As much as I’m excited for this, based on the past produce seasons, debuting a group with tomorrow than 7 members does not turn out to be good. Netizens will usually only pay attention mostly to the members from produce. With that being said since X1 never really established themselves maybe it will be different this time

Despite people's understandable sentiments and reservations about this group due to Starship's involvement in the Produce scandal, this was bound to happen eventually. Even with all the recent hardships surrounding Monsta X, it's crazy to think it's been so long since that group was formed, so it really is time for the company to be looking towards the next investment (especially when you consider the mandatory military enlistments that will be coming for members of Monsta X soon). While I don't feel one way or another about the boys as I didn't really follow X1, I hope people won't be too harsh on them for the mistakes of their company. Just like Monsta X, they were victims of the greed of people in power, and they certainly lost out on opportunities as a result, just like the people who were cheated out of their spots in X1.
