Okay, I know I’m coming a little late to the party on this one but is there really such a thing as being too late to fangirl? I don’t think so! At least not when you’re squeeing over a group as fantabulous as Monsta X!
When Monsta X made their debut back in May, I instantly fell in love. I can’t explain why, I just did. There was something about these seven incredibly talented boys that struck me just right and I fell for them. Hard. Not that my falling for them comes as any great surprise, I mean my fangirl side comes out way more than it probably should, but it was a bit surprising at how quickly they captured my heart. Usually I’m drawn in by a group’s debut but it takes me at least until their second release to commit to loving them but not with Monsta X.
I fell so hard for these ridiculously adorable boys, that by the time I saw them at KCON I was at the “OH MY GOSH THEY’RE RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME I CAN’T BREATHE SOMEONE CATCH ME ‘CAUSE I’M GONNA PASS OUT!” stage.
Seeing them in person, so soon after their debut, was a literal dream come true and it’s something I won’t ever forget. However, those few precious moments spent with them (and by “with them” I mean about a zillion feet apart but still in the same room) did something awful to me. Something I didn’t even think was possible. It made me love them even more. *gasp* (I guess even I have underestimated the ability of my fangirl heart to love.)
As each day passes, I love Monsta X more and their latest comeback isn’t helping things. At all. I swear, if I’d known I was gonna fall so hard for these boys, I would have stayed away from the very beginning. (Or so I tell myself.) But I didn’t and now I’m so far gone I can’t watch anything remotely related to Monsta X without breaking into full-on fangirl mode. I watch them on ASC and I squee like I’m 12. I watch their “Rush” MV and my heart starts pitter-pattering so hard I end up clutching my chest like I’m having a heart attack. (I guess I’m a sucker for those adorable tough guys stepping into the role of Prince Charming to rescue the damsel in distress. Go figure!) I watch the performance video for “Rush” and I fall out of my chair. Every. Single. Time. (What is it about jerseys, jeans, snapbacks, beanies, smiles and bias hair that makes me fall so completely to pieces? Wait… Is that even a question?)
If that weren’t bad enough, Monsta X had to go and release this “Amen” video and OH MY GIDDY FLIPPING AUNT! I melt every time I watch it! It’s the cutest frickin’ video on the face of the planet and being as far gone as I am, I can’t help but screech and squee and sob and melt every stinking time I watch it. (I know, I should probably cut myself off from the internet altogether but where’s the fun in that?)
With this comeback, Monsta X has brought out the most fangirly version of my fangirl self and I love them for it. So, so much. My family, however, is beginning to wonder about me. I guess I’d better find a way to tone down this fangirling… *snickers* Riiiiiiiight…
