphere of their school. The girls will join together as a pop band in this "musical comedy with a K-pop twist and an EDM beat!"
Megan"s character is describesd as, "[t]he definition of a pop diva. Funky, fresh and free, she can be a little scatter-brained, except when it comes to her number one goal: to be a star! She loves the spotlight and spends every possible moment on social media. Her quest? Becoming famous! Sun Hi loves her life and expects you to love it, too!"
Yesterday, Megan posted on her Instagram, "Stay tuned for my new show #MakeItPop on nickelodeon! #comingsoon in April!", with this cute selfie presumably from the set of her show. Given that Megan herself went from humble beginnings to a K-pop starlet, this role should be right up her alley.

American television network Nickelodeon has picked up three new daily scripted series for its 2015-2016 season, including a K-Pop inspired musical comedy series starring singer Megan Lee and actresses Louriza Tronco and Erika Tham. Co-created by Nick Cannon and Thomas W. Lynch, “Make It Pop” is slated to be a 20-episode series, with each episode featuring original music and performances.
The series is set in an international boarding school, and Megan Lee depicts Sun Hi who is from Korea and dreams of becoming a K-Pop star. In a way very much similar to Megan Lee’s actual story, Sun Hi uses social media to gain exposure and recognition for her talent. She bonds with fellow schoolmates and K-Pop enthusiasts Jodi (played by Louriza Tronco) and Corki (Erika Tham), eventually forming a K-Pop band with them that goes on to compete for a spot in the school musical.
Meanwhile, Megan Lee filed a lawsuit six months into her debut last year against her management agency Soulshop Entertainment regarding a contract dispute. In an official statement, Megan Lee’s representative alleged that the agency signed Megan Lee to the musical “All Shook Up” without her permission and that she received unfair treatment as well as verbal abuse. The lawsuit is still pending.
