On the latest episode of “The King of Mask Singer,” the identity of “Heavy Metal” was revealed!
During the November 13 broadcast of the MBC singing competition, eight new contestants stepped up to challenge the reigning champion.
In the final match-up of Round 1, “Heavy Metal” went up against “Glass Mental” as they performed an emotional rendition of Park Jin Young and Sunye’s ballad “Farewell Under the Sun.”
After their performance, the panelists tried to figure out both contestants’ identities, with singer Tim guessing that Heavy Metal might be EXO‘s Suho. Explaining that he went to the same gym as Suho, he noted, “They have similar physiques.”
To help the panelists out, dancer Honey J of “Street Woman Fighter” gave them a few big hints in a special pre-recorded video message. After praising Heavy Metal’s dance skills, Honey J revealed that he had always been at the top of his class at the school where she taught—and that he was also a multi-talented artist who had composed numerous songs.
After hearing all this new information, DRIPPIN’s Cha Jun Ho confidently declared that he had a good idea of who Heavy Metal might be. Explaining that he had gone to Hanlim Arts School, where Honey J taught, Cha Jun Ho guessed that Heavy Metal was PENTAGON’s Kino.
Although both Heavy Metal and Glass Metal melted the audience’s hearts with their soulful vocals, Glass Mental ultimately won the round.
Just as Cha Jun Ho had guessed, Heavy Metal turned out to be PENTAGON’s main dancer Kino.
After the episode aired, Kino took to Instagram to share a clip from the show and a selfie that he took in his mask, writing, “I had fun on ‘The King of Mask Singer.’”
