“WayV! 大家好. 我们是 威神V.”
When NCT debuted in 2016, one of SM Entertainment’s goals was make them into a truly global group and promote in several different countries. They started working towards this in 2019 with WayV, the official Chinese unit of NCT (and the first non-Korean one) with members who are from Chinese speaking countries and/or have Chinese ethnic origins. Though WayV was initially focused on the Chinese music market, they’ve slowly started to expand their global influence – they promoted their recent releases in South Korea, and they also have English versions of a couple of their songs.

Unlike my other profiles, I don’t have individual pages for NCT/WayV members because several of them are in multiple units and it could get confusing. So, I made a WayV member profile with basic information, and then I have pages that cover all NCT/WayV members who have done a certain individual activity (acting, music, variety, etc.)

NOTE: Most images used on this page are official WayV images for teasers, products, or merchandise; those images belong to SM Entertainment and Label V. Some other pictures are also cover images for certain pages I made; they will have their source credit on those specific pages.
This profile is a collaborative effort with my friend Jess, who is a big WayV fan and knows more about them than I do. She gave me most of the key information about WayV and chose the videos that she considered to be key/iconic/helpful to those entering the fandom (which I organized and embedded). Jess also runs a K-pop and K-Drama blog, which you can check out here.
