TXT delighted fans when four of the five members started a live broadcast to chat with fans. Although member Taehyun couldn’t be with them in person after being diagnosed with COVID-19, he was definitely there in spirit.
BIGHIT MUSIC announced on November 5 that Taehyun had unfortunately contracted COVID-19 and would be unable to join the group for their upcoming performance at Music Bank in Chile on November 12.
Taehyun underwent a rapid antigen test on 5, Nov. after experiencing mild symptoms and was diagnosed with COVID-19.
None of the TOMORROW X TOGETHER members other than Taehyun are presenting any symptoms, and everyone got negative results from the self-diagnosis test kit they took as a preemptive measure, today.
It seems Taehyun is currently quarantining separately from the group in order to recover. Although he couldn’t join them physically for the live stream, he surprised fans by popping into the comment section.

Taehyun contributed to the lively atmosphere, even from afar, jokingly commenting with aegyo requests for his fellow members as if he was a fan.

When the group spoke about their beloved fifth member, Hueningkai shared how he’s been feeling without his roommate and fellow maknae-line member around.
TXT previously shared one bedroom with three bunk beds; after moving to their new dorm in 2021, each member secured their own room except for Taehyun and Hueningkai, who continued to room together.
When Hueningkai noticed Taehyun was in the chat, he shared that their room felt empty without his best friend.
Beomgyu chimed in and told Taehyun he left a stuffed animal bunny behind, but Hueningkai made sure to keep the stuffed animal safe by setting it on Taehyun’s empty bed.
🐧: ya taehyun, are you watching?
🐧: the bed next to me felt so empty
🧸: you left a doll
🐧: I put the doll on top
🐧: taehyun, the doll is protecting your spot. I put a rabbit doll on it.
🧸: take a good rest~@TXT_memberspic.twitter.com/JO1EYPJpwk
