TXT (/ˈt-ˈɛks-ˈt/ TEE-eks-tee; Hangul투모로우바이투게더; RRTumoroubaitugedeo; lit. Tomorrow by Together), short for Tomorrow X Together, is a five-member South Korean boy band formed by Big Hit Entertainment. The group consists of members Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai.[2] They debuted on March 4, 2019 with the EP The Dream Chapter: Star.

Name[edit]

The group’s name, TXT, is an acronym standing for "Tomorrow X Together".[3] In Korean, the group name is "투모로우바이투게더 (RR: Tumoroubaitugedeo)",[4] or the words "tomorrow by together" transliterated into Hangul. The band's complete English name is said like its Korean version.[5]

History[edit]

Plans for a second boy group from Big Hit Entertainment were announced by founder Bang Si-hyuk as early as 2017[6] and a date for early 2019 set in November 2018.[7] TXT was officially revealed on January 10, 2019.[8][9] Over the next ten days, YouTube videos depicting each member, dubbed "introduction films", were released.[10]

A debut broadcast for the group was aired on Mnet and its YouTube page, and was announced along with the band's debut extended play, The Dream Chapter: Star.[11] A debut showcase, held at the Yes24 Live Hall on March 5.[12] Following the release of the EP, the music video of their debut single, "Crown" broke the record for the most viewed K-Pop debut music video within 24 hours for a boy group.[13]

A week after the release of their album, the group debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Emerging Artists, World Albums, and World Digital Song Sales chart and debuted at No. 140 on the Billboard 200 chart for the first time, making them the fastest K-Pop group to appear in the charts and highest-charting debut album by any male K-pop group.[14]

Tours[edit]

In April 2019, TXT announced its first-ever tour, a six-show debut showcase in most major U.S. markets, including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, and Atlanta .[15]
