Monsta X announces new comeback and mini album

In the last couple of years, the entire world is seeing a massive rise in the popularity of K-Pop music. K-Pop, shortened for Korean Pop, is popular music from South Korea. It is not a genre in itself, rather an umbrella term for all Korean music encompassing a diverse variety of genres. Monsta X is one of the biggest idol groups, not just in South Korea but also in the entire world. They were initially a seven-member group before their member Wonho left in October 2019. Since then, they have been operating as a six-member group with members – Shownu, Minhyun, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Joohoney, and I.M.

Monsta X is managed by Starship Entertainment and was formed from the popular survival show on Mnet – No Mercy. The group has four vocalists and two rappers. I.M. and Joohoney are the rappers while all the other four members handle the vocals. Wonho, the former member, was also a vocalist. He left the group after it was found that there were some issues between him and the agency. However, as of 2020, Wonho signed with a subsidiary of Starship Entertainment and will be pursuing a solo career. Read on to find out more about the group and their latest album announcement.

If you are new to the world of k-pop, we understand how overwhelming the sheer amount of content can be. We have got you covered if you are not well acquainted with Monsta X. The group actually debuted in 2015 with their first extended play Trespass. Almost two years later, in 2017, they released their first full-length studio album and called it The Clan Pt. 2.5: The Final Chapter. Since then, they have received massive success not just in South Korea but also in Japan. Later, in 2020, they also broke through the marker in the United States when their first album entirely in English, All About Luv, ranked 5th on the US Billboard 200.

The group’s discography is very diverse. It shows how talented and versatile the boys are as artists. Their songs are a blend of EDM, hip hop, and pop music. Often aggressive in their delivery, the younger generation relates very well to the desperation with which the boys sing. Their beautiful vocals and raw rap verses with electronic music have made them one of the most prominent idol boy bands in fourth-generation k-pop. Read on more to find out about their latest album.
