NCT 127 has been invited onto Weekly Idol for the first time and they’re ready to make you laugh and giggle!
As their very first variety show appearance, the group was ready to show off their many personal talents from dance skills to passionate eye stares. They participated in the popular “random play dance” segment with songs from their SMTOWN sunbaes TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, SHINee, EXO and Red Velvet. They also showed off some classic aegyo, though it was impossible not to chuckle at Jaehyun and Yuta‘s efforts. Afterwards, Taeil nailed it with a controlled high note when singing his own song, “Because of You,” while Taeyong and Winwin demonstrate their contrasting, yet both fluid dance moves with traditional Chinese music. Fellow members Mark and Haechun were unable to attend the filming due to conflicting schedules.
Host MC Kim Heechul can be seen proud and nervous for his fellow SM family as they join the show. He took his job very serious as he tried to help them through the inevitably awkward moments that all rookie groups experience on their first variety show appearance. In addition to Heechul, NCT 127 also mentions some of their admired SM sunbaes, including TVXQ and EXO.
In the first video below, we included a short clip of some adorable NCT 127 moments from the show, but check out the second video for the full NCT 127 episode of Weekly Idol. Both videos are subbed in English.
