TXT really are BTS’s little siblings.
The members of TXT proved to be BTS‘s well-loved little siblings at the 2022 The Fact Music Awards. And TXT’s Taehyun was certainly Jimin‘s!
The two groups not only shared the most wholesome interactions during the ceremony, but BTS’s RM even went out of his way to hug TXT’s leader Soobin, giving fans the “dimpled leader” crumbs they’d always wanted.
In a Weverse live stream held on October 9, Taehyun spilled on the wholesome way in which BTS’s main dancer Jimin had supported him when he was struggling with a stunt.
At the end of TXT’s intro performance at the 2022 The Fact Music Awards (also known as the TMAs), Taehyun was meant to appear by “jumping” onstage (with the help of equipment).

The performance looked impressive as always, but Taehyun revealed that he’d had major reservations about doing the jump because he’d never used such equipment before. When he tried it, he jumped so high that he felt a little scared and turned to Jimin for help. After all, Jimin is a proven master at this point.

Jimin did not fail to text back with some advice, telling Taehyun that he should focus on the timing of the jump. And he also added warm words of encouragement, of course!

Taehyun has always looked up to Jimin, so it’s no surprise that he did not hesitate to text him about his concerns.

Now that fans know about how Jimin supported Taehyun in his performance, the sweet hug they shared at the end of the ceremony is taking on an even more touching meaning!
