Radiating power right away, the boy group started the showcase with their sub-title track “FLOW”.

“We were excited as much as we were nervous. We’ve been waiting for this performance as much as MONBEBE had been, so we prepared well,” the group said.

They also remarked, “It’s been seven months since we made a comeback, and we’ve made seven fantastic songs to match the name FANTASIA X.”

The group also proudly introduced the various versions of their mini-album and introduced the tracks in detail. According to the boys, the new album “is meant to unfold a new world in the future.”

Regarding the title track “FANTASIA”, they said, “It’s a song that you can’t get out of your head once you hear it. It is highly addictive.” MONSTA X then heated up the scene by showing off their choreographies for the track, including Kihyun’s solo dance.

Performances and Corners

Noting that it had been a long time since they last conducted promotional activities in Korea, the group continued on by showing performances that they had wowed the global music scene with.

Coming from their first full-length English album, they performed the song “YOU CAN’T HOLD MY HEART”. The boys also talked about behind-the-scenes stories of their various U.S activities, including successfully charting at number five in Billboard 200 and participating in the Jingle Ball Tour.

There was also a Q&A session held where they answered questions directly received from Monbebe. Addressing their fans, the group said, “This album shows the most beautiful and brilliant moments of life, and we’ll try to make sure that both the future and this activity will be beautiful.”

“If Monbebe gets energy from listening to this album, we’ll be satisfied with that. We want to show you this performance as soon as possible in front of you,” they added.

The stage that marked the end of the showcase was none other than the title track “Fantasia”. Once again, the group showed off their strong presence with explosive yet cool energy and powerful movements.

As a result, MONSTA X successfully amassed over 730,000 viewers and 2.2 billion hearts for the showcase, showing their true power as global artists and marking a new personal best.

Meanwhile, the group will continue their colourful album promotional activities this May 28 through the debut stage of “Fantasia” on Mnet’s M Countdown.
