MONSTA X have shared a music video teaser for their upcoming English-language single, ‘One Day’.
In the snippet, members of the boyband solemnly spend time at home, before uniting at the end to watch fireworks. Notably, the clip also features member Shownu, who enlisted for his mandatory military service in July as a public service worker.
Both ‘One Day’ and its accompanying music video are expected to be released this Friday (September 10). As of writing, it’s currently unclear whether MONSTA X’s upcoming song will be a standalone single or if it’ll will be accompanied by a larger body of work.
On September 1, the K-pop boyband took to their official Twitter page to release a teaser image for their forthcoming release. The image features an English phrase which reads, “Wish you the best with somebody new / But they’ll never love ya like I do.”

‘One Day’ will be the group’s first official release to be promoted without member Shownu. It is also their second release since the singer’s enlistment, following the ‘Kiss Or Death’ for the fan community app Universe in July.
In June, MONSTA X dropped their ninth mini-album ‘One Of A Kind’, which featured the lead single ‘Gambler’. NME’s Ruby C gave the record four out of five stars in her review, describing it as a “gamble, so to speak, that paid off”.
“MONSTA X took a leap of faith with their latest wild card, but ‘One Of A Kind’ manages to display their unique colours while also fearlessly pushing creative, lyrical and even linguistic boundaries,” she wrote.
