What To Look Forward To As

The long wait for Mnet’s “Road to Kingdom” is almost over!

“Road to Kingdom” is the spin-off from the popular competition program “Queendom” last year. The show features seven boy groups—PENTAGON, ONF, Golden Child, The Boyz, VERIVERY, ONEUS, and TOO—who will compete against each other in missions every week.

Here are three things to look out for as the show prepares to make its premiere:

A banquet of performances to rival end-of-the-year awards ceremonies

Every year, K-pop fans look forward to the end-of-the-year awards ceremonies, which features special performances from their favorite idols as well as unexpected interactions between groups. “Road to Kingdom” has reportedly spared no expense in order to rival those ceremonies in scale, with contestants directly participating in brainstorming sessions for songs and concepts.

The performances will feature not just singing and dancing but also acrobatics and amazing stage props that aren’t ordinarily seen on music show broadcasts. The production staff also worked hard to prepare diverse stage set-ups and appropriate stage direction in order to showcase each vocalization, choreography, and facial expression.

The fierce competition for the crown

The competitors are diverse in almost every aspect, from the veterans PENTAGON (four years since their debut) to the rookies TOO (less than a month since their debut). Irrespective of age, company, or lineup, what matters the most is what each group brings to the stage. People are particularly looking forward to the competition between VERIVERY and ONEUS, who debuted on the exact same day and both enjoy a global fanbase.

“Road to Kingdom” will also have different rules from “Queendom,” which have not yet been revealed. Who will catch the attention of the public on “Road to Kingdom”? And who will be the final winner?

New variety show characters

Apart from the competition aspect, “Road to Kingdom” will be an opportunity to discover new faces and new talents. There are many chances for groups to interact and react to each other’s performances and for idols to show off their natural humor and wit. People are also looking forward to the chemistry between MCs Lee Da Hee and Jang Sung Kyu, who had great success with the previous season on “Queendom.”
