One of the sub-unit for SM Entertainment’s newest and largest male group, NCT U, made their debut over the weekend with 2 different tracks – “The 7th Sense” and “Without You”.
To ensure that their debut will be a hit, SM teased fans with many promotional images and videos since last week. So far, the entertainment agency has introduced NCT’s first 6 members to the public.
The group consist of Mark, Tae Yong, Ten, Jae Hyun, Do Young, and Taeil (from left to right), all aged between 17 to 22. Mark and Ten are the group unit’s non-Korean members, whereby Mark is Canadian while Ten is Thai.
“The 7th Sense” (일곱 번째 감각) is a typical slow burn hip hop and rap track song has a psychedelic element to it and it feels like something Drake would produce. The aim of the music video is to showcase the group member’s (excluding Taeil) killer choreography skills and visually, it is a trippy video with illusionary lighting effects and glass boxes.
On the other hand, their 2nd track, “Without You”, is very vocal oriented.
It is a contemporary rock ballad that boast the talents of Taeil, Jae Hyun, and Do Young. The music video is made in a way that shows the members’ emotions about the girl they cannot live without.
NCT U made their live debut on stage at the “16th Top Chinese Music Award” last Saturday (9th April), performing both songs in Chinese, making them the 1st K-Pop group to make their debut in a Chinese award ceremony.
NCT, “Neo Culture Technology”, is a new project by SM Entertainment and different units will debut based in different countries around the world.
