The masks that the singers wear are made by the designerHwang Jae-geun, to hide their real identities. The format for King Of Masked Singer has two sessions.

The winner is chosen by an instant live vote from the audience and celebrity panelists.

The contestants can’t reveal their identity and take off their masks unless they are eliminated or become the new Mask King.

First Battle

TWICE’s Jihyo was a contestant of King Of Masked Singer‘s 35th Generation Mask King and appeared on the Episode 69 broadcast on July 24, 2016. The mask she wore was called “You Hold Me, Little Ghost”.

On her first appearance on stage, Jihyo was already wearing her mask and walked to the stage wearing a red robe with a bodyguard by her side. The panelists who saw her immediately remarked that she was so cute.

Once the contestants were on the stage, Jihyo had a chance to sing a song with her opponent, SEVENTEEN’s DK, performing Dream, a duet song from Suzy and EXO’s Baekhyun. The panelists kept commenting that the two contestants were so cute as they started to sing the song.

Another panelist also commented that Jihyo and SEVENTEEN’s DK’s performance while singing together was so cute.

Oh My Girl’s YooA who was one of the panelists that day, agreed that their voices were really nice, and the other panelist who was sitting next to her agreed.

After Jihyo and DK performed the song together, the legendary MC and Gag Man, Kim Gura, also commented that they sing very well, along with another panelist’s comment saying that they were very pretty.


The panelists were also saying that they should collaborate together to release an album since their voices were really unique and beautiful.
