On the February 4 broadcast of MBC’s “King of Masked Singer,” the identity of “Ikey Like Pit-A-Pat Cake Girl” was revealed to be a talented female singer-songwriter.
“Ikey Like Pit-A-Pat Cake Girl” and “V-Line Handsome Pizza Man” sang a harmonious duet of Akdong Musician’s “Last Goodbye” together for the first round. With a score of 35 to 64, “V-Line Handsome Pizza Man” moved onto the second round while “Ikey Like Pit-A-Pat Cake Girl” remained on stage.
Panelist Yoo Yung Suk praised her voice and said, “She has a voice like a canary. She’s pretty, so I think many men voted for her, but I don’t think she’s a singer.” She performed Joo’s “Because of a Man,” which she had prepared for the second round, and took off her mask halfway through the song.
The identity of “Ikey Like Pit-A-Pat Cake Girl” was revealed to be singer-songwriter Juniel!
After her performance, Juniel commented, “I was nervous and also recently recovered from the flu. It’s been a while since I’ve appeared on a show and it’s been a while since I sang, so it was overwhelming standing here with my face covered. Please love the various sides of Juniel in the future.”
Juniel added, “People think I’m in my early 20s, but I’m in my mid-20s. I hope you will look forward to me singing about the concerns of people in their 20s.”
