Concept

The variety show will continue for two days and in both days, TXT members will be participating in traditional Korean games like Yut with the rookie group Enhypen. The first round which is called the warm-up round comes with a set of advantages and winning that will be really beneficial for the next rounds. Eben though TXT members are technically seniors, the age gap between the two gaps is very less and this will only increase their bond, fans believe.
