MONSTA X shares thoughts on being called the group to follow BTS

(Bangtan Boys) BTS, MONSTA X
MONSTA X shared thoughts on the comparison to BTS.

Just recently, MONSTA X successfully wrapped up their second world tour. During their travel across the globe, MONSTA X made numerous headlines on foreign media outlets and also appeared on foreign shows including 'Good Day New York', and 'Good Day LA'. 

Due to their immense international popularity and successful overseas promotions, the boy group is often compared to BTS who made history with their global achievements. In a comeback interview on October 22, the members of MONSTA X is asked to share thoughts on being called the group to follow BTS. 

Wonho said, "BTS sunbaenims have opened up the path. I'm grateful to be called the ones following the group who we also find amazing," and added, "Every time I hear such title, it makes me think that I need to show an amazing side so it won't offend the sunbaenims."

Kihyun also said, "There's BTS sunbaenim and many others who have spread K-pop, so I really felt the difference during the second world tour." He explained, "During our world tour, we had many interviews and broadcasts. I could definitely feel that K-pop's influence on the world has become greater."

Meanwhile, MONSTA X has returned with the new album 'Are You There?' and title track "Shoot Out".

Monsta x and bts are friends. A couple of them go back to predebut days. Mx don’t seem to mind the occasional question about their friends who they like and respect.

The Monsta X & BTS relationship is unique in that there is a lot of overlap with their fans. Monsta X is THE #1 band that armies recommend the most in bts fan forums, since MonstaX and early BTS songs share the same musical style/genre preferences.

Glad to see someone else that knows their history. I love Kihyun and Yoongi's friendship. So many groups are friends with each other. Shownu was suppose to debut in Got7 and he's still friends with members there. There is a member that is friends with Vixx, others that are friends with other groups. Fans fight while idols chill.

Interviewers need to stop asking other groups about BTS. It's the same as what happened before when Twice was asked about BTS. They're all being FORCED to talk about and compliment that group....when each group - Monsta X, Twice, NCT etc already have fans worldwide because of their OWN hard work, talent, chemistry, music, and personalities.


It's not like these poor idols can say anything but 'thank you BTS' or they'll cause a backlash from crazed ARMY kids who actually believe their faves are better than everyone. They're just being polite here.

Well everything is a pyramid and is interconnected. TWICE's success in Japan has reopened that country and many people will follow to great success. Its just funny how some ARMY want people to admit that BTS brought the West attention back to Kpop and will clap at statements like this but then want to act like others who began the Hallyu Wave to begin with didn't do anything and like they didn't put Kpop on the map. It goes both ways. Anyway, let's celebrate Monsta X!!!

I don't know why anybody would tell you to "follow" somebody.

Be yourself and go your own way!

Honestly, I wish interviewers would stop asking other groups about their thoughts revolving around BTS. IT'S BEEN SAID COUNTLESS TIMES how BTS has helped spread the love for kpop worldwide tenfold. It kind of bothers me how groups like MONSTA X are backed into a corner & almost forced to give their sunbaenims compliments when in reality they need to use that time to promote their own group and show what they can offer to the world. The news outlets, interviewers, broadcasters, radio stations, etc. need to give the group that is currently there, their full attention. BTS has earned enough on their own. Lets give these other groups that tour worldwide, their own recognition, and applaud them for their own hard work & talent that got them where they are. #MONSTAX #MONBEBE

Geez. Monsta X is Monsta X and BTS is BTS. Why people are always comparing them and are forcing the boys to praise their seniors and say thank you to them all the time even though BTS aren't responsible for Monsta X success? It's their hard work and the fact their music is enjoyable that got them so far. BTS didn't promote them and most of BTS fans are BTS fans only.

there no denying that BTS is changing the game for kpop just like how big bang and super junior did during there height of popularity (not saying that the 2 mentioned groups aren't popular not) ppl just need to give credit where credit is due and learn to accept the truth no one is trying to throw shade on other groups facts are just being stated and if u notice to all those complaining MonstaX did allude to the other groups that are currently hot and making waves with kpop around the world
