When is the EXO Xiumin-MONSTA X Hyungwon Starrer CEO-dol Mart Kdrama Releasing?


K-pop fans are always ecstatic about their favourite idols collaborating with each other on stage, but in a new twist, the CEO-dol Mart Kdrama (사장돌 마트) (also known as Boss-dol Mart) releasing this week will see two such artists coming together for a web series instead. It won’t be the first time we’ll be seeing some of the greatest K-pop names joining forces for a show like this, but it has still caught many fans by surprise because we usually see artists across different groups sitting down for variety shows instead of Korean drama series.

Reuniting two illustrious names of the 3rd Generation K-pop era, the upcoming series has got the EXOl and Monbebe fan-clubs raising the roof with anticipation as EXO’s Xiumin and MONSTA X’s Hyungwon will be spotted in the lead roles of this TVING K-drama title. In the past few week, the two singers have openly teased heartwarming details of their growing friendship, and now we can’t wait to see this surprising soft dynamic play out on the screen this September!

CEO-dol Mart Kdrama Plot / Storyline

The South Korean comedy drama series revolves around an idol group “Thunder Boys” that was driven to disbandment after an unforeseen incident, and now have to take on a new challenge of running a mart. After going their separate ways, the quintet starts leading their separate lives for five years, after which they chance upon the shocking revelation that they’re joint owners of a supermarket.


As can be expected, the show will capture the chaotic and dysfunctional attempts of the members to come to terms with the new chapter of their life as they head into a reboot era of facing what real life away from their fame stands for.
