Wait, isn’t it supposed to be TXT? Want to know when did TXT debut? Who are the members and other trivia?
Read on! Well, I have the answers to all you want to know.
What is Tomorrow X Together?
Tomorrow X Together is a K-Pop boy band under Big Hit Music and consists of five members. Since their debut, the group has been climbing up the charts and established itself as one of the most promising K-Pop groups in the music industry.
The name of the group ‘Tomorrow X Together’ is read as “Tomorrow by Together.” The group’s name is often unofficially abbreviated as TXT.
The group has often expressed their preference to be called by their full name instead of the acronym TXT. Apart from their unique name and concept, Tomorrow X Together is also known for the title of their songs.
Their song titles are unusually long when read in the Korean language and are shortened in English for convenience.
The South Korean K-Pop group is often referred to as the “Super Rookie’. They made records at their debut, earned several New Artist Awards, and are still going on strong as ever.
Tomorrow X Together and MOA: The Group’s Fan Club
The name, Tomorrow X Together, refers to the different personalities of the five members. They have different talents, different dreams, and different interests. But, to build a better future, a better tomorrow, they have come together to tackle the world.
They introduce themselves through the following phrase – “One Dream! Hello, We are Tomorrow X Together!” The group’s introduction also refers to their goal of having a common dream.
MOA is the name of the group’s fandom. On August 22, 2019, Big Hit announced it as the official fandom name after the former name ‘Young One’ clashed with another fandom’s name.
The acronym MOA stands for ‘Moments of Alwaysness’. Like the group’s name, the name of their fandom also refers to the togetherness of the artist and fan; that they will support and appreciate each other forever.
In order to express their support and love for their idols, fans can wear accessories exclusive to the fan club. Custom lanyards are a wise choice. The idol’s name or song name can be designed on it, and it will be very useful at their next concert. You can hang your phone on it so your hands are free to cheer. It’s also a memorable keepsake. The whole design process is very easy because the design team at GS-JJ.com will help you.
