Hi there! This is Stove Cat. Thank you for all coming together with one ghost and pretending you don’t know who I am !! Now that I’ve taken off this mask that received so much love, I feel both refreshed and regretful. I have developed a lot of affection for this cat and I feel a shiver in my heart when I let it go.
First of all, I would like to express my deep gratitude to the production staff from “The King of Mask Singer”, who came to see me before I was released from the military. I was able to sit on the throne of the champion I had never dreamed of for five months. It was an unforgettable time.
“The King of Mask Singer” is a show that people around me had high expectations for. I felt pressured that it was a competitive program as I was preparing my performances and there were some little difficulties but every time I got to sing on stage I forgot to sing good or bad and was just happy can sing.
I will be a furnace cat who always likes to sing and is always grateful that I can comfort and move people with my songs! Thank you to everyone who showed their love for Stove Cat!
PS It was a great honor to see Treasure Box perform in person! I will pray for your winning streak! Waiting, “The king of mask singers!”
