Finale Vocals Performance Sneak Peek
BTOB's Eunkwang, iKON's Donghyuk, SF9's Inseong, THE BOYZ's Hyunjae, Stray Kids' Seungmin, and ATEEZ's Jongho are all set to give their fans a treat by performing a special song A Boy's Diary. The preview of the show released on June 2 shows Eunkwang, Seungmin, and Jongho happy to collaborate for the second time [they had worked together as Team Mayfly's vocal unit members in the third round No Limit]. This time the vocal group is larger as SF9's Inseong, iKON's Donghyuk and The BOYZ's Hyunjae have also joined them.
Eunkwang can be seen suggesting about naming their vocal group and comes up with the name "Kingdom's Voice". Seungmin tweaks it a bit and suggests "King's Voice." As members approve this name, emcee TVXQ's Changmin comes in with snacks and tells, "You guys must have become real close. I've been waiting outside for 20 minutes."
Seungmin replies to Changmin by saying, "It must be tough for you to leave the house these days." Hyunjae and Eunkwang pester Changmin to talk about his married life and ask him, "What is it like, being married?" And "Please tell us, since we're all be married sometime too. I'm also going to get married."
This leads to some confusion as Hyunjae is seen joking, "Exclusive 'Kingdom' reveal: Eunkwang's marriage announcement." Understanding the situation, Eunkwang makes amendments to his previous sentence and says "Someday."
