monbebes! today was the day! 

I knew the day would come, but to be honest I wasn't sure when and it was totally unexpected!


Today, Monsta X had their first music show win. No one cares about this whole post, but I'll explain ๐Ÿ˜‰. In the KPOP/idol industry when a group or artist come out with a new song (has a comeback) they'll promote and perform their title track (single) on different music show programs throughout the week (different channels/networks). These promotions go on for about a month, give or take. They compete against other artists who have had a comeback around the same time. The criteria for a win includes number of digital streams, physical sales, m/v views, pre and post show voting, among others. Different music shows have different percentages for each criteria.

Monsta X debuted in May of 2015, and have had THREE COMEBACKS A YEAR, YES THREE. THREE ALBUMS A YEAR. And for each comeback promotion they had not yet gotten a music show win. They've been invited to the some of biggest award shows in Asia since their debut and had a succesful, sold out, world tour earlier this year. Nonetheless, a music show win in the industry is a marker of a succesful idol. The members claimed that a win wasn't something that they worried about, but of course it was something they yearned for. Each comeback we voted and worked hard, but for whatever reason it just wasn't happening.

In March, their title track "Beautiful" placed third
In June, their second title track of the year "Shine Forever" placed second
And now in November, their (hopefully) final title track of the year, "DRAMARAMA" has placed first!


Their reactions say it all ๐Ÿ’–

the boys thanked monbebes so humbly ๐Ÿ˜ซ  we don't deserve them


Monsta X is currently number two on the Billboard World Album Chart (Beautiful in March charted first, Shine Forever charted tenth). I will give it to Seventeen though, their physical sales and ranking on the digital charts is impressive. Interestingly, more than half of the top 15 albums on this chart are KPOP. BTS, not surprisingly, is still in the top five almost two months after Love Yourself's initial release. 

On Korea's biggest digital music service, Melon, Monsta X just doesn't seem to be able to chart. Within the initial release of their albums, the song will rank on the lowest ranks and only a few hours or a day at most ๐Ÿ˜ข. But today, after their first win; they trended number one on Twitter worldwide, were number one search on Melon, and they actually managed to jump 300+ places onto the number one spot!! I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE THAT I CAN CRY RIGHT NOW. 



Unfortunately, it was very short lived. It was still such a beautiful sight lol. This is only the beginning so I hope we can gain some more traction and make MX a force to reckoned with. I am trying to be patient, it took BTS three years to have their first win and look where they are now (I need to write a post on all their latest accomplishments- ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ domination). 

As of now, the DRAMARAMA m/v has an accumulated 7.2 million views (m/v was uploaded on both Official Starship and 1theK YouTube channel). 

I wish it was only up after their Beautiful release, but it seems it will be a bit of a wave with more ups and downs ahead. They're currently nominated for Best Male Group Dance Performance at the 2017 MAMAs (which are quickly approaching ๐Ÿ˜ฑ). They have good competition (including my other bias group๐Ÿ˜ฐ NCT 127, the multifandom struggle) so good luck to us!


Also can I say I was surfing Twitter looking at everyone's reaction and I know there are antis/haters. Monsta X is still relatively?? small and non problematic so I don't expect as much hate as the bigger groups get (EXO, BTS, WANNA ONE, TWICE, BP, ETC) but yikes, ppl are so nasty talking shit about their win. It's their first win?? let them have it people, your group has like several trophies. Let us breathe and wave our ๐Ÿ”ฎmonlights๐Ÿ”ฎ  lmao. Wayyy too toxic for me. Ugh peace and love peace and love. ✌๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’–✌๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’–


MONSTA X fighting! ๐Ÿ˜ญ✊๐Ÿฝ
