The Idolmaster KR has released an image of their new Red Queen members. The quartet include After School's Kaeun, Nine Muses' Sojin, TAHITI's Ari, and Han Hye Ri.

On October 13, The Idolmaster KR official website posted a notice of a member replacement; an original member of Real Girl Project, Hanabyul, has been replaced by sub-member Ji Seul for the series, as Hanabyul was noted to have suffered from a leg injury. One month later, it was revealed that After School's Lee Kaeun, 9MUSES' Sojin, Tahiti's Ari and I.B.I's Han Hyeri would be joining the cast as members of 'Red Queen', a popular girl group at the time of Real Girl Project's debut, in the live-action series.
The series was later picked up by the SBS-owned pay TV channels SBS Plus, SBS funE, and SBS MTV, and is scheduled to premiere on these channels on April 28, 2017.
