“Kingdom” Releases Stunning Behind-The-Scenes Photos From 1st Battle

Mnet’s “Kingdom: Legendary War” has shared a new glimpse behind the scenes of its preliminary round!

On the April 1 premiere of the new idol competition show, the six competing groups—THE BOYZ, Stray Kids, ATEEZ, iKON, BTOB, and SF9—faced off in a 100-second performance battle through which they introduced themselves to viewers.

Each of the groups was required to use a song that had earned them a music show win for their performance, leading to a colorful “introduction” battle in which each of the six teams delivered a unique remix of one of their hits.

As “Kingdom” gears up for its highly-anticipated second episode on April 8, which will reveal the full results and the winner of the preliminary round, Mnet has now released behind-the-scenes photos of the six competing groups tearing up the stage during their first performances.

Check out the stunning new photos below—and if you haven’t already seen them, you can check out all of the performances from the first episode here!
