TXT recently released their comeback song “Run Away”, and TXT fans, or MOAs as they are better known, made a common observation that brought excitement to the TXT fandom.
“Run Away” showed references to the Harry Potter Series!
The first obvious reference is “Run Away’s” Korean title, which roughly translates to “waiting for you at the 9 3⁄4 platform.” Every Potterhead knows that the 9 3/4 platform is Harry’s portal to get to Hogwarts.
Then there’s Taehyun, looking so much like Harry Potter himself.
Add a mysterious door beneath a swimming pool that leads to a secret garden.
And a giant door that suddenly goes up in flames!
MOAs take off from this analysis, reminded of the intriguing storylines of BTS songs in the past. It’s not a remote possibility that Big Hit Entertainment is continuing this tradition with TXT’s latest comeback album, which showcases their growth as a group.
Fans excitedly discuss their discoveries on Twitter, sharing their theories on “Run Away”.
It’s part of Harry Potter! It’s the platform the students use to get on the Hogwats express. TXTs new song talks about magic and magic worlds as an escape (the other name is Run Away) they also reference Cinderella’s bibbidi-boppidi-boo

So since Monday I can't stop thinking of how, even though @TXT_members "Run Away" references Harry Potter in title and the lyrics, the concept of magic shown anywhere else in the MV goes more into ones from another fantasy series… #RunAwayWithTXT
