The debut date of the highly anticipated competition reality show, Kingdom, is fast approaching, set to air on April 1. The show, which is to be hosted by Changmin and U-Know of TVXQ, will have six different K-Pop boy groups compete against each other in performance: ATEEZ, BTOB, iKON, SF9, Stray Kids, and The Boyz.
A global broadcast was aired via live stream on February 23, which consisted of 100-second introduction performances for each of the participating groups.

The 9 members of SF9 performed to “Good Guy (The Glory I)”, which is based off of their popular single “Good Guy”.
