Kingdom: Legendary War (hereinafter referred to as Kingdom) wrote its first legends of the six teams.
Mnet’s Kingdom aired the rest of the Round 1 performances on the 15th. Under the theme of “To the world,” six boy groups officially threw their hats into the ring. And by the end, the show announced the interim result, raising the tension.
Following THE BOYZ, iKON, and BTOB last week, Stray Kids, ATEEZ, and SF9 took the stage this week.
“自神” – Stray Kids
First, after much consideration, Stray Kids took the stage with “Side Effects” and “God’s Menu.” As Felix said, the group added the story to their performance with the idea, “When we flip the word EVIL, it becomes LIVE.”
“Symphony No.9, From The Wonderland” – ATEEZ
Secondly, ATEEZ added Dvorak’s “From The New World” to their song “WONDERLAND,” perfecting one grand stage. Their choice to add bone-breaking dance highlighted the intensity, and Jongho’s 4-levels pitches have certainly wowed everyone.
“Jealous” – SF9
Lastly, SF9 got on the stage last to perform “Now or Never.” Under the theme of indulgence in beauty, SF9 expressed the concept of taking someone else’s beauty in combative and colorful images.
Immediately after performances, the results of group evaluation and experts evaluations came up. And this was the interim ranking: ATEEZ ranked 1st with 2944.444 points; Stray Kids ranked 2nd with 2444.444; THE BOYZ ranked 3rd with 1833.333 points; BTOB ranked 4th with 1444.444; iKON ranked 5th with 888.889; SF9 ranked 6th with 444.444 points.
However, this ranking is not set in stone. In other words, additional 10,000 points will be distributed according to viewers’ global evaluations and the number of views. If you are a fan, you can also vote for your top three teams through Whos’ Fan application until the 18th at 11:59 PM KST.
