NCT 엔시티 is a Kpop boy group produced by S.M. Entertainment. Their name stands for the Hallyu localization project Neo Culture Technology, a term coined by S.M. Entertainment founder Lee Sooman to describe the group's concept of having an unlimited number of members divided into multiple sub-units based in various cities worldwide.
The group's six-member unit NCT U made their debut in April 2016 with the singles "The 7th Sense" and "Without You." NCT 127, a seven-member unit based in Seoul, debuted in July 2016 with "Fire Truck." The third unit, NCT Dream, made their debut in August 2016 with "Chewing Gum." Subsequent units are expected to debut in Japan, Beijing and Shanghai.
Most of the members of NCT were formerly part of SM Rookies, a pre-debut group of S.M. Entertainment trainees.
In January 2016, S.M. Entertainment founder Lee Sooman gave a presentation at the SM Coex Artium titled "SMTOWN: New Culture Technology 2016," speaking about the agency's plans for a new boy group in line with their "culture contents" strategy that would be debuting different teams based in different countries around the world.
On April 4, 2016, S.M. Entertainment announced NCT's first unit, NCT U, consisting of six members: Taeil, Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, and Mark. Their first single "The 7th Sense" was released on April 9, and their second single "Without You" was released on April 10 in two versions (a Korean version sung by Taeil, Doyoung, and Jaehyun, and a Chinese version with the addition of SM Rookies' Kun).
On April 9, 2016, NCT U made their first broadcast appearance with "NCT On Air" on Naver's V app, hosted by Super Junior's Heechul. The same day, they had their first live performance in China at the 16th Music Feng Yun Bang Awards, along with two other Chinese members, Kun and WinWin. The group made their music show debut in Korea on KBS's "Music Bank" on April 15, and have subsequently appeared in three seasons of their reality series "NCT Life," featuring other SM Rookies.
On July 1, S.M. Entertainment announced NCT's second unit, NCT 127. NCT 127 is based in Seoul, with the number 127 representing the longitude coordinates of Seoul. The unit consists of seven members: Taeil, Taeyong, Yuta, Jaehyun, WinWin, Mark, and Haechan (formerly known as Donghyuck). They made their stage debut on July 7, 2016 on "M! Countdown," performing "Fire Truck" and "Once Again" from their album. Their debut EP NCT #127 was released digitally on July 10 and physically on July 11. The 3rd season of "NCT Life," in the city of Paju, which features NCT 127, premiered on July 16, 2016. On July 29, the unit released the single "Taste the Feeling" for the project SM Station in collaboration with Coca-Cola.
On August 18, S.M. Entertainment announced that NCT's third unit would be called NCT Dream. The unit consists of seven members: Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung. Their first single "Chewing Gum" was released on August 24 and their debut stage took place at "M! Countdown" on August 25.
On December 6, five members of NCT 127 (Yuta, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Mark, and Winwin) released a special dance music video, "Good Thing," in collaboration with W Korea. The single was eventually released on NCT 127's second mini-album, Limitless. On December 20, the music video for "Switch" was released. The single was previously released as a bonus track on NCT 127's mini-album NCT#127, and features SR15B.

On December 27, 2016, NCT 127 announced that they would be making a comeback with the addition of two members, Johnny and Doyoung. On January 5, 2017, the music video for "Limitless" was released and the unit had their comeback stage on "M Countdown." Their second mini-album, Limitless, was released digitally on January 6, 2017, and physically on January 9, 2017.
On February 1, 2017, NCT Dream announced that they would be releasing their first single album, The First, on February 9. SM Entertainment announced that Jaemin wouldn't be participating in the comeback due to his health problems. The unit had their comeback stage on "M Countdown," performing the lead track "My First and Last" and the B-side track "Dunk Shot." On February 14, NCT Dream won 1st place on the 100th episode of SBS MTV's "The Show." This marks the first ever music show win for a NCT unit.
