Hansol: “HOW IS HE AS TALL AS A TOWER?” Kun: “They aren’t ‘selfies’ they are portraits.” Jungwoo: After crying. “I have deep seeded emotions.” Yukhei: After being killed in OverWatch. “WHO DOES SOMBRA THINK SHE IS?” Quietly. “Sombra…”
Now I know that all of us are super happy and excited about Yukhei and Jungwoo being confirmed as official SM Rookies. However, I’m not expecting a debut from them just yet. I am, however, expecting a debut from Kun and Hansol (but let’s be honest, when are we not expecting a debut from Kun and Hansol in these theories?)
If SM debuted Hansol and Kun soon, that would mean the there would be no boys left in the official SM Rookie lineup because they were the only two left. SM have announced Yukhei and Jungwoo now, probably as a replacement for Hansol and Kun as they will be debuting soon. That way, SM Rookies Boys won’t be empty. (We still got the girls that SM seem to have forgotten about…)
Every SM Rookie has been a Rookie for at least a year before debut and the only members who debuted without being members were Renjun and Chenle.
Sadly, I don’t think Yukhei and Jungwoo will be debuting anytime soon as SM will want to promote them as Rookies more. It feels weird to me that they would announce them as Rookies and then debut them in a couple months. If they were going to do that, I don’t think they would have bothered with announcing them as Rookies like they did with Renjun and Chenle.
The good new though is that I think this is a very very good sign for a Kunsol debut very soon!
If SM weren’t planning on debuting Kunsol this year they would be putting them out in SR17B content, but they aren’t. This makes me think they aren’t going to be in SR17B because they’ll be in NCT instead. And to be honest, it’s about time
Other Chinese actors in the sequel, which has been filming in Australia, include Wesley Wong, Lily Ji, Chen Zitong, Lan Yingying and Qian Yong Chen with cameos by Xiao Yang and Korean actor Kim Jeong-Hoon.
my thoughts are
-hansol is gonna be in the next new nct unit or in the next lineup change
-kun debuts late this year or early next year
-jungwoo and yukhei debut next year or maybe the year after
-none of these will actually happen as i thought, all my previous theories have been wrong
