This show opens a new series of different art competitions that we are having with a large group of celebrities around the world. The contest begins with the Korean form of King of Mask Singer. 12 celebrity performers dressed in fashion to hide identities. On the other hand, the top six famous singers - peacock, hippo, monster, rhino, deer and lion - stand against each other in perfect fashion from head to toe.
In a broadcast landscape rife with reality-competition shows that recycle the same format... The Masked Singer feels less like a straightforward take on the genre-and more like a corner of Weird Twitter brought to life by some unholy Hollywood ritual.
Like the worst and corniest decor you've ever affixed to your refrigerator, it's pretty terrible, but you can't deny that it's magnetic. And unlike a lot of performance shows, it's not vicious. It's easy.
