Over the past seven years, since 2013, BTS was the only K-pop boy group under Big Hit Entertainment, until TXT joined the family in 2019. Ever since then, fans of both groups were ecstatic about the new senior/junior relationship, and have always anticipated their eventual interactions.
This feature cannot possibly contain all the heartwarming moments between the labelmates, but here is a selection of the most adorable interactions between BTS and TXT so far!

As thoughtful as ever, Jimin tweeted a message of encouragement to Big Hit Entertainment’s new rookies TXT, showering them with support and wishing them well for their much-anticipated debut.

2. When V guest-starred on Beomgyu and Yeonjun’s V Live broadcast
During a live broadcast, Beomgyu and Yeonjun were making bears with clay when V joined his hoobaes. He spoke highly of TXT and praised them on how hard they worked on their album. He also briefly greeted MOA before leaving the two members to reconnect with their fans.
3. When all Big Hit labelmates got together in the dressing room
This interaction was special because it not only involved BTS and TXT but their sunbae, Lee Hyun, who also made an appearance. He brought a bag of pretzels for the members, and the labelmates ended up sharing snacks and small talk. While getting to know each other a little bit, the BTS visibly doing their best to make TXT feel more comfortable around them.
4. When TXT joined BTS on their “Boy With Luv” encore stage
How many times did we wish to see BTS share the spotlight with fellow labelmates? Too many to count. With TXT being the newest addition to the family, we finally got a glimpse of that with this adorable stage! Although TXT remained at the far right during the encore, it was only a matter of time before BTS called them to join their celebratory performance.
5. When J-Hope taught Huening Kai a very sweet trick
J-Hope isn’t called a ray of sunshine for nothing. One of his many delightful moments is when he asked what Huening Kai had in his fanny pack. Stunned to silence, J-Hope taught him to say that “The fans’ hearts are in here,” which makes this shared scene between the two of them significantly moving.
6. When BTS and TXT bonded during their U.S. tours
It seems that the quintet still can’t get used to being around BTS, as they became nervous the moment they learned of them coming. TXT answered questions about their performances in the U.S. and voiced their amazement at BTS’s Chicago concert, which they attended. Lastly, they prepared a little set for their seniors which generated all kinds of reactions from the members.
7. When BTS and TXT greeted each other at the 2019 Melon Music Awards
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, these humble labelmates keep feeding us genuine moments! Since 2019 Melon Music Awards was the groups’ first joint attendance, it goes without saying that TXT was excited to be seated next to BTS, and the excitement increased when they approached to greet them.
8. When Jin lent his birthday hat to Soobin
Jin has always surprised us with the most unique and fashionable attires in public, and this time he wore a birthday hat on the 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards red carpet in celebration of his birthday on December 4. Later, that very same hat found its way to Soobin, whose birthday is on December 5. While this interaction wasn’t exactly witnessed, TXT’s commentary is largely satisfactory!
