History[edit]

2014–2015: No.Mercy and debut[edit]

The group was formed, as the result of the survival program called No.Mercy, which was launched by Starship Entertainment and Mnet in December 2014.[13] Through the course of ten episodes, twelve trainees (thirteen after I.M joined the competition on episode 8) competed against each other through various performances and were ranked from one to twelve, with one being the best and twelve being the worst. They also have to wear a nametag with their ranking, which changed following the challenges and performances set by the judges. For the show, the participants worked directly with artists from Starship Entertainment, including Hyolyn, K.Will, Mad Clown, and Soyou, as well as other artists, such as Rhymer, San E, Giriboy, and Genius Nochang. These artists also served as judges for ranking the contestants.[14][15] For the concluding mission, the nine remaining members formed into three groups of three to compete and the members of Monsta X were selected from these nine in the final episode as the seven members of the group: Shownu, Wonho, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Jooheon, and I.M.[16]

No.Mercy also led to the 2014 spin-off web series Deokspatch, which also began airing in December, which was meant to showcase a more casual and lighthearted side to the competition in order for people to get to know the trainees better. It also continued as Deokspatch X on May 14, 2015 and as Deokspatch X² on October 2, 2015. These seasons focused on the newly formed Monsta X participating in variety show activities.[17][18]

The group's name "Monsta X" contains the double meaning of "Monsters conquering the K-pop scene" and "My star" (Mon means "My" in French), then X symbolizes an unknown existence.[19] Their fandom name "Monbebe" is also French for "my baby".[20] Jooheon, Hyungwon, and I.M also released their song "Interstellar", which was produced for the final mission by Yella Diamond on February 12, 2015.[21]

Jooheon was the most involved member in the production of the mini-album and composed several songs, including "One Love", "Steal Your Heart", and "Blue Moon". I.M was also involved in the rap making of several songs. Kihyun and Wonho contributed song lyrics for the EP.[23]

On September 1, the group returned with their second extended play titled Rush. The title track of the same name is described as a song that represents their signature style, that produced by Giriboy. Keone Madrid choreographed the dance and Joo Hee-sun directed the music video.[24] The mini-album contains six tracks produced by Mad Clown, Crybaby and Rhymer. Jooheon also took part in making the rap for five out of the six tracks, while fellow member I.M was involved in four songs, including the title track "Rush".[25] In 2015, they made their first U.S. appearance performing at KCON 2015 in Los Angeles.[26] They also received the "Next Generation Asian Artist" award at 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards and the "1theK Performance Award" at 2015 Melon Music Awards.[27][28]

Artistry[edit]

Musical style and influences[edit]

Monsta X is known for having a unique style, often described as intense or aggressive, combining the elements of hip hop, EDM, and pop.[1][9] Philip Merrill described their sound for the Grammy's news publication as distinct in the K-pop scene with Monsta X "adding their Korean eclectic backgrounds to a meld between American rap, rock, and pop, they bring a throbbing rhythmic bounce, lyrics hard enough to slide in raps at will, melodies pop enough to hold you, all with a rock edge as the greater context".[153] The group's aggressive style with "tracks centred around loud, clattering, electronic instrumentals, vicious rap verses and striking vocals" had been influential across the fourth generation of K-pop.[10]

While the group is often known for their intense style, their albums frequently are "a mix between intense songs and softer ballads".[9] Michael Cerio of Radio.com described their EP Follow: Find You as "a balance of ballads and bangers".[154] Tamar Herman of Billboard described their first English-language studio album All About Luv as "a divergence from their boisterous dance-oriented album they typically release in the South Korean music market", focusing on "an overwhelming sense of sentimentality and smoothness",[155] while it was also said to have proven that "K-pop transcends language barriers".[156]

Early in their career, Monsta X cited Big Bang as the artist that influences and inspires them.[157][158][159] The group also cited various international artists as their musical influences, including Michael Jackson,[159][160] Chris Brown,[159] and Bruno Mars.[160]

Concept and lyrical themes[edit]

Monsta X showed how diverse their concepts were, starting from their LGBT-themed concept for The Clan series, which is all about youth growth. L-ost depicts the loss and pain of youth, containing young people who live with pain in their hearts and having tragic ending through loss, G-uilty contains the story of protecting their innocence against the world that has caused them loss and pain, and B-eautiful portrays youth's rebellion, released in T-rilogy.[161]

The group also showed how they expanded their worldview, through the release of Take.1 Are You There?, as they explore the seven deadly sins concept. It was conceptualized as battle of "Light and Dark", "Good and Evil", "Life and Death", and everything on the border, searching salvation.[162] It continued through the release of Take.2 We Are Here, with the theme of finding hope in the midst of loss and wandering, while finding salvation in the process.[163]

As they were inspired to go in a new direction to show the many sides to love, Monsta X came back with a villain-inspired concept, referencing different well-known characters from the movies, such as Kingsman, American Psycho, The Silence of the Lambs, Fight Club, Joker, and Drive, upon the release of Fatal Love. Experimenting with their boldest concept yet: temptation, the group wanted to explore the darker side of romance, showing it as both cruel and beautiful.[164][165]

The group's lyrics address the themes of love and empowerment in general.[155][166]

Stage and aesthetics[edit]

Monsta X had been breaking gender norms before it was a trend.[11] Taylor Glasby of GQ stated that their "smokey eye make-up, embellished jackets, chokers, and leather trousers, with bondage-style leather harnesses under double-breasted suits", made it "sensual, provocative, and divisive but Monsta X have developed a proud ownership of this duality".[167] Natalie Morin described the group's armor for Refinery29 as "usually some mixture of blacks, golds, and reds, leather, and dramatic, smokey makeup, with an aura around them that mere mortals dare not disturb", accenting that the group "fit closely in many ways to what Koreans would describe as the "beast" idol aesthetic – dark, edgy, traditionally "masculine" presenting – as opposed to the softer, cute "flower boy" aesthetic also found among many male K-pop groups".[168]

The group was also commended for using traditional Korean inspired elements during their performances, including hanbok-inspired outfits and the use of the taepyeongso.[169][170] Their modernized take on the men's hanbok, "in black and gold prints flowing past their waists like a cape, with fitted pants of mostly gold designs, and the use of the Korean drums, was also highlighted".[171] Kim Ri-eul, a hanbok designer who created hanbok fashion for Monsta X, also hope that "the beauty of traditional hanbok will become more widely known through the Korean wave".[172]

Public image and impact[edit]

When 20th and 21st century singers who have something in common were introduced, from music to stage costumes, concepts, and tones, a parallel theory of two singers, so-called "doppel singers", was made. Monsta X is said to be the singers that continues the myth of the "Original Beast Idol" Shinhwa and had obtained the modifier of "Next Generation Beast Idol".[12]

Monsta X is also called the "Global K-pop Group", recognized as one of the artists that contributed and extended the Korean wave globally.[173] In 2018, they performed for the yearly iHeartRadio's Jingle Ball Tour, making them the first Korean group to perform at iHeartRadio's annual event,[174][175] as well as in 2019,[176] and in 2021.[177][178] The group was also rendered by Cartoon Network in an episode of the animated series We Bare Bears, making them the first-ever guest stars in an American animated series.[179] They were personally invited by the South Korean President Moon Jae-in to perform for King Harald V of Norway for the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and Norway.[180] Monsta X became the first K-pop artist to appear on a live broadcast of the morning news program Good Morning Britain of the British ITV channel.[181] They were also the first Korean singers to appear and perform on the popular U.S. TV show The Kelly Clarkson Show.[182] They also appeared and performed at the Time 100 Talks, where they also voiced support for the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as drawing attention to the work of medical professionals during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.[183][184] The group was also dubbed by the Korean media as "Korea's Representative Group" and "K-pop Emerging Power" because of their remarkable achievements abroad.[185][186]

Hailed as the "K-pop Monster" for their exemplary stages and performances,[187] Monsta X proved their local popularity and as a bar that newly proves its qualifications as a global musician by becoming the first Korean group to perform at 2019 Teen Choice Awards.[188] The group also proved their local popularity by predicting live broadcasts of performance held at the Staples Center, where world-class stars took the stage, becoming the twelfth Asian artists in history to gross over $1,000,000 in one show in North America.[189][190]

In 2018, Maeil Business Newspaper cited that their tour alone had accumulated more than a third of Starship Entertainment's annual sales and growth of 35% since their debut.[191] In 2019, an official statement from Kakao M revealed that Monsta X received 7,906 shares (about 1,000,000,000) of it to resolve issue rights to strengthen solidarity with affiliates and entertainers. They are one of many Kakao M-affiliated artists who received stocks from the company, of which, according to reports, is also preparing to rejoin Korea Exchange through a re-IPO.[192] In 2020, Starship Entertainment's CEO Kim Shi-dae named them as the agency's "cash cows" and "flagship group", recording sales of 10,000,000,000.[193]

In 2022, the American online publication Teen Vogue included Monsta X on their "Best Boy Bands of All Time", citing them as "K-pop Icons", then consider them as one of the most popular K-pop groups (and most popular boy bands) around the world.[194] In 2023, the said publication also cited the group's "signature style", which influenced newer generations of artists through styling, performances, vibes, and music.[195]

Monsta X had influenced numerous artists, including Verivery,[196] DKZ,[197] Newkidd,[198] OnlyOneOf,[199] DKB,[200] Cravity,[201] WEi,[202] Ciipher,[203] Trendz,[204] and TAN,[205] as well as A.C.E's Chan,[206] Drippin's Junho,[207] and Kingdom's Dann and Mujin.[208][209]
