Monster X took home the prestigious Next Generation Award at Thursday's Golden Disk Awards, sans two members.

The Starship Entertainment K-pop boy band debuted in 2015 and garnered much attention for their aggressive hip-pop style, resulting in multiple awards at year end ceremonies. The Golden Disk Awards, one of the most prestigious music award ceremonies in South Korea, recognized the group as a rising act in the industry, despite two members being absent from the ceremony.

I.M and Minhyuk both were absent from both Monsta X's acceptance speech and the group's performance at the Golden Disk Awards.

Rapper I.M has been absent from multiple Monsta X year-end performances due to an injury in December. Since hurting himself, I.M has been taking a break with plans to rejoin the group once he is recovered.

Minhyuk was absent after tearing a knee ligament while practicing on Jan. 17. He appeared at this week's recording for the "Idol Star Athletics Championship," but was unable to run. After continuous pain, he went to the hospital and discovered that he had torn the ligament.

Starship Entertainment announced prior to the Golden Disc Awards that Minhyuk was receiving treatment and may require surgery.

Monster X debuted in 2015 with the the EP "Trespass," and released multiple follow-up singles, including "Hero" and "Rush." Since debuting, the group has become extremely popular. They performed at KCON LA last summer.
