  1. I saw somewhere that the eldest member is Wonho. He is actually born 1992, and his full name is Lee Hoseok. Can you double check that information, because what I know is from Facebook – the Bulgarian fan group.

  2. All members of Monsta x are Korean (born and grew up in) only IM has lived abroad in the USA for three years. As for former groups shownu was supposed to debut with got7 but if you watch no mercy you get the whole story. And as far is I know nu boyz etc were only projects so they don’t count as full groups (as far as I know anyway) I would really recommend new monbebes to watch the whole no.mercy series only be aware your heart will break a few times.

    • I (We) have watched No.Mercy, I’m still incredibly bitter about Minkyun and I won’t ever get over that. [Never mind that he is a trainee at WM entertainment/or that I am a member of Monbebe and super pleased with the current line-up, it doesn’t soften the bitterness I feel]

      As for their nationalities we need a source that they are in fact korean. You’ll notice that there are several idols who everyone assumes are korean and we don’t list it because we have no source. The could also have a Japanese, Chinese or even Pakistani parent, like Taichi from Blanc7 who was born and raised in Japan but his mother is Korean. ~James

  3. They are all korean. You could also mention that IM is former member of Nu’Bility and
    Shownu, Wonho and Jooheon of NuBoyz

    • Nubility and NuBoyz never debuted – we don’t mention groups that never debuted, just like no one considers Hyunseung a former member of Big Bang even though he was a trainee with Big Bang, and on the program for their debut. As for the nationalities – do you know their parents’ heritages, because I certainly don’t.

    • We don’t do the self cam videos as part of their MV lists because the company doesn’t classify them as MVs – we also don’t have Amen here either for that reason. Though Wonho has been slaying my bias list for forever hahahaha
      ~ Manwon^^

  4. Ok stupid question but isnt Minhyuk a member of BToB?? I just started to take interest in Monsta X and seeing the comparison and all idek…😂🙈 Anyone wanna clear this up with me bc as far as i heard Minhyuk is still a part of Monsta X but he looks like BToB

    • Minhyuk is a very very very very common name and Lee is one of the most common family names. Monsta X’s Minhyuk and BTOB’s Minhyuk are most definitely two very different people. Neither group has had any line-up changes since they debuted. ~James

    • I know right? Some people might judge them for being ‘heavy’ but at least they’re healthy! Some people from TOP media worry me because I wonder if they’re eating enough (All of Teen top are quite worrying and quite a few from up10tion scare me)

  5. Hey, I thought I.M. was a former member of Nu’bility. But I’m not sure about it, can you confirm this?

    • Nu’Bility never debuted nor did they ever release any music. They did go around and perform to try to promote the group but left. We do not count that as being a former member because there are way to many people that have been in similar situations to try and keep track of. ~James

  6. Omg. I just realize that I.M and I are in the same year. But hes an oppa to me. Omg I’m so happy! Hahahaha I don’t even know why I’m happy. Either because I.M is my favorite or hes an oppa to me. But I’m happy. And I really love his sense of humour. I watch No Mercy episode 8 which is when I.M entered. I felt bad for I.M and the others. I.M is like the victim because he entered a day Minkyun got eliminated. And the other members really dislike him. But I’m glad they have debuted and they get along really well. I feel bad for the others original trainees that got eliminated but I know, there must be a reason why they dont get to debut. And I’m sure all of them will work harder in the future. For the trainees that got eliminated, God has a better plans for all of you. Have faith, oppas! Hwaiting! No matter what, I’ll always support all of you through thick and thin. Be happy, and stay healthy! Get a lot of rest if you can. Take care!

    • I.M is my 2nd bias (but I’m kind of sure he’s going to be the 1st really soon) and I just realized that he’s younger than me only with 4 months but we have different birth years.. I really hoped that he was older than me TT TT I just realized that he was the maknae of the group so I rushed to this site and had my hopes crushed :< Whyy.. TT TT

      • Don’t worry! I think I have less then 5 bias who is older than me (My #1 is only 2 month older than me :D) and it’s kinda a Korean fangirl rule that even if a handsome guy is younger than you you can still call him “Oppa” 🙂 – Katie

    • A) Hope you don’t mind, I just fixed the typo you pointed out for you with a quick edit ~
      B) GAH!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!! I super appreciate this!!!! I was dying not being able to add Wonho’s name since I didn’t have an official source, even though I personally believed/knew his name is Ho Seok!!!!!! It is so great to have the source!!!! Can you tell my excitement level? Hahaha, Wonho is totally my bias in this group ~ hahahaha
      Thank you again!
      ~ Manwon^^

  7. Hey there ^^ I have a question… I recently rewatched No Mercy and I am still very sad that Kwangji and Yoonho had to left… Do you maybe know what happened to them after the Show? Are they still Trainees? Or will they also debut? (I would really love to see them as a Rapper-Duo in another band ^^ Their 1:1 Battle was sooo amazing) I would be grateful for any informations ^^/)

  8. Hyungwon is just so cute.. kinda flower boy but he just so tall
    i tought that he was the maknae but I.M is..

  9. hyungwon so charismatic and acctractive guy, also visual of the group, can dance and act very well

  10. Hello! According to their MelOn showcase video, Shownu’s real name is Son Hyunwoo and I.M’s real name is Lim Changkyun. Those two introduced themselves as such at 5:29 and at 9:30, respectively.
    The link to the video is here:
    Also, if you watch the video, you can see that the members wrote their profiles on a board and it says that:
    Shownu – 181cm, 74kg
    Wonho – 178cm, 73kg
    Minhyuk – 178.8cm, 64kg
    Kihyun – 176cm, 64kg
    Hyungwon – 181cm, 65kg
    Jooheon – 177cm, 68kg
    I.M – 175cm, 65kg
    I hope you update their profiles now that they have said it themselves. ^^

    • Oh my goodness! You are amazing! The link, and the information all nicely there! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
      ~ Manwon^^

      • You’re welcome! I’m just very excited that they have finally debuted and I know that some people (such as myself) really look to your site for information on the idols they like.

  11. Jooheon is the first member whose debut teaser photo has been released
    p.s. I love the logo

    • Mari, thank you for letting us know, and while we appreciate your comments, we have edited this post to avoid spoilers for the show. James and I (I am unsure if Katie has been keeping up with No.Mercy), have been trying to watch the show with subtitles, so we don’t miss any of what they are talking about, and we can only assume that other fans of the show are the same way ~ so we edited your comment to avoid spoilers, even our own page has huge warnings at the top for spoilers, so we hope you can understand why we’ve edited your page. Since we now know who is in the final line-up, that page has been changed accordingly ~ and though we’ve edited this one comment, we hope that you continue to show your love for the the No.Mercy boys as they continue on as Monsta X
      ~ Manwon^^
