P1Harmony, a fourth-generation boy group, recently achieved a monumental milestone by winning first place on a music show for the first time since their debut. Their victory came on the February 16 episode of KBS2TV’s Music Bank. Their latest single  “Killin’ It” outscored (G)I-DLE‘s “Super Lady” with a total of 8,694 points.

“Killin’ It” is the eponymous title track of their latest album, characterized by its sparse arrangement. It boasts catchy synth sounds reminiscent of ’90s hip-hop, bolstered by 808 bass. The track embodies P1Harmony‘s confidence. In the song, the group’s members—Intak, Jiung, Jongseob, Keeho, Soul, and Theo—assert their unparalleled style and declare themselves incomparable, proclaiming themselves as the best. 

The boys were surprised to find themselves in the running for first place. On the day of their win, P1Harmony delivered a dynamic performance of “Killin’ It” that proved they truly deserved it. The victory brought the members to tears, with Intak, who had trained the longest among them, being particularly emotional. He was comforted by his longtime friend and fellow member, Jiung. Intak later admitted that he cried harder after the broadcast, as did the other members.

Keeho’s heartfelt speech

Meanwhile, their leader Keeho, in a heartfelt speech in both Korean and English, thanked everyone involved in their journey. 

“I want to express my gratitude to our director for loving, supporting, and guiding us on the right path,” Keeho began, his voice trembling with emotion. “I also want to thank the FNC family who worked hard during the process of making this album, to the managers who work hard on the spot, to the hair and makeup staff who create beautiful appearances for us, to our families who support us, and finally, our fans. We’ve been working hard for three years, and you always support and love us. I’m grateful we were able to receive this award. This award is for all of you. This is for you guys, thank you so much!”

The group also posted about their victory on Weverse, acknowledging the long road they took to get to this moment since their debut in 2020. This long-awaited and well-deserved win has been a moment of celebration for both P1Harmony and their fans, known as P1eces.
