Meet Lucas, The Charismatic NCT Member That Will Make Your Heart Flutter!
Not long after he debuted, he managed to steal a lot of girls’ hearts with his hilarious actions. He is the kind of guy that will always make us smile, not only because of his charming face, but also because he is a cute weirdo. Who is the guy that we’re going to talk about? If you have guessed Lucas, then you’re right! He is the weird NCT guy that has a lot of charms.
On April 5th, 2017, SM Entertainment officially introduced Lucas as one of SM Rookies trainees. In January 2018, SM officially stated that Lucas will be joining the group as the new NCT member. His real name is Wong Yuk Hei and his stage name is Lucas. He’s a Chinese from Hong Kong, who was born in Hong Kong on January 25th, 1999. Although he was born in Hong Kong, he actually has some Thailand blood in him, inherited from his mother’s side, so basically, he’s half Chinese and half Thai.
As Lucas was born in the same year as NCT’s Mark, he thought that he was going to participate as a member of NCT Dream in the song titled “Chewing Gum,” but he didn’t, which made him feel quite sad. Even so, he was featured in NCT’s Ten music video titled “Dream in A Dream” that was released for SM Station in 2017.
A year after that, he officially debuted as an NCT member after he was included in the NCT U sub-unit for the single titled “BOSS.” At the beginning of 2019, along with other Chinese members and Ten, Lucas debuted with WayV, a sub-unit of NCT in China. They debuted with the song titled “Regular.”
With his fun personality, he has been promoting his group in many variety shows and it has made him quite popular. He also has a really stunning visual and looks a little bit like his senior from SM Entertainment, SHINee’s Min-ho. He’s also funny and has entertaining skills. That’s why a lot of people love seeing him on TV, especially when he talks about how he learned Korean.

In this show, Lucas will get the taste of how it is to be in the Korean army. He trained in the 3rd Infantry Division in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province. Lucas was reported to have a fit physique as he did 80 push-ups and sits ups, which demonstrated that he is strong enough to join the show.
However, this show is not a joke, and not anybody can join in. Even though it is a variety show, Lucas and the other celebrities have to follow the rules and all the training that they have to undergo, even though it is somewhat hard for them.
Let’s see some clips of Lucas in Real Men!
Lucas in Law of the Jungle
Not only he is as strong as an army soldier, but Lucas can also adapt to the wildlife, which we can see from his appearance in the Law of The Jungle episode, filmed in the Maldives.
In the beginning, he said that he had a lot of ambition and fire in his heart. He also said that he wasn’t scared of mosquitos since he is a powerful king kong. The cuteness of Lucas and his own language!
Lucas in Knowing Brothers
In Knowing Brothers, Lucas was invited as a guest along with Got7’s Bambam, (G)-IDLE’s Yuqi, and Joon Park. They are all born and raised outside Korea and they talked about how they have adapted to live in Korea, how they learned the language and also talked about the culture in their own country.

Since this was the first time an NCT member to join the show, he felt honored and the other members also felt proud of him. In this show, he talked about how handsome and how confident he is, and also his background story in Hong Kong. His handsome face made everybody in the studio amazed, even Park Eun-hye could only see him, just like the rest of us!

In November 2018, Lucas participated in SM Station Season 3 collaboration with Jonah Nilsson, a Sweden musician, for a song titled “Coffee Break.” The song was originally released in July 2018, by Jonah Nilsson featuring Richard Bona. Lucas does the rap part where the lyrics are about flirting with a girl that he likes. The song is of the Jazz genre, and we can clearly hear the amazing piano sounds by Jonah Nilsson.
