NCT Variety Show Appearances

(Update in Progress – May 2020)

This is a list of various variety shows and broadcasts that NCT has appeared on as a group. I did not include everything they’ve ever appeared on – mostly videos that I’ve seen, that I find entertaining, and/or that I think are helpful to get to know the group.

These videos are the variety shows or broadcasts that include all current members of NCT (like when they were promoting their album) or videos with various members from different units.  They do NOT include variety shows done by a specific unit – each unit has its own designated page.  To see those, click on one of the following:

*None of these videos are mine; they belong to their respective networks or channels.  The subs are also not mine and are either done by the network itself or a fan.


Since NCT’s debut, they’ve had their own variety show that features various members traveling to various parts of South Korea and Asia.  There have been eight seasons, each with a different theme:

Season 1 – NCT Life in Bangkok
Season 2 – NCT Life in Seoul
Season 3 – NCT Life in Paju
Season 4 – NCT Life K-Food Challenge
Season 5 – NCT Life Entertainment Retreat
Season 6 – NCT Life in Chiang Mai
Season 7 – NCT Life in Osaka
Season 8 – NCT Hot&Young Seoul Trip

NCT’s YouTube Channels

In 2018, NCT uploaded several YouTube channels that cover a wide variety of content. And the best part is that many of the videos have subtitles, including English. That being said, there are so many videos. It’s very hard to organize them all, so in this profile I’ve kind of cherry picked the ones that I consider most relevant to getting to know the group. If you want to delve even deeper, go and check these channels out!

The main channel is 채널 NCT DAILY. It has a whole slew of videos for the NCT units (mainly NCT 127 and Dream) as well as for individual members and members in pairs and small groups. They are CONSTANTLY updating, so it’s a really great resource for all things NCT.

The other channels are 채널 NCT DANCE, which features dance practices (from 2018 on) and dance videos by some of the members, and 채널 NCT MUSIC, which mostly features various members doing song covers.


NCT is one of the K-pop groups who are very active on V-Live.  They’re constantly doing broadcasts and uploading content for their fans.  There are too many to individually link here, but it’s a great source for getting to know them or just keeping up to date.

NOTE: These videos are from 2018, when NCT had the large NCT 2018 project.
