NCT are currently on their NCT NATION : To The World tour.
They just performed their second concert in Osaka, Japan.
As always, NCT delivered a phenomenal show showcasing each unit’s talent and uniqueness.
There's really no other group like NCT. Every single unit is amazing. The music is SO good and versatile. U, 127, DREAM, WayV, DoJaeJung and now also the new talented addition. Together, they're so powerful!! We're truly blessed! #NCT_NATIONpic.twitter.com/Jb69hWLFQ2

But the performances are not the only thing that will make Japanese NCTzens remember that night. It also started raining heavily during the concert, so much so that Winwin prayed, and Xiaojun tried to make it stop.

Unfortunately, Mother Nature is not an NCTzen because it rained a lot. So, the rain made an appearance in many fancams.

It was a straight-up storm as thunder and lightning also struck. It even ended up flooding the venue.

The rain didn’t stop, but neither did NCT. The show must go on!

Those NCTzens in attendance had mixed feelings about the concert. Considering the flooding, some felt it should have been canceled, while others were still happy to see NCT live.
our hands and feet were in contact with water for so long they’re all pruned & wrinkly…plus a flyer in my bag that did not survive the rain lol…

International NCTzens have mixed reactions about it, though. Others were concerned it was a safety hazard for the NCT members and staff.
apparently the rain is getting heavier along with thunder and lightning, water also flooded the stage and fell from the top of the stadium onto the seats like a waterfall…. please stay safe i hope no one gets hurt 😢 #NCT_NATION_ToTheWorld pic.twitter.com/WvYHlNDyOy

Yet, some NCTzens pointed out that staff shared an insensitive post via NCT’s official Instagram Stories.

Yet, as the flood videos went viral across social media, others reacted unseriously. Many joked about the irony of the situation, considering NCT’s rain-themed songs, such as NCT U’s “Rain Day.”
Would you have stayed?
