M2 switches out members according to popularity, and the episodes reveal the things that occur while new members are constantly being selected for the group.

There was a lot of pressure, as this is the first time Im playing a lead role, he continued. I was afraid that I would inconvenience others, and I lost sleep trying think of how to display my character. I got a little more comfortable after the first two episodes aired.

His character Woohyun is an intimidating figure in the story. With his fans, he is known as the young prince with a charming smile, but to his label juniors, he is the hard to approach, intimidating type.
