Big Hit Entertainment– the juggernaut entertainment company behind K-pop superstars BTS – has unveiled their new group, called TXT or Tomorrow X Together.
Last night saw the South Korean company announce its next all boy group and its first member, 19-year-old Yeonjun.
TXT are the second group to debut under the label after highly successful megastars BTS‘ debut in 2013.
Big Hit teased K-pop fans with a 24-hour countdown found on a website with the URL ‘comingsoon.ibighit.com’. Secret messages hinting that there was a new boy group were hidden in the website’s coding.
Fans of BTS also found the internet riddled with private social media accounts with the username of ‘@TXT_bighit’.

At 12 am KST on January 11, the countdown hit zero. This saw the website’s URL automatically updated to ‘txt.ibighit.com‘. The site shows two images of Yeonjun, along with an introductory video. The video ends with morse code that fans have deciphered translates to the word ‘Dreaming’.
It seems that Big Hit will be revealing each member via the site with a second countdown ending in three days. Stay tuned.
