SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: NCT 127 is back with their album '2 Baddies' in the midst of their world tour and fans are excited. However, SM's inability to be fair to all of the members is once again brought into the spotlight as this time it is Taeil fans who are angry. For the past few years, we have seen NCT 127 members like Johnny and Yuta being sidelined. Well, for '2 Baddies' music video, main vocalist Taeil only got 7 seconds of screen time.

When K-pop fans talk about the main vocalists in the industry, Taeil is always one of the idols who is mentioned. Fans also love to see him belt out his high notes as seen in the 'Kick It' music video which so happened to be the highlight. And with Taeil being one of the main vocalists in the 23-member group NCT as well, his talent is never questioned even by haters. And so, another clip where the cameraman moves away from Taeil when he is singing his high note in '2 Baddies' has fans furious.

In the behind-the-scenes clip which he himself shared, we clearly see Taeil filming the part where he sings his high note which had fans asking why it was cut. Apart from his 7-second screen time, fans also pointed out how SM does not let him release his own music. NCTzens (NCT's fans) brought back the time a friend shared on social media of Taeil making his own music and asking SM to allow him to release it. Well, fans are upset on behalf of the main vocalist and have created an uproar on Twitter.


'I'm so sorry Taeil'

One NCTzen commented, "I bet he was expecting this in the mv im so sorry taeil :(." Another was frustrated, "To be honest, I don't want to see him hold back his emotions anymore...Do you think that someone who is so determined to sing their lungs out deserves something like this? Careless. I'm here Taeil. I don't know if you're ok, but I don't want this to happen again." One NCTzen observed, "His screentime is lesser than maximum video duration can be posted on ig story, u stupid SM." With the cameraman moving away from him while he is singing his high note, another fan said, "Taeil is an angel because i would absolutely be ruining everyone’s day after shit like this."

One fan wrote, "Every year taeil talks about how much he likes their new song and looks forward to the mv. he spends the same amount of time on set as everyone else, and every year his effort and hard work are not properly shown." Another NCTzen posted, "MV 2 Baddies (질주) time 244 seconds (4.04 mins) Taeil’s time total 7 seconds This is from No.1 entertainment? #TaeilDeservesBetter." One fan tweeted, "Taeil worked as hard as everyone being there to shoot the mv only for his shots not being included in the music video.. it’s unfair especially since taeil is the main vocalist :/."
