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

AKP STAFF

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?

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
