Yes. Because Baekhyun is enlisting in 2020, so I suppose to usher in the group for the beginning. Not sure about that, SM has only come out and said they know that people have been mad/etc. but they hope that the fans will like the project.

wow so exo-ls were right and SM really is using their senior artists to give a boost to NCT but it seems like they also want to promote SM ent in the US and create company stans. If it were just for the NCT American unit I think NCT 127's promotions would've been enough. I wonder who will be included in the NCT America Unit

Yes since NCT hasn't been giving them the success in terms of SM's groups thus far. Dunno why they put 3 members who are going to enlist soon in the group, but on a fanbase front seems like SM thinks that some of them will go to NCT but judging by the fans reactions lmao.

SM does a great job building from the ground up their artists and for 2-3 years a good foundation to get a sizable solid fanbase. But after that not so much, and NCT is 4 years in their debut so SM really wants them to succeed after EXO. No offense but SM thinks dropping an act here like in Korea is going to work but you've to put in the time and that's why its difficult (SNSD- Interscope wanted them to put in 10 months for America but they balked). I rather they push a soloist, since I feel like the market is oversaturated rn.

yeah they would definitely have to put in more time to have them be successful in the US more than 10 months and they would probably have to be stationed there but SM is not ready to accept that as a reality. a soloist could be interesting too. not a lot of male artists really dance right now, so they could fill that niche. i still think SM saw BTS' success and wanted to make as much money as Bighit does in the US even if Capitol Records approached them first. maybe Capitol records were also inspired by BTS

I'm gonna laugh if Taemin, Kai and Baekhyun are the most popular members in the US only for SM to switch them out with a group no one cares about

This will 99% flop in the US. I thought Capital was smarter than this.
