Starship Entertainment’s idol survival show “No.Mercy” has ended, and seven of the competitors made the cut to join a new idol group.

“No.Mercy” ended on February 11, with the announcement that the seven winners will debut as Monsta X. Immediately after the announcement, Starship Entertainment opened up official Facebook and Twitter accounts for Monsta X.

Monsta X’s final lineup is made up of two rappers and five singers.

Jooheon, IM, Shownu, Wonho, Hyungwon, Minhyuk, and Kihyun will be members of the group, but Seokwon and #GUN, a fan favorite, were gut during the final episode of “No.Mercy.” He had previously promoted with Jooheon, Shownu, and Wonho as NUBOYZ, and is the only one of the four not to make Monsta X’s planned lineup.

The final episode of “No.Mercy” came down to nine of the thirteen trainees who appeared on the show to compete to join Starship Entertainment’s next idol group. The show began with twelve competitors, and rapper IM joined the competition later on.

Comments on the official Facebook page and final episode of “No.Mercy” express disdain from international fans about the final lineup.

Starship Entertainment has yet to announce Monsta X’s debut date, but released a music video for one of “No.Mercy’s winning songs, “Interstellar.” “Interstellar” is sung by Jooheon, Hyungwon, and IM, and features Yella Diamond.

Along with appearing on “No.Mercy,” several Monsta X members have featured on songs of popular Starship Entertainment artists. Jooheon featured on San E and Hyorin’s collaboration “Coach Me,” as well as an earlier release by Mad Clown, while Kihyun featured on SoYou and Giriboy’s “Pillow.”


International fans can watch the entire series of “No.Mercy” on 1TheK’s YouTube channel.
