'Monsta X: The Dreaming': K-pop group announces movie ahead of English album
Monsta X to have back-to-back albums, movie and tour. The movie titled ‘Monsta X: The Dreaming’ will be released on December 9 and 11 in theatres
Monsta X seems to be busier than ever in 2021. Not only are they about to make their second comeback of the year, but there are also plans of an English album, an American tour, and now a movie. In the first half of 2021, Monbebes (Monsta X’s fandom) were fed quite well with the ‘Wanted’ and ‘Gambler’ era. However, a week ago, the K-pop group announced that they would be now releasing a Korean language album in November.
Fans seem to be getting back-to-back announcements in October. In fact, a week before announcing ‘No Limit’, which is Monsta X’s 10th K-pop mini-album, they set the date for their sophomore English album. The boy group took 2020 by storm when they released their first English album ever ‘All About Love’. The album was an instant hit and dominated several charts including Billboard. Well, there were rumors that they would be coming back with a second English album, and it looks like they are.

‘The Dreaming’ is set to be released on December 10. The 10-track English album consists of their recent pre-released single ‘One Day’. And Monsta X are going all out for it. K-pop promotions are quite different from the West as idols go on music shows and perform their title tracks. But for their second English album, the boys are taking a different route, as they have decided to release a movie of the same name. Titled ‘Monsta X: The Dreaming’, the movie will be released before the album release, on December 9 and 11 in theatres. The film will be available in more than 70 countries worldwide.
With the genre of event movies becoming quite popular, more and more artists are releasing documentary movies about their journey like the Jonas Brothers and Blackpink. Similarly, ‘Monsta X: The Dreaming’ is a documentary-style movie that will chronicle the path of Monsta X over the last six years since their debut in 2015. It will include brand new footage of their time in the USA during the ‘All About Love’ era along with special performances from ‘The Dreaming’ and exclusive interviews of each member. Tickets will go on sale on November 14.
Having been prepared months in advance, fans can rejoice as this means that Shownu will be included. The leader of the group is currently on a hiatus since he has enlisted for his mandatory military service. Additionally, after the album and movie release, Monsta X has joined the lineup of the American event iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour. They will have four stops in the USA from December 13 to 19. This is their third time joining iHeartRadio’s tour as they performed back to back in 2018 and 2019.
