Girl Group Member Impresses With Her Mature Vocal Tone On

On the November 1 episode of MBC’s “The King of Mask Singer,” eight new challengers emerged to fight for the throne.


The first match-up of Round 1 was between “Pineapple Pizza” and “Mint Chocolate,” who sang a duet version of Lee Hi’s “HOLO.” Pineapple Pizza impressed the panelists with her husky tone, while Mint Chocolate showed off their sweet vocal color.

In the talent show, Pineapple Pizza also showed off her dance skills with 2NE1’s Sandara Park.

At the end of the match-up, Mint Chocolate advanced to Round 2 with 14 votes to Pineapple Pizza’s 7. Pineapple Pizza sang 2NE1’s “Missing You” before taking off her mask to reveal herself as (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi.

Yuqi had impressed the panelists not only with her unique vocal tone but also her fluent Korean pronunciation. Before she took off her mask, the panelists had guessed that she was a veteran girl group member.

She said, “It’s been about two and a half years since we debuted, but there are still a lot of fans that are confused. People think that I hold a dance position or a visual position. I wanted to show the public that Yuqi can sing as well.”

Yuqi also shared that she had particularly wanted to get Sandara Park’s vote. Sandara Park said, “Of course I voted for Yuqi. (G)I-DLE is carrying 2NE1’s line forward.” Yuqi said, “On a personal level, she’s a senior artist that I really love. It’s also the wish of the (G)I-DLE members to become a cool girl group like 2NE1. I feel honored and happy.”

On Twitter, Yuqi wrote, “Did Neverver [cute form of Neverland, (G)I-DLE’s fandom name] enjoy ‘The King of Mask Singer’? Haha, I’m sure you all knew it was Yuqi. Our Neverver are the best!”
