Queendom 2 has awarded the crown yesterday!
After Hyolyn, Viviz, Brave Girls, WJSN, Loona and Kep1er presented a series of stunning performances over two months in the music competition Queendom, there is finally a winner!
In three rounds, the 6 teams sang both covers and original songs, and even teamed up with their competitors for unit performances in between. (You can watch these and other performances on Youtube.)
Yesterday, June 2, the fourth and final round was broadcast live. There, all the contestants performed their brand new song previously released on Spotify!
Hyolyn - who some may remember from her time in the girl group Sistar - opened the show with a truly royal performance to her new song "Waka Boom (My Way) (feat. Lee Young Ji)":
WJSN then danced in the moonlight to "AURA":
Third up was Kep1er, the youngest group in the competition. Fans had to worry about Main Vocal Chaehyun beforehand, because just a few hours before the finals, the singer had to go to the hospital. There she was treated for sudden health problems caused by increased stress. However, Chaehyun was then present in the finals and confidently delivered a great performance to "THE GIRLS (Can't turn me down)" with the other members:
The girl group's two agencies - Swing Entertainment and WAKEONE - announced that Chaehyun will cancel all other activities except for the Queendom finale for the time being in order to recover. We wish her a speedy recovery!
Viviz (formerly GFriend) kicked off the second half of the live show. The trio put on an enchanting performance to their new song "Red Sun!" with Alice in Wonderland setting:
Just before the end, LOONA took the stage and charismatically showed off "Pose":
Brave Girls, the winners of the third round, closed the show! They had a beach party with the audience to their new song "Whistle":
After all the teams showed what they could do, it was a matter of waiting and trembling while the votes came in and were counted afterwards. In the end, Girl's Generation's Taeyeon, the host of Queendom 2, announced who won the crown: WJSN!
The girl group held on to 2nd place for most of the previous rounds and finally caught up with the competition! A great success for the girl group that debuted in 2016 and said about themselves at the beginning of the show that they are still average and don't have many hit songs. With this, WJSN won a special comeback show from the channel Mnet, which they can create themselves. So now it's time to wait for the girl group to announce a new album!
The full ranking looks like this:
6. Brave Girls
Each group was able to show what they are made of during Queendom and we can't wait to hear more from them!
Kep1er has already announced a comeback!
The rookie girl group, which debuted with the album "First Impact" on January 3, has already confirmed on May 27 that they are preparing for their first comeback in June. A few hours ago, a mood image was uploaded on the group's official Twitter account, showing a colorful summer cocktail and revealing more details: The new album is called "Doublast" and will be released on June 20!
Accompanying the tweet are the words: "A NEW BLAST is coming. What BLAST will it be?" A hint at the title of the new song? The mood image suggests that we can look forward to a happy summer song. That would be something very different from what the girl group has shown us so far! We hope that there will be more details soon. After all, we don't have to wait much longer, since the comeback is already less than three weeks away!
Today Loona also released a mysterious trailer on Youtube:
I wonder what "The Journey" is all about? We're sure to find out soon!
