On August 2, industry representatives reported that SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Kai and Baekhyun, and NCT’s Taeyong and Mark along with Lucas and Ten, who are also part of WayV, will be debuting as a new boy group sometime within 2019.
According to the reports, this group is not a unit project but an actual group with potential to continue making comebacks following their debut. The members’ main groups will still be prioritized, however, so this new group will not affect their original groups.
In response to the reports, SM Entertainment commented, “An official announcement will be made on August 8.”

So this will be an actual group with actual comebacks ... Not a unit ... Huh. Idk how to feel about it, I like all the guys on their own or in their respective groups but I'm not sure how this would work out then.
