TXT has had an incredible year and has met and befriended many impressive artists along the way, including Taehyun‘s idol, Billie Eilish.
In May, the group completely switched up their concept and came back with a darker concept during their “Good Boy Gone Bad” era.
In July, they began their first world tour, 2022 TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR <ACT : LOVE SICK. Later that same month, they made history as the first K-Pop group to perform at the popular American music festival Lollapalooza in Chicago.
To follow an exciting two months, another one of Taehyun’s dreams came true in August when he was able to attend American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish’s concert and meet her with fellow members Beomgyu and Yeonjun.
Taehyun has frequently shared his love and admiration for Billie Eilish and her music, recommending her songs to fans, setting her picture as his phone wallpaper, and, most recently, chatting about her in his ELLE Korea interview.
Taehyun will be making his first solo magazine feature in the December issue of ELLE Korea, and he stunned fans with his handsome visuals in the photos that have been released.
In his interview with ELLE Korea, Taehyun was asked about his “ultimate fanboy” moment at Billie Eilish’s concert and what he learns from watching the performances of people he admires.
Taehyun thoughtfully answered, praising Billie’s performance while sharing how it impacted him,
First and foremost, I become motivated to do better. And as for Billie’s concert, it was such an incredible performance that I felt like anyone in the performing arts should watch it at least once. We’re not exposed to such sensational and emotional shock in our day-to-day lives, you know? Just by witnessing beautiful moments, I think, inspiration comes.
In the same answer, he hilariously revealed the iconic way he charmed the American artist when he finally met her, and it couldn’t be more adorable.
Taehyun greeted Billie with a pun based on her song, “Lovely” with American singer Khalid.
After the concert, I got to talk to Billie. I told her that she was “the loveliest” when she sang the words, “Isn’t it lovely?” for the performance of “Lovely.” I was definitely “fanboying” hard. But I don’t regret it at all (laughs).
