KWINs’ Tiu, Kim Sohee and Kim Hye-rim did their best but came up short against duo Boyfriend, composed of Park Hyun-jin and Kim Jong-seob, who won first place in the final contest held a few days ago at Bucheon Gymnasium in Bucheon, South Korea.

Boyfriend, whose members are both 11 years old, became the youngest winner in the contest’s six-year history.

For their feat, Boyfriend will receive a cash prize of 300 million won (P13.12 million), a Hyundai i30 car and a deal to release an album in Korea.

KWINs finished the first round in first place, getting a score of 289 from the judges for performing “Trouble Maker” by Hyuna and Hyunseung against Boyfriend, who got 285 for singing G-Dragon’s “Crooked.”

However, in the second round, Boyfriend got the edge by getting a score of 297 including a perfect 100 for their rendition of “Swing Baby” by Park Jin-young while KWINs received 275 for singing “Thriller” by Michael Jackson.

Boyfriend’s got a total score of 582 and KWINS got 564 from judges Park Jin-young of JYP Entertainment, Yang Hyun-suk of YG Entertainment and Yoo Hee-yeol of Antenna Music.
The winner was determined by combining the judges’ score (60 percent) and the viewers’ real-time votes (40 percent).
