THROWBACK: When MONSTA X’s instant messaging sheds light on the kind of idol he wants to be
We go back to the time when MONSTA X member IM opened up about acceptance of himself, the kind of artist he wants to be and more. Scroll down to see what he said.
We return to February 2021 when the South Korean singer and member of MONSTA X IM spoke to Arena Homme Plus magazine and shed light on the acceptance of his real self. Speaking about his debut solo album Duality, he said, “The songs on MONSTA X have a powerful sound that catches the audience’s attention, but my own vibe has more of a groovy feeling,” he explained. “I am generally a calm person. For my solo tracks, I ended up doing songs that reflected my personality and who I am. The lyrics are metaphorical instead of direct, and I have tried to express the word “you” in a more personal way. “
IM explored the theme of duality throughout the album. Describing his thoughts on the concept, he shared, “Everyone has two sides to themselves. I don’t think I have to balance the side of me that the audience sees and the real me. At first I felt like these sides were very far apart and worried about that, but now I don’t care.
He continued, “Whenever I don’t understand what kind of person I am, all I have to do is admit it. If I don’t think I’m cute, but my fans see something cute in me, that’s part of me too.
When asked what kind of artist he wanted to be, IM replied, “I thought about it a lot, but realized that thoughts like, ‘I’m going to be that kind of artist’ really bind me. . I want to make songs based on how I feel at the time, and I want to release what I want, love what I want, and be true to who I am.
