Monsta X (몬스타엑스), is a K-Pop band featuring Wonho, Minhyuk, Hyungwon,Jooheon, Kihyun, Shownu and I.M. They're dope.
Since forming in 2014, they've been on multiple world-tours and have appeared on several reality TV Shows. Their album The Clan Pt. 2.5: The Final Chapter, made it to the top of US World charts shortly after it's release.
On July 31st, 2018, they made an exclusive appearance at the AT&T THANKS Sound Studio in downtown San Francisco to an audience of some of their biggest fans. The earliest fans were lined up outside of the building seven hours before the interview was set to begin.
Appearing to thunderous applause, they took the stage with Gabby Diaz of WiLD 94.9.
The interview began with the basics: how were they enjoying their time in San Francisco? They had just stopped by the Google Campus earlier that same day and were recognized by some people there.
While discussing their concert for the following night, they made sure to let the audience know that they were the ones that make their concerts so special. More thunderous applause ensued. Their concert actually sold out within the first four minutes of the tickets going on sale.
As the interview progressed, Gabby asked them if there were any American artists they would consider collaborating with. "Justin Bieber," one fan yelled from the audience. Shawn Mendes' name was also floated.
The entire interview was fun and light-hearted, but nobody could've seen the ending coming. Gabby said her goodbyes and as fans expected the house lights to come up, she said she had one last thing planned. At that moment, E-40's Bay Area hit "Tell Me When To Go" began playing and Monsta X was asked to show off their legendary dance skills. To which they politely obliged.
