Leader Of Newly Debuted Girl Group Shows Her Talent On “The King Of Mask Singer”
On the December 5 episode of MBC’s “The King of Mask Singer,” four contestants continued their quest to dethrone the reigning champion, Bear Paw.
The first match-up of Round 2 was between “Olivia Hussey” and “Fish Cake Soup.” Olivia Hussey sang Crush’s “NAPPA” and showed off her alternately soft and sharp vocal as well as a dreamlike vibe. Fish Cake Soup sang Songolmae’s “The Moment I Saw You” and won the round with 17 votes to 4.
Olivia Hussey then umasked to reveal herself as An Yu Jin, former IZ*ONE member and leader of Starship Entertainment’s new girl group IVE. An Yu Jin said that her goal for appearing on ‘The King of Mask Singer’ was to put IVE’s name out there. She said, “I’m still a fresh rookie in her fifth day since her debut. I ask for everyone’s love and support and hope that people will remember IVE’s An Yu Jin and IVE.”
An Yu Jin also talked about turning 20 (Korean age) soon. She said, “There are some regrets about the end of my teens, but I’m also excited to face my 20s. I’m the leader of IVE. I want to show a mature side of me as the leader and work hard with my members to promote.”
IVE made their debut on December 1 with “ELEVEN.” The group has six members, including IZ*ONE members Jang Won Young and An Yu Jin.
In Round 1, An Yu Jin sang Park Hye Kyung’s “Hello” against “Beyoncé.”
