Tomorrow X Together (note: the ‘X is read as ‘by’), or more commonly referred to as simply TXT, is a five-member K-pop idol group that debuted in March 2019.
Their group is composed of their leader Soobin and members Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Hueningkai – all of whom share talents in singing, rapping, and dancing.
In the years since debuting, TXT has already made a name for themselves on both the local and international music scenes, with several group and album awards under their belt – as well as a place on multiple Billboard top charts.
All in all, they’ve been blazing a trail in the K-pop industry and it’s made all the more impressive when you realize they’re all very young.
TXT is under the Big Hit Entertainment label, which is also the company that manages BTS! Given that, it makes complete sense that their social media and public relations strategies are similar – including the production of their very own variety show!
That’s right, like their sunbaenims’ (a sunbaenim is akin to a senior in your industry – someone who entered the field before you and therefore has more experience) with Run BTS!, TXT has a variety show entitled TO DO X Tomorrow X Together – or just TO DO, for short.
In TO DO, the members are given tasks and missions to complete, precisely like a to-do list.
With each mission, they are given a certain number of grape-shaped stickers to add to drawings they made in their pilot episode. Once they’ve filled up their drawings with stickers, they get to go on their “wish” trip.
So, we’ve decided to look back on the best episodes from TO DO that are sure to tickle your funny bone!
Why we love it: This episode is probably the first one to show the truly chaotic side of TXT – after they got over the initial awkwardness that’s evident in the first few episodes.
They were more willing to scream at each other in The Whisper Game, show off their strength in arm wrestling, and pull little pranks on each other during the Mouth to Mouth flour game. Ending the episode with flour-covered faces was the cherry on top!
TXT soft chaos moment: The Whisper Game is what gave us Jimin’s iconic “lajibolala” from Run BTS, and it’s also what’s given us Beomgyu’s “Orange Hade” and frustrated screaming at Taehyun every time he would get the syllables wrong.
Why we love it: We get a slightly deeper look into the lives of the TXT members as this episode is filmed in their own dorm! Well – what looks to be the walk-in closet of their dorm, at least.
They play various games to earn them points from a large Bingo card, and the number of points accumulated would determine the snacks they could get from their production team. Some of these games include word association, naming the pictures, jackstones, even Jenga – the creativity was endless!
TXT soft chaos moment: The way that they struggled during the Korean Only game! Even simple words they use every day like “okay”, “pizza”, and “team” were a struggle to get around. They had to beg for more chances every few seconds, so there was no way they would get through the required 10 minutes.
Why we love it: This is the second of two episodes filmed at the Lotte World amusement park, and this last game was an individual match that really brought out the competitive side in them!
Their lightsticks were hidden throughout the amusement park, but only one of those was the “real” one. They had to race to find the real lightstick and when it was found, chase each other to get – and keep – possession of it until the time was up. Needless to say, it was absolute mayhem.
The members were being so competitive that the crew actually had to change the rules mid-game to ensure they were being safe!
TXT soft chaos moment: Soobin desperately trying to hide when he had the real lightstick (not an easy feat when he’s the tallest one at over 6ft).
Also, the last few minutes of them frantically chasing Soobin before he could place the lightstick on the table were the most nail-biting moments of the entire episode.
Why we love it: It was simple but sweet, and harkened back to their days as trainees where they claim they spent a lot of time visiting the convenience store nearby.
Hence, their staff wanted to test how well they really knew convenience store products through a series of games. These include making “meals” out of everyday store foods, shopping to a certain amount without knowing the items’ prices, and guessing the store’s best-selling products.
TXT soft chaos moment: When the staff came over to take their homemade “meals” off for voting, they accidentally dropped Soobin’s carefully curated ice cream cone. Hueningkai laughed so hard at Soobin’s complaints that he tipped himself over and fell off the chair! The fall alone was funny enough but his scream of surprise on his way down made it even more hilarious!
Why we love it: Like Episode 10, this is the second installment in the two-episode streak filmed in a type of fitness amusement park.
Here, the members have already figured out which color was assigned to them. Their next task is to locate more cards hidden around the park that will let them transfer the “bomb” to another player’s color. Whoever’s color had the bomb when time was up was given a penalty.
As per usual with TXT, the members immediately pinpointed their targets and had no hesitation in betraying each other!
TXT soft chaos moment: Despite being their leader, Soobin easily became a target for the rest of the members. At one point while in a pit full of big, transparent balls, he slips beneath some, and both Hueningkai and Taehyun waste no time in trapping him there while Yeonjun places the bomb on his color.
Poor Soobin was screaming for help and calling them inhumane, while everyone – including the production crew he was asking for help from – just laughed.
Why we love it: We love these individual challenges that have the TXT members on scavenger hunts! Not only is it prime for their usual bout of betrayal but it’s always interesting to see how each member will strategize.
It’s yet another second installment and this time, they’re at a large secondhand bookstore in Seoul. Now on their second task of the day, they need to solve the clues given to find specific books – these books will have clues leading to the winning word of the day. At the same time, they need to collect bookmarks hidden around the bookstore that contain letters – whoever can spell the winning word with their bookmarks, wins!
TXT soft chaos moment: When the members were using chance items they obtained in round one (episode 26) to steal each others’ bookmarks in order to win – you know, typical TXT betrayal tactics.
Also right at the last second, when Hueningkai found the missing letter and bolted to the front of the store so he could win – Beomgyu and Yeonjun moved so fast to stop him, and Beomgyu even tried to tackle him on the ground!
Why we love it: The members were betraying each other at every turn! The premise of their challenge was to find red and blue pens hidden around the restaurant, then use these pens to either increase their score (blue) or decrease the other members’ scores (red) by writing their names in the notebooks their staff had.
They could only write when they heard the signal – their song being played – and had to stop as soon as the music stopped too.
TXT soft chaos moment: Every time their scores were updated, they would immediately gang up on the member with the highest score even when alliances had already formed.
None of them cared if the member they were reducing points from was right there, watching as they repeatedly wrote their name down with a red pen. What is loyalty, amirite?
Why we love it: We love a good e-sports challenge! The episode was set up in a big game room with a desktop for each member (and socially distanced, too!), and two commentators to let viewers know what was going on amidst the chaos.
They first played Among Us and needed to vote on who the impostor was, and then they played the Bombs and Bubbles mode of Crazy Arcade where Soobin absolutely dominated.
TXT soft chaos moment: Soobin and Beomgyu were minding their own business, completing their in-game mission together. They run into Hueningkai and Beomgyu is killed instantly, sending even the commentators into shock!
Cue Soobin and Hueningkai immediately screaming and blaming each other so they don’t get voted the impostor – even though it really was Hueningkai!
Why we love it: This was definitely one of To Do’s more laidback episodes. They were spending the day at an offsite location, pretty much in full control of their time and activities.
They did have to play a game at the start to determine who would have the most ‘time’ on the schedule – each member was then assigned certain time slots wherein they could decide what the group would do.
They could eat, rest, swim, play video games, whatever they wanted within their allotted time period.
TXT soft chaos moment: There were many little pockets of laughter scattered throughout, but the laugh-until-I’m-crying bit was when Beomgyu, always the little chaos gremlin, decided to get their staff involved in a game of his own.
He ordered six cups of Americano but asked that one of them be mixed with soy sauce and salt.
Five of the staff members and Hueningkai played rock, paper, scissors to determine who could choose a cup first…no one could have guessed how badly Beomgyu’s game would backfire on poor, innocent Hueningkai!
Why we love it: Because we love a Christmas episode – with a twist!
In the previous episode, the members played a few games that determined the order they could choose two mystery gifts from the pile. Episode 64 picks up when they have two gifts each, and that’s when the fun begins!
They received hints about what was in the gifts they picked, then had to pick ‘actions’ from a basket in turn.
These actions were “move your gifts two spaces to the right”, “switch one gift with one from another member”, and the like; essentially meaning you could end up with a completely different gift from the one you started with or really want.
TXT soft chaos moment: Right at the end, when Yeonjun is opening his present!
His clue was “laptop”, leading them to assume it would be a brand-new laptop. However, when he opened it, it was a toy laptop made for little kids!
The gutted look on his face while the other members fell over laughing…priceless.
Why we love it: There’s really only one way to describe this episode: a hot mess.
Both episode 70 and 71 were just a constant barrage of random games that pitted them against each other because the member who hit 100 points would get to go home already.
The catch was, that they had no idea what the rules of the games were; the game would just start and they’d have to figure it out as they go along.
That meant lots of running, yelling, and betrayal, of course!
TXT soft chaos moment: Even though he’s the oldest member, the others really just won’t let Yeonjun have a moment of peace.
Hueningkai and Taehyun, the group’s youngest, were the last to go home and they decided to get a little revenge on those that left early.
Soobin and Beomgyu didn’t buy into their trick but Yeonjun looked floored when they told him that as the losers, they’re the ‘real winners’ – with a brand new Samsung flip phone as a prize!
Why we love it: Cooking episodes always make it into this Hall of Fame for variety shows!
There’s always so many things that could go wrong, especially when you have a group of young men who, frankly speaking, can’t really cook.
Episode 78 is the last installment of their three-part cooking special; it started with Taehyun (who is the only TXT member who can cook) making dishes for the others, who then had to grade him.
Right at the end, Taehyun pulled a surprise reverse Uno move: now they had to pair up and cook what he made!
TXT soft chaos moment: We knew Episode 78 would be hilarious because it paired up the introverted leader, Soobin, and the chaos-starting extrovert, Beomgyu.
It was clear that neither really knew what they were doing, but they made up for their lack of know-how with a mini-performance while waiting for the potatoes to boil.
Sadly their dancing didn’t help; during their food-tasting portion at the end, Soobin was determined to prove that his garlic potatoes were edible by eating them first… but he ended up spitting them out right away!
The look on Yeonjun and Hueningkai’s faces said it all.
Why we love it: It’s always a bit of a bummer when a member is missing from any kind of filming and in this episode, Hueningkai is stuck in quarantine.
Instead, they’ve pulled out a life-sized cardboard cutout of him to hang around while the other members are setting up to play computer games.
They’re baited with food and told to order, but there’s a catch (as there always is): they can only eat their food if they can beat the production crew in the games!
Every time they lose, more of their ordered food goes to the crew instead. For growing kids like TXT who are perpetually hungry, that’s a LOT at stake.
TXT soft chaos moment: These guys are experts at disputing a loss, and they were convinced that the staff had practiced the games they played and that’s why they kept losing.
They fought so hard (albeit unsuccessfully) for rematches amidst the crew teasing them with “thanks for the free food” messages.
When they finally won some food, Yeonjun’s yell for some ramyeon really says it all.
It was absolutely adorable how they obviously have such a good and friendly relationship with the staff, though!
Why we love it: Before BTS did their flying yoga special episode, their 후배 (hoo-bae, a term for ‘junior’ in the same company or industry) experienced the fun (and pain) of it!
None of them are known to be particularly flexible and the struggle was pretty obvious as their talented instructor guided them through various poses.
Needless to say, there was a LOT of grimacing and screaming (which really explains Beomgyu’s award that you’ll see later in Episode 99!).
TXT soft chaos moment: The constant screaming and complaints of “Oh my leg!”, “I’m in pain”, Yeonjun’s “It feels like my body will end up uneven”, Hueningkai’s “The floor is too far!”, and Taehyun’s “I feel like my leg will get cut off” will have you snickering all throughout the episode.
Towards the end, each member had to do individual poses and they simultaneously voted to have Yeonjun do the most difficult one.
He did it successfully, but his screams of pain had the other members in fits of giggles.
Why we love it: These boys love a good competition amongst themselves, and we know that a few of them are pretty fond of computer games as well (looking at you Hueningkai, Soobin, and Beomgyu!).
What better way to get premium content than to turn a FPS game into reality?
In Episode 91, the boys are midway through a laser tag survival game with Soobin, Yeonjun, and Hueningkai on one team, and Beomgyu, Taehyun, and their manager Jisoo on another.
TXT soft chaos moment: It was evident almost immediately that Beomgyu was set to be the “ace” of their team; the other team’s members hardly had room to breathe during a respawn before one of his shots brought them down again.
One instance of this was Yeonjun falling target to one of Beomgyu’s shots immediately after respawning!
He retaliated by foregoing the laser gun altogether and just madly sprinting after Beomgyu instead.
Another hilarious moment was when their manager Jisoo snatched the “point bonus cards” straight out of Yeonjun’s back pocket (a sneaky move that really just proves how close the TXT members are with their management!).
Why we love it: Under normal circumstances, a pajama party is always fun and super chill.
Fortunately for us, TO DO is never meant to be normal, and therefore, their idea of a pajama party is literally just having the TXT members compete in pajamas!
TXT soft chaos moment: One of the games they played was one typical of any sleepover: a (very modified) pillow fight.
Members would have to perch themselves on the log you see in the photo, which rolls at every slight movement and thus making it extremely difficult to move, let alone actually get into a pillow fight!
Much to everyone’s surprise, it was Soobin who ended up dominating that game!
The struggle to not only stay on but also toss their fellow members off the log was funny enough but honestly, any glimpse of Beomgyu in that ridiculous alien costume was enough to send anyone over the edge.
Why we love it: Somebody on the TO DO production staff thought it would be a good idea to let Hueningkai, the group’s maknae i.e. the youngest member of a group, decide what they would be doing for that filming.
Granted, the reason behind that is totally fair!
Like we mentioned in Episode 79, poor Hueningkai missed out entirely so he was given the freedom to decide what they would eat and do – and he opted to play computer games, of course!
TXT soft chaos moment: MOA (the name of the TXT fandom) will know that leaving Hueningkai in charge means the other members will be subjected to something embarrassing, and that came to fruition right at the very start of the episode!
He introduced them one by one, and they all had to ‘reveal’ themselves in a cutesy way – much to Yeonjun’s chagrin. It was also Yeonjun that was the highlight for this episode!
Hueningkai had chosen a horror game where occasionally, a ghost or demon would pop up in front of players at random.
Yeonjun was a target of several of these surprise attacks; not only was his petrified face hilarious but on the third scare, he just fully fell over in his seat.
Why we love it: As is tradition (at least, it was done with BTS’ version of TO DO, Run! BTS), the 100th episode is celebrated and extra special.
With TO DO, they were to have their own awards show based on past TO DO episodes, followed by a couple of competitive games for extra awards (although these games played out over Episodes 100 and 101!).
TXT soft chaos moment: One of the awards to be given was the Vocal King Award, but don’t let the positive name fool you.
As a pop group, you would think that this award was for the best singing performance, but not when you’re talking about a variety show!
This time, it was for the member who was always screaming the loudest during filming and the nominees were Soobin, Hueningkai, and Beomgyu.
Not gonna lie, Beomgyu was an easy shoo-in for that award!
Another was the Knowledge Award for the member who always used his brain.
As the group smarty-pants, Taehyun was the obvious choice for that. However, the uproar and disbelief from Yeonjun and Hueningkai when literally no one else was even nominated alongside him was just too funny.
Why we love it: The last game they played for their 100th episode special involved them getting gifts from the production staff based on what they had wished for a few episodes prior: an LP player, new phones, a new laptop, and speakers.
The catch was, they first had to determine which of the two wrapped packages presented to them contained the real gift based on clues – pick the wrong one and they’d get a dud gift instead!
TXT soft chaos moment: Like Episode 64 mentioned above, this was also a Christmas episode and these gifts served a double purpose as their holiday presents.
And like Episode 64, Yeonjun once again drew the short end of the stick.
He had picked the gift for a “new Apple” in the hopes of bringing home a new phone since he said his current contract was coming to an end. He picked up the box and knew IMMEDIATELY that it was too light to be a real iPhone; he opened the box to see a note from staff that simply said “an apology”.
On top of not getting a new phone, what makes it worse is that this ‘apology’ was also a play on words: 사과 (sa-gwa) is the word for both ‘apology’ AND ‘apple’!
So he did get his new apple… just not at all the one he was hoping for!
Why we love it: Usually the TO DO episodes are competitive games in the sense of physicality — speed, strength, or luck.
They’ve had a couple of games that require brainpower and strategy such as the mafia games, Episode 97 where they needed to find briefcases and their respective codes, and the escape room episode, among others.
In this episode, they’re taken to a makeshift “town” where they need to look for clues, use these clues to decide on a store to invest in and how much, and earn the most “money” to become the town president!
TXT soft chaos moment: It was generally adorable how excited the TXT members were while watching (very well-produced, very realistic) news segments to figure out if their investments were good or bad, and while at the bank to collect their earnings (or losses).
Beomgyu, in typical Beomgyu fashion, ignored all the hints and decided on investing randomly.
Though he literally left the fate of his money up in the air, seeing him kneel to pray for his random investment to go well was just too funny.
