SM To Debut A New Group In China (WAYV)
This group was previously known as NCT China. However, WAYV will not officially be considered an NCT Unit. Read more below to find out why. WAYV will make their debut in January of 2019. The members are NCT members Kun, WinWin, Lucas, and Ten. And SMRookies Hendery, Xiaojun, and Yangyang. This lineup will pursue promotions inside and outside of China and may join NCT's future activities. WAYV will be debuting through Label V, a label in which SM Entertainment has a joint venture with. This all being said, nowhere has it been mentioned that this group is a unit of NCT. Why? Well this all probably has to do with the tensions between China and South Korea. If WAYV were to bare the name of NCT tensions could potentially rise. However, if they don't then what could China do? I'm convinced this is SM's way of getting around the system. Though keep in mind this is only my theory, as nothing's been confirmed. Disclaimer: Since everything is still in the rumor phase as of now, I do not want to say that it's official they aren't an NCT unit, this is just how me and the team are reading things. Now onto WAYV, since they are basically or I guess a better term would be unofficially a unit of NCT, us in the NCT community will be posting for them!
