An Amazing Journey of K-Pop Boy Group NCT: Learn Their Success Story
NCT has become one of the well-known boy groups in K-pop. But the group can get quite confusing with its multiple units, members, and even concepts.
NCT was formed under the SM Entertainment label. The name of the group means Neo Culture Technology, and the main idea is that it is a group with an infinite number of members who are mixed in different subunits.
As of 2022, NCT has 23 members; Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Kun, Doyung, Ten, Jaehyun, Winwin, Jungwoo, Lucas, Mark, Xiao Jun, Hendery, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Yang Yang, Shotaro, Sungchan, Chenle, and Jisung. The group is composed of 5 subunits; NCT U, NCT 127, NCT Dream, NCT 2018 and WayV.
