MBC taking advantage of MONSTA X has angered both MONSTA X fans and other fans alike.


In July, MONSTA X created a special choreography for Super Junior's "Sorry Sorry" for MBC's 'Korea Music Wave' in Japan. However, the entire segment was edited out due to 'time constraints', and fans were only able to watch through fancams.

However, if that wasn't bad enough, Wonho brought up on their 'V' app broadcast that their choreography had actually been taken without their permission. BTS, G-Friend, TWICE, and Leeteuk had performed "Sorry Sorry" at MBC's '2016 DMC Festival' - and the dance break in the middle was copied exactly from MONSTA X's. When MONSTA X, shocked at seeing their own choreography (that they created themselves and practiced hard for), being performed, asked MBC what had happened. MBC merely told them their choreography was cool, so they handed it off to the other groups to perform. The revelation shocked fans because even though they had noticed the choreo was identical, they thought permission had been gotten.


The incident grew and a Twitter tag trended in defense of MONSTA X. MONSTA X fans were rightly furious at MBC - not at the groups that performed, because it was not their fault. Other fans were incredibly angry as well and came to the defense of MONSTA X. As MONSTA X is a relatively new group in a company that isn't one of the bigger labels, K-pop fans believe that they had been taken advantage of.

Im not part of the monster x fandom for I am an ARMY. Even though it's one of the fandoms I'm apart of(though I plan to learn more about monsta x and their members) I honestly think MBC should apologize. It's not right to forget not asking permission. Ita just not right, especially since they obviously worked really hard on the choreography. That is absolutely messed up
