The Second World Tour “The Connect” concert, which was held on August 25th and 26th at the Seoul Olympic Handball Stadium, turned out to carry its own meaning for the seven members of Monsta X. “On a world tour concert, I realized the reasons why I became a singer and stayed in this field. Also gave me a satisfying conclusion that I made the right choice,“ Jooheon said.
Another Monsta X member, Minhyuk added that this concert performance became a place for him to grow as a singer.
“This world tour concert was a good opportunity so that we could continue to grow (one step further) as a singer. For the first time (since debut), I found my appearance on stage turned out to be charming. Previously, I never thought I could be in the spotlight like that when monitoring my stage actions,” said Minhyuk.
Minhyuk also gave an overview of Monsta X’s career like a growing tree. The careers of Wonho, Minhyuk, Hyungwon, Jooheon, Kihyun, Shownu, and I.M are likened to seeds that have now grown into seeds. “We don’t know how far we can go, but we are trying to grow steadily. Now the members look more relaxed and mature on the stage, and our faces even look more handsome,” Shownu said.
