    ... or a new NCT unit?

    NCT has by far the best set of rappers of SM. Period
    And the best set of dancers as well, all units have at least three A-grade dancers. Every SM group have great dancers, but they have great dancers in abundance

    But when it comes to vocals, even if they have a solid vocal line (Taeil, Doyong, Xiaojun, Kun, etc), I still thinking its the weakest SM male vocal line. TVXQ, SHINee, EXO and Super Junior all have strongest vocal lines

    SM already had many chances to put new strong vocalists (a total of 6 members were added to NCT since last year) and their vocal line still good, but not awesome. I think it's clear that SM choose NCT members based on their dance ability first (so they can all have extremely hard dance routines), but the questions is: What about their vocalists?

    SM is the company know for their top-notch vocal training, so I wonder if the new trainees are receiving focus on vocal skills. With a new upcoming boygroup (or new upcoming NCT unit) set to release next year, maybe this time will we get a strong vocal line, as strong as their older groups?

    Discuss. I'm curious to see what is coming next

    SM seems to be moving away from vocal focus period. Just look at SuperM.

    Only two solid vocalists in the group. I mean Taemin and Baek are all they really need, but still.

    Out of 7 members, only 2 are vocals.

    I suppose the new bg would be completely different,so I'm hoping that's the case.

    Vocals have always been their thing and they should flaunt it,a lot of the main vocals' in nct are having their talent wasted tbh

    I dont think they are hiding any "great" vocalist for upcoming projects or anything

    Nct is so big with multiple (rotational) Units that you lose track on who is who. Not to mention how nct is more of a hip hop group with dance oriented tracks. Unlike the previous bg sm had.

    How would any nct vocalist be popular when all sm cares about pushing are two rappers

    Tbh.

    Taeil has some real chops. Like, I was shocked when I heard Superhuman, and Haechan impressed me too. Most of their sub-vocals could be main in other groups.

    taeil,doyoung,jaehyun,jungwoo,haechan - all incredible singers

    and for whatever reason they were all shoved in the hip-hop oriented nct 127,where most of them don't get proper limelight because it's dominated by the 2 rappers of the group

    superhuman, touch was more the vocal side ppl ignored it.

    Nct vocal lines have one of the best vocal tones in kpop.

    I think the same too, even tho NCT main vocals are good they are not powerful enough for an SM group. I hope we can see stronger vocals in the new bg

    I think NCT's vocals are weak for SM because NCT is more of a performance group than it is a vocal group. Every member can dance well to a certain degree and even their worst dancers aren't noticeably bad. If SM's planned boy group actually isn't a new NCT unit then I could easily see it being more vocal heavy to perform more Ballad like songs to appeal to the KR public more.
    It reminds me a bit of f(x) and Red Velvet.
    Because while Luna is SM's second best female vocalist the rest of the group were incredibly lackluster vocally and they were more performance oriented.
    While Red Velvet have the best vocal ensemble in an SM girl group and arguably the best harmonies in Kpop their performance abilities leave a lot to be desired.

    Facts. If SM wanted to promote the vocals, NCT has the talent to do it.

    Do you mean tvxq 5 with Junsu and jaejoong had a stronger vocal line than nct? Because Changmin and Yunho most definitely do NOT have a stronger vocal line than nct.

    i think SM should just focus on vocals like they used to instead on leaning towards rappers. NCT is not bad too their Main vocal is not the strongest but on average they have more better vocalists than a few SM groups.

    and Taeil deserves better than what he is getting now. He dropped out of Hanyang University to continue trainee/idol life. He is 25 now so Military enlistment is on the way and NCT is still kinda unknown in Korea :sweatr:

    SM specifically said:

    a NEW idol boy and girl group.

    so it is a new Boygroup, and not a NCT Unit.

    I can’t wait for Yunseo to debut (He’s a SM trainee from the sources the fans saw). If so SM is actually good at finding trainees that look like their artists

    Well, I watched him on Treasure Box and apart the fact he looks like Minho I found his participation in the show underwhelming

    Besides, it's odd to see SM debuting a YG leftovers

    True, TVXQ as 5 had the strongest vocal line in Kpop until Suju debuted with Kyuhyun.

    Agreed, NCT's more vocal oriented songs is pleasing because they have less awkward singers
