NCT, a K-pop group unlike any other, follows the concept of unlimited members divided into various sub-units based in different cities worldwide. Currently, NCT consists of 21 members in a total of four sub-units namely NCT U, NCT 127, NCT Dream and WayV.

NCT first debuted with their unit NCT U in 2016 with the singles 'The 7th Sense' and 'Without You'. NCT U was followed by NCT 127 with an eponymous EP and, later, NCT Dream with the single 'Chewing Gum'. NCT introduced WayV, their first overseas sub-unit based in China in 2019 with the EP 'The Vision' followed by 'Take Off' and 'Take Over the Moon' and finally, a full-length studio album titled 'Awaken the World'.
