    I have been listening to songs by this group and while I applaud their use of darker/ grittier synth sounds in their work, I don’t really find them producing very many catchy hooks or song parts that are particularly memorable. They have the standard K Pop requirement of looks, singing/ rapping and dance skills but I rather get the feeling that this project is currently more style than substance.

    Do people think that they would be a success outside of a big company like SM? On another note do you feel that NCT are an attempt by SM to create their very own BTS, as I feel they are distinct from EXO but possibly closer in style to BTS.

    I mean... they're underperforming for the standards of a SM BG, so i'd say that probably no.

    I don't think other companies (except the Big 3) would have the money to invest in a project like this...

    Ain't that all kpop groups tho, just because they're talented and good looking doesn't mean they'll find success

    I was not aware that NCT were underperforming however this does not surprise me particularly. I am rather surprised at SME as they have a very effective strategy sourcing songs and producers, and would expect a far superior effort from a company of their stature.

    Not quite. other groups are talented but not that good-looking.
    NCT, as I have noticed, have God-level visuals with talent to back it up.

    You are right this is the default position, almost like a fundamental basic requirement of K Pop. Hence the viciously competitive nature of the K Pop industry

    In regards to NCT, bigger is not always better. It's overwhelming having a group with 18 members. And despite being so huge, they only really push Mark and Taeyong. It's frustrating to have changeable members because people are bound to be left out, so you can't really get attached to anyone. Plus their styling is terrible and their choruses are often just group chanting. They have good vocalists, would it kill you to write a melody?! That's why Touch is their only good song in the past year. And I know it's delusional to think that groups all get along, but I enjoy seeing chemistry in a group. When you have a group that large, they're not gonna be super close. I bet there are some members who don't know everybody's name for crying out lot.

    well if nct hadnt been formed by sm, then it would be a completely different group. nct is loved by their fans for their music (produced by sm) and their talents, which have been honed and nurtured by sm over the years (and technically their looks too but lets not take that into account for now). take sm out of the picture and its not even nct anymore.

    They certainly seem rather bloated from a member perspective. I suspect SME were overladen with talented trainees and thus were forced to make a difficult choice. 1. Let some leave as they were surplus to requirements. 2. Debut more than one group. 3. Debut a large group with respective sub units.
