Girl Group Vocalist Captivates With Her Sweet Voice On “The King Of Mask Singer”
The lead vocalist of a girl group left an impression on “The King of Mask Singer”!
On the January 6 episode, contestants “A Good Brother” and “Kongji and Patjwi” faced off in the first round.
They performed a sweet rendition of G.NA and Rain’s “If I Have a Lover,” showcasing their warm and clear vocal timbres respectively.
“A Good Brother” took the win for the round with 61 votes to 38 votes, leading “Kongji and Patjwi” to unmask herself. While singing Red Velvet’s “Bad Boy,” she revealed herself to be none other than Lovelyz’s lead vocalist Sujeong!
The idol is the fourth Lovelyz member to appear on the show. As someone who has produced extensively for Lovelyz and guessed her identity correctly from the beginning, panelist Yoon Sang fondly commented, “She is good at singing.”
Sujeong shared, “This year, I want to make songs that are like rice. I really like rice, and rice is a source of energy that you consistently eat even if it’s not a food that is particularly intense or memorable. So even if Lovelyz’s songs aren’t intense, I want to make music that can be a source of refuge and rest, music you find yourself searching for, which is why I said I want to make rice-like music.”
Backstage, she added, “I believe that ‘The King of Mask Singer’ was another way for me to grow as a singer. It was a special performance. I hope you receive many blessings in the new year, please support Lovelyz, and also look upon me fondly.”
The Lovelyz member also shared additional photos of her in her costume and mask through the group’s social media accounts.
She also wrote a short message to fans, expressing, “Kongji and Patjwi” was Ryu Sujeong. I was really, really nervous, but I worked hard while thinking of the Lovelinus [Lovelyz’s fan club] who would enjoy it. How was it?! I’m still emotional to the point of tears. It was a performance that I’m very proud of and made me happy.”
