SM Entertainment Confirms Connection Between NCT & WayV
Just recently, a member of SM Entertainment’s board of directors has confirmed that WayV is in fact a sub-unit of NCT, making the total number of NCT members at exactly twenty one.
And as for Label V, it was created for the sole purposes of exclusively managing WayV. The board member has also explained that NCT consists of several sub-units that have been created for different target markets all over the world.
WayV debuted with a Chinese version of NCT’s ‘Regular’.
Below are some of the responses from fans once they found out that their suspicions that the two groups are connected were right all along.
