On July 30, TXT became the first ever K-Pop act to perform at Lollapalooza. The crowd reaction to their setlist was incredible, and to make this event more special, their beloved sunbaes, Jimin and J-Hope from BTS also showed up in the audience, hyping them up!

Fans noticed the two standing near the barricade, bopping to the songs happily. This supportive gesture has touched the hearts of many as they found the bond between the two groups very endearing.

It wasn’t just BTS members in the crowd supporting TXT, though. A lot of ARMYs showed up with their lightsticks to cheer for the boys as well. But even more surprisingly, the founder of Big Hit Music, Bang Shi Hyuk himself was also in the audience with a major ‘supportive parent’ energy!

Though all the members of BTS and TXT share a lovable dynamic, J-Hope and Jimin have always been very vocal about how they adore their juniors, giving them nicknames and hyping their performances.
