[NEWS] Popular Idol Group Member Gets Tearful During Performance On “King Of Masked Singer”

A member of one of K-Pop’s most popular idol groups made his first performance after his discharge from the army on this week’s “King of Masked Singer”!


In February 19’s episode of “King of Masked Singer,” contestants Orange Tribe and Gangnam Swallow went head-to-head in the first round with a duet performance of Ulala Session’s “Beautiful Night.”

Gangnam Swallow ended up taking the win, but Orange Tribe was given the chance to sing another of his prepared songs while he was revealing his identity. As he sung JK Kim Dong Wook’s “Foolish Love,” he removed his mask to reveal that he was Super Junior’s Shindong!

Host Kim Sung Joo had Shindong salute the audience as it was his first performance since he finished up his mandatory military service, and Shindong admitted that he got tearful during his performance once he removed his mask.

In his private interview Shindong said, “My voice wasn’t in our first album at all. There were around ten tracks, but it didn’t include my voice at all. Not even the sound of my breathing. So I didn’t even need to be wearing a microphone when we were performing!”

“I think that’s why I got a bit tearful,” he admitted. “When I was singing, people were cheering for me and seemed happy to see me, so things like being better than another singer didn’t seem important.” He went on to explain that it was a great experience because it allowed him to feel like he was a singer.

Watch his performance here!

Luna The Grizzly Loud

Hotline Royal Woods

A violent orchestra of bloodshed. Luna brings death with her knowledge of all things loud which includes everything from Pistols to chainsaws. With SMGs and Assualt  Rifles being her favorites. Luna gains increased range and ammo efficacy while using firearms but Luna loves bringing the ruckus even in the worse of situations. She will never stay silent so stealth is nearly impossible for her and enemies will always know when she’s nearby. 


I just found these guys and Im in love……. such a look. This one is also such a wicked video. I’m the absolute biggest sucker for cool faceless beings and scary masks but also this dancing is lovely.


You guys.
