"Monthly Idol," an idol-fostering mobile game, has been attracting a growing number of players, including real K-pop stars Ilhoon from BTOB and Eunsu from MYTEEN.
In the game, the players are CEOs of an idol agency who can make their own K-pop groups from 150 idol trainees. The game is designed to reflect the reality of the show business world by dealing with contracts, streaming, world tours and even the dating issues of idol group members.
Many players have disclosed that they have become an "evil boss" after taking options mostly for the benefit of their company, not the singers.
Rapper Ilhoon revealed his play for nearly two hours on YouTube Monday.
He made fans burst into laughter as he gradually turned into a realistic CEO. For instance, when one of his characters was found dating, he said: "I am so disappointed ― I do not mind you dating, but you should not have been caught!"
Eunsu, from boy band MYTEEN, also got into the game and uploaded photos of it on the group's official social network on Friday.
"Please give me some tips for this game," the singer wrote.
