NCT’s Sungchan’s Pre Debut
NCT is known as a boy group who came from various places. Some of the members came from overseas, such as Canada, the US, Japan, Thailand, etc. The other members are originally from Korea but have different hometowns, such as Jeonju, Gimpo, Gyeonggi, or even Seoul.
Sungchan is one of the members who was born and raised in Seoul. He was born on September 13, 2001. There, he lived with his parents and his only older brother. Sungchan spent his childhood and teenage life in Seoul while attending the schools there.
Although it hasn’t been revealed yet, fans assumed that Sungchan had been a trainee since 2016. At that time, he was only 15 years old or 16 years old in the Korean age. That’s probably why he attended a middle school located in Gangnam, near the SM Entertainment building. After graduating and going to high school, Sungchan also attended high school in Cheongdam High School, located in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu.
In NCT, YangYang and Jungwoo both claimed that they had known Sungchan since trainee. Sungchan said that Jungwoo is one of the closest members to him in NCT. Jungwoo also becoming the one member that helped him get closer to NCT members.
If Sungchan has been a trainee since 2016, then it means that when he became a trainee was around the time where NCT Dream made a debut. Sungchan wasn’t included in the line-up for NCT Dream because he was probably a new trainee. As you may know, preparing for a debut takes several months.
But it was all just an assumption from fans since SM Entertainment, and Sungchan himself never confirmed that. What do you think about this? Will Sungchan join the NCT Dream line-up anytime soon, since his age is around NCT Dream’s members? Share your thoughts in the comment, please.
