Group iKON took 6th place, the lowest in ‘Kingdom’.
In the Mnet entertainment program ‘Kingdom: Legendary War’, which aired on the 8th, the face-to-face ranking was revealed.
Earlier, BTOB ranked 3rd, SF9 4th, and ATEEZ 5th, and the rankings of the remaining three teams were announced. Stray Kids and The Boys took 1st and 2nd place, respectively, and iKON was the lowest ranked 6th.
iKON is the sea that ranked first in the expected rankings of the participating teams. The unexpected result was shocked to all the appearing teams, including iKON.
Afterwards, Kim Jin-hwan said in an interview, “I couldn’t see the members’ faces. I tried to pretend to be embarrassed, but the 6th place was a bit of a blow.” On the other hand, Kim Dong-hyuk said, “I honestly didn’t expect it. After the face-to-face ceremony, I had a lot of thoughts. From the first round of the real contest, I thought I had to sharpen the knife and prepare.”
Meanwhile, ‘Kingdom’ is a program in which BTOB, iKON, The Boys, Stray Kids, ATEEZ, and SF9 compete for the throne as a follow-up program of ‘Road to Kingdom’ aired last year. It broadcasts at 7:50 p.m. every Thursday.
