Nick Cannon Gets Behind New Series ‘The Drop’ (aka ‘K Pop High’)

Nick Cannon Gets Behind New Series 'The Drop' (aka 'K Pop High')

Nick Cannon, via his Ncredible Entertainment production shingle, is throwing his weight behind a new series titled "The Drop" (aka "K Pop High"), which will likely end up on the Nickelodeon network.

The project is described as a half-hour musical comedy about the drama of high school, set at a diplomatic boarding school that caters to kids from all over the world. The series will follow 3 girls who don’t know each other upon their arrival at the school, but soon discover that they share a sensibility for the K Pop vibe – K Pop being "Korean Pop" a musical genre that originated in South Korea, and whose roots can be traced back decades. 

Today, think South Korean singer-songwriter and record producer Psy’s global hit "Gangnam Style."

Cannon will co-produce the DHX Media project alongside Tommy Lynch, Steve DeNure, Tracey Jardine, Jim Corston.  

No casting announcements yet, but a December 2014 to mid-march 2015 production date is eyed.

Founded by Nick Cannon in September 2009, NCredible Entertainment currently has the "Teen Nick Top 10" which is a music video countdown show wrapping it’s 3rd successful season; "React To That" wrapping its initial 13 episode order on Nickelodeon; "Wild’n Out" airing its 6th Season on MTV2 (also scoring the highest ratings in network history); "Drumline 2" which just aired on VH-1 and will air in October 2014; and the 6th installment of the Nickelodeon HALO Awards will air live from NYC this month.

In development, Oxygen recently announced "The Assistants," which NCredible is producing, along with several other unscripted projects in various stages of development.

All you all crazy? It’s just a serie damn! Stop being like that, shit.

Frankieedawgg

I dont understand why everyone is upset. They could spread k-pop to more people. I actually want to be in this show. People are saying that this show is going to make more people hate on k-pop. But im super hyped for it. And quit being so judgemental. ✊

Sir Sheel

I will bet that Busker Busker won’t even be mentioned.

a child likes a song/artist-boom they youtube it and click on another YouTube video about kpop and enjoy it-boom a new kpop fan is born. This show may not be of your liking but look at the plus side for the kpop industry. I wish this show does well and portrays things properly so they kpop may continue to grow. (Like seriously if this show does well enough more kpop groups could do concerts all over the country and not just in the big huge cities) and as always FIGHTING! Let’s all watch this

ROVIXX~

1.) they will likely do research 2.) even if they don’t know anything about it neither did you when you first started getting into kpop. This show is giving the kpop industry a chance to get some light on it, some attention regardless of being good or bad is better than no attention and it could increase the number of international fans. Think about it; a child watches the show and becomes curious about what they are saying in a song-boom they want to learn korean, a child sees them dressing different-boom they want to see korean fashion (increase in korean fashion industry)

ROVIXX~

Although im against this show for the fact that so far they have only released things about Psy and not any other stars I see why they did it. Psy is more known for international fans who dont have extensive knowledge about kpop which is why they likely only mentioned him in the above article so not to confuse others by mentioning many other groups. You may be against it because they ‘won’t portray it properly’ or ‘they have no knowledge about kpop’

anonymous

NO NO NO NO! WTF NICKELODEON DOING A DRAMA ON K-POP?!? PSY IS NOT THE ONLY FCKING KPOP ARTIST IN THE WORLD! I USED TO LIKE NICKELODEON BUT NOW ITS JUST SHIT!

Fareha Ahmed

Please don’t, people will not only make fun ofkpop but your show as well.

Jj931

Please no… I’m embarrassed just reading the description.! :/

OMG

PLS NO PLSSSSSSSSS OMG NO… NO NO NO!!!!! O MY GOSH PLEASE JUST DONT I BET U ALREADY KNOW THE REASON WHY ALL THE KPOP FANS DONT WANT THIS SHOW TO BE AIRED. JUST PLEASE. DON’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please think this over

No.

Gabby

This will suck shit. Please no. NO. NO!

Elfstoria

No!!! NO!!! NO!!! WE DO NOT WANT NO!!!!

VIXXStarlight

Okay, I’ve been hearing about this for weeks and haven’t posted anything about it mainly because I was just trying to push it from my mind. I honesrly am really apprehensive about the whole thing. Kpop is really important to me, as well as a lot of people. I don’t think the majority Nickelodeon’s demographic will be take it seriously, even if Nick does a good job portraying it (which seems unlikely). And the whOle idea of it being a musical show is trohbling… are these young actors going to try and perform Kpop songs? I could go on forever about reasons why I don’t like this idea, and I really don’t have much hope that it will exceed my poor expectations. Maybe I’m also a little possessive and don’t want to deal with a bunch of kids jumping on the bandwagon, saying they’re huge fans of Kpop because of this show, etc. But if it does well and some people really are introduced to Kpop in a good way through this show, then great. But I’m highly skeptical.

NO

No, please don’t. Some of the k pop groups are already gong through scandals and some controversies. You might ruin some idols’ career.

Please Dont

OMG NO. PLEASE. I know how America is, they won’t get it. I’m pretty sure Nick won’t even get the right artists since he just knows about PSY. America won’t understand. K-pop is fine how it is now, please don’t air the show.

Kim Ji Min

just… please.. someone just burn the script… please….

Kayla

I excited I don’t see why some people are against it and there’s even a petition WHAT I think you guise should give a chance before you to ban it just let it happen and if it’s bad then make a petition PLEASE GIVE IT A CHANCE

Cheridan Buck

Real kpop fans will not let this mockery show. sign the petition at change.org.

ilsekpop1

NO OHHHH NO no no no NO! i love kpop but don’t do this omfg they don’t know anythink about kpop jeez….only because PSY had a song that was very populair.but you don’t have to make a show about kpop ….just DON’T. just stupid really stupid. if the show really is conna come i would be mad to i swear. pfft about three girls that they like kpop thats just stupid..

Hannah

This should not be aired. it’s just an invitation to more stereotyping about kpop, Korea and us kpoppers. I feel like nothing good could possibly come out of this.

jones

wait can somebody please explain to me wtf is kpop. is it fried chicken?

Yolanda

So nickeldeon and all there are going to make a film that they dont re

Even know. Excellent. Neckeoldeon sure will go down

hi again mistake

mistake "normal"

Hi..read this...please

Why would this be done now if a few years back and I mean really many few years back little liked kpop and knew about it and people made fun of me because of it … I don’t understand from all the sudden so many people like kpop and PSY is so cool like he is not the only one … there’s many more that sing just as good or even better than PSY…and yes I said BETTER…I feel really bad about this even a little offended and who is he to do this? how he had this ideia? does he liked it too? why he doesn’t do one about other normal bands like Blacl veil brides or lady gaga or even one replubic or 1D AND 5SOS… is it to mainstream to do about those bands ? it’s like you are saying that we are weird people, I don’t mind being weird but i think that i don’t need to expose that on TV . and if that it’s to bring attention to kpop please don’t if people want to be fans of it and like it let them discover them selfes, don’t "force" them to because kpop fans are really passionate in general and if you start liking kpop just because you saw someone from the tv like it and thinks it’s cool ..then unfortunaly you are not a true kpop fan.

cookie

ok, I don’t like this … I feel that the cast should be done by original kpop lovers that way I don’t feel offended and yeah…trying not to explode here

DangerousGIRL

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
i swear to you if you do this i will sue the production , i’m being nice here.. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DON’T DO IT. i F YOU DO IT EVEN WITH THIS WARNING I WILL BLACKMAIL YOU EVERYDAY AND GET MORE AGRESSIVE AS TIME PASSES…. NOOOOO WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? NOOOOOOOOOOOO JUST NOOOOOOO RESPECT KPOP LOVERS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO thanks for your attention.

Lydia

NO. LIKE SERIOUSLY? I mean i don’t think it’s going to bring a positive light onto kpop. It’ll only bring more criticism and PSY? Tbh PSY isn’t exactly kpop, he sings and all but… well that’s just my opinion. I just hope they don’t overdramatically stick kpop into random parts of the show. Ughh I just don’t want more haters on kpop after this. And if this brings more people into kpop i just don’t want those peeple who are into it because it’s what’s "in right now" -.- Fand who know the kpop world and understand the industry and how it works… I like how the kpop world is now and if anything bad goes down because of this.-. Damn.

no

They can not be serious about this…can they??
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT DO THEY KNOW ABOUT K-POP OMG!!!! THEY CAN NOT BE SERIOUS WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS!!!!!!!????

ashleeisbasic

You guys nick canon isn’t a dumb ass and I’m 80% sure that psy isn’t the only thing he knows about k-pop and he most likely is going to be studying because he’s paying for this to happen which means if it fails that’s on him.

Gaby Galvez

This is not rigth, if loop already has very racist comentcomments and "humhumor" this will just make it worse.

Lulu

LMFAO PSY. WTF PSY IS NOT EVEN A BIG KPOP ARTIST. They obviously don’t know ANYTHING about Kpop. Like come on. If you’re going name some Kpop artists, why only PSY?? I’m not saying PSY is bad, but THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT KPOP. THIS SHOW IS GOING TO BE A DISASTER AND PEOPLE WHO LIKE KPOP WILL BE BULLIED EVEN MORE IN SCHOOL

No

No no no nono PSY THIS PSY THAT THAT IS KPOP FOR THEM, THEY KNOW NOTHING !!!!!

Disappointing

This is a terrible idea, honestly. It will lead to even more generalization of Asian culture, plus I speak for everyone when I say that we do not want a bunch of pre-pubescent koreaboo ass children fangirling over someone more than twice their age (um, creepy) and corrupting what little respect the western culture gives to both kpop and it’s fans.

ciel

As an amreican kpop fan I say HELL NO to this! Why dose amrican entertainment always have to "americanize" forigen things,when the do a good chunk of the time its horrible. Example the american remake of BOF was HORRIBLE.Psy is cool beans,but please tell me thats your only source of kpop…plz.Nick Cannon your a cool dude Ive loved your shows growing up but take all these true kpop fans at theire word that this is a HORRIBLE idea PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS TV SHOW HAPPEN PLZ.NO, NO AND NO TIMES INFINITE!!

vicki

if they dont know SM entertainment they dont know kpop

netizensrmorons

psy has nothing to do with the show. they used him as an example because he is the most well known in the us.

plz

don’t mention psy ever again. he’s not that big in the industry. and he doesn’t have fans "hanging around", but ppl that like him for a few days, and that’s it.

June

Just…. no thanks.

Elle

I hope Nick Cannon or anyone at the NCredible team reads this and the rest of the responses, because they have the Kpop fan community in deep concern over how we will be depicted in a show in which the team producing it has never once showed any interest in it. People like "Psy" are not popular in the Kpop fandom. People like "Rain" haven’t been popular since 2008. If you want really popular groups that will be believable to the most likely viewers of the show (those who can relate to being Kpop fans), go for groups like EXO, BTS, SNSD, Sistar, 2NE1, BIGBANG, etc. Take a pulse on what ACTUAL Kpop fans enjoy, and definitely steer clear of what Americans think Kpop is about (that is unless you want the show to be unbelievable and have a large, angry group of people calling for its cancellation).

nopesonson

Nope.

nooo

#stopthedrop

Shin Min Chan

I think I will enjoy it. I mean it is kpop so I can at least be happy I don’t have to base my life of my phone and laptop to enjoy some kpop. But, I really just want to see how much they know about kpop.

riana

Whyyyy. ��I love Kpop, seriously… But why this?!

Jackie Lagunas

No this is dumb it’s going to be a repeat of Chad Future all over again

Tiny

They better include other artists other than psy! Still going to watch it to support KPOP. Hoping they put in some of my favorite Kpop groups ^~^

Christina

Guys. The author of the article about the show mentioned Psy so that people who are less familiar with kpop will know what they are talking about. Nowhere does it mention the show referencing Psy. As someone who attended an international boarding school in Japan and who likes kpop and hs brefriended people because of it, I would definitely like to see this show.

Katie

God please no.

Katherine

Okay. Let’s get this straight. I don’t know what this show will broadcast yet. Maybe they just mentioned Psy because they know people know him. I’m trying to calm myself right now. Whether or not it’s got good bands that I listen to and correct information, I’m still against it. I don’t know if other Kpop fans will agree but I don’t care. I love Kpop so much. It’s my life. I love my Oppas and without them, I’m nothing really. I wouldn’t do anything else with my time. I don’t want Kpop to be broadcasted. I don’t want people to find out about Kpop. I don’t want it to become the most popular genre of music. I support all idols and I know it sounds selfish of me but I don’t want it to become too mainstream. I love that Kpop is the buried treasure chest. You have to find it and once you do it’s perfection. I’d love to have more people listen to Kpop but I don’t want everyone to listen. IT won’t be special anymore. Artists will have more pressure and I have a feeling that idols will be pushed more and everything will go to crap. I’m just really nervous because this is my life, my fandom and I’m just hoping it doesn’t turn to crap. I support all artists and I don’t want to see that go away. 2014 was already a bad year

mdo7

Folks, I want you to all come down. I’m sure Nick Cannon will do his research and he has worked with Wonder Girls before. Also K-pop is gaining more publicity, I mean 2NE1 and BTOB are making an appearance on America’s Next Top Model, so please calm down and have faith in Nick Cannon.

Lea

THERES A PETITION TO STOP THIS GO TO CHANGE.ORG AND TYPE NICK CANON STOP THE DROP FROM AIRING PLEASE WE MUST NOT LET THIS AIR

Alli

Don’t even, that’s all I have to say. Nickelodeon sucks even more.

Mei

nooooo this will only add more ignorance to people when they see a show about it

LillyJay

I don’t care how much research they before hand, I don’t want a comedy tween show thats going to make fun of Kpop! They only mentioned Psy, and he is more popular internationally than anywhere else. If I didn’t already hate comedy, I definitely do now. I don’t care if it will make Kpop more well known and embraced, This show is going to be received badly! I mean, ANOTHER highg school drama/comedy with some sort of relevance to Kpop?? Please someone just create a petition to stop this.

Amy

No. Just… No.

R

no.no.no.no.no. Whose idea was this? just no.

Jones

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO wait wtf is kpop?

NO

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Anon I'm sad

NOOOOO please stop this ;-;

Why

NOOO OH PLEASE NO

Lucy

I’m terrified that my fandom is going to be turned entirely into a joke and racial stereotypes. If you want to make a show about kpop, be accurate, be respectful, and at least try to sell it to the right god-dang audience!!!!!

No

Oh please Nick, you know nothing about kpop… If your actually going to do this then MAKE A POLL FIRST. Wether this is a good idea or a really bad one! Then us Kpoppers will vote wether it’s good or not;) it’s for your own good! Because bruh. You’ve messed with the wrong fandom here! Kpop is big! Search on Google images ‘Kpop ocean’ then you’ll know what I mean, and it’s even bigger than kpop ocean!!

Seriously

When I said ‘bitches’ I didn’t mean you guys. I actually love Nickelodeon. But I meant some new KPOP ‘fans’ I’m sorry if I sounded rude, I was just mad:( If your going to promote KPOP, Nickelodeon isn’t the right place to start.

Seriosously

NO! Kpop is ours! Your going to RUIN KPOP! KPOP IS THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES ME HAPPY!! SERIOUSLY??? Nickelodeon!!???? You’ve got to be KIDDING Me!!! This is an EMBARRASSMENT! I don’t want some bitches who thinks they know kpop but they actually DONT’! You know NOTHING ABOUT KPOP! I BET YOU DONT KNOW WHO SNSD IS! 2NE1 IS! BIG BANG IS! SUPER JUNIOR IS! ETC. PLZ JUST STOP. This is going to ruin many people’s happiness… KPOP is our life… Even though I have no idea what they’re saying… I love them… KPOP is my life! KPOP is my world… I don’t want you to ruin this for many people like me… Please… Stop…

humdrumbum

Is he trying to cash in on K-pop’s popularity? Maybe. But since his Wonder Girls movie was such a huge flop, he’d be a moron not to change his approach this time around. And it’s possible that he might be trying to make up for that failure.

Yes, they may lead off with "Gangnam Style", which wasn’t necessarily taken seriously by everyone, but it WAS and still IS a hit around the world, which is no small feat. And since everyone is familiar with it, it’s a soft intro to the rest of K-pop.

I’m just as scared as everyone else that they’re going to portray K-pop unrealistically and make fun of it, but I can also see and hope for the possibility that this would be a friendly sort of way to introduce K-pop as a real genre of music to the people who don’t see it as such yet. Like, "You guys know Psy? YEAH, Gangnam Style!" "Yeah, Psy’s cool. But I’m more a fan of the woman in the video, Ga In. The group she’s in is EVEN COOLER. Lemme show you why…"

Dunno. Could go either way. But if it actually airs and they mess it up, you can be sure it’s not going to last.

No

No. I like that k-pop gets regonition but this is truly not the way. I think that a documentary on a popular music related channel would be more appropriate than this. I’m just dreading the future "omg do you know who whbxiejdjxj is? Omgomgomgomg" *rolls eyes* like you’re really gonna base an entire show off of this? Best luck to Nick Cannon but seriously, he better do k-pop justice. I will say that this doesn’t surprise me though, what with gdragon and psy’s collaboration with American artists and CL’s soon to be U.S. debut.

Gianna

Oh, this is nice. I’d like to see what they do with this concept. :) The article only mentioned Psy, but that’s the article, not Nick Cannon. If Nick Cannon wants to do ‘The Drop,’ then I’m pretty sure he knows more than just Psy, people. You people don’t even know him, how do you know what he listens to? XD

smilebyhello

I’m not really excited about that. Really not

Seaoh

Please don’t…just stop ruining and tainting good things. Are you serious,they’re probably going to just use all the "viral kpop songs" like Big Bang’s fantastic baby or Psy’s Gangnam style.I think Nickelodean and Disney have just gone to trash over the years, they have tv shows targeted to kids yet they don’t have any good influence and I wish someone would hurry up and just cancel them completely. America is such a waste of space.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...NO

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Ivy

I personally think this is a terrible idea, not because of the concept but because Nick Cannon and Nickelodeon have anything to do with it. I understand why Psy was mentioned here in this article, Because he’s the one K-Pop artist that EVERYONE in America is familiar with, But genuinely… It’s Nick Cannon.Think Wild’N’Out. One of the most awful things to happen to television since 16&Pregnant. I feel like this concept could be endearing in some sense, but it would have to be executed by someone who really knows K-Pop. Someone who understands. K-Pop is not just music. It’s a way of life… I think this whole production could really ruin how special it is to people who love it. Doing "research" on K-Pop, doesn’t really make you a credible source to produce anything regarding it.

Jones

Judging by the above comments I would say they really need to limit time on the public computers at the korean mental asylum. Also, WTF is kpop?

roseyuae

NO NO NO NO stay away from our KPOP WORLD PLZ let us live in peace YOU KNOW NOTHING about KPOP

Kim

I already know that this is gonna bring shame to K-pop, please tell me how many times you’ve heard someone say PSY is their bias. He is very known in the industry but you won’t see teenage girls fangirling over him. I am scared to see how K-Pop will be portrayed especially in the states.

lacey

wow

Nadia

There’s a petition, google Stop "The Drop" from being aired. It’s on change . org

Anon

DON’T YOU DARE DESTROY K-POP FOR US CANNON! I SWEAR TO GOD YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE FANS ALL OVER THE GLOBE SHUT DOWN THE PROGRAM WITH THE VIEWS HEED MY WARNING RIGHT NOW! DON’T YOU DESTROY KPOP FOR US BECAUSE US FANS BACKLASH WILL BE SOMETHING YOU’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. TAKE THIS DOWN FASTER THEN YOU POSTED THIS OMG I CAN’T BELIEVE NICK CANNON WOULD BRING KPOP INTO SOMETHING THAT HE HAS NO INFO ON!!! I LIKED KPOP WAY BEFORE IT WAS COOL IN AMERICA AND I WANTED IT TO STAY THAT WAY.

why

god is dead and we killed him

Jenna

What is he thinking? Psy isn’t even all the rage in Korea. Big Bang, EXO and Super Junior those are the big ones! Will there even be Koreans in this show? I hope it flops

Min

Just going to put this out there Nick. If you ruin K-Pop through this new show, then you’ve messed with the wrong fandom… We will wrip you to shreds, i can guarantie, if you do anything stupid. Just a warning, make your show very carefully … Millions will be watching and judging with an already bad mindset. Im worries but im keeping an open mind that ot migjt not be that bad. Just do some propper reaserch and include other bands besides Psy.
(Also, currently some contrversy going on over here in the K-Pop fandom. Might want to be carful. Some of us are still trying to get over some things. You might step on a landmine if your not careful)

km

Don’t

Omg

DON’T DO THIS NICK, DON’T DO THIS. K-POP IS SUCH A WIDE GENRE, DON’T LET THEM THINK IT’S ONLY PSY!!! But seriously, this just sounds awkward, like a more cultured zoey 101. I’ll still check it out though, but I really hope it isn’t as shitty as it sounds.

Kyler

Okay – at first i wanted to gag; that voice inside my head was screaming "no no nO NO!!!" but, if they can make this sow good (get genuine idols, represent the kpop fandom APPROPRIATELY and HOPEFULLY keep out of yg & sm) then this could be awesome.
unfortunately they already mentioned psy so…
(Psy is well know in America – he’s NOT NEARLY as liked in Korea, I promise you.

cat

so much no. don’t even bother pls.

jay

I wonder if any of the producers actually know anything about kpop.

alice

please no

Ben

Well, this is a first: I’ve read this piece three times, and I still have no idea what the hell any of this means.

potato

as long as they don’t try to sing

To the previous comments.

Psy is actually VERY well known in the industry. They are obviously going to do research on K-Pop before writing any scripts, so just calm down. It could be amazing and it is a great way to market K-Pop in general. I’m excited, I’ll probably watch it just for the support of K-Pop, if anything.

ivethivethyfunsize

NO NO NO NO NO!!! THEY DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT KPOP!! BUT SEROUSLY…PSY! THERE ARE BETTER ARTIST THAN HIM! THIS SHOW IS GOING TO BE HORRIBLE! I STRONGLY SAY THAT THIS SHOULDN’T BE CONTINUED TO GO ON OR ANYTHING!!! SO DISAPPOINTED AT NICKELODEON.

Ann

No. No no no and NO. I cannot believe they are actually going to do this. They know NOTHING about kpop. The fact thag they mentioned only PSY shows that. Psy isn’t even the big shot in the industry. He increased international love, but I guarantee most of it is ingenuine. I don’t believe that this will turn out to be a very good show with high ratings. Completely oppose.

Jor

No no no no. No just no.
