‘NCT 2021 Universe’
  • An incredible unique group in K-Pop, NCT releases music primarily within their set sub-units (NCT 127, NCT Dream, and WayV). Ensemble projects are rare for this group, although they have served as an opportunity to add new members (having transitioned from 6 members in 2016 to 23 members currently).

Their previous full-group comeback, NCT 2021 “Resonance,” added two new members: Sungchan and Shotaro, who joined the group without fixed sub-units.

  • The ambiguous status of these two members, and clues on the posters, have led fans to think that SM is planning to add new members to this upcoming ensemble project.
about NCT

NCT Explained:

NCT is one of the most different groups in K-Pop. From the design to structure of the group to the music itself, NCT is a group that forms its own genre.

Debuting under SM Entertainment with the concept of having infinite members, this super-group has become the home of 23 talented members who specialize in everything from dance to rap and vocals.

  • Although NCT did not start with 23 members, it has grown as more members join through ensemble projects or new sub-units.

Except for the two members who joined in 2020 (rapper Sungchan and rapper/dancer Shotaro), all of the members of this group have an official NCT sub-unit that they perform in.

  • Sub-units are like independently functioning groups within the overall group. Each of the sub-units of NCT has a unique style and concept.
  • Having many members makes this group incredibly versatile and flexible since there is a member skilled in any imaginable genre of music.

In addition to the permanent sub-units, NCT also includes the temporary sub-unit, “NCT U.”

  • This sub-unit has no set number of members and can be any lineup of members and any style of music.
  • Some of this sub-unit’s most memorable tracks include “BOSS,” “Coming Home,” and “90s Love,” among many others.
