Road to Kingdom is a prequel to the survival show Kingdom. Later, the boy group that wins Road to Kingdom will appear on the Kingdom program, which is a boy group version of the survival show Queendom.

On June 19, 2020, Mnet aired the final episode of the reality show Road to Kingdom. Previously, The Boyz, Oneus, ONF, Pentagon, and Verivery were five of the seven participating groups that made it to the final round.
In the final episode broadcast on June 18, 2020, the five groups performed their best stage acts with their newest songs. The Boyz, who performed a number of interesting stage acts, succeeded in becoming the main and only winner in the Road to Kingdom competition.
At the beginning of the episode, Road to Kingdom announced that two groups could win this event, namely the group with the highest cumulative score from all rounds of the competition and the group with the highest score specifically in the final round.
However, if a group meets both criteria, then only one group will advance to the Kingdom event. The score itself is calculated from various aspects such as fan voting, the number of YouTube viewers, and the digital scores of the five comeback songs of the participating groups. The final result shows both cumulatively and specifically in the final round that The Boyz is the group that is able to achieve the highest score. That way, The Boyz had the right to appear in the competition event Kingdom.

The Boyz Received Some Advice From Their Rivals on Mnet’s Kingdom
The Boyz could compete in Kingdom: Legendary War after winning the Road to Kingdom competition. Of course, Juyeon and the other members were facing a more challenging situation than before.
The fourth episode of Kingdom which aired on April 22, 2021, recorded the meeting of The Boyz’s members with the contestants of the previous show. On one occasion, Hyunjae, Juyeon, and Q ate together with ONEUS’ Hwanwoong and Seoho, VERIVERY’s Kangmin and Dongheon, as well as Hyojin and E-Tion from ONF.
As is known, ONEUS, VERIVERY, and ONF were The Boyz’s competitors during the Road to Kingdom event. For competitors, The Boyz is the representative of all the contestant groups of Road to Kingdom.
At the meeting, the members of The Boyz revealed that there was a debate within the group about what they would do for the next round. Right now, they are considering whether to challenge themselves by trying something new or playing it safe using their skills.
Hearing this, Hwanwoong responded, “In my opinion, although The Boyz’s intense dance performance looks good and stands out, the storyline behind your performance is quite strong. It makes the audience wonder, ‘How did they come up with that idea?’ You make it easy for anyone watching to immediately understand the story [behind your performance], but there are also elements that really surprise the audience. Even as a fellow competitor, I applaud when watching you,” he continued.
Hwanwoong then added that as long as The Boyz believes in the storyline, then they can put on a cooler show than any group. According to him, with this attitude, The Boyz can still beat new challenges.
Besides Hwanwoong, Hyojin then commented, “It’s good to keep the first position in your mind, but it can cause a lot of pressure to think, ‘I have to be first.’ I think that kind of thinking can actually have a negative effect. So I wanted to tell you [The Boyz] to be more relaxed [during Kingdom].”
Next, Dongheon encouraged The Boyz by saying, “All the Road to Kingdom groups support you, so I believe that you will succeed. I hope you will be much more confident. You will be fine, so I hope you can find strength,” Hwanwoong said.
Then, the three members of The Boyz thanked them for their support as fellow contestants of Road to Kingdom. For them, the support and input they received that day was very meaningful and could help them in the process of participating in the Kingdom competition. Despite being shrouded in worry, they felt better and were ready to compete.
