Watch: Former Girl Group Member Debuting As Soloist Shows Off Her Vocals On

On the latest episode of “The King of Mask Singer,” the identity of “Autumn Picnic” was revealed!

During the October 16 broadcast of the MBC singing competition, four contestants continued their quest to challenge the reigning champion for her throne.


In the first match-up of Round 2, Autumn Picnic performed a soulful rendition of Primary’s famous hit “Seethru.”

After watching her performance, the panelists attempted to figure out who Autumn Picnic might be. Producer Ryan Jhun confidently guessed that she was Oh My Girl‘s Arin, but host Kim Sung Joo attempted to steer the panel back in the right direction with a hint about Autumn Picnic having a younger sibling.

Upon hearing the MC’s hint, Kim Won Joon did some frantic searching on his phone before exclaiming, “I’ve found her! IZ*ONE‘s Lee Chae Yeon!”

Autumn Picnic’s opponent ultimately won the round, leaving her behind to take off her mask and reveal her identity—and sure enough, she turned out to be Lee Chae Yeon.

When host Kim Sung Joo asked her how she felt about Ryan Jhun not recognizing her, Lee Chae Yeon replied with a laugh, “Actually, he produced almost all of the songs on my new [solo debut] album.” Ryan Jhun sheepishly agreed that he should have recognized her, noting, “Even up until 3:30 p.m. today, I was monitoring [her tracks].”

Lee Chae Yeon went on to explain why she had chosen to appear on the show ahead of her solo debut with “HUSH RUSH.”

“Because my image is strongly linked to dance, I think there are a lot of people who are curious about how I’d sing,” she remarked. “I’ll work hard to show you lots of new charms and different sides of myself through my solo debut. Although I’m still lacking in many ways, I’ll try to become a singer who can be a gift [to her fans].”
