Former Girl Group Main Vocalist And Current Musical Actress Challenges Reigning Champion On

On the November 21 episode of MBC’s “The King of Mask Singer,” four contestants continued their quest to become the new champion.


The first match-up of Round 2 was between Lump Sum Payment and Camellia Flower. Lump Sum Payment sang Esther’s “Song Ae,” showing off her emotional vocals. Camellia Flower sang Shin Seung Hoon’s “Like Someone in Legend,” and impressed with his high but powerful voice. Lump Sum Payment advanced to the next round and Camellia Flower unmasked to reveal himself as RabidAnce member John Noh.

In the third round, Lump Sum Payment went against Nice Shot, Boss, with Lump Sum Payment singing Ben’s “One Woman” and Nice Shot, Boss singing IU’s “Knees.”  The reigning champion, Bear Paws, said, “I’m nervous because both of these contestants have things that I don’t have. I’m envious of Lump Sum Payment’s clear and clean vocals, while Nice Shot has a depth that I can’t express.”

Lump Sum Payment won Round 3, which meant she would challenge Bear Paws for the crown. Bear Paws sang Jungkey’s “Alone” and successfully defended the crown for the third time in a row with 20 votes to 1. Lump Sum Payment unmasked to reveal herself as former FIESTAR main vocalist Linzy, who is currently active as a musical actress. (FIESTAR disbanded in 2018.)

Linzy said, “I really wanted to come on ‘The King of Mask Singer.’ Every time I did an interview, I would mention this show as the one I wanted to appear on. It’s an honor just to be here.” Before joining FIESTAR, Linzy was a trainee at YG Entertainment. Panelist Sandara Park said, “She was a 2NE1 trainee with us and I feel apologetic toward her. She’s grown so much. It’s been about 12 years since we met, and I feel so sorry.”

Linzy said, “I hope many people will come to watch my musical ‘Jack the Ripper’ and keep an eye out for Linzy’s diverse vocal range and activities.”
