The December 19th episode of KBS’s “Immortal Songs” was the first part of a “King of Kings” special. ATEEZ had previously taken home the final win on Kim Jong Kook x Turbo’s special “Immortal Songs” with their spin on “Black Cat”, which they later recreated for Halloween with Kim Jong Kook.
In their performance of “Hayeoga” by Seo Taiji and Boys, ATEEZ recreated the styles of the era and not only emphasized the original choreography, but also included the choreography of their own debut track “Pirate King” in the dance break. On the original hip-hop and Gukak (traditional music) Fusion of the original track, ATEEZ added a rock band spin with electric guitar to create a distinctive high octane ATEEZ performance. Later in the performance a live Taepyeongso (traditional wind instrument) and kwaenggari (traditional gong) have also been added.
ATEEZ was third in that episode and won the round against Min Woo Hyuk. They later lost to Na Tae Joo’s rendition of Jo Sung Mo’s “Promise” and the final victory in the episode was won by the Yook Joong Wan Band.
