Some people have been asking me about this group so seeing that I'm on lockdown, I may as well spread the joy that is NCT 127.

Yes, they are a Kpop group. Yes, there are a lot of members, but they are very talented and they have a lot of great songs.


The members (L-R)

Haechan, Taeil, Mark (Canadian), Taeyong, Jaehyun, Doyoung, Yuta (Japanese), Johnny (American), Jungwoo.

Right! Now that you know who is who, let's get to the music!


Simon Says is always my go-to NCT video when I start to binge watch their MV's.



Limitless is my favourite NCT song. Don't let the whack outfits and dodgy hairstyles fool you, this song is amazing! Especially the chorus!



Their newest song, Kick It, is their biggest hit to date.

Here is the English version of their song Regular.



Chain is another great song of theirs. If you like noise, you'll like this.




Superhuman
was their first song after signing with Capitol Records last year.




Here are some other videos you might enjoy.


Cherry Bomb




Touch





I'll add some more songs later and will explain other NCT units :)

The NCT units have SOLID albums. The production is great plenty of vocal harmonies and depth. Tons of vocal and production layering on their tracks. Not as complex nor as as noisy as Basement Jaxx, but their definitely maximalists.

Try listening to them without visual and you'll hear what I mean.

Interesting, thank you. Isn't this the group that had a collab with Jason Derulo? That's how i kinda discovered them when i was visiting the nail salon. I saw an interesting discussion online where someone said that NCT doesn't get a lot of love for their Visuals from fangirls because they look more 'handsome' than beautiful/cute', what do you think of this?

Granted, the whole bullying thing with Taeyong put me of any interest in discovering their music but i'm willing to give them a chance because i have heard lots of great things about their songs.

Now for the NCT units. NCT U will be the only one I'll tell you about today. If you want to know about the others feel free to ask and I will tell :)


NCT actually consists of 21 members, but 127 is its main unit.


Black on Black has 18 of the members and it's a pretty solid track in and of itself.

Standing (L-R) - Johnny, Jaehyun, Yuta, Kun (Chinese), Jungwoo, Mark, Doyoung, Taeil

RriErJ26StjmRXezQ09CxTIC2iNdSTTV_9nwRRjwvFdPIB_ToAD14DHyxvY4jloqUhqCZd_W7_Qa5aL43vOJPL2gjnf6f-fnqHxO8HhQshDrwO_PRzPiHLcvecE26x0AqSQ1tF1RN4w


Sitting (L-R) Chenle (Chinese), Ten (Thai), Taeyong, Jeno, Jisung, Haechan, Jaemin, Lucas (Thai/Chinese), Renjun (Chinese), Winwin (Chinese)




Ok, now on to NCT U.

NCT U is a revolving door for NCT members. Some will be included on some tracks and others won't be. One song will have member, A, E, F and H, while another will have A, B, C, D, I, J and L.


Boss is probably their biggest NCT U track to date.

Here is a photo of the members in Boss.


(L-R) Winwin, Doyoung, Jungwoo, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Mark, Lucas

I should have probably put this song first, but whatever. The 7th Sense is NCT's debut song. It came out in 2016.


The 7th Sense members;

(L-R) Ten (an incredible dancer), Jaehyun, Doyoung, Taeyong, Mark

YEAH LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME NEW THANGS. NCT 127 is one of the few kpop groups I stan. At first I was a bit intimidated at the prospect of learning 20+ members, as EXO with 12 was quite hard for me, but I sure as hell did it.

Yep! You're correct!



NCT definitely have a "harder" image than other Kpop groups. I think this is why I like them so much and why they are so popular in the west.


The reason for you not giving the group a chance is exactly why the bullying nonsense gets brought up almost every comeback - it puts people off the group. He called someone fat when he was 13/14 and it still gets brought up to this day. :disdain

That and the fact that NCT has so many subunits +members, even more than your typical 9/12 members of a kpop group, kinda puts people off the group.

But like I said in another thread, Taeyong does seem to regret his behaviour and tries his hardest to correct his negative reputation +puts the group above his own feelings, so I don’t really care for the scandal anymore. Besides people can always change + regret things that happened years ago, especially as a teenager.

But I’m going to listen the songs you have recommended to us so I will be back later.

Thank you

:laugh2 At least we're on the same page! Do you think it's good noise or bad noise? Do you prefer their less noisy songs?

The songs I mentioned were definitely bad noise lmao. I like NCT U and Wayv's sound though. I literally just messaged my friend this morning after she sent me Dream's song

LOL! I think I might have write about Dream on here tomorrow. Do you like SuperM?

Dream is so endearing to me lol. I liked them even when they were on that chewing gum bullshit.

I don't feel strongly about SuperM. I like No Manners and 2 Fast, but they played them with Jopping.

It's time for another instalment of Getting to Know NCT 127 and the other subunits!


NCT Dream consists of NCT members who are 20 and under. Mark, who you have seen a lot of so far, was in Dream before he aged out and "graduated"; Haechan is still in the group.

The original NCT Dream had 7 members.

(L-R) Mark, Renjun (Chinese), Jeno, Jisung, Jaemin, Chenle (Chinese), Haechan

A lot of their songs are really childish to me so I'm not going to bother posting them.

These are the ones you need to know :)


Go



We Go Up



Drippin'



After Mark graduated we were left with 6 members. This was their first song after his departure.


Boom



This is their newest song Ridin'

I'm back with my next instalment of Getting to Know NCT 127 and the other subunits!


I thought it would be a good idea to post some of their live performances so you can see what they can do in real time :)

Let's start with their first live performance of
Kick It. They have a great intro dance to kick things off.



Their comeback stage for
Cherry Bomb is still talked about to this day.



This is an
NCT U joint, but it definitely deserves to be posted along with the other fantastic 127 performances! Enjoy Boss!



This is the
NCT Dream comeback stage (performance) for Go. I think you will definitely like this one!



Here are 18 of the members performing
Black on Black.
