“Make It Pop” is a music oriented comedy which follows three girls away at boarding school. With the help of their new DJ friend, Caleb, the 3 girls come together to form a K-Pop band called XO-IQ. Their K-Pop group is composed of social media guru, Sun Hi Song, future fashion designer and fashionista Jodi Mappa, and smart girl Corki Chang. The girls don’t have much in common, but their love for music brings them together to find fun, friendship and plenty of mischief at their new school. The 4 friends turn an old roller rink into a teen dance club where they can show off their dance moves. The show follows the girls as they go after their dreams of being pop stars and juggle their other responsibilities, such as school work.
