Eighteen-member NCT is preparing to roll out the first album of its subunit consisting of members Doyoung, Jaehyun and Jungwoo, according to a local Korean media report on Thursday.
The subunit is set to debut in the first half of this year, it added.
Label SM Entertainment confirmed the news following the report.
The three members performed their song, “Can’t We Go Back,” for the first time at NCT127’s standalone concert held in Seoul in October last year, raising expectations for their activities as a trio. They also covered a series of Christmas carols, including It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, together last year.
Separately, NCT127, a nine-member subunit of NCT, recently wrapped up promoting Ay-Yo, a repackaging of the group's fourth studio album, Two Baddies. The two albums sold over 3.2 million copies combined as of last month. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
