NCT China Is Set To Debut This Year!
Brace yourselves, NCTzens – NCT China is coming soon!
The much-anticipated NCT sub-unit is finally becoming a reality as SM Entertainment announces their debut before 2018 ends!
On August 13, SM Entertainment posted a cryptic image at 12 AM KST which served as a graphic teaser regarding the big announcement. A few hours following the teaser, SM fills in the image with a reveal of NCT’s upcoming activities for the latter half of the year.
The image serves as a line-up of NCT’s activities after the promotions for NCT 2018 came to a wrap earlier this year. Before NCT China could debut, comebacks will first arrive from the two NCT sub-units NCT 127 and NCT Dream to fire up the second part of 2018.
In the lineup, NCT China is connoted by the question mark in the image due to it still being a “working title” according to SM Entertainment. NCTzens have long been speculating and hoping about NCT China’s debut and SM Entertainment’s confirmation had driven the keyword “NCT China” to Twitter’s top trends after the announcement.
SM Entertainment’s founder Lee Soo Man previously stated that the unit will include NCT’s Chinese members and will focus on promotions in China. Although no official line-up has been reported yet, fans speculate members Kun, Lucas, WinWin, Renjun, and Chenle to make up the unit, with more members possibly added later on.
Fans also predict that the new subgroup will take on the name NCT 116 instead, following the Seoul-based NCT 127’s concept of using Seoul’s coordinates.
Meanwhile, SM Entertainment tells fans to look forward to NCT’s new sides and various activities that will fire up the rest of the year.
