Watch: Member Of Popular 3rd-Gen Girl Group Talks About Changes In Idol Trends On

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

During the February 18 broadcast of the MBC singing competition, four contestants advanced to the next round in their quest to challenge the reigning champion for the throne.

In the first match-up of Round 2, Fortune Pouch showed off her duality with a charming cover of Heize’s hit song “Don’t Know You.”


After watching her performance, the celebrity panelists praised Fortune Pouch for her sweet vocal tone, along with the contrast between her angelic singing and her stylish rapping.

However, despite charming the crowd with her voice, Fortune Pouch ultimately lost the round to her opponent—and when she took off her mask to reveal her identity, she turned out to be AOA’s Dohwa (formerly known as Chanmi).

As Dohwa has recently been focusing on her acting career, host Kim Sung Joo asked her about the difference between promoting as a singer versus as an actor.

Dohwa candidly replied with a laugh, “The biggest difference I feel these days is that I’m experiencing the feeling of rejection a lot. When I promoted as a singer, my schedule was determined through meetings. But now that I’m auditioning for roles, I get rejected way more often than I get the part, so I’m getting used to being rejected all the time, and I think I’m in the process of learning how to handle that emotionally.”

Kim Sung Joo then asked her about appearing on “Queendom Puzzle” last year, and Dohwa shared that she had felt a slight generation gap between her and the younger girl group members.

“It’s been 12 years since I debuted, and back in my day, we wore a lot of custom-made outfits,” explained Dohwa. “But nowadays, it’s much more common for idols to wear outfits that have been bought and then customized. The hair and makeup trends have changed a lot too. When I promoted, we used a lot of false lashes and heavy makeup, but idols these days have a cleaner, more doll-like look for their makeup.”
