The NCT project is just wasted potential....

    I feel like there's no direction to SM's 'Neo Culture Technology' project with apparently "unlimited members". Are they trying to pull an AKB48 here with the number of members & the location-based units? The group is very difficult to get into for such reasons & their situation is further worsened by the quality of their releases - most of them being relatively sub-par, if you compare with their peers. The NCT units are also under performing for an SM group. Furthermore, I personally believe that the members are insanely talented with great potential & visuals, but they're almost never given the right songs that can truly make them shine. They've accumulated 18 talented members now, which is too much, in my opinion. It is impossible to show the talents of all the members. Some are bound to overshadow the others( I know this happens in every group, but due to the member count, it would be far more evident in NCT's case). However, I will still look forward to NCT 2018.
    (I love Ten's solo material though.)

    nobody stan them for music anyways, its just for visuals, dancing and fanservice, so yes exactly like AKB48 (minus the dancing in their case)
    i mean they're already selling decently already

    I think the main problem is that they aren't getting great songs that would really to the general public. It clear that sm gives exo their best songs since exo is where all the money comes from but once exo focuses more on doing world tour and some members will go to military service, I think nct will have their time to shine just like what happened when most of suju members enlisted, sm became more focused on exo

    sadly most of their fans got into them because of their different style of music

    Their music isn't public-friendly at all. I find their songs to be failed experiments. (Also, Taeyong's 'Around' is the worst song to come out of Kpop, in my opinion. The track is pure noise.)

    I do think sm is now learning from their mistakes, like nct's recent releases like boss, bds and touch is leaning more on the general public side than on the experimental side and also considering that their album sales reached 300k and their songs are charting higher than before means that more people are listening to their music and is slowly getting accepted by gp. Once exo members start to enlist or will focus more on acting, doing world tours, etc, I think nct would've a chance of getting great songs since we all know all the good songs go to exo's album where sadly most of exo bsides are better than most of nct's title songs.

    I guess AKB48 was the general idea, and I'm sure it sounded great on paper. Well, it is actually a smart scheme. One of the advantage is, they're able to follow the current concept trend and pick suitable members to execute them in the right time. Not to mention, almost every debut-ready trainee who were previously trapped in the dungeon gets a chance at being on stage. Alternating between members, group concepts is genius in theory. The thing is, there are few things they overlook in the process. I've been watching how SM manage NCT, their questionable decision makings. I personally have a bone to pick with them. But there's no point in me ranting further.

    NCT is a group formed to create global idols btw so they'll not focus of korea/kpop but more on bringing kpop to different parts of the world, just so you know

    Touch by nct127 was a great song imo, mysteriously it didn’t gain public interest
    Their releases haven’t seemed sub par at all except for black on black

    ikr, they are good, and black on black really isn’t even a song, i consider that song as a performance song more than a song to sing, like to showcase their dancing skills.
