Like seriously it’s 3 sub units
Not rocket science
'Cause they don't make efforts to actually search things up about them
I mean I guess I kind of understand. People barely want to check out groups with more than 5 members because "its too much to memorize" let alone a group with 18 members and multiple subunits without a fixed lineup. It can seem like a headache to keep up with for some
Because they keep saying they have a fixed unit and then they suddenly adds in a new member in there. Who knows NCT might become 20 members too in 2020. They keep going back to back with their answers of their groups. It also doesn’t make it less confusing either when the group based in Seoul and was only supposed to promote there had a Japanese debut and promotion there too.
THIS IS THE REAL REASON TBH
There are multiple sites that clearly explain how NCT works, like wtf
people just need to type "nct" and they get all the info they need
Because people are used to just one group promoting with the same members.
NCT has 18 members and teasers with all 18 members, but will not release a song with all 18 members. One unit has interchangeable members, which is a strange concept. The other two are "fixed" but also have a graduating system and also add members. Like, there are more members who joined NCT 127 after Fire Truck so they're not really fixed? Mark was allegedly supposed to leave NCT Dream, but he's still there. So is he leaving and if he is, when? When you've got 18 members, and your favorite is suddenly missing, that can be frustrating (maybe that's why they only push the three members, so people won't notice missing members). To be fair, it is really confusing.
Because it is.
127 was supposed to be fixed, then SM spontaneously added 2 members. They were also supposed to be the Seoul unit, but then they debuted in Japan. Dream was supposed to be a youthful cheery group with members 17 and under, but suddenly the age was raised to 19 and they took 127's more serious concept.
SM themselves seems to be confused about NCT, it's like they are improvising, so no doubt some kpop fans are going to be confused too.
What's the difference between having interchangeable members, and being "fixed" while having a graduation system and adding members?
it's not that hard and its unpredictable and exciting with the rotational unit (if only sm actually you know ROTATED IT c: )
interchangeable = using any of the members of ot18 (though they haven't used dream members aside from mark in nct u yet)
fixed = 9 members in nct 127 and that's that (the only time during debut they had 7 I believe and then decided to add 2 more but now it's fixed for sure)
graduation = nct dream when you reach a certain age you leave the group, new members possibly will be added to the group (as of now mark will leave but hasn't yet as he was in the most recent comeback and I don't think they'll be adding any new members any time soon at least I hope not)
I feel like SM kinda ruined NCT as a group though.
Multifandom everywhere. If you can recognize 18 people in 3 groups, you'll feel blessed.
18 people for only one group, people would get lazy tbh.
To be fair its far more work than any other Korean bg, but it is also more fluid and flexible. To be honest I think SM had far more male trainees survive the process and took a flyer on a permanent name style group. aka Menudo and several of the jpop groups.
Its a work in progress and that is why it is a bit ....messy.
That's what I'm saying
I originally found them very straightforward: NCT is a large group of idols, who are assigned to releases that make the most sense for their strengths.
And then SM had to go and make all the units overlap genres, so why they're separated at all is now confusing.
Because they choose to not understand.
