Hyungwon: We kicked off our world tour with a great start thanks to Monbebes. Most of all, I thank you for coming all the way here to show support. I thank you for letting me experience something as meaningful and happy as this. Just like I said yesterday, you guys became a big part of my life when you came into my life. I hope that Monbebes and MONSTA X continue to push and pull each other to share, produce, and listen to great music. Even though I’m unable to express my gratitude in words, I thank you for becoming the reason I’m alive.
MInhyuk: When we hold concerts, various thoughts and feelings come to me. Just like I said yesterday, I decided to become a person who receives happiness through you. I will become someone who can be happy by seeing your happy faces when you look at me. A fan once asked me what I think it is to be with the person I love, and I answered, ‘Being with someone you love is to share everything, whether it is happiness or sadness.’ I’m glad that I am able to share whatever I’m feeling on stage with you.
Wonho: My childhood dream was to become a Taekwondo athlete. For some reason, I was given a fateful chance to meet my members, great staff members, and fans. I am happier now than I’ve ever been. If I had become a Taekwondo athlete, I probably would have had to face victory and/or defeat every day. I would have been scared and suffered every day. But now, I’m a proud MONSTA X member and able to naturally enter into your lives. You guys are my dream and everything, and if it wasn’t for you, I would have died already. Without you, I’m just an empty shell, and I’m scared just by thinking that. I’m upset that I’m unable to know exactly what you go through, even though I’m happy and able to laugh because of you. I can’t quite put my feelings into words. I don’t know if I can keep a promise to be with you forever, but let’s make a promise anyways. I love you.
Joohoney: The thing about us being an empty shell without you really hit me hard. Even before our debut, I bet everything I had on MONSTA X. A lot of people ask me if we are actually close with each other, but we are. We are one person. We made our debut with a shared goal of making a debut, and with that, we were able to come this far. I think of myself as a birthday cake and you guys as the candles that light up my cake. I would like to say ‘happy birthday’ to each and every one of you. I thank you for allowing me to feel what love is. I wish I could hold you in my arms every day. I love you. Thank you.
I.M: First of all, I would like to thank everyone for coming all the way here. All seven of us came this far with a shared goal of making a debut, but just like Wonho said, without Monbebes, we are just an empty shell. That’s a good saying because it means that Monbebes and MONSTA X are one. By debuting together, we became one, and I was given another family. To be honest, I was very lonely after I dropped out of school. I felt empty while watching my friends go to school in the morning while I was at home. But now, I think it was a good thing that I dropped out. I was able to meet our members and Monbebes. I thank you once again.
Kihyun: I hope you know that what our members say on stage is all true. I’m a perfectionist. I’m able to show you only the things I feel fully prepared for. Because of that, I had a hard time singing after debuting. My voice wouldn’t come out whenever I was practicing alone. I can now sing thanks to you. Your influence is so big that it changed my personality. You call me the god of vocals. Even though I’m actually not nearly as good as you think, if I were to battle someone with the title of MONSTA X’s vocalist, I’m confident that I will win against anyone. Don’t think that we are saying these things only because we are on stage. Believe me when I say we are sincere. I will become someone who will sing in front of you with pride in his talents.
Shownu: These comments from our members made me realize once again how much we care about each other and Monbebes. Don’t you guys know our personalities well? You can tell who is having a bad day and sometimes, you wonder why we are acting the way we are. Even with those thoughts, 5000 of you still came here to see us and have loved us for several years. So how could we not love you guys back? Now that you’ve seen how much we care for one another and how much effort we put into our work, you can now rest while we are abroad. I will also personally do my best to become better. Thank you. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 I’m not crying! Are you? 😭
