(Updated May 2020)
IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs – have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites. So unfortunately, I cannot watch most of these videos or verify the links anymore. This also means I cannot add as many videos as before because they simply are not available in my region. I’m sorry if you click on something and it’s no longer there, but there’s not really any way for me to check! – Katherine
Approximate Promotion Period: October 2018 (Regular) and November 2018 (Simon Says)
NOTE: NCT 127 went to the United States in October and November 2018 for various events that overlapped with “Regular” promotions. If you want to see a list of those videos, click here.

10 episodes (October -December 2018)
The members write “TMI” stories anonymously, and then the group has to guess who wrote what. Once the member’s identity is revealed, he explains the story behind it.

(They’re all 5-10 minute clips)
A K-pop centered variety show with former Weekly Idol hosts Jung Hyungdon and Defconn. It generally features standard dance and mission corners, tailoring the games to the group or a specific member. Clips (especially subbed ones) are hard to find because the show is pretty vigilant about their copyright. It’s best to go directly to the source on V-Live (click on the links above).
A popular variety show that shines the spotlight on one or more idol groups every episode. There are well-known corners that often involve dance challenges or aegyo, but the guests always play games or complete missions to earn prizes.
Weekly Idol fansubbed episodes are blocked in Korea, so I can only link whatever clips I can find on YouTube at this point. This is a clip of NCT 127 doing the “Rollercoaster Dance” (dancing to a song at different speeds). It doesn’t have subtitles, but I think it’s okay without them!
Videos for “Simon Says” Promotions
NOTE: There aren’t many videos because it was a repackage (which is usually less promotion anyway) and because it was also the end of November/early December, which is usually a busy time when idols focus more on performances and less on variety.
“SIMON SAYS” MV REACTION
채널 NCT DAILY
They don’t actually say anything while they’re watching the MV the first time (LOL), but they go through it again and provide commentary afterwards.
NCT 127 make emojis for NCTzens, try to dance to silly versions of “Simon Says” without laughing, and compete to see who knows the members best.
You can watch the broadcast on V-Live here.
The embedded clip is of NCT 127’s medley dance on the show.
