During the time TXT‘s Yeonjun was a trainee, he was well-known for always scoring first place in every category for the company’s monthly evaluations. In fact, he earned the title “Big Hit’s Lengendary Trainee” because of how well he did.
With talent like that, he could’ve easily joined any company that he wanted. Out of them all, Yeonjun found his home at Big Hit Entertainment. Thanks to a live broadcast and a question submitted by a fan, he finally revealed how he’d been cast not once but twice to join.
Yeonjun confirmed that he did indeed audition. It hadn’t been because he’d sought out the company, though.
In order to receive that chance, he’d been approached through social media by someone from the company, “I decided to audition for Big Hit Entertainment because, first, they got in touch with me on SNS.” That hadn’t been the only time he’d heard from them.
Soon after, Yeonjun was riding on public transportation like he would on any other typical day. Out of nowhere, someone came to sit in the seat beside him. “After that, I was on the subway, and a lady came and sat next to me.”
It turned out to be another person who was attempting to recruit him, “She asked if I belonged to an agency. And, I went, ‘No.’ Then she pulled out her business card.” Once he had a look at it, he realized the company had been all too familiar.
It had been the second employee of Big Hit Entertainment that he’d encountered, “This person [who] saw me on the subway and asked me to join the agency was not the same person who got in touch with me earlier.” By then, it was too much of a coincidence for Yeonjun to ignore.
Naturally, he became interested in the company and went through with joining. It was thanks to those two employees that Yeonjun ended up where he was supposed to be, “I was fascinated. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them. Thank you.”
When it comes to choosing the right members to complete a boy group, Big Hit Entertainment’s staff never fails. TXT wouldn’t be TXT if all five members weren’t part of the equation. See Yeonjun reveal how fateful those two encounters had been, beginning at 1:47.
