  1. 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

  2. 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.
      ~ Manwon^^

    • 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^^

  3. 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)

  4. 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

  5. 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^^

  6. 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 ^^/)

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

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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^^

    • While we appreciate your enthusiasm, James and I (Katie has been very busy recently, so I am not sure if she has been watching No.Mercy) have both been trying to watch the show as it appears with sub-titles on the youtube channel, attempting to avoid spoilers – and LOEN has not made that easy! So, in case anyone else who uses our site is doing the same thing we have edited your comment to avoid spoilers for other fans of the show, and though the No.Mercy page has been updated, we have a spoiler warning there as well ~ we hope you understand our reasoning for editing your comment! And please do continue to comment here on our site, and support the boys of No.Mercy as they continue forward as Monsta X
      ~ Manwon^^

  11. Shin Ho Seok is Wonho. Just write his name in and his pictures come up, he is an ulzzang model. All of his information is on his café

    • We have been told this before, thank you though, for letting us know.
      We here at kpopinfo114 stick only to information we can find on official sites (official sites being: official daum cafes, official facebooks, official twitter, official instagrams, news articles, official company sites, and straight from the members mouths) Though we would like add his name, unfortunately until we can find it on an official site, we can’t add this information. Again, thank you for adding. We hope you can understand why we can’t add the information here – we try really hard to bring as accurate, and official of information as possible to our kpopinfo114 family ~ and it can be frustrating for us too sometimes like with Wonho, when we are 99.999% sure of his real name, but since we haven’t found it on an official source, we just can’t add it
      ~ Manwon^^

  12. Hello! I see you guys have recently added I.M
    I don’t know much about him but I found out he was part of a group called Nu’bility.

    I’ve been trying to find more information on it but I’ll send you the links I have

    That’s the first video on their youtube channel.
    He’s the one on the bottom right.

    Since Special K Ent isn’t the biggest company I could hardly find things but here is a tumblr site that seems very informative but I guess you guys should check it yourself.
    It seems pretty accurate but I’ll let you decide.

    According to their blog, his real name is Lim Changkyun.
    O Blood type and he has specialty in rapping and English. His Birthdate is January 26th, 1996.

    NU’bility is a disbanded group now I think. Or all the previous members have left.

    • Thank you for sending the links! We always appreciate it ~ unfortunately for the boys of Nu’Bility the group never even got to debut – and because of this I can’t find any official sources that verify this information at all ~ though I do know he was born in 96…I need to change that on his profile…also because Nu’Bility never debuted I can’t even add that he was a former member for the group
      ~ believe me though, I am an avid fan of the show No.Mercy, and I am always trying to find the most accurate up-to-date info on them that I can!
      ~ hopefully soon we’ll have more info for him! Thank you again for passing on the information and the links!

    • We never heard his full name come out during the show (if it’s in the show we must have just not heard it and will gladly add it – Wonho is my bias within the No.Mercy boys!) but we only add information here if it comes from an official source (official daum, official facebook, official twitter, official instagram, official company site, straight from a members mouth), if we can’t find it from one of these sources we don’t add the information – this is simply because we want to add the most accurate information possible for you and everyone who visits here ~ we hope you understand ~ if you have a link you could share for this information that would be great! So please do send the link along to us! And thank you again for sharing this with us!
      ~ Manwon^^

    • Thank you for letting us know ~ unfortunately because we don’t have an official source for that info we can’t add it ~ if you have an official source where that is from, please send the link to us! We would love to add it if we can confirm it from an official site
      ~ Manwon^^
