South Korea – The participatory mobile idol fandom app ‘IDOLCHAMP’ held a fan PD vote from October 26 to November 9 with the theme of “Who is the most anticipated comeback idol by fan PDs?”
Out of the 380,543 votes in total, Monsta X, who returned with its 10th mini album ‘No Limit’ on November 19, was ranked first in the ‘Most Anticipated November Comeback Idol by Fan PDs’ with 40.99% of the votes.
Monsta X, a six-member boy group in Starship Entertainment, is a K-pop idol in their 7th year of debut. The members were formed through ‘NO. MERCY,’ a survival program in 2015 and after about three months of preparation, they officially debuted in May 2015 with the release of their first mini album ‘TRESPASS.’
MONSTA X, well-known as the ‘master of performance,’ is loved by many fans in Korea and abroad, appealing a differentiated charming point from existing male idols with rough hip-hop energy and beagle beauty.
MONSTA X, who have been recognized for their musicality by receiving various large-scale awards last year, also included dynamism and intense performances in this new album, and they are showing off their beast-like performances with the title song ‘Rush Hour’ by being ranked No. 1 in music charts and winning in the music show programs twice.
‘No Limit’, the 10th mini album released 5 months after ‘One Of A Kind’ in June, showed MONSTA X’s unlimited appearance under any situation, expressing MONSTA X’s original focus on ‘dynamicity’ and ‘straightforwardness.’ The title song “Rush Hour” is a song that is used as a metaphor for ‘Rush Hour,’ a word that means a crowded situation or time, to a complex world. It contains MONSTA X’s own spirit and confidence as well as rhythmic beats that resonate in the ears.
Meanwhile, after MONSTA X, ASTRO MJ was unfortunately selected in second place with 40.97% of the votes as the ‘Most Anticipated November Comeback Idol by Fan PDs,’ followed by Oneus (5.57%), Super Junior D&E (4.96%), 2AM (2.85%) and others ranked below. The voting results can also be checked on GstarLive, a global Hallyu community.
At ‘IDOLCHAMP,’ a vote is underway until 5 p.m., December 3rd, for “Which idol looks good in soft and cozy knitwear?” There are 12 candidates, including Felix of Stray Kids, Dahyun of Twice, Hueningkai of Tomorrow X Tomorrow, Sandeul of B1A4, and Jooheon of Monsta X, and the idol that comes in first place of the vote will shoot a magazine spread paper advertisement.
