Yeonjun became close with ATEEZ because they’d trained together. Fans speculated the particular members to be Wooyoung and Yeosang when they were all Big Hit Entertainment trainees together.
txt's yeonjun said he trained with ateez and theyre friends and WE KNOW hes obviously talking about wooyoung and yeosang since they met when they were bighit trainees 5 years ago which is the same time yeonjun trained and now i NEED an interaction between the rookies of the year

One fan even went as far as deeming ATEEZ the younger brothers of BTS along with TXT. Based on the fact that they trained under the same company, it makes sense in a roundabout way.
YESSSSS OMG I TOLD YALL ATEEZ ARE BTS’ SONS JUST LIKE TXT

Fans were also quick to hope for a friendship between TXT and Stray Kids. Then, all the popular rookie groups would be friends with one another.
Ok so yeonjun talked about being friends with yeosang and wooyoung from ateez, but now all that's left is for beomgyu to mention being friends with a stray kids member (jeongin) pic.twitter.com/cdKIGCkjoN

The concepts of TXT and ATEEZ are on opposite sides of the coin, but a special rookie stage could be possible in the future, even including Stray Kids.
