NCTzens were in for a treat the moment the clock struck midnight to ring in the new year. SM Entertainment announced that NCT’s long awaited China unit would finally debut, with a confirmed line up.

WayV (威神V, WeiShen V) are the fourth NCT unit and the first unit to be based out of Korea.

With famous names in NCT who had appeared in previous units— such as Lucas who shook us all in NCT U’s “Boss”, Ten who appeared in “The Seventh Sense” when NCT U first debuted, Winwin of NCT127 and NCT U, and Kun who appeared on the Chinese version of “Without You” by NCT U— WayV already had high expectations.


With the addition of three new rookie members, WayV now consists of a total of seven members. With all members being ethnically Chinese, this is the company’s first time promoting an all Chinese membered group. Without further ado, let’s meet the the dashing boys of WayV!

1. Kun

Kun isn’t a lesser known name in NCT, echoing across many Internet platforms–screaming “Let Kun debut!” Fret not, NCTzens. The day has finally come! Standing proud and tall, he has been announced to be the leader of WayV.

  • Stage Name: Kun (錕)
  • Birth Name: Qian Kun
  • Position: Leader, Main Vocalist, Rapper
  • Birthday: 1st January 1996
  • Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
  • Nationality: Chinese
  • Appears on: NCT U “Without U” (Chinese Version), NCT 2018 “Black on Black”

2. Ten

A favourite of many; every NCTzen has been captured by Ten’s charms at some point. From his enchanting dance moves to his tongue-in-cheek humour; he definitely knows how to keep fans wanting more.

  • Stage Name: Ten
  • Birth Name: Chittaphon Leechaiyapornkul

  • Position: Main Dancer, Lead Rapper, Lead Vocalist

  • Appears on: NCT U “The Seventh Sense”, NCT U “Baby Don’t Stop”, NCT 2018 “Black on Black”, SM Station “Dream Within A Dream” and “New Heroes”.

3. WinWin

The quiet driving force behind NCT127, WinWin has been a part of the original lineup since their debut in 2016. However, he tend to take a backseat in terms in vocals and often showcases his dance skills instead. Maybe now it is finally time for him to shine!

  • Stage Name: WinWin (昀昀)
  • Birth Name: Dong Si Cheng
  • Position: Lead Dancer, Vocalist, Visual
  • Birthday: 28th October 1997
  • Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
  • Nationality: Chinese

4. Lucas


Nothing could compare to the meltdown that happened earlier last year when Lucas was first revealed to be a new rookie joining NCT U. Dripping with good looks and a voice deeper than Marianas Trench, this 99′ liner got the hearts of many noonas and hyungs beating twice as fast!

  • Stage Name: Lucas
  • Birth Name: Wong Yuk Hei
  • Position: Main Rapper, Vocalist, Center
  • Birthday: 25th January 1999
  • Zodiac Sign: Aquarius
  • Nationality: Hongkie

5. Xiao Jun

One of the new rookies to have debuted, Xiao Jun enchanted everyone with his impressive visuals. With his rather strong eyebrows and dark eyes, he definitely is one to watch out for.

  • Stage Name: Xiaojun (肖俊)
  • Birth Name: Xiao Dejun
  • Position: Main Vocalist, Rapper
  • Birthday: 8th August 1999
  • Zodiac Sign: Leo
  • Nationality: Chinese

6. Hendery

Hendery may seem intimidating at first, but he loosens up almost at once when he’s around his members. We loved seeing his interactions with Ten (nicknaming themselves Tendery) and how he’s taken a teacher position to tutor the older Mandarin!

  • Stage Name: Hendery
  • Birth Name: Wong Kunhang
  • Position: Lead Dancer, Rapper, Vocalist, Visual
  • Birthday: 28th September 1999
  • Zodiac Sign: Libra
  • Nationality: Chinese

7. YangYang


The youngest member of WayV; Yangyang is every bit as adorable as his name sounds. In fact when he was younger, he missed out on having a nickname because of how his real name already sounded like one!

  • Stage Name: YangYang (扬扬)
  • Birth Name: Liu YangYang
  • Position: Main Rapper, Lead Dancer, Vocalist, Youngest
  • Birthday: 10th October 2000
  • Zodiac Sign: Libra
  • Nationality: Chinese

So, which member caught your eye? Put yourself to the test by watching all gorgeous seven members stylishly debut in the Chinese version of “Regular”! However if you can’t seem to pick one bias, we don’t blame you. With looks that dashing, it’s quite hard to figure out where to look when all of them come up on the screen at once.
