Fusing traditional Korean music with their brand of K-Pop, MONSTA X presented a uniquely appealing stage at the MBC Gayo Daejejeon, December 31, 2020.
MONSTA X follows their fellow Starship Entertainment boy group CRAVITY in an electrifying sequence of performances together with the traditional Korean drum music courtesy of the TAGO ensemble.
As soon as CRAVITY finished their performance, the traditional sound from percussions heralded the entrance of the six-member boy group. As the accompaniment transitions into a fusion of hip-hop and electronic sounds, the members – Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Jooheon, and I.M – began with an intro dance number. Even their respective costumes work following the theme of their performance stage: a modernized take on the men’s hanbok, in black and gold prints flowing past their waists like a cape, with fitted pants of mostly gold designs.
