Boy band Kingdom talked about its sixth EP, History of Kingdom: Part XI. Mujin, which came out on Thursday through its agency, GF Entertainment.
The seven-track EP continues its narrative, telling how Mujin, as the prince of a ruined country on the run, encounters people harassed by monsters, builds a kingdom of cherry blossoms with them and sacrifices himself to seal the evil spirit.
There have been voices, however, that the concept and images of the new EP lean too heavily on Japanese culture. The band’s eight-part series contains different cultures and perspectives, and it has already put out five that evoke cultures of other countries, explained the agency.
“We are a team that was launched with a perspective that reinterprets all cultures with K-pop,” said Dan adding that the concept is limited to this album only and they are adding their own identities to the different cultures expressed in each album. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
