June Comeback Theory
We’ve been screaming for a while. This is the conclusion we came to. Here’s why:
1) Johnny recently dyed his hair very black. This seems like comeback hair - his previous hair had roots showing but you couldn’t tell and it didn’t look bad, unlike some of the others, so there was no reason for him to dye his hair. Also, when idols change hair for their comebacks, they always work with darker colours first. Also also, Johnny attempted to hide it by wearing a hat and he really isn’t a hat person on a day to day basis. Mark didn’t attempt to cover up his hair when he changed colours.
2) Every other SM boy group has an almost set comeback date for the second half of the year - EXO in July or August, SHINee in September, SuJu is confirmed for October, TVXQ will probably come back in November and then we’re just in time for EXO’s annual emo Christmas release. June to early July is the only time NCT will be able to promote without overlapping with a senior group.
3) Rookie groups needs to have at least three promotions a year, probably more, if they want to stay relevant. NCT needs to promote more because their concept will turn away casual fans - they need to promote so everyone finds *that* song and *that* member which makes them stan, otherwise potential fans will leave. When EXO didn’t promote constantly as rookies, they were considered a flop group.
4) If they weren’t going to have an NCT comeback soon, Hansol would be included in the rookie content. Seeing as he isn’t in rookies, Hansol is probably debuting.
