After The Boyz won Road To Kingdom back in June of last year, Mnet has been working to confirm a lineup for Kingdom, and that lineup is now reportedly set at six groups: The Boyz, iKON, BTOB, SF9, Stray Kids, and ATEEZ. TVXQ will reportedly be hosting the show, which seems appropriate.
That’s a nice collection of boy groups there, mixing up popular veteran groups looking to bounce back after some difficulties and up-and-comers looking to impress a new audience. It’s also not much, if at all, better than Queendom’s lineup, which is sorta surprising considering the boost some groups got from that. Things would’ve been a lot more interesting with Monsta X in the mix, but that unfortunately fell through.
Kingdom is reportedly going to air in April. And hopefully we get Road To Queendom or something after and not just Mnet worshipping penis over and over.
