TXT’s Official Merchandise For Upcoming Online Concert Gets Confused As NCT Goods

Uh oh, someone has some explaining to do.

TXT recently excited their fans after they announced the news about their upcoming online concert. Set to stream on October 3, 2021, the concert titled ACT: BOY will be the boy group’s first ever virtual concert.

As the excitement continues to build, HYBE Labels released official TXT concert merchandise on Weverse Shop. In the midst of the anticipation, however, the merchandise’s font and the logo are being mistaken for a different boy group.

However, upon further inspection, fans and other netizens quickly realized that the ACT: BOY logo meant for the upcoming TXT concert was very reminiscent of another popular K-Pop group — NCT and their group logo.
