Watch: “Queendom 2” Highlights Intense Dance Unit Battle + Announces Round 3 Results
“Queendom 2” has wrapped up and announced the final rankings for their heated position battle!
On the May 12 episode of Mnet’s “Queendom 2,” the dance units closed out the second half of Round 3 and the final results for both competitions were revealed.
Last week, the vocal units gave mesmerizing performances of songs by EXO, IU, and BOL4. Among these units, WJSN’s Yeonjung, Soobin, and VIVIZ’s Eunha (Universe in Eunha) took first place, followed by Hyolyn and Brave Girls’ Minyoung (33). In third place was team Sun and Moon, which included LOONA’s Kim Lip, Chuu, Jinsol, and Haseul with Kep1er’s Seo Young Eun and Kim Chae Hyun.
Before the dance units performed, each team’s preparation processes were shown. For VIVIZ and Kep1er’s “Purr” performance, they practiced in front of their choreographer Honey J, the leader of dance crew HolyBang. She told the group, “It’s better than what I worried about. However, it feels like you worked harder on your individual choreography than the [overall] mood.”
The second performers were WJSN’s Eunseo and Yeoreum with Hyolyn as the unit Ex-it. For their “KA-BOOM” performance, Hyolyn commented, “My goal is to receive the response, ‘Yeoreum and Eunseo…they’re WJSN?'”
To evaluate their progress, Ex-it’s choreographers LaChica visited their practice room. Gabee commented, “Eunseo and Yeoreum have to be more powerful. Your lines are pretty but it’s important to ruin that.” Regarding her unusual critique, Gabee added with a laugh, “We’re making these fairies do weird things.”
The final dance unit was LOONA’s Olivia Hye, Heejin, Yves, Choerry, and Brave Girls’ Eunji, who won the midterm evaluation. Before their practice with choreographer Monika, the girls expressed nerves with Yves recalling their last meeting saying, “It was the first time taking a class where I only got in trouble.”
Despite their worries, Monika proudly told them, “Well done. You practiced a lot.” She continued, “It feels like you’ve worked hard but you haven’t yet broken through that thin wall.”
Watch the dance unit performances below!
KEVIZ (Kep1er’s Xiaoting, Hikaru, Kim Da Yeon + VIVIZ’s Umji, SinB) – “Purr”
Ex-it (Hyolyn + WJSN’s Eunseo, Yeoreum) – “KA-BOOM”
Queen-I-Na (Brave Girls’ Eunji + LOONA’s Heejin, Yves, Choerry, Olivia Hye) – “Tam-I-Na”
Following all the dance unit stages, the final votes were announced. In third place was KEVIZ, meaning Kep1er placed third in both unit battles. Placing second was Ex-it, with Queen-I-Na winning first. With this dance unit taking the crown, both Brave Girls and LOONA scored their first win on “Queendom 2.” Since Minyoung also took second in the vocal battle, Brave Girls were awarded 4000 points (1500 for second place and 2500 for first place), their highest score jump throughout the competition.
“Queendom 2” airs on Thursdays at 9:20 p.m. KST and is available for live global streaming on Mnet’s YouTube channel.
