On May 26th, MONSTA X held a comeback showcase for their new mini album FANTASIA X on V Live.
During the interview, the group shared about their rising popularity abroad and how they felt about ranking number 5 on Billboard 200 chart with their U.S. debut album All About Luv.
Jooheon revealed, “Billboard was our dream. We ranked 5th place with our name. It still doesn’t feel real to me.” And Minhyuk added, “We were unbelievably happy.”
MONSTA X had joined one of America’s biggest music festival, Jingle Ball, and even appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show. When talking about the Jingle Ball tour, Jooheon shared, “They sang along to our songs in Korean too. It was cool.”
The members didn’t forget to thank I.M who has been working as a translator for their promotions abroad. Shownu commented, “I.M does a lot of work.” Hyungwon also added, “I don’t think we would have gotten good results if we didn’t have I.M.” And I.M responded, “You guys are too kind. It’s all thanks to everyone working hard.”
Kihyun also shared, “I get chills when I.M introduces us as K-Pop artists from Korea. I was touched when a reporter we are close with told us that we were the only Asian artist there.”
