Member Of Rising Rookie Boy Group Shows Off His Impressive Vocal Talent In “The King Of Mask Singer”
On the December 6 episode of MBC’s “The King of Mask Singer,” four contestants challenged the current champion, Stove Cat, on his path to a sixth consecutive win.
The first match-up of Round 2 was between Music Note, who sang Sam Kim’s “Make Up,” and High School Third Year, who sang Lee Seung Chul’s “My Love.”
Lee Soo Ji said, “I’m a huge fan of High School Third Year. As soon as I heard him sing, I thought, ‘I can’t believe I get to hear him live,’ hinting that she knew who he was. Sandara Park also said that she recognized the voice and mentioned the initial “B.”
As a result of a three-vote difference, Music Note advanced to Round 3 and High School Third Year took off his mask to reveal himself as TREASURE’s main vocalist Bang Ye Dam.
Bang Ye Dam said, “I was on ‘K-Pop Star’ in the past, and I was a trainee for about seven years. I watched ‘The King of Mask Singer’ a lot. I thought to myself, ‘If I make my debut, I could go on that show.’ That day was today.” He shared that he had asked the advice of WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon and said, “He gave me confidence when he said, ‘It will be fine if you just do it the way you usually do.'”
Bang Ye Dam further shared that he had gotten inspired to pursue music from his parents. “My parents both do music,” he said. “My father, Bang Dae Shik, sang MBC’s theme song.”
Sandara Park said, “I really wish we could have seen more of him. It would’ve been great to see him perform R&B and really tear up the stage. He’s someone whom all the YG Entertainment seniors and producers praise a lot, so I was really looking forward to his debut. Please show him a lot of love!”
