The artist in question has since removed the group’s name from his official Weibo account.

This announcement was met with a mix of emotions. Fans were upset to see him go while other netizens expressed their support. Considering Lucas’ hiatus was caused by a gaslighting-related dating scandal, his association with NCT became controversial.
