On July 7, NCT 127 held an online fanmeeting to celebrate the group’s fifth anniversary. They announced that their upcoming album will be released in September, and gave fans some hints to figure out the title!
Member Jungwoo revealed that the title has 3 syllables. He also stated that the title is in English.
Haechan “gave everything” by sharing with fans that the last letter is “R.”
Off-screen, Taeyong guessed “Monster” and Doyoung guessed “Mister,” both of which have 3 syllables in Korean.
Doyoung gave his hint by humming a song!

Members Taeyong, Jaehyun, and Mark also gave some hints for the upcoming release.
Taeyong held up a plant and Mark stepped in to gesture to something around it.
Jaehyun then pointed to the camera, which some consider a gesture for “You” or the letter “U.”
Mark then finished it off with making a heart to the camera.
He surprised Jaejae when he didn’t end there, and followed it up by spelling out the word “LOVE” with his hand.
Fans have been making guesses about what the title could be based on actions from the fanmeeting, recent Instagram captions, and some have even pulled out a dictionary.
Though there’s no way to know for sure just yet, one popular guess is “Air,” which would match the criteria given by the members!
127’s Album name is AIR !!
– 3 letters, English, ends with R
– Jaehyun pointing at the air
– Taeyong used the plant as something who needs air
– Mark said LOVE = “LOVE is in the AIR”
