The time has come for the first unit under Neo Culture Technology (NCT) to be announced!
NCT is a new concept that will take the SM Rookies and have them debut as units under one name and concentrating on specific regions. The announcement of NCT was brought to light at SM Entertainment’s press conference in January where they also announced the STATION project, ScreaM Records and a few other ideas.
Fans of the rookies can rejoice as SM has finally released the first posters and videos for the new unit called NCT U. According to SM, ”NCT U represents all units of NCT, and is the 1st unit which will drop 2 new singles on April 9th and 10th and its members’ teaser videos will be presented in order.”
In the first unit will be Mark, Ten, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Doyoung and Taeil. For those following the rookies, SM actually gave fans hints in trailer number two for NCT titled ‘Synchronization Of Your Dreams’ on the song and who would form the first unit as four out of the five guys were featured dancing in the video.
You can also follow the rest of the rookies on SM Entertainment’s app SMRookies Entertainment, where you get to be the producer and help take care of decisions made for the trainees. Recently, the members of NCT U were congratulated for graduating from the trainee program much like Yeri did when she joined Red Velvet.
The agency did reveal that while a track will be released on April 9 and 10, their first official performance will be for ‘ON AIR NCT Show’ through the V App on April 9. Heechul of Super Junior is to be the MC as fans will get to meet the boys more officially and get to know them a bit more. This performance is to be multi-cam so the viewer can choose where to focus their attention to. It hasn’t been decided what music shows the group will participate in but the discussions are underway to finalise this debut.
