K-pop sensation Tomorrow X Together (TXT) has made a triumphant return with its latest offering, its 6th mini-album “minisode 3: TOMORROW,” looking back on its five-year journey in the spotlight.

Consisting of members Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and Huening Kai, TXT hosted a press event at Korea University’s Hwajeong Gymnasium, where they discussed its eagerly anticipated comeback hours ahead of the album release, Monday.

“We always strive to showcase a more refined version of ourselves with each new album release. We firmly believe that with this new album, we can once again demonstrate our ability to consistently produce high-quality albums,” Taehyun said.

Since debuting in 2019 with “CROWN,” TXT has consistently honed its distinctive musical style with emotionally charged hits like “Run Away” (2019), “Can’t You See Me?” (2021) and “Sugar Rush Ride” (2023).

The band’s trademark poignant yet intense musical characteristic is once again highlighted in the title track of the latest album, “Deja Vu.” Exploring a fusion of rage, a microgenre of trap music and emo rock, “Deja Vu” represents TXT’s latest fearless venture into uncharted musical territory.

Beomgyu described the lead single as “a poignant song that evokes the feeling of déjà vu when reuniting with someone we’ve made the dearest promise to.”

“Even as we venture into a new genre, we’re confident that our group’s identity remains distinct, demonstrating our evolution in genre assimilation,” he explained.

Notably, “Déjà Vu” contains numerous references to the group’s early days, adding depth and nostalgia to the latest musical offering.

“This song reminisces about past promises and the journey to fulfill them,” said Taehyun. “As it delves into revisiting the past, we’ve naturally woven in homages to our previous songs.”

Huening Kai chimed in, “This album not only encapsulates our debut days but also reflects our musical journey over the past five years we’ve been working as idols. That’s why for fans who have been steadfast in their support, this album holds extra significance.”

TXT celebrated its fifth anniversary in March. The boy band’s leader Soobin attributed his endurance through the challenges of the past five years to his fellow members.

“Though our journey has been fraught with difficulties, time has proven to be a healer. I’ve learned to become resilient and stand tall again… During moments of adversity, it was the members who lifted me up,” he said.

Yeonjun also acknowledged the pivotal role of fans in the group’s journey.

“While the members have been supportive, fans have also been instrumental in our journey. They’ve been a source of strength during tough times. Performing in front of them, seeing their smiles, makes all hardships fade away,” Yeonjun said.

Despite the group’s considerable success and fame, the members remained humble in their aspirations for the future.

“In discussing future goals, prioritizing health and happiness might seem cliché. However, having spent over five years as idols, I’ve come to realize that maintaining both simultaneously is never easy,” Taehyun candidly revealed.

“We’ve just recently understood that even maintaining health and happiness requires a significant amount of effort. Our ultimate goal is to always support each other’s well-being, ensuring our longevity in the industry.”
