BTOB has reportedly rejected Mnet‘s offer to join the lineup of Kingdom.
According to an exclusive report from Sports Kyunghyang, BTOB was cast as one of the groups to appear on Mnet’s Kingdom, but ultimately rejected the offer. Kingdom production team members casted BTOB due to their impressive performances and singing ability, but it was reported that BTOB rejected as there were issues such as scheduling conflicts that would not permit them to join the cast.
In response to the report, Cube Entertainment has stated that while BTOB has received the offer, they are still considering the option.
It’s true we have received the offer to appear on Kingdom, and we are still discussing it internally.
