Member Profile of NCT 127: Bio, Fan Facts, History etc.

NCT 127 is the second sub-unit of the boy group NCT formed by SM Entertainment. NCT has two concepts called “Timeless extension” and “The open-door policy.”

“Timeless extension” means that the number of members is unlimited.

On the other hand, “The open-door policy” means that the members always change.

Profile

The group currently consists of nine multinational members, Johnny (USA), doYoung (South Korea), Win Win (South Korea), Mark (Canada), Taeyong (South Korea), Jaehyun (South Korea), Taeil, (South Korea), WinWin (China), Haechan (South Korea) and Yuta (Japan).

Debut and Success

NCT 127 has made their debut on July 7, 2016 through their appearance in the Mnet TV music program M CountDown (2004-present).

Their first album was NCT #127 (2016), which has been released online all over the world since July 10.

Five members of the group (Mark, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Taeil, and WinWin) previously started their career as the boy group NCT U three months earlier and won first rank of the KPOP music video chart.

Because this group is consisted of multinational members, such as South Korea, Japan, China and Canada, so their agency, SM Entertainment will expand the group’s activity to such countries.

Moreover, the agency plans to have a NCT group debut in each big city in the world to make KPOP become well-known to people around the globe.

We will soon be able to see NCT groups’ activities in any parts of the world.
