On October 21st, rookie boy group KINGDOM released the music video to their new title track, ‘Black Crown’. This comes along with their 3rd mini album, ‘History of Kingdom: Part III. Ivan’. Debuting in February, the boys are certainly giving fans plenty of music within their first year. The EP continues the story of each of the members. With the two previous mini albums named ‘History of Kingdom’ + member names (Arthur and Chiwoo thus far), the ultimate plan is to release music under each of the 7 members names. Each member represents a king/kingdom from the past or present. This time, we focus on Ivan who is the king of the Snow Kingdom.
The song itself sounds grand. With it’s orchestral instrumental, the members soar in their vocals particularly in the final refrain. This harmonises to create a full spell-binding listening experience.
Check out the music video down below!
KINGDOM ‘BLACK CROWN’ MV:
Much like the previous music videos, the GF Entertainment group show spectacular backdrops unique to them. In the midst of a snowstorm, we see remnants of an eroded castle. With someone sitting on the abandoned throne wearing a black crown, lifting seemingly causes magical spirits to escape. Throughout the MV, we see the septet in dashing white coats, then contrast to black leather and loud cutout, comparatively sinister outfits. Embracing the choreography, the two groups meet and fight against themselves. In a battle between good and evil, whilst it seems the good are stangled and defeated, we see the king in white wearing the black crown.
At the end of the MV, we see snippets of a Korean-centric comeback in the future. Wearing a traditional Hanbok, soldiers on horseback ride towards a dark palace. We see one arrow shot before the video reveals the group name written in a calligraphy style. This pairs with a blood stain in the bottom corner.
KINGDOM‘s 3rd mini album, ‘History of Kingdom Part III. Ivan’, featuring the title track, ‘Black Crown’ is available now!
