TXT marks Big Hit’s first major group premiere since the Korean entertainment launched BTS in 2013. The record-breaking, South Korean septet gave a shout out to the up-and-coming teen group in an acceptance speech at the 2019 Seoul Music Awards, referring to TXT as their “juniors.”
TXT stands for Together x Tomorrow. Big Hit has been teasing individual shots of group members on social media, prior to today’s all-member introductory visual. The five TXT members are named Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu, Hueningkai, and Taehyun.
The younger group potentially possesses a lot of the charisma BTS carries. The film shows the TXT boys laughing, running, and dancing through various locations including a school, a soccer field, a subway car and a blank white set. They jump down a flight of stairs, play rock, paper, scissors and show off several tightly-choreographed dance sequences.
The video has already garnered over 1.2 million views since it posted on YouTube in the last 24 hrs. This big response probably bodes well for TXT’s future.
BTS has a huge, global fan base aka ARMY. They have arguably thrust the K-pop genre into the world spotlight. Audiences everywhere (including the U.S.), scream and even cry when BTS hits the stage to perform at a live show. The group set a Twitter engagement record, spoke at the United Nations, and won the Daesang (Grand Prize) at the Seoul Music Awards this year for the second year in a row.
TXT appears to be a happy, cohesive five-piece group in the clip. The group’s website boasts overlapping circles on the home page, featuring the slogan “You and I, Different But Together.” A TXT album announcement has yet to be made.
