Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog 😀
In this post, I’m going to be talking about NCT U. This is one of the new boy band that recently debuted a month ago on April. They’re part of S.M Entertainment, as you guys may know by now that S.M is one of the top music labels in South Korea. NCT stands for Neo Culture Technology, and it’s going to have many sub-units all around the world. NCT U is just one of the units based in Seoul, Korea and there are going to be more in different countries like in China, Japan, etc. I’ve heard many rumors that the founder of S.M, Lee Soo-man, is trying to dominate the K-Pop world with this upcoming plan, which I found to be amusing yet true.
Since K-Pop is so popular now that this new idea of having numerous sub-units with in one group is a fairly new concept. Especially because it has unlimited members. Basically, they can recruit new members as as much as they’d like and don’t have to worry about replacing the old members if they do choose to leave. I think S.M Entertainment is taking this approach because EXO, a very popular boy band under their company had complications. 3 out of 12 members left and filed a lawsuit against them. They were under a 10 yr contract but then later decided that they didn’t want to be part of the group anymore since 10 years is such a long time.
More about NCT U, it has six members and their names are Mark, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Taeil, Ten and Doyoung. The age range is from 16- 21, Mark (16) the youngest one is from Canada and Ten (20) is from Thailand. They have international members. All of them have been trained under the S.M company for a long period of time and finally got to debut this year. I’ve watched their music videos, dance videos, and their variety shows and I’ve grown to like them even though they’re a new group. They’re extremely talented and I’m looking forward to see more of them and their music!
