TXT and ENHYPEN Members Bond After Rehearsals
The TXT members were also very relieved when they danced with the ENHYPEN members, because before the stage felt so empty that they wondered if they could fill it for a song like BTS’ Fire. Jake says they can do the legendary songs justice, so he asks viewers to look forward to their performance. Overall, everyone appreciates that they can learn something from the other team, and since their energies complement each other, they can even practice when they’re tired because the atmosphere is so fun.
KBS stage rehearsals
Since the KBS scene is so large, all of the members have expressed difficulty in getting their outfit changes done efficiently. From soundcheck to stage rehearsals, the boys put on their most energetic faces. As TXT Yeonjun said, “I promised MOAs that we would crush the final performances, and I think we are on the right track to do so.” While monitoring ENHYPEN’s onstage rehearsals, TXT Soobin observes that even with identical choreography, the groups have established their own identity and distinct vibes. Cue some cool clips of the members performing TVXQ Mirotic, BTS Fire.

Jungwoon d ‘ENHYPEN remembers that they were only 1000 people at their first live performance and it will be his first performance in front of such a large audience. Even seasoned members of TXT are not free from nervousness: Yeonjun is afraid of exaggerating expressions on stage (when performing a rap part for ENHYPEN). But everything turned out fine, as we see Taehyun fascinated by Yeonjun’s stage persona.
TXT & ENHYPEN on their growth and the success of their music
For TXT Soobin who found solace in music when he worried about his future before his debut, he says he feels most grateful when fans listen to their music when they feel down or need comfort or hope. ENHYPEN’s Sunoo is happy that he is not as nervous on stage as before and can express himself better when performing.
Both groups express their wish to leave a mark in the industry, so that trainees who start after them can be inspired by them and use their performances as a reference. They are also aware that the reason fans love them so much is because they put their all into their performances, so they must continue to work hard to retain their love and support – “proving endlessly”, as ENHYPEN puts it.
