Some talents go through the process of auditioning, while others are spotted at random and introduced to influential people in a network. The luckier ones get their exposure immediately, whereas others have to wait if their time will ever come. For the meantime, they just have to learn to sing, dance, act, and other skills that would firm up their steps in the business.
With the humungous number of talents wanting to break into the business, networks are assured of second-liners in case their main stars decide to leave, become difficult to work with, or simply lose interest. The traditional way of promoting talents individually seems too costly, and thus, the network has to be creative. Now, talents who have potential, but have yet to find their distinction are lumped in groups. As time passes, one will definitely stand out, but for the meantime, the members have work and exposure.
When the network decided to form a new group, the management had to contend with the past of the members. Member 1 (M1) already has a lovechild, but was advised not to reveal having a child. The belief is that one loses luster once he/she admits to having a child. Thus, M1 kept his secret and sacrificed the truth. However, time did not want to play along and circumstances led to M1’s admission.
It must have been a relief.
Now, Member 2 (M2) is caught in a dilemma. When the mother of his child (yes, he has one, too!) saw the revelation of M1, she threatened to spill the beans on M2 if he would not be man enough to recognize in public his child. Thus, M2 is allegedly expected to give his confession any time soon.
Then, Member 3 (M3) is upset over something that he could not reveal. Unlike having a child, admitting one’s sexual preference is like admitting one’s career runs the risk of ending. M3 is being built in the mode of a matinee idol and thus, he has been given a Newbie Partner (NP). To spice up things, Member 4 (M4) has entered the scene to form a love triangle. The audience loves it, but there are a couple of problems. First, M3 noticed that M4 is crossing the boundary by making the love triangle real, which would benefit NP, of course. Second, the problem is that something is between M3 and M4. Hence, their triangle was becoming complicated and before things get out of hand, management decided to let things cool over by separating M3 and M4.
Finally, there’s Member 5 (M5). Compared to the others, M5 has more experience outside the industry, more mature, and packs more muscles. In short, he seems awkward to be part of the group. Suggestions have been raised for his removal from the group, but people are wiser as they know such act is impossible. Besides, M5 is backed up by an Influential Personality (IP), whom no one would dare challenge. Thus, for the meantime, M5 stays.
Given the recent developments in the network, only the ones who would be granted the smile of Lady Luck would have the chance to pursue that elusive dream. Considering that the members of the group do not have showbiz connections, they could only rely on their talents and hope the audience would favor them. The network has too many talents these days, but who knows, if the next big one will be one of the members.
