Monsta X is a hip-hop boy group from South Korea. It was formed in 2015 by Starship Entertainment. It consists of seven members namely: Shownu, Wonho, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Jooheon and I.M. The members were carefully chosen through a TV show called NO.MERCY on MNET, in which many talented singers, rappers, and dancers were fighting for their place in the group.
Debut and success
After many alterations on the group’s lineup during the TV Show, Monsta X launched their first official single in May 2015. The music video of the song “Trespass” was released on the same day and it was an instant success. As part of their promotion effort, the label created a web reality series called “Deokspatch”, starring NO.MERCY trainees. After that, the group released another single, called “Rush” on September. Their big success was confirmed with them winning the prestigious Mnet Asian Music Award for “Next Generation Asian Artist”. They want to establish themselves as a successful K-Pop boy band and prepare for their debut in Japan and other countries.

We plan to take them to the hospital at the first sign of even a little pain, Starship Entertainment confirmed.
Debut and success in Japan and other areas
As the group was recently formed, it is only natural that they only focus on their Korean fans.
