All the teams are extremely gifted in a number of methods, however every additionally has its personal distinctive charms. To get to know the teams higher and study what we will count on from them on “Kingdom,” we’ve pulled collectively a listing of two performances from every that showcase a main energy of every group. Take a look at these performances, so as of group seniority, and put together to be amazed!(*12*)

BTOB: Emotion

Legend has it that Eunkwang as soon as stated about BTOB, “we don’t promote albums, we promote feelings,” and no phrases have rung more true about this group. With such unbelievable vocal expertise, BTOB excels at ballads and music that highlights their voices, just like the vocal line’s efficiency of “To My Love” beneath. Whereas solely half of the vocal line members are competing on “Kingdom,” everyone knows that each member of BTOB is a vocalist at coronary heart!(*12*)


Ballads apart, BTOB excels at many feelings, and they’re additionally identified for being a gaggle stuffed with goofballs — we dare you to observe this BTOB 4U efficiency of “Show Your Love” with out smiling. From Eunkwang yelling “blissful birthday Minhyuk” originally to all of them shouting at random and having enjoyable on the finish, this can be a group that additionally has the flexibility to carry us a lot laughter!(*12*)


iKON: Energy

Clearly iKON is thought for being stuffed with swag, and the group’s hip hop aptitude provides it not solely a distinctive sound, but in addition an unmistakable perspective. iKON is a strong pressure to be reckoned with on stage, as is evident from this 2017 efficiency of their hit “BLING BLING”:(*12*)


Far much less appreciated is iKON’s prowess as vocalists, and if you happen to’ve by no means heard the group carry out a vocal-focused monitor, I extremely advocate this efficiency of the Japanese model of their b-side “Simply Go.” This highly effective stage could have you falling for each single member’s voice! It’s protected to say that we hope to see either side of iKON on “Kingdom.”(*12*)


SF9: Charisma

Whereas we wouldn’t be stunned if 90 % of the “Kingdom” commentary about SF9 revolves round how tall and good-looking they’re, there’s extra to this group than lengthy legs and fairly faces! SF9 manages to have overflowing charisma and confidence in each stage, making their performances downright fascinating. This enables them to drag off harder-hitting songs like “RPM” (and we love the dance intro to this efficiency!):(*12*)


We can also’t neglect their sexier songs like their 2019 launch “Sufficient.” From their smoldering facial expressions to their effortlessly suave choreo, this efficiency of “Sufficient” makes it clear that SF9 can exude charisma in each sense of the phrase.(*12*)


THE BOYZ: Creativity

It solely appears proper to incorporate two of THE BOYZ’s performances from “Street to Kingdom” final yr, given the group’s many beautiful performances on the present. THE BOYZ honed their creativity for some actually unbelievable phases ranging from day one: whereas their later performances could have been bigger in scale, “Sword of Victory” is 90 seconds of mesmerizing perfection, focusing on the uniquely acrobatic choreos that in the end helped win the group the crown.(*12*)


However THE BOYZ additionally proved their versatility in their collaboration with ONEUS for what was arguably probably the most underrated “Street to Kingdom” stage. Their cowl of Sunmi’s “Heroine” not solely shone a highlight on THE BOYZ’s vocals and appearing expertise, but in addition represented a touchingly emotional portrayal of the trials and rewards of idol life.(*12*)


Stray Youngsters: Warmth

Warmth, lit-ness, hype — no matter you need to name it, Stray Youngsters brings it with their explosive choreographies and power. This group has nothing however bangers in its repertoire and an depth that makes each efficiency partaking from begin to end. Nowhere is that this clearer than this 2020 efficiency of “MIROH,” by which the fellows carry out in a driving rainstorm that by some means provides them much more savage power:(*12*)


We additionally know that Stray Youngsters will take their hype to the following stage in “Kingdom,” if their previous phases are something to go by. The hypnotically lit knife-wielding intro on the 2020 SBS Gayo Daejeon prefaced one other superior efficiency of their current hit “God’s Menu,” and it’s this type of creativity that we guess we’ll see extra of on “Kingdom”!(*12*)


ATEEZ: Stage presence

ATEEZ is a gaggle stuffed with performers, and never simply when it comes to their highly effective music and intense choreographies: once they’re onstage, there’s not a second these boys aren’t performing with their faces — because the beneath stage of “HALA HALA” can attest to. The range and subtlety of their expressions is past spectacular, and even for a track that’s hard-hitting by way of and thru, the members handle to discover a entire vary of expressions to indicate, that includes every kind of smiles and sneers, seems of shock and appears that shock.(*12*)


The group’s swag and confidence is solely heightened in the way in which they effortlessly pull off explosive choreos, like on this dance efficiency from KCON 2019 LA. You wouldn’t imagine that ATEEZ is the youngest group on “Kingdom”!(*12*)
