Quiz: Can you remember which NCT member is in which sub-unit?
Neo Culture Technology is currently the biggest K-pop band around – and we mean that literally. They have the largest number of members of any active K-pop band in 2020. They go by NCT for short and have so many members they have to divide themselves into subunits: NCT U, NCT Dream, NCT 127, and WayV.
Large bands with subunits are no new thing. K-pop bands like Girls’ Generation and EXO have done it. It’s an excellent marketing move since each subunit can cater to a certain regional fanbase. It’s a win-win situation: NCT-L gets more love & attention and SM Entertainment gets more branding opportunities – not to mention the ample selection of biases to choose from.
With twenty-three members in a K-pop band, it can be difficult to remember which member belongs to what subunit. Unless you’re the ultimate NCT stan, it seems almost impossible. Care to test your NCT subunit knowledge? We thought so. Don’t forget to tweet us your score at @FilmDaily.
