Kingdom: Legendary War is a reality programme which currently airs on Mnet. The show stars six trending boy groups as they compete in a series of performance challenges. The participating groups are: BtoB, iKON, SF9, The Boyz, Stray Kids and ATEEZ.
The show recently faced a COVID-19 scare after a backup dancer tested positive for the virus. All participating artists have since tested negative for COVID-19. However, members of iKON, SF9 and The Boyz who had come into close contact with the dancer during performances reportedly entered two weeks of self-quarantine following the news.
