The identity of Melon was revealed on MBCs King of Masked Singer on July 16 as a member from a popular boy group who is successfully added to his career ias an actor.
During the second round of the show, Melon battled against Baby Seahorse and sang Park Joong Hoons Rain and You in an emotional and heartfelt voice.
About Melons performance, celebrity panel Yoo Young Suk complimented, I want to sign with him. I really love his voice.
Although the two contestants both showed impressive stages, the winner of the face off between Melon and Baby Seahorse was revealed to be Baby Seahorse, who scored 68 votes, surpassing Melons 31 votes.
After showing off his charm on stage with his dance moves and funny impressions of others, the identity of Melon was revealed to be none other than 2PMs Junho.
When Junhos identity was revealed, celebrity panel Danny Ahn remarked, I knew it was him. I was certain when I heard the half-air, half-sound rhythm and saw his dance.
Junho shared, The audience didnt recognize me, and explained, I didnt do many solo activities while I was in 2PM. Five years ago, I shot the film Cold Eyes for the first time, and after touring in Japan, I started to do more [solo activities].
The singer also expressed that he had a valuable experience in King of Masked Singer, saying, Rather than being upset, I think I did a good job appearing on the show. Going on stage wasnt scary, but it took confidence for me to sing someone elses song.
Lastly, he added, I dont think I can forget the reaction of the audience. It was stimulating.
On Twitter, 2PMs official account posted Junhos photos as Melon and wrote, The sweet voice that couldnt be covered under a mask! Melons identity was 2PMs Junho. Please continue to give love to Junhos lovely voice.
