MONSTA X Comeback Show Recap
Looking fine and handsome in neat suits, MONSTA X opened the comeback show for their FATAL LOVE album in a light and bright atmosphere. The members expressed their confidence with the album release and mentioned that they liked the songs when they first heard them. To record, FATAL LOVE is their third full-album following Are You There? which was released two years ago.
Fatal Love Album Talk
Officially starting their album talk, the members mentioned that there were a lot of candidates for their title song. But when they heard Love Killa, they thought the song will be a jackpot.
The members then proceeded to introduce the point choreography as they explain their title song which drew attention from fans and the general audience even before its release. They named the point choreography “1 pyeong dance” which is full of soft charisma without moving their bodies much. The glimpse at their well-made choreography culminated expectations for their upcoming stages.
Particularly, Minhyuk expressed how he loved the intro and mentioned that he voted for Love Killa because of its beat. The members also brought up that they gave lots of spoilers for the song, specifically Minhyuk.
Moving forward to the show, members continuously complimented Hyungwon with his first self-composed song Nobody Else. Hyungwon explained that the song is like perfume. He strives hard to convey the emotions of how love fades just like the fragrance of a perfume.
He revealed that he was inspired by Joohoney’s casual humming when they were alone in the dorm, which made them cheer in amusement at how genius Hyungwon is. Shyly, Hyungwon said he had put a lot of affection in the making of the song.
Talking about the song BEASTMODE which was made by Joohoney, 9F, and Eric Nam, Joohoney shared that when he asked Eric for feedback and to help him improve the song, he did not hesitate and agreed right away. Eric helped with the guide version and when Hyungwon and Minhyuk heard it for the first time, they immediately thought it would be a great concert song.
I.M revealed that he did the mixing for Night View in his workroom. He was holding a Bombay bottle as he sentimentally looks out the window. I.M. said the moon looked blue through the bottle, which inspired him to write the lyrics at that moment. With this story, the members complimented their youngest while Joohoney pointed out that the songs made by the members fit their personality well.
MONSTA X answering MONBEBE’s questions
MONSTA X showed their extraordinary love for MONBEBE as they answer questions sent directly by fans. I.M. was asked what new genre he would like to try, responding that a Ratchet genre might do good. He also shared that he listens to The Weeknd, and a British rapper named Octavian.

On the other hand, Hyungwon shared that to control the puffiness, you have to reduce eating salty food. Shownu said Fatal Love is like a Bologna pasta simply because it’s delicious.
