Teaser image revealed for NCT's China unit 'WayV'

After months of speculation, it appears the first teaser image for NCT's China unit has been revealed.

On December 31 KST, it was revealed that NCT's China new unit is named WayV. Two social media accounts on Twitter (@WayV_official) and Weibo (WayV_Official) shared an image of the unit group.

The members are (From Left to Right: Kun, Yang Yang, Winwin, Lucas, Ten, Xiaojun, and Hendery). The Weibo post also revealed that the first public stream/video of the group will be revealed on January 1 at midnight Beijing Time.

 

Fans noticed no mention of NCT or SM Entertainment anywhere in this first image teaser and they're under a label called "Label V." This is a joint venture between SM and Chinese label "Label V." Fans believe SM is taking this path to give the group a better chance to succeed in China. What are your thoughts on this?

  1. WayV

For those wondering: 威神 = Wei Shen = Vision


Their original name was changed from NCT Vision to 威神V, probably focus group surveys showed people in China couldn't remember NCT Vision or something along those lines.

Not sure why their English name was changed to WayV though, maybe they couldn't trademark Vision on its own and didn't want to go with NCT Vision. meh

The Chinese name is basically Vision, 威神=WeiShen=Vision.

Don't know why the english name isn't vision though.

let's be honest if they hit china they will be x100 times more money makers than NCT. SM really needs to step up in the game, NCT aren't rookies anymore.

Lucas is Half Thai and Half Chinese. Ten is ethnically Chinese but his nationality is Thai. I am not too sure about the rest but I'm pretty sure their full Chinese.

He's either part or full Chinese but is from Thailand. Not uncommon for those from Thailand since a lot of them are of Chinese descent.

I don't like how the name isn't NCT related but from a business standpoint, I can understand why they did it even if as an NCTzen, it frustrates me.

I'm mostly surprised SM managed to create a group that's almost 100% Chinese.

...I wonder who will leave first :D (I'm sorry, I just had to.)

I'm going to get downvoted for this most likely. Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back. We'll see if there's any.

The fact that NCT and SM isn't mentioned makes me think that they are going to stay in China forever and that's it just like Lay :(

Probably why they didn’t add any of the chinese nct dream members in there too. They will probably have a comeback soon without mark. But since sm don’t give a fuck about winwin it’s ok he’s there. He’s just a little add on to nct 127 in sm’s eyes. He doesn’t need to be with 127.

Joint venture? I hope SM already prepared the necessary plan. Foreign companies that did joint venture with Chinese companies (in other areas of industry) are usually used for some years then dumped after stealing the resources from their partner TT

From what I read online (not 100% true), even with China-Korea relationship getting better, they are not up to allow Korean Entertainment companies enter the country, so Label V (the label which they are signed) is like a Chinese branch without SM's or NCT's name to avoid any kind of problem.

nct overall is still a flop. Sm brand name is no longer powerful these days. So no diff even if they used diff agency name bc in the end it will still be a flop. Lmao
