Only 3 out of 6 MONSTA X members have renewed their contract with Starship Entertainment, the others still don't have an answer
This year marks 7 years since MONSTA X's debut, with this also comes the end of the idols' contract with Starship Entertainment. But only half of the group has renewed their contract, what will happen to the rest?
MONSTA X debuted in 2015, after the boys who were still Starship Entertainment trainees went through the reality show 'No.Mercy' and earned a place in the idol group. At first, the group managed to catch the public's attention with their first mini album 'Trespass'.
MONSTA X's story has had its ups and downs since then, as after the first comeback Changkyun and Minhyuk suffered injuries that put the group on temporary hiatus. The public seemed to have forgotten them in a certain way. But they came back and little by little they continued to build their way in the K-Pop industry.
MONSTA X and its members are a faithful proof of perseverance and never giving up, in 2019 the group also suffered the definitive discharge of one of its members, Wonho had to leave the group due to defamation. Although his innocence was proven, he no longer returned to the other boys.
Since then, MONSTA X was made up of 6 members. This year marks 7 years since the group's debut and this means that their contract with Starship has ended. Only 3 of the members have already renewed their contract, the others have not yet. What will happen to the group?
Only MONSTA X's Shownu, Kihyun, and Hyungwon have renewed their contract with Starship Entertainment
According to K-Media, only three members of MONSTA X have renewed their contract with Starship Entertainment. Shownu, Kihyun and Hyungwon chose to continue with the agency in the future, it is not yet known for how many more years. On the other hand, Minhyuk, Joohoney, and I.M still don't have an answer. This is making MONBEBE nervous with the uncertainty of the group's future.
It only remains to wait to know the response of the remaining members, MONBEBE is also concerned about the well-being and conditions of each MONSTA X idol, in the end they all deserve to be heard.
What will happen to MONSTA X if the other members do not renew their contract with Starship?
Some K-Pop groups continue together even though they no longer belong to the same agency, as is the case with 2PM, for example. So even if Jooheon, Minhyuk, and Changkyun were to leave the company, they could come to an agreement to continue in MONSTA X. On the other hand, there is also a possibility that the group will disband, which would be very sad for the fans.
But also the members of the group deserve to choose and look for new horizons if that is what they want. And in the end the decision is not made yet, so also MONBEBE is hopeful that in fact they all renew their contracts and continue for a few more years together.
We hope the best for MONSTA X and its members, the group has achieved great achievements and has its own style that has left its mark on both K-Pop and many fans. Maybe we'll have them for a few more years, maybe they'll all continue on different paths. But we will always be happy for the existence of MONSTA X.
