TXT’s Taehyun Doesn’t Own An iPhone For This Relatable Reason

We love him for it!

TXT‘s Taehyun is known to be one of the most down-to-earth idols ever. While some might think that his honesty is savage, he is also known for his crazy love for fans! When a fan asked if he saw her banner at a concert, he was immediately able to point out the exact location.

I had this board during the Osaka concert. Did you see it?” | Weverse

When the fan asked about her board, he answered that it was around stage right.

It was at stage right, wasn’t it? Stage right refers to the right side from the POV of the singer looking at the audience.” | Weverse

As the new iPhone update has recently come out, fans were curious if Taehyun had gotten the update. Although Taehyun does not have an iPhone, the fan had mistaken the phone in one of his recent selfies as an iPhone.

Taehyun, did you update your iPhone?? [edit] Gasp, wait, I thought that the phone in his mirror selfie was an iPhone. But he replied. I’m sorry, Taehyun, what am I doing.

Taehyun calmly replied that he was not using an iPhone.

I’m not using an iPhone.

Fans began asking why he did not use an iPhone, in an era where everyone uses one.

Why aren’t you using an iPhone? Is there a special reason?” | Weverse

His reason was simple!

It’s expensive.

— Taehyun

Fans believed that there was no way he could not afford an iPhone with the money he makes as a popular idol. With an iPhone, he could take better selfies for fans.

Taehyun, you have lots of money though… Buy an iPhone and take more more more pretty selfies for us.

Well, sometimes it’s not all about the money! Even if one can afford something, it may not be worth it to them.

I don’t have money. Handphones are as expensive as computers these days.

— Taehyun

We totally appreciate his relatable and down-to-earth answer!
