South Korean boy group Monsta X proved that they are the K-pop “Hero” of their Filipino fans when they rocked the stage during their first fan meeting in Manila held at SM North EDSA Skydome last November 27.

Presented by PULP Live World, the fan meeting was indeed an awesome and unforgettable night for Pinoy “Monbebes” (Monsta X fandom name) who showed full support for their “oppas”: Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Jooheon, Wonho, Hyungwon and I.M.

Before the concert started, Monsta X had a brief press conference where they answered questions from the press and gave a message to their fans. Host Dasuri Choi translated some of the questions for the k-pop group while their answers were translated by a Korean staff.

Monsta X gave a message to their Filipino Monbebes:
