How the NCT Boys were Casted/Auditioned Into SM
You must have heard of them by now; they go by the name of New Culture Technology!
NCT’s first unit debuted just last week and were welcomed by the K-Pop audience with open arms. Just as SM Entertainment artists do, NCT U has yet to disappoint in delighting our K-Pop senses. Both talented and very-very-easy-on-the-eyes, the members were a big success in their debut stage last week on Music Bank. Although they have become this super-rookies-in-training, you may be wondering how NCT even came to be. How did SM find just the right guys for the right group?
Wonder no more. We have compiled a list of NCT members and how they came to be an SM Rookie/Soon-to-be NCT Member!
