Following the success of Sticker, NCT 127 announced a repackage album. Set to be released on October 25, the album is titled Favorite and contains 14 songs. In addition to the 11 songs from Sticker, the repackage will include three new titles: “Favorite,” “Love On The Floor,” and “Pilot.” Although no further details about Favorite have been revealed, the album is currently available for pre-order and it has already surpassed 800,000 orders on Ktown4u alone.
Furthermore, NCT 127 revealed a teaser schedule that opened up with the unveiling of a mood sampler (Classic version). In the 30-second video, the members of the group flash some iconic looks. Decked up in sleek suits, Taeil, Johnny, Yuta, Taeyong, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Jungwoo, Mark and Haechan, have set expectations high for Favorite.
The first sneak-peek at “Favorite” has been received positively by NCT’s fandom. The internet was thrown into a tailspin with fans quickly taking to Twitter to welcome the Favorite Era. The excitement has been palpable online, where fans keep gushing about NCT 127’s return and making guesses about the concept of the title track. Naturally, there have been some humorous takes and beautiful artwork too.
