Singing Man (Namimorish: シンキングマン, Koran: 싱깅맨) is a song competition organised by Namimorish public broadcaster Namimorish Television as a special spinoff of the famous variety show Running Man. It has selected the country's representative for the Fantasia Contest until now. Since October 2019, it has been also used to select the entry for Qasentria.


After the country’s successful attempt to apply for the Fantasia Contest and was accepted in the sixteenth edition, Namimori firstly planned to internally send a Foxtavian-Namimorish composer Sawano Hiroyuki to present the nation for the first time in history. The entry was also planned to be nationally selected by the televiewers via the national selection but due to economical conditions, the plan was cancelled and Kim Jun Seok and Im Yoon Jeong were announced as the representatives instead.
Several months later, Singing Man project was successfully executed with the help of Running Man producers team. The first edition took place on 17 August 2019 at Doyoon Lee Ice Arena in Cyrille-Toman, Obikuni. The show was hosted by the nation’s best master of ceremonies Yoo Jae Suk and the actress Song Ji Hyo, the show was consisted of contestants from seven prefectures and was won by Ailee with her song "Room Shaker".
In October 2020, the producer Iwaizumi Hajime announced the agreement towards the binational cooperation between nmtv and the Qasentrian national broadcaster QBA in selecting entries for Fantasia Contest with the special show Singing Man Namisentria. The music show is expected to celebrate their anniversary around Spring 2022. In January 2023, Qasentrian delegation decided to end the binational cooperation to focus more on their own musical project. On 23 January 2024, it is confirmed that the music festival will be collaborated with the Qasentrian broadcaster again after a one-year pause.
