This drama is based on webcomic “이미테이션 / Imitation” by Park Kyung Ran (박경란) which was published from 2014-Sep-30 to 2020-April-15 via page.kakao.com.

Lee Ma Ha (Jung Ji So) is a member of the K-pop girl group Tea Party. Despite the group’s lack of popularity, Ma Ha has received some media attention due to her physical resemblance to the popular solo singer, La Ri Ma (Park Ji Yeon). During a reality TV program where idols participate in sporting events, Ma Ha accidentally injures Hyuk (Choi Jong Ho), a member of the famous boy group Shax. Another member of Shax, Kwon Ryuk (Lee Joon Young), develops a dislike of Ma Ha as a result of both the incident and her attempts to gain popularity by imitating Ri Ma. However, the two are forced to cross paths on television programs and when they are cast in a drama together. Meanwhile, Ma Ha’s childhood friend and fellow idol, Lee Yoo Jin (Jung Yoon Ho), from the group Sparkling, has feelings for Ma Ha and tries to shield her from what he believes are Ryok’s negative intentions towards her.
