    Just my opinion, but TXT feels like any other generic group to me. I don't think Bighit is doing anything different or special, or that the group is.

    BTS is just one of those few groups in the Korean industry that have really good chemistry and make you feel like there is something unique about the members and group as a whole.

    I think this example is one of the drivers behind my fundamental disagreement with company stans, the most important thing will always be the relationships between the members, the unique energy a group creates and how the members bring the best out in each other (the whole is greater than the sum of its parts etc). I think it is foolish to stan groups because of the company when there is a difference in the quality/flavor of the experience between groups within the same company and across the industry as a whole. This goes for any company not just Bighit (just the first thing that came to my mind)

    Did someone hold you at gun point and tell you to stan TXT or something? If you don't like em then move on with your life.

    But seriously, don’t you think it’s a bit too early and unfair to say that TXT is just another “generic group.” They haven’t even been out for half of a year... I wouldn’t even bring up “company” stans in this situation because TXT did get hate from army and the army that supports them so it because they genuinely like TXT, not because they’re just a group under BH.

    I’m not so familiar with txt but i can see your point. Bighit formula to make groups popular is bs bts are there because of the members themselves plus all the support and attention bighit is giving them not because bighit has ways to make superstars :/
    I’m no hating on txt tho they’re nice kids with a great potential

    I feel like Pentagon does TXT music better than TXT does TXT music...does that make sense?

    Thanks for being level headed, I wasn't hating on TXT anyone who actually read my whole post would have figured that out.

    I understand but disagree. For me Pentagon is pretty disappointing as someone who likes both Beast and BTOB, this is more do to my personal preference in smaller groups and for the music style that the other two groups had.

    No, I don't think it is unfair, I just don't find them special.

    Yeah, they are no Beast or BtoB that's for sure, but just comparing the cute, childlike, innocent aspect of some songs like Pentagons naughty boy, shine and humph to TXTs crown, I think Pentagon does it better.

    I'm not particularly a fan of either tbh.

    Damn, you could’ve at least waited to say this after they had their first comeback or are more established.

    I like their song but I understand where you are coming from.
    They are suffering under the comparisons to BTS though, who right from the start had very characterised and distinctive performances (and voices), like these




    I think TXT are how bighit intended them to be. They seem more like a typical kpop group and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    They have a unique sort of storyline, which I think will become a trademark of bighit groups, that is what is keeping me interested, plus the choreography is very creative.
    I do like their interactions with BTS and I wish them all the best!

    But if they werent BTS' juniors, I would have lost interest already as their personalities and voices do not appeal to me (apart from in Crown). I do not stan them and probably never will.

    Regardless I anticipate their comeback.
    They seem to be kept under wraps...I wonder what they're planning

    agree. about txt though i definitely can see what you mean and lowkey agree to a certain extent but at the same time i feel like it's too early to tell, they're still opening up, i personally will give them more time and see how it goes idk

    Took less than 3 minutes, could have wasted it on social media looking at pictures instead I guess.
