We’re halfway through the competition and now it’s the time to really go for it! The field of battle is littered with casualties and only the strongest have survived.

The categories are narrowing down to a particularly interesting mix. IU has once again sailed through the preliminary rounds to square off with fellow multi-hyphenate Eunji. Soloists are doing well this year as Max Changmin and Eric Nam are facing off in the male Vocal category.

Our rookie category has come down to a very competitive top four. Brownie boy Felix confronts the Ice Prince Sunghoon while Animal Detective Yena tries to knock Karina off and make it to the next level. Chungha and Seulgi are familiar competitors but Hoshi and Kai have not been pitted against one another before.

CL and Jessi are both juggernauts of rap who have established careers but who will triumph? Woodz faces off against “the one shouting” Changbin in the male Rap category. This is sure to be a thrilling round!
