Netizens are surprised that MONSTA X's I.M still lives in the group's dorm even after leaving Starship Entertainment

AKP STAFF

The members of MONSTA X are nothing if not loyal!

Recently, many netizens were surprised after finding out that MONSTA X member I.M still lives in the group's shared dorm with his members, despite the fact that the star is no longer a Starship Entertainment artist. 

In August of this year, Starship Entertainment announced that members Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, and Jooheon have decided to renew their contracts with the agency. While I.M has decided to part ways with the label in terms of management activities, Starship assured fans that he will still continue his activities as a member of MONSTA X.

And it looks like even after parting ways with Starship Entertainment, I.M is still living with his hyungs in the group dorm!

Kihyun told fans during a comeback fan sign event last month, "Do you know why I'm so thankful to have Changkyun (I.M)? When I go back home after my schedules, he always says to me, without fail, 'Good work today, hyung'. When I leave in the morning for my schedules, he says, 'Hyung, see you later'. Changkyun always greets me. Without fail. I have the best members, don't I?"

In fact, the boys are still having a blast at their dorm watching 'Transit Love'.

Hyungwon: 

"I worked out with Changkyun today. 
He bulked up a lot. I need to keep up.
Let's do better (me)~
While we ate lunch we gossiped about 'Transit Love'.
But I'm not telling you what we said.
BamBam is the luckiest.
He gets to watch it first.
Kekekekekekeke."

Kihyun:

"'Transit Love', I watched up to the part when the new woman came.
I haven't seen the rest.
Hyungwon and Changkyun.
They're practically gone through the screen and act like they're sitting in the panel.
They're obsessed with that show."

Netizens reacted with comments like,

"Wow they're still living in the same dorm? And the company pays for the dorm?"
"I saw them riding in the same vehicle too. Sometimes I forget that I.M's not in Starship."
"This is the first time I've seen an idol do this."
"Wow, and he's not uncomfortable about it at all?"
"Probably because the agency is still making earnings from group promotions and he gets expenses paid from that."
"This is pretty cool. That definitely says he doesn't have a bad relationship with the company."
"I thought Changkyun wanted to leave the dorm with the ugly wallpaper lol. What's he still doing there lol."
"They look like they're seriously close, like best friends."
"I want to talk about 'Transit Love' too kekekekekeke."
