5. Recording Diaries

Following the release of Resonance, multiple videos were released on the NCT Daily YouTube channel―highlighting the recording process for some of the songs on the album including, “Work It,” “90’s Love,” “Lightbulb,” “Make A Wish (Birthday Song),” and more! The videos introduce some of the hidden elements that may have been missed, and pieces that were changed in the final production. The dynamics of the members were also put on display, as each unit showed their support for each other by giving feedback and encouragement throughout each video. 

Many moments in these videos went viral on Twitter, including Doyoung in the “From Home” recording with “Now I Know.” With almost 2.2 million views, the clip has reached many different communities outside of NCity. 

4. KBS Song Festival 

KBS Song Festival is an annual music show that airs at the end of every year. The biggest K-pop groups of the year come together to perform their hit songs and also collaborate on special stages. All of NCT were invited and did nothing but impress!

The members of NCT participated in two different collaboration projects for the festival. Mark and Taeyong performed a new song, “Dragon” for a “Special Stage Rap Performance” with Monsta X’s I.M and Joohoney, and Stray Kids’ Bang Chan and Changbin. Shotaro showed off his amazing talents in a cover of GOT7’s “Hard Carry” with Astro’s Moonbin, The Boyz’s Juyeon, and Stray Kids’ Hyunjin in the special “9800 Stage.” NCT 127 also performed their hit song, “Kick It” and NCT 2020 performed “Resonance.” 

NCTzens were excited to see the special NCT U stage, in which Sungchan and Taeyong performed a new song called “Class.” The lyrics talk about everything NCT has to offer, and highlight the amazing abilities of each unit in NCT. At the end of the stage, the members get together to perform “Misfit,” showing off their amazing chemistry and pride for NCT.

3. Welcome to SUN&MOON 

Haechan and Taeil’s segment on the NCT Daily channel, Welcome to SUN&MOON, was entertaining and lighthearted content for all NCTzens to enjoy. The 10 episode series featured the many different group dynamics within NCT 2020, including the 99 Line, The Foreign Swaggerz, The WinWin fanclub, and the Maknae Line. With all of the episodes being filmed during the production of the first teaser of NCT 2020, NCT 2020 YearParty, many of the members had met for the first time just hours before. Fans were delighted to see the interactions between the new and old dynamics of the NCT 2020 members.

2. Pick Your Live Mates 

One of the many amazing things about the units of NCT coming together for these full album projects is the amazing interactions between the members! In the “Pick Your Live Mates’, each member was given a random group to do a livestream on V-LIVE. A range of unexpected combinations were chosen, and many moments occurred that NCTzens will treasure forever. Check out the livestreams on their V-LIVE Channel here!

1. NCT World 2.0

NCT World 2.0 was a piece of NCT 2020 content that many NCTzen thoroughly enjoyed. The 8 episode series was televised by Mnet every Thursday. With the crucial damage to their time and space travel machine, the members of NCT must travel through different time periods in order to return back to their original universe in time for the start of their comeback. Some of the most prominent challenges included catching 28 octopuses in the Boat challenge, and forming the word “NCT” on a Sky Bridge that is 541 meters off the ground.
