Minzy surprised everyone by appearing on MBC’s King of Masked Singer as ‘Perilla Leaf Girl’. She competed with ‘Residence of Abundant Excitement’ (said to be phenomenal vocalist, Sohyang) in Round 1 with their rendition of Kim Bum Soo’s “I Miss You”. Unfortunately, Minzy lost in Round 1 with a voting score of 41-58 and performed Ann’s “A Painful And Painful Name” before revealing her face to the surprised audience and celebrity panel.
King of Masked Singer is a music program where celebrities of the entertainment industry go onto the show and perform songs behind masks. The audience and celebrity panel will make guesses on who the celebrities behind the mask are. Round 1 consists of a pair face-off in duets and the one who garners higher votes from the audience advances to Round 2. Round 2 consists of 4 individuals competing with solo performances before the eventual winner becomes the King. The King then competes with the previous King (from the previous episode) to take on the ultimate throne.
