It's been a long time coming, but Monsta X have finally snagged their first ever music show win!
On the November 14 episode of The Show, Monsta X's new single "Dramarama" went head to head against EXID's "DDD" and Block B's "Shall We Dance" for the trophy, and after some nervous moments, the boys managed to come out on top with a total score of 7400.
All the members were clearly in shock of their win, and it took a few moments for the whole group to realise that they had achieved No.1 on a music show. Leader Shownu tried to thank everyone with a speech but became too emotional to speak, thus Jooheon took the reins and said “This is our first time winning an award on a music show! We’ve won after finishing our first world tour. Firstly, we’re so, so grateful. Thank you to all the Monbebe who support us!”
Given how Monsta X had yet to taste music show success in the two years since their 2015 debut, their first win at The Show meant a great deal to the group and their fans. In fact, the win was so exciting for the boys and their fans that the hashtag #MonstaX1stWin started trending worldwide on Twitter!
A huge, huge congrats to Monsta X for finally winning their first ever music show award! May this be the first of many to come!
