Who Are TXT?

The fourth generation K-pop band is comprised of members Beomgyu, leader Soobin, Yeonjun,Taehyun and maknae Huening Kai. TXT first debuted in 2019 with “Crown,” and was the first group to come out of the music company HYBE since mega-famous group BTS‘ debut in 2013.

“Our music is our story of growth and, honestly, we’re nowhere near done with growing,” Beomgyu told NME in September 2021. “We have a long journey ahead, and through our music we’ll continue to represent the emotions we feel and the experiences we have as young people growing in this generation.”

He added, “I’m sure that the story we’ll continue to tell will be one that all our fellow Gen Z will be able to relate to, as well as all those who have been at this stage of growth in their lives.”
