NCT -- which stands for Neo Culture Technology -- is the overall name given to SM Entertainment's boy band project that will aims to "localize" K-pop by separate units in cities around the world that all promote under the NCT name. The project was introduced via the six-member NCT U, which released two separate singles "The 7th Sense" and "Without You" in April. The latest, NCT 127, is based in Seoul, boasts seven members and has entered multiple Billboard charts with their EP, NCT #127: The 1st Mini Album.
