They have a lot of artists and groups, and out of the 17 million albums sold, over 10 million of that was NCT and its subunits! NCT Dream, WayV, NCT 127, and NCT 2021 all sold a bunch of albums! They are definitely getting super popular right now, and I hope SM gives them more opportunities to shine this year! Let Taeyong create more choreography like he did for "Zoo", and let Kun compose some of his own songs, perhaps even release his own mini album!
