Boy group Tomorrow X Together have become the first K-pop group to grace NME’s online cover, according to Big Hit Music on Saturday.

The group photo was posted on the UK culture platform’s website after NME posted an interview with the group on Friday. The article followed Tomorrow X Together’s fourth EP “minisode 2: Thursday’s Child”, released on May 9.

The article described Tomorrow X Together as “curious genre lovers”, saying that “musical exploration is part of what led them to their status as world-renowned rising stars”.

It also featured the band as winners of the Hero Of The Year Awards at the BandLab NME Awards 2022, an annual music awards show in Britain which was founded by NME. The results were released in early March. Hero Of The Year is a fan-voted category and Tomorrow X Together won 40% of the votes.

In the NME article, the band members expressed their love and appreciation for their fans, known as MOA, which stands for “moments of alwaysness.”

“They cheer us on and whenever we’re down they lift us up, so we love them very much,” Tomorrow X Together’s Hueningkai told NME. Member Taehyun said the relationship between the group and MOA members is “very deep.” and a trusting friendship.”

NME is a British music, film and culture website that was founded as a newspaper in 1952. It turned into a magazine in 1996. It discontinued the print edition in 2018.

Tomorrow X Together debuted in 2019 with the song “Crown” and has five members: Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Huening Kai. The band’s last album was “The Chaos Chapter: Fight or Escape”, which was released in August with the title track “LO$ER=LO♡ER” (pronounced “loser lover”).
