I love when fandoms support not only the group they stan but other groups too. Like the way K-lovelinus cheered on for MX and how K-Monbebes cheered for lovelyz too when both groups had promotions together. Even the artists thanked the fans for being really supportive of one another. I love it. I wish there was more of this in all fandoms.
I’ve been into k-pop since 2009, and I would just like to take a moment to praise the Monbebe fandom. I’m not that much into Monsta X, but their fans are honestly so kind! A lot of my third gen fandoms have a lot of drama, and it’s just to be able to retreat to Monbebes and I’m always surprised at how calm everything always seems to be. I have a feeling that Monbebes will probably be third gen’s Shawols.
Monbebes are definitely one of the better fandoms out there, but this whole issue surrounding Monsta X and their first win is starting to get irritating. It’s almost impossible for anyone to even bring up Monsta X without Monbebes spamming about how Monsta X don’t have a first win yet, or how underrated they are. I only got into k-pop in 2016, but I promise you, they are NOT underrated. When I was getting into k-pop, I saw plenty about Monsta X all around. They’ve had a sold out world tour, their Japan debut was successful enough to reach the top of the charts, they have their own lightstick and a concert DVD – which isn’t as common as you think – their album went straight to No. 1 on Billboard’s World Albums and Monbebes even managed to temporarily beat EXO-Ls when voting on the Mwave music chart. Monsta X ARE popular and the reasons why they haven’t yet had a first win have been discussed before. The fact that they’ve already achieved so much in just two years is admirable, and they still have a long career ahead of them. Just keep supporting them, Monbebes! Be patient – your boys will get their first win soon!
