BTS’s RM Shows Love For TXT’s “The Name Chapter: Temptation” Album On Instagram

He gave a special shoutout to TXT’s leader, Soobin!

BTS‘s RM, sometimes referred to by his real name Kim Namjoon, is widely regarded as one of the best leaders in K-Pop. He has kept his group grounded and stable throughout their unprecedented rise to the top of the world, and the members of BTS have often said that their team would never have been as successful as they are without him.

The rapper has also supported the many junior groups of BTS under HYBE, showing that he still acts as a good example even outside his team. A recent case of this was when RM uploaded Instagram stories proving he streamed his juniors’ songs after fromis_9, ENHYPEN, TXT, SEVENTEEN, NewJeans, and LE SSERAFIM completed the “Run BTS” TikTok challenge.

RM showed his love for TXT again in his latest Instagram stories. The first photo showed a signed copy of TXT’s latest comeback album, The Name Chapter: Temptation, which was addressed “To. Namjoonie hyung” (Hyung is the word Korean men use for older male friends).

The second photo showed part of a special message RM received from TXT’s leader, Soobin, who has also said that RM is a huge role model for himself. Even though only a few sentences could be read, Soobin’s deep admiration of RM was apparent. It also showed that Soobin listened to RM’s solo album, Indigo! RM’s image caption read, “Our Soobinnie, fighting!!

The last story showed RM streaming one of the tracks from The Name Chapter: Temptation titled “Sugar Rush Ride” as proof that he genuinely listened to the album.

RM is a perfect example of precisely what a K-Pop group leader should be!
