Hey everyone! I'm currently working on a story which revolves around the Japanese entertainment industry. One of the main characters, an aspiring singer named Jae is based on Younha. Some of the key elements of her story are actually based on what Younha herself went through to achieve stardom as a Korean-turned J-Pop singer. Here's a little blurb that describes the premise of the story:
"There's a thin line between chasing your dreams and being selfish. Have I just crossed the line?"
Three aspiring celebrities who face their own unique struggles as they experience the dark underbelly of the Japanese entertainment industry.
Jae, a young Korean born to a musically inclined family, has been stifled by her parents' overbearing musical preferences, and finally decides to try her hand at breaking into the K-pop industry, only to be brutally rejected. Has she reached a dead end?
Hiro, an underworked actor struggles to find work where he can, and despite his optimistic outlook he can feel the beginnings of regret stirring in his heart. Will he turn his back on the career he once pursued with passion?
Azami, the veteran of the idol industry at the tender age of twelve, feels like the smile that's been plastered on her face day in and day out is wearing out. Is her mask about to crack?
Follow these three as their paths intertwine, pulled by the strings of fate.
Each chapter of this story features a different perspective (Ex: chapter 1 is in Jae's perspective, Chapter 2 is in Hiro's perspective, and Chapter 3 in Azami's perspective) and this ongoing series has six chapters currently posted, two of which are in Hiro's perspective and focus on his experiences.
