The boys of TOMORROW X TOGETHER have unleashed their wild, dark side for the first time, and fans are loving it.

TXT held a showcase for their 4th mini-album minisode 2: Thursday’s Child on the 9th. “We’ve been wanting to show an intense concept at least once,” the boys opened up. “I think the time has finally come. We’ve found the new sides of ourselves, and we have certainly grown.”

For this new album, TXT has borrowed the theme of “Thursday’s Child,” which is a part of Mother Goose’s nursery rhymes. About the title track “Good Boy Gone Bad,” the members shared, “It’s a new kind of breakup song. There’s anger and a sense of loss, but they turn into something very intense. Other breakup songs are either about missing the past love or feeling sad. But we went with a different approach.”

They further explained, “If all five of us have drawn one big picture so far, this time, we’re focusing on group dance. We wanted to go beyond the sadness of the breakup and deliver the intense anger and the complicated emotions. So we watched movies and dramas because the faces we make are so important.”

As of the 10th (8AM KST), minisode 2: Thursday’s Child topped the iTunes Top Album in 43 countries, including the UK, Japan, and Brazil. It’s also ranked second in the US and Canada, proving the global interest in TXT’s comeback. The title song “Good Boy Gone Bad” ranked first on iTunes Top Songs in 19 countries, and its music video has surpassed 5 million views in just 12 hours.
