The identity of 'Mask King
' contestant 'All-Terrain Vehicle
' was revealed this week!
On the September 9 episode of the MBC
variety program, 'All-Terrain Vehicle' went head-to-head with 'Siren
' for a second round, with 'Siren' receiving more votes and therefore advancing further in the competition.
Having lost, 'All-Terrain Vehicle' has no choice but to reveal his identity, taking his mask off to show the audience that he was none other than iKON
member Kim Jin Hwan
. The singer is the third iKON member to appear as a contestant on the show, following rapper Bobby and fellow vocalist Koo Jun Hoe.

When asked about what kind of advice the other members had given him, Jin Hwan revealed that Jun Hoe had told him having to hide behind a mask and not reveal his identity would make him feel lonely and alone, and that Jun Hoe had actually even cried.
"However, I was fine. Because the mask was there, I gained confidence," he explained.
He also expressed that one of the reasons he wanted to appear on the show was so he could become more familiar with being on stage alone in the event that he is able to put out a solo album someday.
"I'm still not used to standing on stage alone, so I was worried, but when I took off my mask, the warm reception I felt was cathartic," he commented.
