International K-pop group NCT has been making waves with their unique rotational concept since 2016. April 9 marks six years since the first NCT unit, NCT U, debuted with the double digital single “Without You” and “The 7th Sense.” From the original six members to over 20 members from China, North America, Japan, and beyond, the global group has experienced enormous growth since their debut. To celebrate six years of Neo Culture Technology, here are six of EnVi’s favorite fan-made merchandise across the eras!
