This is Starship Entertainment.
We once again express deep gratitude to the MONBEBE around the world who continuously show love and support for MONSTA X.
Starship Entertainment recently renewed contracts with five of our agency artist MONSTA X’s members Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, and Jooheon. As all six members still have unchanging affection for MONSTA X and MONBEBE, we have come to a mutual agreement for I.M to continue together for future group activities.
Based on the loyalty and trust we have built up with each other, we will put in our full effort for the members’ future activities to shine even brighter. We promise to provide full and systematic support.
We have had sincere discussions with I.M, but our exclusive contract with him will unfortunately come to an end. We express deep gratitude for I.M’s hard work, efforts, and devotion over the years. We will cheer on and support I.M’s future activities and his new path.
MONSTA X has concluded their break of one month. We are preparing with the members in order for them to greet you with diverse group and individual activities.
We ask that you continue to cheer on, send warm encouragement, and support the six members of MONSTA X.”
All 5 members have renewed
Only I.M will be leaving Starship but he’ll continue being a MonstaX member
1. Changkyun is their low register rapper so it’ll be impossible to replace him, that’s why he’s staying in the group
Changkyun is doing what he wants and MonstaX are doing whatever they want, Monbebe fighting
2. I’m another group’s fan, but congrats on the full group
3. The notice doesn’t guarantee any full-group activities and it’s worded in such an ambiguous way with lots of things to discuss about… But at least we got 5 of them to renew right? But they really dragged this for so longㅠ I joined the fandom and fell so hard for them, but because of their contract renewal being uncertain, I grew further from them… ㅠ Anyways, congrats on renewing the contract and let’s end this hiatus
4. I’m a late fan of them and I thought I wouldn’t be able to see them as a full-group again, what a reliefㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
5. Of course, when a group is full, they’re the most beautiful
6. I don’t know why they’re doing this 5 + 1 deal, but it seems like it’s a good thing from reading the comments? Congrats! They’re likable
7. Oh Minhyuk and Jooheon are both renewing, this is the first article they’re releasing about it, I was so worried, what a relief
8. Nowadays, even when you’re in different companies, you can still continue to promote as a group, I knew that at least 1 person would leaveㅋㅋㅋ
9. I don’t know if their 5+1 deal will decrease the amount of group activities, or they’ll keep promoting as a full group and that one person will be on and off? We’ll know if we keep watching them in the future
10. They promoted just fine with ShownU wasn’t there… And most of them are coming back from the hiatus soon
