The South Korean boy band Monsta X formed by group members Wonho, Minhyuk, Hyungwon, Jooheon, Kihyun, Shownu, and I.M. have quickly become world-renowned acts after arriving on the scene in 2015. Fellow K-pop group BTS (aka the Bangtan Boys) with members V, J-Hope, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, and Suga have also become household names on a global scale after their rise to prominence taking place just last year. Both bands took to the stage during the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMAs) in South Korea, along with performances by IZ*ONE, MAMAMOO, NU'EST W, Stray Kids, TWICE and Wanna One.
The Mnet Asian Music Awards kicked-off their tour of Asia earlier this week in South Korea. Japan was the second stop on the award shows map with Hong Kong being the third and final destination for the show.
In the video above, Monsta X can be seen performing their hit "Shoot Out" following their performances of songs "Jealousy" and "Sparks." The group appears on the illuminated stage dressed in all black with shiny golden-glove covered hands accenting their live set. Monsta X's perfectly choreographed performance was concluded with the glove-wearers appearing on stage with the seven-man group in matching black ensembles as the crowd went wild.
As for BTS, in the video below, the K-pop group closed out the Japan-located rendition of the multi-day award gathering with a performance of their hit song, "Anpanman." Their performance began with each member featuring their own special graphics on the big screen before a giant rocket is constructed out of the paneling on the stage. The group then rises from below the stage in futuristic garments to rap their track in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans.
