Commemorating the 6oth anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the two countries, the huge celebration took place at the Oslo Opera House. It saw the attendance of South Korea’s very own President Moon Jae In and his wife Kim Jung Sook who were on a state visit and personally invited the performers, plus Norway’s honorable King Harald V.
Livening up the stage as the show’s first performers, the group showed off their latest hit “Alligator” to the crowd of Norwegian fans whom they met for the very first time.
Before proceeding to their second song – their recent collaboration with world-renowned DJ and producer Steve Aoki titled “Play It Cool”, the MONSTA X members personally thanked President Moon Jae In, who invited them to “the honorable event celebrating the 60th anniversary of Korean-Norwegian diplomatic relations”.
Fans also showed their immense excitement for the group’s performances by passionately cheering while they were on stage. During the chorus of “Dramarama”, fans also showed a thunderous response when the members called out the line “Dramarama” which they answered back with loud “hey”s.
