(Updated June 2020)
IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I since have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites. This also means I cannot add as many full videos as before, because they simply are not available in my region. All of the videos on the list are the ones I can access easily in Korea, or they are subbed clips I can find on Korean YouTube. I apologize for the inconvenience! – Katherine
Approximate Promotion Period: October and November 2018
A popular series of dance videos where an idol group performs their latest track standing in a line, with one member dancing at a time.
JTBC (some episodes on V-Live)
A K-pop centered variety show with former Weekly Idol hosts Jung Hyungdon and Defconn. It generally features standard dance and mission corners, tailoring the games to the group or a specific member. Clips (especially subbed ones) are hard to find because the show is pretty vigilant about their copyright. It’s best to go directly to the source on V-Live (click here).
You can watch the broadcast on V-Live here. The clip is of Monsta X doing a medley dance of their past hits.
WHEN YOU CALL MY NAME
When You Call My Name – The Legacy of Monsta X and Gallant
Soompi and Viki TV
A documentary with Gallant where they talk about things like their childhoods, what inspired them to become singers, their hopes for the future, etc.
A popular variety show that shines the spotlight on one or more idol groups every episode. There are well-known corners that often involve dance challenges or aegyo, but the guests always play games or complete missions to earn prizes.
Weekly Idol fansubbed episodes are blocked in Korea, so I can only link whatever subbed clips I can find on YouTube at this point. This clip features Monsta X doing the Season 2 “Rollercoaster Dance” corner, which is dancing to their new song at various random speeds.

AFTER MOM IS ASLEEP
After Mom Goes to Sleep
MEMBERS: Shownu, Hyungwon, and Jooheon
Guests cook a meal and answer interview questions, but they have to be quiet and stay under a certain noise level. If they make a loud noise or talk loudly, the “mom” sleeping behind them will wake up and they have to wear something silly as punishment. (Sometimes it’s a different setting like school or the office, but there’s always a character sleeping.)
