Mnet is all set to launch the official first season of ‘Kingdom’ following the incredible success of ‘Queendom’ and a preliminary season of ‘Road to Kingdom’. In ‘Road to Kingdom’, seven boy groups competed through an intense series of challenges for a chance to participate in ‘Kingdom’. Monster rookies ‘The Boyz’ emerged victorious, cementing their position in the lineup for ‘Kingdom’.

Mnet Kingdom was premiere on April 1 with a stunning lineup of artists. So far, ATEEZ, STRAY KIDS, THE BOYZ and iKON have been confirmed and a lot more amazing boy groups have been offered a place in the lineup. This includes SF9, BTOB and MONSTA X. While MONSTA X has turned down the offer, SF9 and BTOB are currently reviewing the offer and no official statement has been released yet.

The show will be hosted by the two charming members of TVXQ – U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin! This is setting high expectations for the show as fans cannot help but anticipate great things whenever TVXQ is involved.

Following the format of ‘Queendom’, Mnet Kingdom will most likely also have a series of challenges where the groups have to perform re-arranged versions of their own hit songs, cover their senior group’s songs as well as make and produce new songs for the show. Besides these, their performance evaluation will also take into account the popularity of their comeback singles. Expect competition fiercer than ever before because there’s going to be adrenaline, compromises, heart-wrenching eliminations and the biggest title on the line. After all, only 1 can be the King.

With such an amazing potential lineup of artists, Mnet Kingdom is sure to be one of the most anticipated idol survival reality show of the year.
