9 Muses of Star Empire

Pop groups are everywhere, and Korea is no exception. And this is the story of the start of one such group, 9 Muses of Star Empire.

There are nine of them, so they were named 9 Muses, because there were nine Greek muses... although there is no further differentiation of any of them being any particular muse. It isn't clear if this is an entirely manufactured group, or if some of them came together naturally... but I suspect they were formed by the manager wholesale. And so we get their story of them getting together for their big debut, and of the struggles they have along the way... and how the 9 may not be the same 9 all the way through...

Which is one problem with documentaries. At some point, you stop the cameras and start putting together your film, but the subject goes on. We do get a little taste of 'where are they now' for some of them, but the group as a whole... the person who introduced the film did say that the 9 Muses were doing a lot better now.

A decent look at the forming of a pop group... although I was reminded of the Pussycat Dolls (with less stripper background).
