NCT Individual Activities: Variety Shows

(Updated January 2021)

This page covers the variety shows that NCT members have appeared on individually, either as a guest for an episode or as a full time cast member – as well as segments they have done for either NCT or WayV’s YouTube channel. None of the videos were uploaded or subbed by me! The uploaders and/or subber are credited at the end of the post.

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


Page 1: Taeil, Johnny, and Taeyong (see below)
Page 2: Yuta, Doyoung, Ten, and YangYang
Page 3: Jaehyun, WinWin, Lucas, Mark, and Jeno
Page 4: Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung

(I tried to put them in age order, but I put YangYang with Ten because they have a show together.)


King of Masked Singer
(미스터리 음악쇼 복면가왕)
Episodes 229-230
A singing competition show similar to The Voice (in that you don’t initially know who’s performing). Contestants perform head to head in three elimination rounds, but their identities are hidden by elaborate masks and costumes. Thus, the panelists may only judge the winner based on his or her voice.

I weirdly cannot find any clips of Taeil’s performances on (Korean) YouTube, so instead I embedded a behind the scenes video of him preparing on NCT’s channel.


Johnny’s Communication Center
Johnny has his own variety show on NCT’s YouTube channel. It’s kind of a vlog style show where he does various things with different members of NCT. There are a lot of episodes, so I just embedded the playlist here.

Everybody Cha Cha Cha
SBS Plus
Appeared on a soccer variety show competing to be the goalkeeper (episode preview is unsubbed).

The guest in this episode is Suhyun from Akdong Musician.

Lipstick Prince
(립스틱 프린스)
Season 2
A variety show where male idols and actors learn to do makeup and test their skills on female celebrity guests. Other cast members were Tony An (H.O.T), Heechul (Super Junior), P.O. (Block B), N (VIXX), Eunkwang (BTOB), Shownu (Monsta X) and Rowoon (SF9). 


Game Dolympic
Seasons 1 and 2
An eSports competition for idols who like to game, featuring games like Overwatch, League of Legends, and PUBG as well as arcade games

NOTES: All of the episodes seem to be available on YouTube, but only a couple from Season 2 have English subs.

Food Diary
A show produced by SM C&C featuring celebrities from SM Entertainment and its various companies/affiliates.  The cast became farmers and grew all the ingredients necessary to cook one dish, in order to show the entire process of preparing a meal.

I couldn’t find a full episode (and the clips on YouTube are unsubbed), but some fans subbed versions of the first couple of episodes featuring just Taeyong’s cuts.
