If you aren’t already a fan of KPOP boy group NCT, listen to us when we say that now is the time to check them out! The group has officially announced their next large scale project, NCT 2020, a comeback that will include all of the members from their sub-units NCT U, NCT 127, NCT Dream, and WayV. Officially titled NCT 2020: RESONANCE Pt. 1, the album, which comes in two versions and already has over 110,000 pre-orders, will be dropping digitally on October 12th!
If you aren’t familiar with NCT, it can seem intimidating at first, given the group’s size and history, but fear not! At The Honey POP, we’re here to help you gear up for what we bet will be a historic comeback. We’ve got your back from what to expect during this comeback to NCT’s sub-units and learning about the new members.
Wait? Did You Say New Members?
Yes, you read correctly. Making NCT 2020 even more exciting is the debut of two new members, Shotaro and Sungchan! NCT’s story as a whole has always been about having a connection through “dreams and empathizing with one another,” using this connection to become one through music. Since the group’s debut in 2016, there has always been the idea been that they will have an unlimited amount of members and sub-groups. With each new unit of NCT, we have seen the debut of new members. For example, when WayV debuted last year, we saw the debuts of YangYang, Xiao Jun, and Hendery, which brought the once 18 member group to 21. NCT 2018 also saw the official debut of member Kun, so it is no surprise that we are getting to meet some new faces during NCT 2020.

What To Expect From NCT 2020
NCT 2020: RESONANCE Pt. 1 is building off of the themes that we saw in NCT 2018: EMPATHY, where each member’s unique talent and musical style will have a chance to shine, as well as through smaller collaborative units. The new album will continue where NCT 2018 left off; it will be about celebrating the power of connecting through music and “the powerful synergy and ripple effects that resonate from such a bond.” It will include 12 new songs, with the lead tracks being ‘Make A Wish’ and ‘From Home.’ Check out the full tracklist below!
- Make a Wish
- 백열등 (LightBulb)
- Dancing In The Rain
- Interlude: Past to Present
- 무대로 (Déjà vu; 舞代路)
- 月之迷 (Nectar)
- Music, Dance
- 피아노 (Faded In My Last Song)
- From Home
- From Home (Korean Ver.)
