TXT’s Yeonjun Opens Up About Learning To Honestly Express His Pain
In a recent interview and pictorial for Japanese magazine SPUR, TXT’s Yeonjun talked about the group’s latest albums and how they’ve changed him!
Notably, Yeonjun is the first K-pop group member ever to grace the cover of SPUR magazine. In the interview that followed his photo shoot, he spoke about working on TXT’s music, their goals for the future, and more.
Reflecting on TXT’s discography from the past two years—and why so many of their songs have struck a chord with listeners their age—Yeonjun remarked, “Both our ‘The Chaos Chapter‘ series and our ‘minisode‘ series speak honestly about the emotional wounds and pain that we experience. Because we’re honestly writing our own stories, I think the songs naturally end up being relatable for many people our age.”
Yeonjun also revealed that working on the albums had changed his approach to dealing with such painful feelings. “In the past, I hid my emotional pain and embraced it alone,” he shared, “but through these albums, I learned to express myself.”
At the moment, TXT is gearing up to release their third Japanese single album “GOOD BOY GONE BAD” on August 31, after performing at Japan’s biggest music festival Summer Sonic in both Tokyo and Osaka on August 20 and 21.
The group, who is currently on tour in the United States, will also kick off the Japanese leg of their first world tour “ACT : LOVE SICK” in September.
