NCT’s Johnny Met An Unexpected K-Pop Legend His First Time At SM Entertainment

It was like fate.

NCT‘s Johnny was the third member of his group to appear on the 영국남자 Korean Englishman YouTube channel following the appearance of Mark and Jaehyun in 2019. The show’s hosts, Josh Carrott and Ollie Kendal were excited to have him since he couldn’t join them last time.

The trio had great chemistry right off the bat and seemed like old friends. Josh and Ollie even got an exclusive scoop on the original R-Rated title of NCT 127‘s song “2 Baddies,” which scandalized the entire room!

Johnny also had the chance to talk about his journey to becoming a K-Pop star and revealed that he decided to commit to becoming an idol at a young age.

He also spoke about a surprising encounter on his first visit to SM Entertainment. They had asked him to come to the company on a Sunday, and after knocking on the door, Johnny heard someone calling him.

To his surprise, it was none other than Amber, a member of the legendary K-Pop girl group f(x)!

Incredibly, Johnny’s first steps into SM Entertainment’s headquarters were welcomed by an artist who would later become his sunbae (the word Korean celebrities use for their industry seniors.)

Perhaps meeting Amber was a sign that Johnny’s success as a K-Pop idol was inevitable. Watch the full video below! Johnny talks about meeting Amber at the 6:17 mark.
