Mnet’s newest survival show, Queendom Puzzle, has aired several episodes. During Queendom Puzzle episode 1 and 2, which continues to feature the ‘Up and Down Battle,’ viewers realized that one contestant consistently upvoted everyone. However, when it was her turn, she got many downvotes. Who is this contestant, and how will she survive in the show?
Miru Upvoted Everyone on QUEENDOM PUZZLE
The first stage of Mnet’s Queendom Puzzle requires each contestant to perform solo, while the other 27 contestants voted ‘up or down’ based on the performance. The results of this stage will determine the new ‘tier rankings,’ which are initially decided by music show wins and album sales in Korea.
Some solo performances left the audience in awe and got many upvotes. However, some went poorly and got downvoted by most of the fellow contestants.
The solo performance of Seoyeon, who has never been a trainee, didn’t go as smoothly as others. She only got two upvotes. She believed one of the upvotes was from her beloved teammate, Jiwoo, but she had no idea who gave the other one.
Later in Queendom Puzzle episode 2, it was revealed that one contestant kept upvoting other idols no matter how the performance turned out.
Japanese idol Miru, who debuted 13 years ago, upvoted everyone in the competition. She said everyone, including Seoyeon, had worked hard for that stage’s solo performance and gave them upvotes for making her smile.
Miru Got Lots of Downvotes
Unfortunately, life seems to be unfair. Despite her generosity, Miru received fewer upvotes than she gave. Performing her own song, Shine Bright, she only got 5 upvotes and 22 downvotes.
Despite getting more downvotes, Miru kept being positive by thanking everyone in the room for giving her a chance to perform and watching her performance in Mnet’s Queendom Puzzle.
Although she got more downvotes than upvotes from other contestants in Queendom Puzzle, she got lots of support from viewers. Her incredibly supportive and positive attitude touched viewers, calling her the ‘real-life angel.’ That angelic behavior has earned her new fans in Korea and worldwide.

Will Miru Survive in Queendom Puzzle?
Following the ‘Up and Down Battle,’ Queendom Puzzle contestants are ready to get to the next stage, ‘7 vs 7 Battle.’ The 28 contestants will be divided into 4 groups, each consisting of 7 members. But firstly, they have to choose from 2 given songs, Charismatic or Snap.
The idol with the highest score in each song group has Puzzle Power, a privilege to choose her group members. Those selected are referred to as the ‘PICKed’ ones, while the others are known as the ‘DROPped’ ones.
Charismatic (puzzled by Jiwon)
Pick: Jiwon, Nana, Chaeyeon, Jiwoo, Soeun, Wooyeon, Jihan
Drop: Suyun, Haein, Seoyeon, JooE, Soojin, Zoa, Yeonhee
*note: Chaeyeon and Haein decided to drop out of the show
Snap (puzzled by Bora)
Pick: Bora, Yeeun, Yeoreum, Sangah, Yuki, Riina, Chaerin
Drop: Elly, Miru, Dohwa, Kei, Hwiseo, Fye, Juri
Miru chose Snap, but Bora, who has Puzzle Power, dropped her. Until now, she is still underestimated by other contestants. However, viewers keep high expectations from her as she also has experience in performing with her former group.
