[MHN Jung Halim reporter] New boy group Kingdom have debuted with their first album "History Of Kingdom : Part1. Arthur" on February 18th.
GF Entertainment stated that the group's good points are that they have a tight worldview with music that could back them up, and that they will show their unique musical styles going forward.
As could be gleamed from the group name, the world that Kingdom built has each of the members be kings of their own countries. They will all go through their own individual stories, which will then combine into one giant narrative that will be as if one is currently watching a fantasy film.
The lead single "EXCALIBUR" builds onto this concept. It is a dance track that based on a future bass, and contains Kingdom's scream towards the unforgiving world as they take on the weight of the crown.
Kingdom introduced the single as having Kingom's style all over its instrumentation and chorus, and that they thought of what they could show as kings when planning the performance.
The album also contains the orchestral "Intro : Majestic Departure", "Picasso" which compares the painter to the one they love, the desperate pop ballad "Night Air", and the dance song "X" which compares a meeting with a crossroad.
Kingdom, who have picked BTS as their role models, have stated that they wanted to be known as "King of Kings", "the team that leads the 4th generation of idols", and that they will create an atmosphere that everyone will acknowledge.
