Officially excused from Thai military service for said leg injury. Didn't live in the dorm during his hiatus, said he traveled quite a bit.
  • Shortest person in NCT?
  • He's the best dancer of a dance-centric group. He's a big deal. He was on a dance show called Hit The Stage, I recommend looking up his performances because he was amazing
  • Has two SM station songs that are some of my favorite songs in the entire NCT discography: Dream in a Dream side note: can you spot the lucas (dance version one and two) & New Heroes (dance version)

    8. Jaehyun

    Name: Jaehyun
    Real Name: Jung Yoonoh
    Birth Year: 1997
    Units: NCT U (T7S, Without You, Boss), NCT 127
    Nationality: Korean
    Tame or Wild: Tame
    Role: Vocalist. Shadow visual. Dancer. Hearthrob.
    Lives With: 127, roommate Haechan
    Most Popular Ship: Taeyong (Jaeyong is an overrated ship but I love them anyway)
    Actually Closest To: Johnny? (again spends most time with him)
    Random Shit:

  • My bias.
  • Jaehyun, sometimes called Yoonoh, called Jay in the States, and picked up the nickname Jeffrey somehow (cough Johnny)
  • Lived in Connecticut (USA) for 4-5 years when he was young, is basically fluent in English now
  • SM loves to promote him, Taeyong, and Mark so us fans live pretty easy
  • He's a real life Disney prince
  • Athletic, nice body says Taeyong pre-debut to present
  • He's not the best dancer but he has a center part in the dance break of Cherry Bomb and imo he can move the best in all the important ways
  • Part of cooking line
  • Part of gaming line
  • He can kind of do anything and get along with anyone
  • He was on Laws of the Jungle. Here's a short highlight reel. Here's a longer highlight reel I saved you hours of your life right there
  • Really really pale
  • Can't act or lie for his life, just look at him being unable to keep a straight face
  • Born on valentines day
  • Your faves say he's handsome and ask for his number on broadcast. literally mr. popular. wow.
  • don't forget he's part of vocal line even though his voice is very distinct
  • his favorite thing in the world is music
  • subjective meta time: a lot of people ask me why i love Jaehyun so much. he's not the best at anything in NCT, he doesn't have a standout personality, he's not the official visual. but he's one of those people who's always there, who you have to dig a little deep to get to. i'd describe him as like clear glue in 127. he gets along with everyone, never really shows an ego with other members despite being one of the most popular and sm favorites, doesn't really brag nor need people to hype him up. he doesn't want to be the loudest in the room, but at the same time he's not shy. he's a very happy and positive person without being overbearing, and I think that rubs off on people around him.
  • MUST-WATCH JAEHYUN VIDEO: a listener's confession,

    9. Winwin

    Name: Winwin
    Real Name: Dong Sicheng
    Birth Year: 1997
    Units: NCT U (Boss), NCT 127
    Nationality: Chinese
    Tame or Wild: Tame
    Role: Visual, dancer I guess??
    Lives With: 127, roommates Taeil and Yuta
    Most Popular Ship: Yuta but I ship JaeWin
    Actually Closest To: Renjun. No question.
    Random Shit:

  • Winwin is my #2. I have little patience for people who do dumb things. But Winwin is the most endearing idol I've ever seen, and despite his dumb moments I have completely fallen for him
  • NCT calls him the blackhole charm --- once you see it, you're in deep and you can't get out. Myself, Yuta, and Taeil can vouch for this.
  • it's actually really cool watching Winwin 2016 - present because his korean improved SO MUCH
  • obligatory he's trained in chinese traditional dance
  • doesn't get lines I'm fairly sure less than half these lines in this video are actually his
  • everyone in NCT is in love with him but he's no one's bitch
  • named NCT 127's bias. named the boss of boss unit. he's really that bitch of NCT
  • part of gaming line
  • he's really pretty and adorable. everyone in NCT likes touching him because of it
  • he's really transparently honest in that nobody can really force him to do something that he doesn't want to do (including fanservice)
  • he will pretend that he doesn't understand korean if it gets him out of something he doesn't want to do
  • exo fanboy, bias is sehun. explains a lot.
  • I fell for Sicheng after watching: NCT Life K-food Challenge honestly this is my favorite season of NCT Life, it's ridiculous and fun

    Intermission 2: The Love Triangle

    There's an actual love triangle in NCT. In the form of roommates Winwin, Yuta, and Taeil. Here's the story.

  • Yuta has always loved Winwin since like pre/127 debut because they're both foreigners and Yuta wanted to take care of the other foreigner
  • Taeil has always thought Winwin was cute. Used to room with him early 127 days, then didn't and things got awkward when the crush became too much, and is now back to okay terms with him.
  • Now they both fight for his affection and for the coveted spot of Winwin's shipping counterpart.
  • But wait, Danni, this sounds like a dumb fangirl fanfic. Why is this important and why are you sharing this? Because NCT shares it with us, not the other way around. They had an official shipping poll on their Twitter after Doyoung made a video. Winwin had no say in this. Yuta is very happy.

    So, Danni, if this is a thing, how serious of a thing is it? Well, this is what we know:

  • All Winwin does is play video games, and Taeil tries to distract him by 1) being obnoxious around him, 2) being even more obnoxious around him, 3) working out around him in hopes of seducing him. It doesn't work
  • When defining love, NCT used the phrase what Taeil feels with Winwin
  • Yuta watches romantic animes then tells Winwin to say lines of the female protagonist.
  • Yuta has Winwin as his phone wallpaper.
  • If you don't believe a word I say, watch this Vlive. I can't make this shit up.
  • Some other notes regarding this I want to say --- 1: I don't ship either of these. I ship JaeWin because unrequitted love is nagl. 2: There's an added element --- Johnny one-sided loves Taeil. That's a story for another day. 3, and what you should really get out of this saga: Winwin has 127 wrapped around his finger. He's that bitch. You better stan.

    10. Jungwoo

    Name: Jungwoo (aka ZEUSSSSSS)
    Real Name: Kim Jungwoo
    Birth Year: 1998

  • speaking of hiding, he's been in sm rookies since pre-NCT. but he just debuted now. wyd sm
  • the definition of soft
  • his signature is my favorite
  • actually talks like those memes that are like ˢᵖᵉᵃᵏˢ
  • sends everyone in NCT into a gay panic, including easy mode boss taeyong, regular mode boss doyoung, hard mode boss jaehyun but he could not defeat ten
  • 11. Lucas

    Name: Lucas
    Real Name: Wong Yukhei (Cantonese)/Huang Xuxi (Mandarin) NCT usually defaults to Xuxi when they forget to say Lucas
    Birth Year: 1999
    Units: NCT U (Boss) likely to be in NCT China
    Nationality: Hong Kong, is ethnically half Chinese and half Thai
    Tame or Wild: The most wild
    Role: Rapper, Beautiful Human, Loudness, Eater
    Lives With: Kun, Jungwoo
    Most Popular Ship: Jungwoo (but I'm waiting for Mark/Lucas to be a thing. Just you wait)
    Actually Closest To: I have no idea, Kun?
    Random Shit:

  • he hit us like a freight train
  • I have no idea what he's fluent in. I'm assuming Cantonese. He's more comfortable interjecting with random English than Korean or Mandarin. He may be on a Thai show so he may speak some Thai? We really don't know
  • His mom is from Thailand, and he says he visits Thailand about once a year
  • he is the highlight of NCT 2018
  • fun fact i screamed the first time i watched Boss when he started rapping. It was 2 AM. full-on scream.
  • He just joined NCT this year and has stolen every fan's heart
  • no filter

    Lives With: 127, roommate Doyoung
    Most Popular Ship: Haechan (aka MarkHyuck). Also the most popular and best ship of NCT period.
    Actually Closest To: Haechan
    Random Shit:

  • there is no way he's not a gryffindor
  • he's like the opposite of me so this is really hard for me to write
  • doesn't stop rapping. Freestyles on the streets of LA. supposedly raps in his sleep.
  • easily SM's favorite. There was an SMTown set list where I counted, and Mark had the most stages. Out of everyone in SMTown. props.
  • he speaks english like a stereotypical second gen bro
  • all of NCT loves him but I think he loves 127 more
  • successful xiumin fanboy
  • CANNOT COOK. DO NOT LET HIM IN A KITCHEN. don't even let him hold a non-butter knife.
  • the cutest thing is seeing him grow up with the rest of NCT: middle school graduation -> high school graduation
  • all of nct adores him (evidence one, two, three) but no one loves him more than haechan
  • 13. Renjun

    Name: Renjun
    Real Name: Huang Renjun
    Birth Year: 2000
    Units: NCT Dream, NCT China likely
    Nationality: Chinese
    Tame or Wild: Tame but closer to the edge
    Role: Vocalist, Translator, Badass
    Lives With: Dream
    Most Popular Ship: Jeno, Jaemin Renjun made a point to announce that he bought Jaemin expensive sugar cubes for his birthday. This kid.
    Actually Closest To: Winwin.
    Random Shit:

  • rumored to be of Korean descent? Grew up bilingual? something like that
  • Exo fanboy
  • best vocalist in Dream aside from Haechan. But really, his vocals are great and underrated (chorus is like all him too, you'd be able to tell if it was Haechan)
  • hobby is drawing but apparently sucks at drawing
  • most fluent in korean of China line. He often translates in vlives and videos for the less fluent members
  • really what i'm trying to say is 1. he's a good singer, 2. he's a good dancer, 3. he's insanely good at languages. He did this all before he was 18. Why aren't you stanning???
  • violent child but at the same time is very emotional and sweet and caring
  • if you want to cry, search on youtube for videos of him crying. it hurts my soul but he's really a sentimental boy who deserves the world
  • revealed that when jisung becomes an adult, dream are going to have a fist fight on the rooftop. he wasn't kidding. this was on NCT Night Night and JohnJae's non-reaction still gives me life. like these kids are about to fight to the death and you just smile and nod???
  • 14. Jeno

    Name: Jeno
    Real Name: Lee Jeno
    Birth Year: 2000
    Units: NCT Dream
    Nationality: Korean
    Tame or Wild: So tame it's boring
    Role: Dancer. Visual of NCT Dream imo. Rapper. Buzz Killington. Favorite victim of confident gay attacks.
    Lives With: Dream
    Most Popular Ship: Jaemin? Renjun?
    basically Jaemin went on hiatus for an injury, renjun/jeno got popular, jaemin came back and nomin (jaemin/jeno) was full force again. instead of fighting like other shipping people the fandom decided on the ot3 of jeno/jaemin/renjun and everyone was happy. all 3 are really close. Haechan 4th-wheels all '00 line outings.'
    Random Shit:

  • overshadowed dance-wise by Jisung but has a center spot in black on black so take that, 127!! side note i honestly think its really funny that most of the center spots on that song aren't 127 folks
  • all of NCT calls him boring. he's no-fun / no-jam Jeno
  • NCT's resident cat lady
  • Doyoung's bias probably because Jeno is the least likely to give doyoung shit
  • related to the last bullet - this is the best thing to come out of the NCT twitter account
  • 15. Haechan

    Name: Haechan
    Real Name: Lee Donghyuck NOTE: he went by Donghyuck predebut, so it's common to see his name as Donghyuck
    Birth Year: 2000
    Units: NCT 127, NCT Dream see here? he's also in both units. not just mark! /endrant
    Nationality: Korean
    Tame or Wild: Wild
    Role: 4th vocalist of 127 but 1st vocalist of NCT Dream go figure. proud maknae of 127. aegyo king. king of learning other group's choreography.
    Most Popular Ship: Mark
    Random Shit:

  • is the worst little shit. Always has been, always will be
  • nickname is Full Sun, comes up a lot on the NCT twitter
  • is probably my NCT Dream bias and most similar to me personality-wise
  • insanely witty and quick-thinking
  • he has very unique vocals. some love it (me), some hate it
  • he looooooves aegyo. he loves being cute. i think he fits in a lot better with 127 just because he loves being the cute maknae
  • likes learning choreography of other groups, random dance battle king
  • he loves everyone and no one loves him
  • my favorite 8 second video
  • his confidence is scary high. he's just fearless, but gets shy when you compliment him
  • loves skinship and kissing members. everyone in NCT is fair game. the more unlikely they are to reciprocate, the better
  • in general a confident gay
  • wrote that his favorite thing was mark lee, and his least favorite thing was mark lee
  • responsible for my favorite nct videos ever. Haechan really tries to be close to as many people in NCT as possible.
    Markhyuck have been next to each other since SM Rookies, then pushed into two units together. They are polar opposites: Mark is timid, shy, endearing. Haechan is confident, brash, witty. They clash. A lot. But since they've been together so long and spend so much time together, they're insanely soft. Here's a summary of their relationship, narrated by them. Here is 22 minutes of Markhyuck content. Fun facts: they were supposed to room together before and couldn't do it, one night they had to trade rooms with other members. But Mark admits he goes to Jaehyun/Haechan's room when JH's not there to watch movies with Haechan. You may think their relationship doesn't matter, but it does. In 2017 fans noticed they were pissed at each other. It showed in performances, in airport pics, etc. We still don't know why they fought and how they made up, but that shit was serious.

    16. Jaemin

    Name: Jaemin
    Real Name: Na Jaemin
    Birth Year: 2000
    Units: NCT Dream
    Nationality: Korean
    Tame or Wild: honestly tame but he's still fun
    Role: Rapper and Dancer I guess
    Most Popular Ship: Jeno i LOVE nomin ok
    Random Shit:

  • he had an injury and skipped My First and Last and We Young. he only promoted in Chewing Gum and Go
  • they redid We Young choreo to be with 7 people so he's not awkwardly left out thank god
  • usually goes by Na Na
  • is sf greasy. all he does is talking about how much he loves NCTZens
  • everyone is so happy he's back
  • can cook. part of cooking line. competes with kun whenever they have vlive competitions.

    Most Popular Ship: Jisung, they're bffs
    Actually Closest To: Jisung. They're inseperable. Honorifics were confusing for Chenle so he just dropped it with Jisung because it didn't make sense. I'm not even going to link stuff about them here because you'll see it in every single Dream video you watch.
    Random Shit:

  • didn't train long
  • Jaehyun's bias so he's my bias just kidding
  • was famous child star pre-debut
  • lives in a bougie apartment with his parents instead of in the dream dorm when not promoting
  • LOUD but not as loud as lucas
  • likes imitating people. not in the kpop talent kind of way but immediately repeating what they're saying kind of way
  • people call him a Dolphin because he has a dolphin laugh (click at your own risk)
  • 18. Jisung
