MBC’s ‘King of Masked Singer’ is one of the most popular music competition shows in South Korea. Here, the contestants will wear different masks to hide their true faces. They will then perform various songs and only when eliminated will their masks be taken off to reveal their identities. This is often considered the best place for idols to prove their talents, as well as for the public to appreciate the singing ability of idols. Therefore, to join the show, the K-Pop idols must possess good vocals and stable live performance skills.
