I should admit that I am a sucker for a good documentary and that is exactly what this is. It's a short documentary that talks with both the K-Pop group MONSTA X and the American R&B singer Gallant. To be honest I knew nothing about Gallant before I watched this show and very little about MONSTA X, so this was a good way to be introduced to both .

This show is short (less than 30 minutes long) so it's an easy watch and it's full of all sorts of interesting interviews. I really enjoyed it. However the coolest thing was right at the end when MONSTA X and Gallant sang together. I expected Gallant to sing English lyrics, but he didn't...he sang in full on Korean and did it well. I was super impressed! Too often, we here in the USA, seem to expect others to do things "our way" and it was so neat to see this American R&B artist join in the "Korean way" and to do it well. Korean is a tough language to learn (I've been working on it for two years) and singing in it is super challenging when you don't do it all the time, so I found that part of the documentary extremely impressive.

I highly recommend this show!
