ATEEZ used everything in their power to convince Kim Jong Kook to sing a collaboration song with them.
THE MAN of ATEEZ is a new reality show that captures the process of ATEEZ and Kim Jong Kook teaming up for a new collaboration song, “Wanna Go to the Sea? (literal title)” for their Season Songs album. And the reality show will present a variety of fun, from their jolly chemistry to their recording session.
In particular, ATEEZ prepared a presentation to convince Kim, who has already dominated the K-pop scene once and is now making impressive records on YouTube, to collaborate with them.
In the first meeting, ATEEZ appealed to Kim with the fact that they won the Turbo episode of Immortal Songs: Singing the Legend with “Black Cat Nero.” They even mentioned that Mingi dreamt of becoming a singer because of Kim’s hit song “Loveable” and surprised the singer.
In addition to this, ATEEZ started listing out everything they have in common with Kim. They started off by saying, “Jongho was born exactly 4 years after Turbo won the first trophy.” And added, “Kim Jong Kook and Jongho were both born in the year of the dragon and are both the main vocalists. Moreover, they love playing soccer.” “Kim Jong Kook and ATEEZ both debuted at an average age of 20.” “Kim Jong Kook and Hongjoong are both from Anyang.”
First smiling at the adorable members, Kim soon was convinced by the members. Soon, ATEEZ and Kim showcased adorable chemistry while preparing for their collaboration song.
THE MAN of ATEEZ director Ahn Hyun Jin shared, “ATEEZ is thrilled to collaborate with Kim Jong Kook, a singer they all admire. So they worked on this project with all their hearts. Please look forward to ATEEZ’s vibrant energy and their refreshing summer chemistry with Kim Jong Kook.”
The show is planned and produced by 1theK. The episodes will be pre-released on Kakato TV at 1 7 PM KST every Wednesday starting from the 11th. You can also enjoy the episodes on the “1theK Originals” YouTube channel on Mondays.
