MONSTA X has just become your Valentine’s Day crush for this year! At least that’s what the photoshoot for their “Single” magazine pictorial says. Only two of the members’ photos have been released so far, Minhyuk and Shownu. The boys look absolutely adorable, and fangirls are sure to forego any other Valentine’s Day crushes for MONSTA X this year it seems.
MONSTA X discussed how thankful they were towards their fans by saying, "We like how we can directly communicate with them, but it's unfortunate that we can only talk with them for a few seconds at a time, so we focus and concentrate more on what our fans say."
Hyungwon spoke with a fan who began to sob uncontrollably as soon as they saw him. He commented, "I was thankful for the fan's heart and very worried at the same time."
MONSTA X is a South Korean hip hop boy group formed by Starship Entertainment in 2015. The members were chosen through a survival television show entitled No.Mercy. The group consists of seven members: Shownu, Wonho, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Jooheon, and I.M. The group's name Monsta X is derived from the word 'mon' which means 'my' in French and 'sta' which is shortened for 'star'. Therefore 'Monsta' means 'my star'. Meanwhile, the 'X' represents the unknown.
