TXT: Yeonjun Likes Rapping Because It Makes Him 'Feel Stronger'

On May 9, the K-pop group Tomorrow X Together released an EP titled minisode 2: Thursday’s Child. Following the release of the EP, Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai of TXT were each interviewed by Weverse Magazine. In his interview for Weverse Magazine, Yeonjun discussed working on minisode 2: Thursday’s Child and his love of rapping.

Yeonjun likes rapping as a member of TXT

TXT debuted in 2019, and they have become more popular with each comeback. The members of TXT have also become more involved with making their own music on every album.

While speaking with Weverse Magazine, Yeonjun shared that rapping makes him “feel stronger.”

“I feel stronger when I rap (laughs) and it’s nice I’m free to say whatever I want since I write all the words. It’s fun trying to think of a better rhyme or line to write, too—like solving a puzzle,” Yeonjun told Weverse Magazine.

He added, “When I make a rap, I’m less worried about how to structure it and more about how to get the feeling across in such a short rap.”

Yeonjun worked on the K-pop group’s new EP ‘minisode 2: Thursday’s Child’

For the first time ever, minisode 2: Thursday’s Child features sub-unit songs by the members of TXT. Yeonjun and Huening Kai worked together on the song “Lonely Boy (The Tattoo on My Ring Finger).”

Speaking with Weverse Magazine, Yeonjun shared what it was like to work on “Lonely Boy (The Tattoo on My Ring Finger)” and the EP’s lead single “Good Boy Gone Bad.”

“… while ‘Good Boy Gone Bad’ is all about anger and madness, ‘Lonely Boy (The tattoo on my ring finger)’ is more like sadness, and the idea of a tattoo on the ring finger was clear. The reason the speaker’s so sad is very obvious, so I wrote the rap according to that theme. The two songs deal with the same breakup but have the opposite feeling, so I could express each one differently and had fun doing it,” Yeonjun shared.

Yeonjun helped with TXT’s choreography

In addition to co-writing some of the songs on minisode 2: Thursday’s Child, Yeonjun also gave input about TXT’s choreography for songs from the EP.

In his interview with Weverse Magazine, Yeonjun shared that he gave an idea about the band’s choreography for “Good Boy Gone Bad.”

“In choreography, we usually make sure our hands are not in the way. We put them in my pockets or hold something, but those moves are too rigid and gentle for this song. This song has a raw feeling—a tough, raw feeling. So I asked them if we could try letting our hands wave around freely,” Yeonjun told Weverse Magazine.

He continued, “They all said it was a lot better so we ended up using it in the final choreography. It’s a small change, but I think change always starts from small differences. I actually made some choreography for the chorus, too, but it never made it to the final choreo. (laughs)”
