    The Past and The Present of NCT

    Although i wasn't supporting them since their debut, watching videos and serching more of them, in the past, when they were performing they look kind of shy (example, jungwoo) but obviously so talented, and in the present they shows a different way to be and that is making me feel so excited for them, i see a lot of potential in each of the 23 members, and i can identified with them in some aspects because their jokes and their think sometimes it fits so good with me, i love them.
