Followed by MBC August 16The king of mask singers“A group of contestants challenged Madame Rose as she attempted her fifth straight win.
The first match in Round 2 was between Diver and Virgin Ghost.
Diver sang Younha’s “Waiting” and impressed the panelists with her clear and emotional singing tone and the details in her performance. Virgin Ghost sang Park Jin Young’s “Eum Eum Eum” and got panelists to join in the fun and exciting performance.
In the end, Virgin Ghost got more votes to advance to the third round, and Diver exposed himself to reveal himself as a former T-ara member Soyeon.
Soyeon said to Kim Gura, “I thought he would recognize me. I went on “Radio Star” when I first debuted with T-ara and he said my voice had Han [a unique Korean word meaning sorrow, regret, or deep emotion] inside. “
SeeYa’s Lee Boram, who had been in the same agency as T-ara, had guessed her identity before the exposure. “I was watching her before she made her debut,” she said. “I thought that this voice could only belong to that person. I was curious because I hadn’t heard from her in a while. I am grateful that she had the courage to come on this show. It is a welcome relief to see them. “
Soyeon said the gig was particularly significant as the next day (at the time of recording) it was T-ara’s anniversary. She said, “The fans said they want me to make a comeback through ‘The King of Mask Singer’. I thought if I started my solo career I would do it through The King of Mask Singer. But I was so nervous. “
In 2017, Boram and Soyeon decided not to renew their contracts with MBK Entertainment. Soyeon recently signed a new agency in July. The other members of T-ara extended a few more months before leaving the agency. Since then, every member has been active as a solo artist, but they have said in the past that they will not disband.
