In a recent livestream on Weverse, TXT member Yeonjun finally satiated fans’ curiosity about his conversation with American singer Sabrina Carpenter at the MTV Video Music Awards backstage.
TXT attended the 2023 VMAs on September 12 and gave an electrifying live performance with Brazillian pop star Anitta. They debuted their new song, “Back For More,” at the event, which was officially released on September 15 (KST). The group also won the Push Performance of the Year award for “Sugar Rush Ride.”
After the event, the internet saw many photos and videos backstage, which included some unexpected interactions of TXT with other celebrities like Karol G and Sabrina Carpenter.

TXT’s meeting with Sabrina went viral for multiple reasons. When she approached the group for a picture along with Anitta, Beomgyu’s funny reaction had netizens rolling. Another picture from their meet had fans intrigued where Sabrina could be seen laughing loudly at something Yeonjun presumably said.

Though a video of their interaction showed the two singers greeting each other, saying that they knew the other person, fans couldn’t wait to figure out what happened next that made Sabrina burst into a laugh like that.
yeonjun: i know you!

On September 14 (KST), Yeonjun hosted a livestream to celebrate his birthday with fans. While sharing stories from the VMAs, he ended up spilling what exactly he and Sabrina were talking about.
It turns out that Yeonjun told her that he enjoyed her movie Tall Girl, which made the singer laugh.

The clip immediately took aback MOAs, not because of the content of their conversation, but because many recalled that a fan had guessed this exact exchange a day before Yeonjun actually revealed it.
Hahahahah wait where is that moa x Sabrina account that said Yeonjun probably knows her from tall girl https://t.co/EQLiFc8fKW

Since the TXT member had previously talked about watching the Netflix movie Tall Girl, where Sabrina plays the supporting role of Harper, a MOA had made a joke on Twitter during the VMAs that Yeonjun probably recognized her from the movie.
yeonjun loves the tall girl movies and sabrina (unfortunately) was in it so thats probably where he recognized her from https://t.co/7COsz549RQ
