get to know the group in honor of their debut

So here’s a kpop confesion: as a general rule, I don’t like lore. There are some exceptions to the rule, but for the most part, I find it hard to get into. That said, I love a good kpop thematic concept. Dreamcatcher has a great one, and I got to say predebut group Kingdom does, too. Each member is meant to represent a different king from history.

Over the last couple of months, the group has released a number of really impressive trailers for their MV. While I eagerly await its release, I thought I’d take a moment to introduce the group.
