Fans are angry about NCT members' lack of screen time on 'Happy Together 4.'

On November 8, the KBS talk show had an SM Entertainment special with guests BoA, SHINee's Key, EXO's Sehun and Baekhyun, and NCT's Taeyong and Jaehyun

Following the episode, fans of NCT expressed anger about Jaehyun and Taeyong's screen time. According to fans, the NCT members barely made an appearance and the MCs themselves had more screen time than the guests. The MCs also supposedly asked "rude" questions, demanding an explanation of the NCT system then continuously saying it's too difficult to understand. 

A fan tweeted, "What did I gain from watching 'Happy Together' for an hour and 40 minutes? Did NCT even get 5 minutes of screen time?"

Another fan tweeted, "'Why did Happy Together' even say NCT is making an appearance ?? He's not a cardboard. Jaehyun put his hand up (to answer) but Jo Se Ho snatched it. I'm so aggravated ??"

"'Happy Together', just don't invite them again if it's not an NCT special."

"Why did you invite NCT if you're going to do this 'Happy Together'.."

Contrary to the fans, netizens expressed different opinions. Comments stated, "It's not a fan meeting. They can't give focus to every single guest and match their needs," "Wtf you saying?", "Become popular if you're upset."

What did you think of NCT members' appearance on 'Happy Together 4'?

in all honesty programs will show whats interesting and people who make interesting comments etc for better ratings and for a more interesting episode. dont get me wrong i'm an NCT fan and i understand the frustration of their little screen time but compared to their SM seniors their variety skills are lacking when you're in the presence of Key and Baekhyun, and a kpop veteran like BOA. the editors probably just thought it was more interesting to put more screen time of the mc and other guests than NCT. it sucks yes but thats their job. to edit the episode to be an interesting one. it is a variety show afterall. the editors can't just keep the camera on NCT if they dont do anything worth the screen time in such a short program

Although, it is unfortunate that the boys did not get much screen time, I think it was to be expected considering that the others were experienced, witty variety idols. However, I do think the whole MCs being confused at NCTs concept was unnecessary and frustrating. I think if the MCs want to find out about the guest's general info, they should be briefed on this or do research before the recording since variety shows are to display the idols personality and talents (which they did well with NCT Lucas' episode). Honestly, I find it quite painful, watching them go to the trouble of explaining, only to be shut down every time (the same thing happened at weekly idol). Not only is the concept not one they made, it is also a constantly changing one and often SM even breaks their original rules, eg by adding members to NCT 127 which is supposedly a fixed group. As for screen time, I just hope the boys get another chance to shine.
