MONSTA X confidently comment that they can't not win 1st place with their latest comeback

MONSTA X

In light of their comeback with 'The 2nd Album Take.1 - Are You There?', MONSTA X held a media interview to discuss their current and future plans.

While describing their 2nd full album concept, Kihyun hinted, "The answer to the question 'Are You There?' will be answered in our next album, 'Take.2'."


To a comment, "You've never won 1st place on one of the big three music programs. You must have bigger expectations this time," Wonho remarked, "When I looked at us in the mirror as we practiced our choreography, I thought that 1st place would be possible this time around. We looked so charismatic to the point where I thought that it would be unacceptable if we didn't win 1st place. So I gained more confidence. I want to anticipate 1st place."


As the members also addressed their goals for their "Shoot Out" promotions, Hyungwon added, "It's not that we're always focussed on winning 1st place for all of our promotions, but this time, I really want it. I would like for our digital score to improve, so that more people will learn about us. There are many songs including Jooheon, Wonho, and I.M's self-composed songs, so I hope people listen to them. I hope that the long and arduous efforts that we've put in will see the light."


Minhyuk shared his two cents with, "Of course the scores aren't important, but I would like for our song to chart higher than #40, and for our album sales to surpass 300,000." I.M said, "If MONSTA X were able to garner attention with our last album, then I would like for this album to establish our place in the industry. We've had so many happy things happen and we're spending happy days, so I want the happiness to continue through this album." 


Do you think MONSTA X will be able to claim their 1st win on a public broadcasting station music program with "Shoot Out"?

I really hope they win. I've been listening to their new album on replay. I love every single song. I totally got my friend who mainly listens to rock, and definitely doesn't listen to Kpop, to listen to MX and she's seriously a Monbebe now! I agree that if Monbebe work really hard, we can help them achieve their goals!!

The only way for them to win is to comeback when there are no competitors around just like how momoland did it last year and got7 a few months ago

Yeah I agree. For groups who haven't won yet, that's their biggest chance at winning, promoting when most top groups aren't.

I really like this comeback. It's a catchy song and the mv is really cool.


Monsta X are one of the more talented groups, so it sucks to see how underappreciated they are in Korea, but kudos to them for always remaining hard-working and positive.

The whole album is really great. Monsta X produce so many quality songs. I really hope people - even non fans - will just take a moment and give it a listen on YouTube.

Yeah, because whoever wrote this article put a double negative. Basically saying they "can win 1st place". I was staring in confusion as well.

They have a very distinct sound and image from other boy groups. You see a lot of boy groups these days and they all sound the same, the rappers sound pretty much the same, concepts and visuals too (even top groups). 'Shoot Out' is really catchy :)

After viewing the comeback video "Shoot Out" I was amazed and in awe. It was absolutely stunning. Monster X is truly an underappreciated group. They are incredibly talented. Their music is always good. I can't recall a song that was a "miss" however, I don't see much of them on YouTube or on variety shows. I think they have a lack of presence which would create a larger following and support. I truly wish them the best and I believe they deserve a No. 1 spot on the music programs. I will also purchase their album in support.

It was a good comeback but they stole a lot of BTS dance moves tho. I believe they can win 1st place easily.

hey delulu, your ignorance would bring u nowhere either. They're still a fairly young group and it is still achievement since there are thousand other groups out there who couldn't make it. Yet monsta x still manage to bring their name out there that's why many ppl heard of them. Well, at least u know they exist😁 their last album surpassed 200k so ofc they're gonna improve so watch us grow ;)

Also i didn't know u are quite obsessed with MX that u feel the need to read their every article. Just admit it, MX can't escape your attention. So why not make things easier by stanning them cause it will grant u more happy days instead of acting like a grumpy old woman who only knows how to be a negative ass. You'll gain more wrinkles if u keep doing unproductive things
