Monsta X latest from K-pop to book gig in Saudi Arabia … sigh

Following Stray Kids, Super Junior, and BTS, the next group to schedule a stop in Saudi Arabia is going to be Monsta X, as if them and Starship Entertainment don’t have enough mess without having to deal with this.

It’s going to be a part of Riyadh Season, so it definitely features government involvement (which sets these events apart from concerts in some other problematic locales), and thus it also comes with the same baggage as it did for those who came before them.

For better or worse there’s not much new to say on that front, but I suppose this outcome was basically inevitable once it became as much about diplomacy as anything else, and so I expect more and more to follow in coming months/years.
