Some things never change, like Winwin’s smile!

NCT‘s Winwin is now one of the music industry’s hottest stars, and he just only just turned 24 internationally. While we celebrate his success and birthday, let’s look back on his growth, from his younger days up to now.

1. Toddler

He was just a baby, but even then, he was a natural at posing!

2. Kid

It’s clear that he has always been photogenic since the beginning!

3. Adolescent

Of course, when we get to that age between childhood and young adult, we may be a little awkward. Still, when in doubt, just throw up the “V!”


4. Teen

Like most of us, Winwin also managed to have fun at school and would take selfies!

5. Pre-debut

He was always musically inclined!

He majored in traditional Chinese dance in school for six years and even got first place for dance in high school! Afterward, he attended Beijing Dance Academy.

6. Trainee

He first entered SM Entertainment in 2013 when he was just in elementary school and since took classes for trainees on and off. He was introduced as a SMRookie on January 5, 2016. He shared a dorm with NCT’s China line at this time.

7. University student

While he did go back to China to attend university, in the summer of 2015, he hung out with other Chinese trainees from SM Entertainment at Lotte World.
