MONSTA X Minhyuk in a Relationship for 7 Years? Here's What the Idol Confessed during Appearance on "Kim Yeong Cheol's Power FM"
On Nov. 23, MONSTA X made a guest appearance on the SBS POWER FM's radio show "Kim Yeong Cheol's Power FM."
During the broadcast, the K-pop group and radio show host Kim Yeong Cheol discussed various topics including the achievements of the band over the past seven years since their debut.
Regarding their accomplishments, Kim asked, "Do you think MONSTA X managed to dominate the K-pop scene?"
I.M answered, "Well, I don't know about dominating the K-pop scene but we definitely left a footprint in the field." As their response to I.M's answer, the other MONSTA X members gave him a thumbs up, implying that they approve his answer.
Later on, Kim Yeong Cheol commented that since the boy group has been in the entertainment industry for almost seven years, he assumes that the members have all become "masters" at answering all kinds of questions, even the difficult ones.
He continued, "So, let me ask you something that probably isn't easy to answer. I heard that you are currently in a relationship, Minhyuk. Is that right?"
MONSTA X Minhyuk quickly replied, "Yes, that's right. I am," surprising not only the radio host but also his bandmates.
Since Kim Yeong Cheol was left speechless by Minhyuk's straightforward confession, the idol laughed and explained, "What I meant was, I've been in a relationship with our fandom MONBEBE for the last seven years."
Upon hearing MINHYUK's clarification, the radio host couldn't help but burst into laughter.
The name "MONBEBE" was given to MONSTA X's fans back in 2015, the same year the boy group made their debut. It is a French term and means "my baby" (mon is "my" and bebe is "baby") when translated to English.

Minhyuk said that they decided to have a strong title track for this comeback as they wanted to show that they still have a "powerful vibe."
Joohoney, who co-produced "Rush Hour," commented that he wanted to bring the same energy as their debut song "Trespass" through their new title song. But, "Rush Hour" is more like a combination of the MONSTA X at the time of their debut and the MONSTA X that has matured since then.
