A Guide to NCT: Reference to NCT future fans

It’s NCT U’s 1st month celebration that’s why I did this. 

Note: Other SMROOKIES members are included and the thread is filled with inside jokes. Ask me if you can’t relate to something. Don’t be shy. I do not bite.


What is NCT?
NCT is a new boy group created and produced by SM Entertainment. Basically, NCT will be composed of units that will localize KPOP. They plan to debut the group on different cities of the world. NCT doesn’t have a definite numbers of members and the members have the rights to choose the unit which they want to promote in.  NCT U is the first unit which debuted under the NCT system. It has 6 members: Taeil, Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, and Mark It is the Korean unit. It is divided into two team. Members Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun and Mark will promote under the first team. Their title track is called The 7th Sense. While promoting The 7th Sense, Jaehyun and Doyoung will promote with Taeil, the vocal line, as the second team. Their title track is called Without You. This is what SM means when they said members can promote under different units. As of now, only Doyoung and Jaehyun are the members that can be classified as the “rotational members”.On the 9th of April, SMROOKIES Chinese members, Winwin and Kun, joined NCT U on their debut stage in China.

Additional rumors: The producer of 7th Sense said that NCT currently has 50 lineup as their members . Basically there are 50 members competing for a spot in NCT. NCT is not just a group divided by units because of target country, but they are actually divided into genres also. Apparently, SM is preparing for an EDM unit and RnB unit. And according to the producer also, NCT has an alpha unit. It’s not confirm whether the alpha unit is NCT U or not. The alpha unit has 6 to 7 members and they are the only unit that could release a full album. The other units can only rely on releasing mini albums. Also, a sub-unit should debut with a member from alpha unit. What I mean to say is that a member of alpha unit should be included in each units. Nothing is confirmed nor cleared with these rumors. Let’s just wait for SM.


What is the connection between SMROOKIES and NCT?
Back in 2013, SM Entertainment created a predebut group called NCT. It is divided between the SMROOKIES girls and SMROOKIES boys. Red Velvet’s Irene, Wendy, and Seulgi used to be a part of the SMROOKIES girls. SM introduced 15 members of the SMROOKIES boys. They are Taeil, Hansol, Taeyong, Johnny, Yuta, Kun, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, Winwin, Mark, Jeno, Donghyuck, Jaemin, and Jisung. According to some sources, the SMROOKIES members are all already confirm as members of NCT. SM Entertainment created an application called Rookies Entertainment. Here, the fans are given the authority to produce their own boy group. The producers can receive daily pictures from the member they cast. The SMROOKIES members also have their own live shows called SMROOKIES Show. In this show, they showcase performances cover of another group and their own songs. Six of the SMROOKIES members already debuted under NCT. They are Taeil, Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun and Mark.
