On April 4th, 2016, SM Entertainment announced NCT’s first unit, NCT U (the “U” standing for United). The subunit itself doesn’t have exact members. The members always change in every comeback, depending on who is suitable and appropriate for the concept of the comeback.

NCT U officially debuted on April 9th, 2016, with six members (Taeyong, Taeil, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, and Mark), and released the digital singles “The 7th Sense” (Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, and Mark) and “Without You” in two versions (a Korean version sung by Taeil, Doyoung, and Jaehyun, and a Chinese version with the addition of SM Rookies’ Kun).

 

In January 2018, NCT U (Taeil, Doyoung, and Jaehyun) released the single “Timeless” as part of the SM Station project.

On March 14th, 2018, NCT U released the singles “BOSS,” “Yestoday,” and “Baby Don’t Stop” as part of NCT 2018 Empathy, a full-length studio album that brought together all active units of NCT and grouped them under the collective name NCT 2018.

On February 9th, 2017, NCT Dream released their first single album The First, with its lead single “My First and Last.” But, unfortunately, Jaemin did not participate in the release due to health problems. As usual, NCT Dream had their comeback stage on M! Countdown, performing the title track “My First and Last,” and B-side track “Dunk Shot.”

On March 15th, NCT Dream released the single “Trigger the Fever,” as they became the official ambassadors for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea.

On September 3rd, 2018, NCT Dream finally released their second EP We Go Up, with the lead single of the same name, and followed by SM’s confirmation that Mark would be graduating from NCT Dream after completing promotions for the release.

On December 27th, 2018, NCT Dream released a single titled “Candle Light” under SM Entertainment’s digital music project, SM Station.

On December 31st, 2018, Mark officially graduated from NCT Dream.

On June 6th, 2019, NCT Dream shocked their fans by releasing “Don’t Need Your Love,” a collaborative single with English singer and YouTuber HRVY. Unfortunately, Haechan did not partake in the single due to ongoing activities with NCT 127. The song was released as part of SM Station Season 3.
