How do you show love and support for your favourite idol stars? Well, K-Pop fans usually shower their dearest Oppas or Unnies with loads of gifts such as lunches, food carts, and even a star!
However, SM Entertainment has announced that they will not be accepting fan presents and birthday gifts for their latest idol rookie group, NCT U.
Although the boys only made their debut in April, they have already achieved immense fame and built a large following.
In their statement, they thanked all the fans who supported and cheered on NCT U, emphasising that the boys will follow a “no gifts” policy from now on.
The manager in charge of NCT U said, “We’ve made a final decision regarding all of your questions to support NCT, in that we will not accept any support or birthday gifts. If there are any forms of support that you have prepared, we will kindly refuse, thanking you for your kind gesture, so even though you may be disappointed, please understand and follow our request”.
After the announcement was released, some fans took to social media to express their disappointment. One fan commented, “They should’ve told us sooner. Now we have to return and refund all of the support and funds raised”.
Even so, that won’t stop K-Pop fans from giving other forms of support. We’re sure they will come up with some new and unique gift ideas ;)
The brand NCT, short for Neo Culture Technology, is a new male idol group project by SM and different units will debut based in different countries around the world. The project’s first sub-unit, NCT U, consist of 6 members including Mark, Tae Yong, Ten, Jae Hyun, Do Young, and Taeil.
