Insider claims Mnet's 'Kingdom' will be split into a main version and a rookie version


According to an exclusive report on February 13, Mnet is currently drawing up detailed plans for a follow-up survival series to its girl group survival program 'Queendom'. 

Earlier today, a representative from Mnet gave a curt response regarding rumors of 'Queendom' season 2. However, now, a new exclusive report has delved into more specific details regarding a follow-up series known as 'Kingdom', involving boy groups rather than girl groups.

One insider alleged, "They are currently planning two different versions of 'Queendom' season 2 with male idol groups, 'Kingdom' and 'Road To Kingdom'." The insider added on that 'Kingdom' will be a survival involving well-known, popular boy group contestants, while the contestants of 'Road To Kingdom' will be groups who have yet to win a #1 trophy on major broadcasting stations, but are on the rise due to their talents.

Mnet is currently discussing factors such as filming scheduling, broadcast time slot, etc.

I agree that it's a good idea to split the senior groups and rookie groups because I remember how embarrassing it was for Bom, AOA, and Lovelyz everytime (G)I-DLE was ranked higher than them. However, I hope they have better criteria than music show wins. As unfair as it seems, I think we've all seen talented groups go their entire careers without a win while lots of rookies win all the time. Dreamcatcher, Weki Meki, Gugudan, and April haven't won, and Hello Venus, 9muses, and Dalshabet disbanded without any wins. It doesn't mean they're less talented than the groups with a win.

I hope groups like Stray Kids and Ateez take the opportunity. It would be a great way to gather a Korean fan base.
