This week started in the best possible way. One of the most influential K-pop groups released a new EP to the public. It is the group Tomorrow X Together with their new album titled minisode 2: Thursday’s Child. A comeback with many surprises that has delighted the public.
For those who don’t know, TXT acronym for Tomorrow X Together, is a South Korean K-pop boy band formed by Big Hit Music (same company to which BTS belongs) in 2019. The group is composed of five members: Huening Kai, Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu and Taehyun. TXT debuted on March 4, 2019 with the EP, The Dream Chapter: Star. The official name of their fanclub is MOA which stands for Moments Of Alwaysness. They are considered as one of the top leaders of the fourth generation of K-pop by Recording Academy.
This new album comes with a spectacular music video of their title track song Good Boy Gone Bad. This is a hip hop genre song with rock elements, and the lyrics show the dark transformation of a “good boy” after experiencing a love breakup for the first time.
In the video we can see how the members of the group perform all kinds of violent or irresponsible acts as part of the concept they wanted to put into practice for this comeback. With this, they have tried to express the enormous suffering that exists, at times, inside the minds of the typical ‘badasses’.
This idea could not have pleased the fans more, who have filled the social media with messages of support for the group. In just a few hours, the video is already counting its views in the millions.
And who also liked this EP was J-Hope, a member of BTS. The rapper has not hesitated to share in his Instagram stories a fragment of the TXT music video. Right to the fragment he wrote “Cheer up, dongsaengs (little brothers)”. An act that not only delighted and surprised fans but also the members of the group itself. In fact, Taehyun posted that he was chatting with J-Hope through messages and that he was very happy and thankful to him.
The comeback is proving to be a success for the group and the company as the new album has recorded 1.07 million copies sold in just two days since its release, their representative agency, Big Hit Music, announced on Wednesday. Based on data from local album sales tracker Hanteo Chart, as of Tuesday, the album, titled minisode 2: Thursday’s Child, sold 1,072,854 copies following its Monday release. TXT earned the title of “million-copy seller” three years after its debut in March 2019.
