MONSTA X fans, MONBEBE, are upset by the PR team of the group because of repeated mistakes in the past few days.
Starship Entertainment in a recent effort to interact with international fans started to communicate in English on their platforms and they might have created a new PR Team. However, there have been many issues with this and MONBEBE are upset by the unprofessionalism of the team.
Fans can differentiate the tweets from the English team because the members named are not in Hangeul and/or the tweet is fully in English.
Here are the three mistakes of the English PR Team.
1- 100,000 Likes Tweet
The story started back on June 25 when this tweet of the PR Team had upset many fans. It was asking 100,000 likes for a dance video of JooHoney. Needless to say that many were offended by such a tweet. It was the first time such a thing was asked and many found it different from the image of the group (for more you can read here). For information, MONSTA X’s likes average is below 100,000. The group recently got more than 100,000 likes on a post on July 1.

2- ShowNu Becomes KiHyun
The issues of the PR team did not stop here.
On July 3, on Twitter and Instagram, the PR team posted a picture of WonHo and ShowNu from their unit stage song ‘Mirror’ on the group third world tour “WE ARE HERE“. However, the PR team tweeted WonHo and KiHyun on the hashtag.
The posts were later corrected.

Even, MinHyuk noticed the mistake. He posted on the fancafe the tweet with correction on it and commented: “In case MONBEBE get confused […] KiHyun is on our team don’t get confused MONBEBE”. Indeed, MinHyuk, HyungWon, and KiHyun perform on Bazzi‘s ‘Myself’ on this tour.

3- WonHo and JooHoney Posters
Here is the third mistake. The bias card members names were wrong. On JooHoney’s bias card was written WonHo, and on JooHoney’s card WonHo.
MONBEBE are angry and upset at this lack of professionalism and numerously commented on how the situation was unacceptable.
Here are some reactions.
Some MONBEBE even started a petition to have a “new MONSTA X US PR Team”, you can check it here.
What do you think about the situation?
