The director Alika, decides to make a competition of musical groups in that institution and that they can participate and win the “Mega-SoundPop”, the great event where only the musical bands of greater projection in the digital world face each other. That’s when Anthony’s brother comes up with a brilliant idea… They must form a Boyband in the style of K-Pop… But like them they must be at least seven members. Anthony along with his brother JP, begin to organize a great casting to get the 5 remaining members of their new “Boyband” and Lucy decides to help them because she wants Anthony to win the competition and defeat the “So Sweet”. The Group, originally of 7, loses a member and so they can’t compete… Unless Lucy, who knows the song, participates… Lucy refuses, first, She is not a boy… and second she can’t dance!
