SM Entertainment has revealed a schedule for THE NCT SHOW in THE NCT UNIVERSE through the official NCT social media accounts, and while fans are eagerly awaiting more great content from NCT, some NCTzens are disappointed in the news.
Episode 1 of THE NCT SHOW in THE NCT UNIVERSE, which looks set to be like a variety show starring NCT members, is due to be released on February 10-13, and it will include segments such as NCT NEWS, the iconic segment A Cup of Coffee, MUSIC SPACE, and Golden Bell. The members that will be participating in this episode are Taeyong, Johnny, Jaehyun, Jungwoo, Mark, Jeno, Jisung, Xiaojun, Hendery, and Sungchan.

nct and their youtube contents will always be toptier. they will ALWAYS deliver something new for the fans to watch and enjoy. in my opinion, they are the best content creator among kpop artists.

The segments included in episode 1 so far look very promising, especially considering that, with so many members, having an NCT variety show where all the members can guest star is a great idea.
variety shows cant invite nct? that’s okay, nct can create their own shows and use their own members as guest 🤩🤩

The inclusion of A Cup Of Coffee Part 3 is particularly exciting, however, as the first two installments provided some of the most enduringly entertaining moments in NCT history.
Yet, Ten‘s absence from the cast for A Cup Of Coffee Part 3 is disappointing to fans, as he was one of the comedic highlights of the segment in the previous two installments.
a cup of coffee isn’t a cup of coffee without a TEN😭😭

And while fans are happy to have Jeno as an NCT NEWS host…

…many also feel like it’s unfair that NCT DREAM has been working on THE NCT SHOW instead of their own content ahead of their comeback this year.
so the pre-comeback content we are going to get for nct dream comeback is the nct universe content?

can they at least let bring back the nct dream mini game it's been years since the last one 😭

I think we should work even harder to promote them since the company forgot the comeback is next month 😶

In any case, this is only the schedule for episode 1, and there is likely to be a lot more content with other members in future episodes of THE NCT SHOW, so hopefully most of fans’ concerns will be addressed. For now, episode 1 has plenty to look forward to, including a special stage for “Child” by Mark Lee, which he mentioned on Bubble on February 8.

We can’t wait to see what NCT has in store! All the members have been working hard, and NCT’s content has yet to disappoint!
