Ok so as I was watching the MV, teasers, and the hints. I got an idea of what is happening, it might not make sense for some, but i would like to share my thoughts with you guy's. Also, I'm going to include some ideas from a source (BFF/soulmate) that actually helped me a lot to understand the whole method. So, I hope you guy's will enjoy. ;)
I'm going to start with the teasers first. Shownu’s Oath: We put in our everything and vowed to abide by the following: First, find what has been lost. First, fill the empty heart. First, find the right path and keep forward down it. First, do not abandon each other. Then we become one to protect X-Clan. I’M’s Oath: We, Monsta X do solemnly swear, on our honor, lives, and everything that we have, to the X-Clan that we will defend ourselves.
So basically, I feel like Shownu and Changkyun are on different sides, or at least, have different beliefs regarding the clan, hence the different oaths. I looked at it piece by piece and came up with this: “We put in our everything and vowed to abide by the following:” - a reiteration, of the oath they took. Shownu is reminding them that they took a vow, and they must abide by it (He feels the need to remind them because there are certain members who don’t share the same belief. I’ll get to that later) “First, find what has been lost.” - A member is lost. In what aspect said member is lost, I’m still not sure. It brought my attention that the lost member could be Minhyuk. In the tracklist, a blonde member is missing, and Minhyuk and Wonho are currently the only blonde members. Also, the lips teaser. Those were Minhyuk’s lips and we have to remember that those photos weren’t technically teasers they were “hints.” If they were using Minhyuk’s lips as a hint, possibly implying that he is “lost”, and we all know that this comeback is “The Clan 2.5, Part 1 Lost” Someone, is definitely lost, and the hints and tracklist leads to Minhyuk being a likely candidate. Now, in what form that he’s lost (I’m just gonna use Minhyuk for an example but it may not be him) isn’t clear. Is he lost like they can’t find him? Or is he lost, like a lost cause. Maybe he’s lost his way. Maybe something happened to him, but somehow he’s not himself. To X-Clan, Minhyuk is lost. Maybe he betrayed them somehow. Maybe this “ritual” from the hints did something to him, changed him. Maybe he’s gotten involved with the wrong crowd (a different clan maybe, or maybe he’s not a part of a clan at all. Maybe he’s lost, and wandering on his own, who knows.) BUT anyways, Minhyuk (probably) is lost and Shownu, who believes strongly in the vow that they took, wants to find him, to save him in whatever way they can. “First, fill the empty heart.” - This is probably the part of the oath that’s the most unclear to me because “empty heart” could mean a lot of things. Like, okay I’m not sure exactly how to word this but this brings me back to feeling like something happened to him or someone did something to him and now his heart is “empty,” and he’s not himself anymore. Shownu wants to “fill” his heart, possibly implying bringing him back to them. Getting him back to normal. Maybe filling his heart, maybe he feels no one loves him, but anyways, to me it feels like something like that. Minhyuk’s heart has been emptied and Shownu wants to “fill” it back up, bring him back to them, “find what is lost.” “First, find the right path and keep forward down it.” - Okay I really don’t have too much to say on this line other than it possibly relating to Shownu’s own beliefs and his loyalty to the clan, and the vows they took. I’ll get to this a little bit more on the next two lines. “First, do not abandon each other.” - Okay these next two lines are the ones that really brought this theory together for me. He says “Do not abandon each other.” Which means exactly what it says, part of their oath was to not abandon each other, and Shownu strongly believes that and holds true to it. Despite Minhyuk being lost, and maybe even a traitor or who knows what, but either way Shownu does not want to abandon him. No matter what’s happened to him, Shownu won’t abandon him, just like he would not abandon any other member of the clan. He doesn’t care about the circumstances, he cares about his clan. Shownu taking this oath, and the way it’s worded definitely makes him seem like a leader figure among the clan, and as the leader, he probably feels some sort of responsibility towards ALL of the members, and if something happened to Minhyuk, maybe he feels responsible in some way. But whatever the case, he won’t abandon Minhyuk, or any other members of the clan. “Then we become one to protect X-Clan.” - “Become one” “Protect X-Clan.” That says it all for me. X-Clan is not just one individual person, they’re a clan and they need to work together in order to protect what they’ve built up, what they believe in, each other, etc. If a member is missing (Minhyuk?) then the clan can’t be one. There’s a piece missing and it’s incomplete. I’ll elaborate a bit more on this after talking about Changkyun’s oath because this line is what REALLY ties the two together or me. Okay now onto Changkyun’s oath. “We, Monsta X do solemnly swear, on our honor, lives, and everything that we have, to the X-Clan that we will defend ourselves.” - The thing that stands out to me the most is that Changkyun said “defend ourselves” while Shownu said “protect X-Clan.” which leads me to believe that Changkyun is against trying to find Minhyuk. I feel like Changkyun thinks that Minhyuk or whoever is lost for good. What way he’s lost we still don’t know, but it doesn’t matter, what matters is that he’s LOST and Changkyun doesn’t think he can be found. Changkyun believes that keeping themselves safe needs to take priority over finding someone who could be a danger to them or could just be hopeless. This makes me feel like there’s some sort of breaking apart of the clan, with Shownu leading one side, and Changkyun leading the other. That’s why there’s two oaths. The Oath of Shownu is the original oath, the oath of X-Clan while the Oath of I.M is the new oath, the one the he decided to follow when he realized he may not agree with what Shownu is doing or how he’s handling things, possibly making him the leader of his side "obviously we don’t know who else agrees with him, but I feel like it’ll definitely be slit in some way. With Minhyuk “gone” that leaves 6 members, so it can be split 50/50. Two members agree with Changkyun, two with Shownu. Two sides, two oaths. But who knows? WHO!!!!!
Now About the MV. It was very intresting how all the members were together at first fighting the soldiers, but something after happened. I feel they split themselves into two teams, but Minhyuk was with I.M and remember when I mentioned that I.M didn't want to find Minhyuk. Will i believe he did and he's now using him against Shownu, because why Minhyuk helped Hyungwon at first, and was so mad when he saw his face all bruised, then burned his house WHILE HE WAS THERE?!!! THEN, he gave him a potion that'll bring him back to live. That's my concern!! Also, why didn't Minhyuk and Hyumgwon burn the house together???? And remeber when i said that there is only Minhyuk and Wonho that are actually blonde. I think it all puts it together that I.M is actually using them both with him maybe to rescue the other members, because we saw how Kihyun is using crutches. and Jooheon......Will i believe there's something with him making that potion, which only 2 members used it Minhyuk and Shownu. And helping Shownu getting money for his dad's hospital loans . UGHHHHHHH ik it's a lot I'm so sorry, BUT plz tell me what do you think. And actually idk if this makes sense.........ANYWAYS just plz let me know if my theory was right, or if u have any concerns, or if u agree with me :D * I just edited this card. Cuz some people said that my MV Theory didn't really make sense, which I completely understand, cuz I also didn't think it did xD ANYWAYS......I suggest you check this card >>>>> http://www.vingle.net/posts/1588314?asrc=message <<<<<< cuz I really Liked the MV Theory there, and it did make sense xD * Love MONSTAX Love MONSTAX Love MONSTAX Love ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ . .
