I'm without a band, again? [screams]
Sun Hi to herself
Heart, Courage, Brains[1] is the last episode of Season 1 of Make It Pop. The episode aired on May 1, 2015.


As the school play approaches, Corki develops a case of stage fright, jeopardizing the entire production.

Full Summary

The play begins when the curtains rise. It was going well until Corki saw her father in the audience. This causes her to be nervous and forget her lines. Sun Hi and Jodi try to help her out, but to no avail. Soon Jared and Valerie started coming into the play to make sure it doesn't fail. With all else failing the entire crew starts to lose hope. Thanks to Mr. Stark having a heart to heart with everyone, their confidences were boosted and continue on with the play. They then wrap up the conclusion of the play with a musical number and bright lights. With a huge applause towards the entire crew, Sun Hi wanted everyone to congratulate Mr. Stark. Backstage, Jodi meets Hye Jung Ko (her fashion idol) who was looking for her to return her clothing designs (that she left behind in episode 12). Hye Jung offers her an internship and Jodi accepts. The audience wants an encore, but the lights and the stage started to fall apart due to the curse of Macbeth. Sun Hi, not wanting to lose this opportunity, moves the play to Club Ry Ri and XO-IQ perform. After the performance, they finally meet the owner of Club Ry Ri, Randy. He is also the friend of Nick Cannon. They meet Nick Cannon and Caleb ends up fainting. Nick is interested in the group and offers to take them on a tour they "accept", but Mr. Chang interferes because he didn't send Corki to MacKendrick Prep to abandon her schoolwork by going on tour and decides to take her home. Jodi also wants to work with her fashion idol, which means she'll have to quit the band, and talks to Caleb about it. Nick sees that there is a problem with the group at the moment and takes his leave (possibly hoping to hear from them again). With all this distress going around, Sun Hi claims that she lost her band and screams.
