Fans complain about NCT members' lack of screen time on 'Happy Together 4'

Taeyong, Jaehyun, Jaehyun, NCT
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 ㅡㅡ He's not a cardboard. Jaehyun put his hand up (to answer) but Jo Se Ho snatched it. I'm so aggravated ㅡㅡ"



"'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

Just because he’s not jumping around and acting extra all the time doesn’t mean he’s boring

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.

So I just finished watching the episode and I'm a fan of EXO, NCT, SHINee, and Boa (so I'm not biased at all). All I can say is that the MCs got more time than all of the guests. NCT got nothing, EXO got a little more, Key showed up half way through recording but got a decent amount, Boa got the most but she's the most outgoing guest. The MCs really just talked among themselves and then occasionally asked the guests about themselves.

that guy who commented "become popular if you're upset" shows that k-shows don't really care about you until you hit a certain level of relevance or popularity. the only way to bypass this is with variety skill or comedic timing. otherwise your best bet is stuff like Weekly Idol where the focus is solely on the idol group.

sadly that's how kshows have always been. Stars used to joke that they didnt get much screen time till after they had hit songs

tbh i haven't watched it like i feel like most people commenting here haven't watched it


if they ACTUALLY got a total of 5 minutes screen time between the two of them... yeah, there was really no point in having them. but if they got a reasonable amount, even if towards the "lower end" or reasonable... good enough. it happens.


hopefully they were treated well by those on and show and treated them well in return ^^ hopefully they also get more opportunities like this~~

jaehyun and taeyong ae quite shy and even with their own teammates they're kind of quiet and follow the flow, especially jaehyun. I don't really know why sm choose them, but don't complain about the lack of screentime, if they have nothing to say and that they can't be funny, it's like this, it's called a VARIETY show

why are they angry. if nct is boring and not interesting or don't have anything fun to say they will be cut from broadcast, not just nct any other artist will go through that if they are boring.

fans are funny they want "nct special" what will they air then...
