EDITORS’ NOTES

On their full-length debut, NCT 127 show just how versatile they can be. Organized conceptually by two halves—the dream world and reality—Regular-Irregular boasts forays into Latin trap (the thunderous title cut) and English (a special version of the very same) that further bolster the group’s reputation as one of the boldest outfits in pop. Much of their strength is collective: Whether they're delivering velvety slow jams (“Knock On”), sturdy hip-hop (“My Van”), or “Interlude: Regular to Irregular,” the album’s gauzy palate-cleanser, they step up for each other—and their fans. “This team has my back,” Johnny told Apple Music in the Up Next short film, Strongest Member Together. “I really can’t live without this team.”

About NCT 127

Created by S.M. Entertainment, K-pop group NCT ("Neo Culture Technology") boasts an unlimited number of members that populate multiple "sub-units" based in various international locales like Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, and Bangkok. The original group was composed of members of SM Rookies. The first spinoff, NCT U, was announced in April 2016. They released a pair of singles before a second incarnation, NCT 127, was formed in July. Later that year, NCT Dream debuted with "Chewing Gum" in both Korean and Mandarin versions. In 2018, the group unveiled the NCT 2018 project, releasing NCT 2018 EMPATHY. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
