NCT's Mark Unveils Group's YouTube Dance Channel; NCT 127 Drops Teaser For 'Simon Says'
Korean boy band NCT has unveiled their new YouTube dance channel and member Mark was given the honor to introduce the site. Mark did a freestyle dance for the first content on the band's dance channel.
The group earlier released a 30-second countdown clip to tease the new dance channel. NCT's official YouTube account has been renamed as well to Channel NCT Dance.
The SM Entertainment idols are one of the Korean boy bands today that are praised for their on-point dance choreography. In a recent interview with Flaunt Magazine, the members of NCT sub-unit, NCT 127, opened up about the band's identity and the best things about being a member of a K-pop group.
"We all love music and dreamt of performing on stage. Our music itself is great, but what really makes us stand out are our performances," Doyoung said.
"The best part of it all is that we get to showcase the music we love to the world. We all work hard so that we can perform on bigger stages in the future. I can't really think of anything that's hard about being in a K-pop group; we all do this because we love it," Taeyong added.
Meanwhile, NCT 127 is currently preparing for the release of the repackaged version of their first full album Regular-Irregular, which was released last month. Regular-Irregular is currently at No. 9 on Billboard's World Albums chart. EXO's comeback LP Don't Mess Up My Tempo is on the top of the list for the second week in a row. BTS's three albums-Answer, Her, and Tears-are No.2, 3, and 4, respectively.
The NCT 127 repackage album will be titled NCT #127 Regulate and it consists of 14 tracks, including three new songs. The title track will be "Simon Says." The group also earlier released a teaser for the song and some promotional stills.
The repackaged album will drop on November 23 at 6 p.m. KST. The group will also hold a V Live broadcast from 8 p.m. on the eve of the release.
