[ARTICLE] MONSTA X's Shownu gave up some of his lines in 'Beautiful' for Hyungwon?
In a special feature by Mnet for MONSTA X’s comeback with their first full album ‘The Clan Part 2.5 - Beautiful’, producers Star Wars, Brother Su, Safari M, and Risi talked about the making of the album.
When asked about memorable episodes, Star Wars answered, “One time, Shownu came up to me just before recording finished for the day and said, ‘Hyung, don’t you think the picture would be more effective if during this part a pretty guy like Hyungwon emerged?’ In most idol groups, there are a lot of members and limited parts so no matter how close they are, they don’t worry about other members’ parts. When I heard him say that, it made me see how their teamwork or the way they think of one another is special.”
Brother Su said, “One time, Wonho came over to my house to work on music, but we only gossiped for 4 hours and ate ramen.Then he went home.” Producer Risi complimented the members on their improved singing as well, praising Hyungwon in particular.
They also revealed that MONSTA X really wished to win #1 with their comeback this time around and bid the boys best of luck for their upcoming promotions. Have you heard MONSTA X’s new song “Beautiful” yet?

I don’t know if anyone else has come across this, but I’ve read a lot of articles (Mental Floss, Jezebel, Smithsonian, NPR) that seem to conclude that while the colours could be interchanged and it wasn’t quite settled (I agree), the colour pink was more commonly a boy’s colour, and blue for girls until WWII. Almost all articles quote one single trade journal from 1918:
The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.
But from what I can find, while there’s some wiggle room - a couple articles I found said pink could certainly be used for boys - for the most part it’s generally been “pink for girls” and “blue for boys” since at least the 1890s. “Pink was a boys colour” seems like a bit of a modern myth perpetuated by that one source.
