The latest episode of MBC’s “King of Masked Singer” revealed the identity of “Woodcutter” to be one of the main vocalists of a talented self-producing boy group!
“King of Masked Singer” aired on January 14 and “I’m the person who stole the flower fairy’s clothes, Woodcutter” and “I only wish for me to do well, Full of Luck” battled it out to see who would move on to the next round.
“Woodcutter” revealed that he would be singing Big Mama’s “Yeon” and explained that it was a song he’d been preparing for three years so he could perform it on the show. “Full of Luck” performed Kim Gun Mo’s “Bird Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and both performers wowed with their high notes and stage presence.
The two contestants gave a stellar performance but the victory ultimately went to “Full of Luck” with just a seven vote difference of 53 to 46.
“Woodcutter” took off his mask to reveal that it was none other than SEVENTEEN’s Seungkwan. When asked how he was feeling, he confessed that he had wanted to appear on the show since the pilot episode and that it had been a stage he had been dreaming of for a long time.
Seungkwan continued on to state, “I was so moved by how intently everyone was listening to me sing. I feel great about my performance and have no regrets. I will continue to work hard to be a person people can get excited for.”
The identity reveal was also shared on Twitter with the caption, “The identity of ‘King of Masked Singer’ contestant ‘Woodcutter,’ who has been stealing hearts with his soft vocal tone and quick wit, was Seungkwan. Spend a happy weekend with lovely Seungkwan, who steals Carats’ hearts every day.”
