It was supposed to be just a regular Thursday night. I was minding my own business, listening to my playlist of songs from the reality show “NO.MERCY”. I was missing my boys.
Thursday used to be the day I would catch up on that week’s episode of “NO.MERCY”. But since the show ended over two weeks ago, I have had to rely on music and YouTube replays to warm my cold heart on Thursday nights.
Until last night. Like manna from heaven, a new video was released! Glory be, I had something new from my boys!
It’s the song called “Hieut”, which was a performance by the Nochang team from the 4th debut mission on the show.
The team ended up not winning, and I can’t say anything about that because I loved the other team just as much. Yes, I know. Way to be neutral. Sorry. I liked them all! It’s tough to be a fangirl!
Anyway, here is the new video. It includes members of the new group called Monsta X (please don’t get me started on that name): Shownu, Hyungwon and Minhyuk. And features trainees who didn’t make the new group: Yoonho and #Gun. It was so nice seeing those two boys again!
The song is a total tune! Everyone is highlighted. Hyungwon and Minhyuk sing so soothingly in their smooth lower tones. Yoonho and #Gun each have amazing rap solos. The coaches make solid appearances, especially Junggigo, who kills it at the end with his life-giving vocals. I love his voice. Love it!
And, let me just say, if I was strapped to a chair and forced to watch the seconds between 1:15 and 1:42 played on loop for the rest of my life, I would be super okay with that torture. Shownu! Whew! Where’s a fan when you need one?
I’ll be playing this song on repeat for the next few weeks, I’m sure. Just like I played the Giriboy team song, called “O (Young)”, to absolute death. Aagh! Wonho and Kihyun! And I.M.! Be still my heart!
If you haven’t seen the video by the Giriboy team, the winning group of the 4th debut mission episode, here it is. It starts getting amazing right around 0:45. Okay. So I’m a little I.M. biased. 🙂
And here’s the final winning group’s video for their song called “Interstellar”, from the finale episode of “NO.MERCY”. It features Monsta X members Jooheon, Hyungwon and I.M. And, yes, I’m obsessed with I.M. in this video too. His voice is something special.
I can’t wait for these boys to debut. I fell in love with all of them during “NO.MERCY” and I know, if they keep doing music like this, they will climb up my bias list in no time.
Shownu already has a running start. Sighhhhhhh. So, did anyone find me a fan yet?
For the record, I’m sad #Gun wasn’t chosen too, but I think great things are in store for him. And Yoonho is still so young. He’d make a great visual/rapper/dancer in any boy group, so I think he has a bright future as well. Seokwon was a doll and if he doesn’t debut through Starship Entertainment soon, some other company should pick him up. Like right now! And Kwangji, Yoosu and Minkyun were adorable and I look forward to seeing what’s in store for them too. I wish Monsta X could have 13 members!
Did you watch the show? What did you think of the final group line-up? Are you going to support Monsta X (it gets less cringey the more I type it)? Do you already have a bias? Let me know!
