TXT: Soobin Was Worried About ‘Good Boy Gone Bad’ Because He’s ‘Never Yelled at Anyone’
On May 9, the K-pop group Tomorrow X Together released a new EP called minisode 2: Thursday’s Child. After the EP dropped, Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai of TXT each sat down for an interview with Weverse Magazine. In his interview with Weverse Magazine, Soobin shared what it was like working on minisode 2: Thursday’s Child.
Soobin of TXT was worried about making ‘Good Boy Gone Bad’
As an album, minisode 2: Thursday’s Child deals with the theme of breakups. The EP’s lead single, “Good Boy Gone Bad,” explores the anger that follows a bad breakup.
For Soobin, the idea of making a dark and angry song like “Good Boy Gone Bad” was worrisome.
“When I first heard ‘Good Boy Gone Bad,’ I said, ‘Wow, I’m doomed.’ (laughs) This is awkward to say myself (laughs) but I have a reasonably kind-looking face (laughs) and I’ve never yelled at anyone in my life. I thought it was going to be a big issue,” Soobin told Weverse Magazine.
Soobin then told Weverse Magazine that the EP’s song “Trust Fund Baby” was actually “the hardest song” he’s ever worked on.
“And ‘Trust Fund Baby’ was the hardest song I’ve ever done. When I sang the whole thing through, most of the parts were easy to get through, but I got stuck on the part that goes, ‘I can’t be a lover,’ and felt like the part wasn’t for me but the part eventually went to me anyway. I have a love-hate relationship with the song since it was so tough for me. But now I’m good at performing it live and got a lot better,” he shared.
What Soobin thinks of TXT’s song ‘Opening Sequence’
On minisode 2: Thursday’s Child, the album’s opener, “Opening Sequence,” is a dark and dramatic song. Speaking with Weverse Magazine, Soobin shared what it was like to work on the song.
“I felt like that opening line was the highlight of the song when I heard the demo, but they gave that part to me. I told them, ‘I think you gave me the wrong part. I don’t know if I can pull this off.’ But the producer was firm with the decision, saying, ‘We gave it to you because we thought you’re the right one for the part, so just try to be confident.’ I worked hard on the recording since I got the part. (laughs),” Soobin told Weverse Magazine.
Soobin shared he has been working on his singing
Midway through the Weverse Magazine interview, Soobin discussed his singing technique and shared that he has seen improvements with his “vocal range.”
“My vocal range has actually improved a lot. I had to really give it my all singing our songs and my vocals were unstable, but now it’s so incredibly easy I can’t believe it. So I could’ve sung in falsetto for this album, but I felt ambitious and told the producer I wanted to sing in my normal voice. I ended up using falsetto anyway, but I think I’m getting past that limitation,” Soobin told Weverse Magazine.
