Fans Can’t Help Their Excitement
After the initial shock wore off, fans didn’t hesitate to post their reactions on social media.
An All-Round Artist
NCT members are well-known for taking projects independently, and Jaehyun is not the exception. In 2017, he dropped his first solo song, “Try Again,” an acoustic pop ballad featuring d.ear. In 2019, Jaehyun released a cover of the track “I Like Me Better” by Lauv, which gained 71 million views on Youtube–the idol is not to shy away from solo projects.
Aside from breaking records with NCT 127, the singer more recently became the new face of the GQ X Prada Campaign and was cast as Im Hyunbin in the upcoming drama remake of Bungee Jumping of Their Own. From testing the waters in other industries to surprising fans with unique covers, it’s safe to say that Jaehyun has a lot more in store, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for the artist.
