NCT Members’ Current Activity
As a boy-group that has many sub-units and also has many members, it is natural that they also have several different activities outside their respective groups. Like the four members of NCT who just debuted as SuperM on October 4, 2019, with the title song “Jopping”. The four members are Taeyong (NCT 127), Mark (NCT 127), and Ten and Lucas (WayV). They joined with their sunbaenim’s (Taemin from Shinee, Baekhyun and Kai from EXO). As a group that just debuted, they were busy with the promotion schedule.
NCT Future Plans
Recently, a leaked document from SM Entertainment has made waves among NCTzens around the world to present plans in 2019-2020 for the NCT subunits. The document highlighted the expected start of NCT Indonesia in the future, but it also addressed membership changes in other NCT subunits.
NCT Indonesia is expected to introduce four new members who have not yet been introduced.
NCT 127 – Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Mark, Jungwoo, Haechan
NCT Dream – Jisung, Hyung-tae, Jin-young, Young-won
WayV – Lucas, Ten, Winwin, Xiaojun, Hendery, Kun, Yangyang, Renjun, Chenle
NCT Indonesia (Temporary Name) – Lucas, Matthew, Ten, Kim, Nanda, Jason
NCT X – Jeno, Jaemin, Jisung, Taesung
Meanwhile, the range of NCT Dream will change drastically, because Jeno, Jaemin, Renjun, and Haechan (all of the 2000 line) will soon be “graduates”. Although this leaves two members, the range planned for the next generation of NCT Dream does not include Chenle. And this would make Jisung the only member of the original lineup, with the maknae now the oldest in the group. In addition to Jisung, the document states that he will be joined by new members Hyung-tae, Jin-young, and Young-won, who have not yet been introduced.
SM Entertainment saw the popularity of the NCT Dream members, who were not kidding, so it seems SM will be planning a new sub-unit called NCT X, that included current members of the NCT Dream (Jeno, Jaemin, and Jisung) and a new member, Tae-sung. Renjun and Chenle will make their long-awaited addition to WayV as the China-based of NCT.
In summary, the changes planned for 2019-2020 are the beginnings of two new sub-units, NCT Indonesia and NCT X, with the addition of three new members to the NCT Dream and the inclusion of Chenle and Renjun in WayV.
So, what do you think about the upcoming changes in NCT?
