In a recent interview, Yeonjun from TXT candidly shared the difficulties that come with being part of a 4th-generation boy group. The K-pop industry is constantly evolving, and 4th-gen groups face unique obstacles in establishing their own identity and standing out among their peers.
More recently, Yeonjun was a guest on Got7 BamBam’s YouTube show ‘Bam House’. Many Kpop idols have appeared on the show where they have candidly opened up about different struggles and pressures as well as their journey to making big.
The most recent guest was Yeonjun who is busy promoting TXT’s new album, The Name Chapter: FREEFALL. In one of the promotional events, the TXT member expressed his desire to debut on the Billboard Hot 100.
In a recent interview, BamBam asked Yeonjun ‘The 2nd and 3rd generations had a very long term. But it doesn’t seem to be the case for the 3rd and 4th generations. How does it feel to be active as a 4th generation?’
The talented TXT rapper answered saying, ‘I think the 4th generation is a bit difficult. It’s a shame that male idols are receiving much less attention. I wish many male idols would become more known.’
BamBam agreed saying ‘I think it’s a feeling that male idols have felt for a long time. We were really hungry for the public’s attention.
Yeonjun expressed his thoughts on the current music charts, noting that girl groups dominate the rankings. While acknowledging the quality of these songs, he also believes that there are many exceptional male idol songs that deserve more recognition. He expressed a slight sense of disappointment regarding this aspect.
BamBam emphasized the dedication and hard work of male idols, highlighting their desire for public recognition. He kindly requested the audience’s interest and support.
