Mar 24, 2021

One of the biggest K-Pop survival shows that exists today is almost here! 

Mnet's Kingdom: Legendary War is set to air on April 1st at 7:50pm KST. The six groups facing off for their chance to earn the title of performances kings include BTOB, iKON, SF9, The Boyz, Stray Kids, and ATEEZ. 

 

As we countdown the handful of remaining days until the show airs, here are 10 things to watch to get prepared.

The Boyz

 

The Boyz were on the inaugural season of Kingdom last summer, competing against other amazing groups like Pentagon, Oneus, and Verivery for the crown. The Boyz took the trophy, successfully securing their spot in Kingdom: Legendary War to compete with some of the best 3rd and 4th generation K-Pop groups to date.

ATEEZ

In the summer of 2018, ATEEZ was already making a name for themselves and they hadn’t even debuted yet! From their dance performance videos when they were KQ Fellaz to the power vs. sexy dance battle taking on BTS, NCT, and WANNAONE songs. They had fans swooning from the get-go.

SF9

 

SF9 has become somewhat of a legend in the K-Pop industry due to their impressive relay dances. Whether it’s showcasing their impressive dance moves, and charisma or cracking up fans with their signature goofiness, they never fail to deliver.

iKON

 

Back in 2016 iKON competed on the Chinese competition show Heroes of Remix. During their stint on the show, they did a 60-second performance of Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean that not only went viral on the internet but earned them praise from Michael’s choreographer too.

Stray Kids

 

From concerts and music show performances to music videos and everything in between Stray Kids are masters of the stage. If their online concert, Beyond LIVE - Stray Kids 'Unlock: GO LIVE IN LIFE' is any indicator of what we can expect during Kingdom: Legendary War, we are in for a treat.

BTOB

 

BTOB will be competing through their four-member subunit, BTOB 4U, as three of the members are currently serving in the military. Check out the music video for BTOB 4U’s song Show Your Love, written to help fans through the difficult situation due to the ongoing pandemic.
