SOOBIN, YEONJUN, BEOMGYU, TAEHYUN, and HUENING KAI released “minisode 2: Thursday’s Child” on May 9th along with an accompanying visual for their lead single, “Good Boy Gone Bad.” The song, described by the members as a hip hop track with rock elements, is about the darker emotions a boy feels after a breakup, more specifically, a breakup that occurs in the midst of a transition between being a boy and becoming a man. The official music video perfectly showcases these feelings through the members’ impeccable acting skills where they showed off various emotions, from raging anger to uncontrollable tears, the growth and maturity TXT has gained thus far since their debut a few years ago, is palpable through their music and performances.
