    I see NCT Lucas often get hyped up on i-fan forums, as if he were all that and a bag of chips. In comparison Kang Daniel became Korea's it-boy overnight and loved by man female fans but internationally he isn't as favored. What makes one more attractive than the other by different audiences? Is it because Kang Daniel's seems more "ethnic" than NCT Lucas?

    uhh i never really thought about the comparison to kang daniel i always thought the ideal type favored by korea would be park jihoon (i didn't really follow produce 101 that closely though i love wanna 1)

    but lucas is definitely popular because of his looks -- but also his personality is just really ???????? funny and adorable??? i think that's what makes him hyped up the most. the combination of his looks and personality.

    i can't really compare him to daniel, but i don't really find anything that comparable or similar about them? daniel is adorable too

    Probably their personalities. I don't really know much about Daniel but Lucas is one of the loudest and weirdest members in the group right now. Also different cultures prefer different things

    I dont really get this comparison cause Daniel is the most popular member in Wanna One internationally

    Plus when produce 101 s2 started, Daniel actually started off as an international fave, but then his korean fanbase increased tremendously after sorry sorry fancam and Wanna One's international popularity isnt as big as NCT's.

    But lol, if I had to give a reason, i-fans like Lucas cause he's a meme

    Honestly, now that you have mentioned the two side by side, I can't help but feel they're actually really similar. I guess the main thing that differentiates the two amongst the audiences is that the I-fandom doesn't care about Wanna One as much as the K-fandom and the K-fandom doesn't care NCT as much as the I-fandom does. So that's the main reason why one would be preferred over one audience than the other in my opinion.

    Both of them are loud stan attractors with with crazy personalities. They both have charisma on top of that and both are handsome (subjective) and they have talent too. I mean, Lucas is one of the members that speaks the least Korean yet somehow he's the member that speaks the most out of all members he's with when they're having live broadcasts. Daniel isn't as crazy as Lucas but he's just as loud and is somehow always in your face as well. They're both childishly cute. They're just really similar in my opinion. So like I said, the main reason I see one being preferred over the other among different audiences is simply because their groups are more hyped in one audience over the other. If W1 was a group I-fans liked, Kang Daniel would be hyped up like Lucas is and if NCT was a group K-fans liked, Lucas would be hyped up like Kang Daniel.

    The fact that Lucas is a foreigner and speaks english is going to increase his attraction to foreigners, so it makes sense.
    His personality is very out there, kind of reminds me of some members of BTS, who are also obviously very popular internationally.
    Those idols with quirky, so-strange-you-almost-worry-if-they're-okay-in-the-head type personalities are very endearing :)

    I don't think a lot of international fans have watched produce 101 so maybe they don't really know wanna one very well? domestic fans will more likely watch these survival shows since they can vote and stuff.

    That's what you get for being born with a perfect face.
    We don't know how it feels so it can't be real

    He is Korea's It boy, plus his visuals were never the main reason why Daniel is so popular

    Is it his personality? Cause I still doubt its any different from most kpop boy idols.
