During their much-anticipated debut at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour 2018, MONSTA X took some time out to chat with Soompi about how they’ve changed over the years, converting new fans, and touring with artists they love.

The seven member group was just on the heels of a first appearance at Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, before they took the stage for a second show in San Francisco. But for the next week, this would be their lives: sharing a stage with artists they love – from Camilla Cabello to The Chainsmokers.

To MONSTA X, it was an opportunity for the group to win over a new crowd. “At first, people looked at us with fascination, but by the third song, people were cheering for us,” Kihyun says, “It felt good.”
