SNUPER’s Sangil on King of Mask Singer
In July 2018, SNUPER’s Sangil appeared on King of Masked Singer as a contestant in costume as Eardrum Boyfriend. In this episode, he became the rival of My Ear’s Candy Honey Voice in the first round, and they both sang a duet of Lee Hi’s “1, 2, 3, 4.” The initial appearance of the two contestants with female and male voices became a very sweet duet as the opening.
Unfortunately, Eardrum Boyfriend lost when the voting was given by the panelists and the audience. He sang Rain’s “How to Avoid the Sun” as his last performance when revealing his mask.

SNUPER’s Sangil’s Appearance on The Unit and Mr. Trot
SNUPER’s members Sangil, Sebin, Suhyun, and Woosung participated as contestants on The Unit. On November 3, 2017, SNUPER’s members held their first appearance together on The Unit before they were separated into different groups. During this episode, SNUPER’s Sangil received 2 boots.
In episode 4, Sangil was ranked at 37th place. In episode 5, Sangil was ranked at 40th place. In episode 7, Sangil was ranked at 39th place. In episode 8, Sangil was ranked at 35th place. But, unfortunately, his journey needed to end in episode 10 at 33rd place.
During Uni+ B evaluation, Sangil was added to Black Team with A.C.E’s Jun (center and leader), Chan, PK, Rayoon, Jin, Taeeun, Jungsang, and Im Junhyeok. They received 2nd place in this episode. In episode 6, Sangil was added to another team with Seyong, Jungha, Euijin, Sebin, Casper, Hyukjin, Gunwoo, and Seongho in Green Team. They got 4th place in this episode with a total of 1,199 votes, and Sangil got 145 votes for his individual votes.
As you can see from the performance above, every contestant on the Green Team presented the best on stage even though there was one member, which was Seyong, who noticed that he was sick in the middle of this performance that was held on December 2, 2017.
SNUPER’s Sangil drew attention with his unwillingness to give up. On December 16, 2017, KBS 2TV’s Idol Rebooting Project The Unit showed the participants’ self-producing mission stages.
On this day, Sangil, who was in the vocal Green Team, struggled in a team with talented vocalists such as Jeup and Lee Geon. Sangil challenged the intro and parts where the tone could stand out one after another, but he was taken away by the other members and showed a disappointing expression.
Still, Sangil did not give up. Rather, Sangil showed enthusiasm towards Jeup and Lee Geon, saying, “Tell me about the song.” During this episode, Green Team was practicing for Third Mission: Self-Producing. Although Sangil was having a hard time during the practice session, Green Team received 317 votes.
In addition, even after the practice was over, he continued to practice vocalization, asked for help with singing, and continued his efforts to improve his skills. Thanks to this, Green Team where Sangil belonged succeeded in successfully performing EXO‘s “Miracle in December.”
SNUPER’s member Sang-il appeared on KBS2TV’s The Unit and received attention from viewers for his sincere appearance. In The Unit, which was broadcasted on the 2nd, Sangil took on a big role in the team as the main vocalist and was portrayed with heavy responsibility.
For his cool singing ability, Sangil practiced vocalization day and night without a break, mobilized even a bottle of mineral water to gain sound, and this became a so-called “saengsutong vocal technique.” With Sangil’s bloody practice, he proved his efforts by seamlessly digesting the high treble of 2PM’s “Heartbeat” in this performance.
TV Chosun’s Mister Trot was the follow-up to the hit show Miss Trot which was an audition program looking for a star who will lead the golden age of both genres. Trot is a genre of Korean pop music known for its distinctive singing style with tonality, and it was very popular in the 1960s and 70s. Miss Trot achieved 18.1% in viewership ratings, beating out all other programs in that time span. It also made the winner Song Ga-in a star.
Following the popularity of the first season, TV Chosun launched Mister Trot, and the network revealed a lineup of 101 contestants (including four groups) and their profile pictures. Mister Trot featured a panel of judges including JYJ’s Kim Junsu and premiered on January 2, 2020.
One of the contestants was Sangil, the main vocalist of the boy group SNUPER who debuted in 2015. Sangil was born in 1993 and also competed on the KBS idol reboot show The Unit from 2017-18.
Before the broadcast of Mister Trot, SNUPER’s Sangil also appeared in a teaser video that parodied a scene from a music video. In this scene, SNUPER’s Sangil becomes a boyfriend who goes to visit his girlfriend, but he shows off aegyo and the door is closed tightly after his girlfriend sees him.
In the 1st episode, the first broadcast of Mister Trot which had been prepared for a year finally aired. With a total of 15,000 applicants, the competition ratio was 150:1, and a total of 101 teams were finally selected.
