MONSTA X fans have been thrown into a loop.


Wonho, whose real name is 'Hoseok', had been long-believed to have the last name 'Shin'. Many fans called him 'Shin Wonho' or 'Shin Hoseok'. However, it's now come out that his real name is 'Lee Hoseok', and that his stage name is just 'Wonho' - in other words, there's no 'Shin' anywhere.

They are listed as the same person in the Korea Music Copyright Association, and clicking on Lee Hoseok's name lists MONSTA X songs that he wrote lyrics for.







Monbebe, who had long believed his last name was 'Shin', are now trying to figure out how it happened, and why the label (or Wonho himself) never corrected anyone in the past two years. Some fans are asserting that neither Wonho himself nor Starship Entertainment ever said he was 'Shin' anything.


What do you think about this sudden twist?

His name has always been Shin Hoseok. Even his mom said it was Shin Hoseok. Lee Hoseok is just a rumor that started when people said he was a 92 liner not a 93 liner.http://aminoapps. com/p/bkr6yr

Oh my goodness!  Somebody call the po po.  Wonho's moniker was listed incorrectly!  The world has gone mad!

Maybe he or the company did this to protect his parents or family. Maybe he's like a chaebol kid, or something.

Nah I don't think so because in No Mercy he talked about how much his mom sacrificed for him to become a idol

Wonho's mom owns a cafe and its pretty well known among Korean fans and idols so I don't think this is the reason why.
