Mnet has officially unveiled the initial roster for their new show “Queendom Puzzle,” sparking lively discussions amongst internet users. Spanning from industry veterans to novice idols, the talent on display is formidable.
The South Korean television network is no stranger to reality programming, having previously produced shows like “Kingdom,” “Queendom,” “Boys Planet,” and “Girls Planet 999.”
Yet, “Queendom Puzzle” offers a fresh spin on the reality competition format.
As opposed to primarily focusing on groups, the new show will spotlight individual girl group members striving to form an exceptional unit group.
