Monsta X took the West and the K-pop industry by storm when they announced that they would be dropping their first English album. ‘All About Love’ was released last year right in time for Valentine’s day and was commercially successful as it swept charts like Billboard and iTunes. Then in 2021, 16 of their songs made up the top 25 of Billboard. And as they continue to dominate the West, they have announced a second English album with the pre-release ‘One Day’.

Monsta X released the English song ‘One Day’ on September 10 on all major music streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, MelOn and more. They had released a lyric video at the same time and teased a music video. The bittersweet music video was released on September 11 KST and also includes the leader and the oldest member Shownu who is currently serving in the military.

'One Day' music video

‘One Day’ is an emotional song with an equally melodramatic music video with the members singing about heartbreak and “the feeling of knowing that it might feel better at some point, but you’re stuck in your current emotion and not able to realize that.” With the song hinting at what to expect from their next English album, Jooheon teased that Monsta X has prepared the different charms that they possess for this project.

Monsta X dropped a sophisticated music video with animated elements as they sing to their past selves going through rough patches. They also showed off their acting chops as they pour out their emotions while singing in different locations. The music video feels especially bittersweet when Shownu fades while Hyungwon is singing since the former is not with his group at the moment.

While the song is #39 on iTunes US, it is #13 on US iTunes Pop Chart and #11 on the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart. It also topped iTunes in countries like Paraguay, Argentina, the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia. Monsta X also came on Twitter to interact with Monbebes after the music video was released. Fans had a fun time as they tried to get noticed by the group and ended up trending Monsta X the whole night.

'So in love'

Monbebes made reaction memes on Twitter. One fan also tweeted, “This part in the MV when Shownu just... faded away broke me.” Another added, “Minhyuk's voice in one day sounds so so beautiful and his english has me so in love, my heart is melting listening to the song it's perfect.” One said, “Hyungwon, if you see this... i'm so proud of you. Thanks for being my light in the darkness. I love you forever,” to which Hyungwon replied. “Jooheon you >>>>>>>>>> i love you very much, just know it,” commented another. One posted, “I'm Changkyun explaining yourself. You look so handsome.” Kihyun also replied to a fan who asked him about his see-through outfit, “Ki explain this.”
