SM Entertainment To Debut NCT Hollywood & NCT Tokyo, Not All NCTzens Are Happy
It seems like most NCTzens share the same sentiments regarding NCT's upcoming units. Notably, SM Entertainment is gearing up to debut two new units under NCT: NCT Hollywood and NCT Tokyo.
In 2021, SM Entertainment revealed that they are partnering with the US company MGM Television Worldwide Group and Digital. The main reason is to produce a survival show wherein the winners will make up NCT Hollywood.
Lee Soo Man, the founder of SM Entertainment, will be a mentor to the trainees as the show progresses. With him will be other members of NCT. When the announcement was initially reported, NCTzens were not happy.
WE NEED A UNIT FOR SUNGTARO AND A COMEBACK FOR WAYV NOT NEW UNITS WHY DOES SM KEEP DEBUTING NEW IDOLS WHEN THEY HAVE SO MANY TALENTED ONES WAITING FOR A COMEBACK AND A FIXED UNIT — yowan (@yongxlfs) May 30, 2022
Recently, reports have appeared regarding another NCT unit. Supposedly, SM Entertainment is also preparing a new NCT unit for Japan called NCT Tokyo. Once again, NCTzen's reactions were divided. Though as of writing this article, NCT Tokyo has not yet been officially announced by SM Entertainment.
During the time NCT Hollywood was initially announced, NCTzens believe that it was unfair to the current NCT members.
NCTzens think that if SM Entertainment debuts a new NCT unit, it would not be fair to the other NCT members who are currently mismanaged. Furthermore, fans believe that WayV should get more attention overall.
The way SM only uses WayV as their tools to prove the globalization of NCT's system but when in reality, always mistreated them, excluding them from the brand most of the time, holding them back because they're foreigner, and WORST, ONLY PROVIDES 7 STAFFS TO MANAGE THEM ALONE. — A R A (@thenamesiIove) May 30, 2022
Thus, NCTzens have gone on to voice their opinions even louder on social media. Notably, the fans believe that SM Entertainment should improve their treatment of the other NCT members before debuting more units under the boy group.
