The identity of “Secret Garden” on MBC’s “King of Masked Singer” was revealed to be a popular actress with vocals that could easily match that of singers.
“King of Masked Singers” returned on November 19 after being canceled for 11 weeks to showcase the stages of challengers against “Prince of Tree Frog.”
In the second round of battles, “Grandfather Clock” gave an energetic performance of Kim Tae Woo’s “Love Rain” while “Secret Garden” chose to sing Kim Hyun Sik’s “Dream of Summer Night.”
The two performance both wowed the audience, but the victory ultimately went to “Grandfather Clock,” who won by just five votes.
“Secret Garden” was then revealed to be actress Lee Elijah, best known for her appearance in the drama “Fight My Way.” There had been a debate about whether she was an actress or a singer, but everyone was taken aback when she was revealed to be the popular actress.
The celebrity panel had nothing but praise for Lee Elijah. They asked her to sing more, complimenting, “You sang the best among all actors who had appeared so far.”
“I had taken part in KBS’s children’s choir. I changed schools a lot when I was young, so music was always my friend,” Lee Elijah said. “I was excited to have an opportunity to sing like this. Thank you.”
She went on to reveal that when she first went upstage, she wanted to impress and move people with her performance. “But I was moved so much through this stage. You gave me the day that I’ll never forget in my life,” she said.
