Mnet‘s Kingdom aired its first full show on April 1, and fans from across the world tuned in to see six groups battle it out for supremacy. This week, it showed the teams’ meeting and the full versions of their 100-second performances.
As always, social media was alive during the show. Here is a look at some of the best reactions from the first episode!
1. As the show’s youngest group, it looks like ATEEZ is grabbing people’s attention!
It boys ATEEZ already taking over Kingdom!!
"Who is the blonde"
"Who is the pink haired"
"Who just exposed his own chest"
