Mnet Confirms Reports That “Kingdom” Will Not Air This Year
After it was reported by Ilgan Sports that Mnet’s “Kingdom” will not be airing within the year, Mnet confirmed this to be true.
A source from Mnet stated to Hankook Ilbo, “It was a shame that we could only record ‘Road to Kingdom’ without an audience due to the prolongation of COVID-19. The producers are having discussions about showcasing ‘Kingdom’ with a different structure, and unfortunately, the show will no longer be part of this year’s lineup. In the second half of the year, we have ‘I-LAND‘ Part 2, ‘CAP-TEEN,’ and ‘Show Me the Money 9‘ prepared. Please show lots of interest [in these shows].”
“Kingdom” will be the follow-up program to “Road to Kingdom,” which involved a competition between boy groups PENTAGON, ONF, Golden Child, The Boyz, VERIVERY, ONEUS, and TOO. The Boyz, as the winner of “Road to Kingdom,” earned a ticket to compete on “Kingdom.” The rest of the lineup has yet to be confirmed.
