Fans And Nonfans Of MONSTA X Furious With “Access” For Disrespecting The Boys And Using BTS For Views

Published Categorized as Kpop

Media outlet Access was able to reunite fans and nonfans of MONSTA X with their recent interview with the group; they were the only Kpop act to perform at “iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2018” which was held at the popular Madison Square Garden in New York City.

What caused the outrage was simple, fans and nonfans weren’t happy by the way the interviewer did their job with MONSTA X and how she diverted attention from them to BTS when the interview was supposed to be about them.

In the first minute of the short interview, the interviewer asks MONSTA X about their feelings for performing at “iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2018,” Jooheon proceeds to say that they’re making history and the members nod in agreement, they’re the first Kpop group to perform at the yearly event.

However, the interviewer soon redirect the attention from them to BTS by mentioning their Grammy nomination, the members were asked if they had known about the Grammy nomination, the members were shocked and then congratulated BTS.

What made Kpop fans even more outraged was that the interview wasn’t properly titled, it was titled “Monsta X Are So Excited to Learn BTS Got A Grammy Nom” which seems to undermine the accomplishments of the group and refocus on BTS.

Fans of MONSTA X, as well as nonfans, flooded the comment section of the YouTube video to voice their opinions and criticism of the outlet for their interview.

As of this writing, the YouTube video of the interview has more than 9.6K dislikes.

  1. So disrespectful to the group and their accomplishments, don’t get me wrong I love BTS too but this wasn’t about them. If you are going to interview people for a living then you should learn the job first. Being disrespectful to the ones your interviewing tells me they need to find a job you can do correctly.

  2. I am a fan of Monsta X / MonBeBE. It’s bad enough that people that interview them, say their name wrong. And the fact that lady taking the attention away from Monsta X to BTS, so very disrespectful. They are the first K-Pop group to perform at Madison Square Garden. The interview should had been about them performing there.
