BigHit Entertainment broke the internet when they revealed the first member of their new boy group TXT, Yeonjun. Now the second member in the lineup, Soonbin, is gaining fans at the speed of light. Not much has been revealed about him, but here’s what we’ve learned so far.
1. He is the second TXT member to be revealed to the public
72 nail-biting hours after Yeonjun was revealed, the world was introduced to the second member of the group, Soobin.
In his teaser, Soobin is portrayed as a carefree spirit with a bright smile and a bright personality to match it.
2. His age
In a press release, BigHit Entertainment revealed that Soobin is a 00 liner, which would make him 18-19 years old, depending on when his birthday is.
Right now, netizens believe that his birthday may be on January 14, 2000. If this is true, it means he turned 19 on his debut day!
3. His height
At 181 cm/5’11”, RM is the tallest member of BTS, but he may no longer be the tallest idol at BigHit Entertainment. Soobin is believed to stand at 184 cm tall or 6 foot tall!

BigHit Entertainment has revealed that Soobin is the leader of TXT. Netizens’ research says that he may be either a member of the vocal or rap line, but this is unconfirmed.

Soobin was listed as the second rumored member on this and he ended up being the second official member to be revealed. If Soobin is part of TXT, maybe the rest of the rumored members are too?
