MONSTA X Impresses Los Angeles And San Francisco In “Jingle Ball” Shows

By  | 

MONSTA X promised to make Jingle Ball “K-Poppin'” and the boy group did not disappoint.

MONSTA X successfully wrapped up its first performances for the Jingle Ball US Concert Tour where Shownu, Minhyuk, I.M, Hyungwon, Jooheon, Kihyun, and Wonho shared the stage with big names like Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Cardi B, and Camilla Cabello.

The seven-member boy group represented South Korea as the first K-Pop group to perform on the concert tour.

In Los Angeles, MONSTA X performed “Shoot Out” to kick off its set. Addressing the crowd, I.M remarked, “I know you guys can feel a little awkward about K-Pop.” Despite the language barrier, the members were met with loud cheers as they promised to make the night “K-Popping”.

The boys then showed stages of “DRAMARAMA” and “Be Quiet”.

After the show, leader Shownu shared his thoughts on the tour. “We are very glad to have finished our first set of the tour,” he said, adding that their fans helped them feel less nervous.

A Fabulous Interview with KIIS FM

MONSTA X members also met with 102.7 KIIS FM’s Chuey Martinez to discuss their experience in the United States, Christmas in South Korea, and more. The boys referred to their experience in the tour as “kind of like a dream”. They also shared the Christmas spirit with a little snippet of their holiday-themed song, “Lonely Christmas”.

The host also gave them a present to celebrate the occasion. When they unwrapped it, they were surprised with the elegantly designed bottle of kitchen cleaner. Thankfully, the host explained what it was before Wonho took a sip.

I.M told KIIS FM that 2019 is set to be a big year for MONSTA X. He revealed that they have some events coming up internationally and back home in South Korea. Watch the interview below.

MONSTA X also finished its show in San Francisco with great success, performing “Shoot Out”, “DRAMARAMA”, and “Fallin'”.

The boy group’s next stops will be Minneapolis on December 3, Boston on December 4, and Philadelphia on December 5.
