ATEEZ is currently participating in Mnet‘s Kingdom and, like the other groups involved, will be releasing a new song on May 28.
Ahead of the song’s release, KQ Entertainment posted on the group’s Fancafe, revealing details of the track called “The Real.” Although he won’t participate in the performance, it explained that member Mingi participated in the song.
The new song ‘The Real,’ which will be unveiled in the final round, is a song that has been recorded before member Mingi’s suspension of activities.
