What is the premise of Road to Kingdom?

Road to Kingdom first premiered in 2020 as an idol survival programme, where seven boyband “with potential but mostly unknown to many” competed for the top spot, which would guarantee them an advancement to another survival programme, Kingdom. The first season starred PENTAGON, ONF, Golden ChildTHE BOYZ, VERIVERY, ONEUS and TOO, with THE BOYZ winning the top spot and advancing to Kingdom.

For its upcoming second season, Mnet announced a major rebranding to the show in early June. Road To Kingdom will now operate as an independent show instead of a prequel to Kingdom, with the aim of spotlighting rising boyband and introducing new benefits for the winning team. Specifics about the show’s new mechanics have yet to be revealed.

Who will star in the new season?

On July 10, Mnet announced the official line-up for Road To Kingdom’s upcoming season. The show will star The New Six, CRAVITY, TheCrewOne (previously two separate groups: ATBO and JustB), 8TURN, ONEUS, YOUNITE and TEMPEST. ONEUS is notably the only group from the show’s first season to return, per Soompi.

Other information such as hosts, guest performers or mentors have yet to be unveiled by Mnet, but are expected in the coming months leading up to the show’s premiere.

Is there a trailer for Road To Kingdom?

Mnet has yet to release any trailers for the show.

How do I watch Road To Kingdom?
