NCT 127’s winning made many people surprised because they did not know and never heard any of the group’s songs.
On October 26th, NCT 127’s “Regular” beat IU’s “BBIBBI” and brought the glorious fourth trophy to the group. This trophy caused the SM boys and fans very happy because this was their first win at a major music show broadcast.
But this victory of NCT 127 did not receive positive feedback from netizens. Many people are confused because they do not know the group, others said that because IU did not promote her new song, so NCT 127 can easily beat her on music shows:
[+218, -23] Eh….?
[+217, -26] I’ve never heard of their song though
[+24, -5] SM has lost their touch, please get rid of all these kids. And please stop getting your kids onto variety shows and dramas..
[+23, -10] Who are these nugus winning #1?
[+22, -38] You worked hard NCT ㅜㅜ ♡ You’ve been great for the past 842 days, and this is just the beginning so fighting ㅜㅜ♡
[+21, -4] Not trying to hate but just curious how a song that isn’t even in the chart 100 can win #1 without bribing the PD
[+20, -13] I get that IU hasn’t promoted her song on TV but come on ㅋㅋㅋ
[+18, -6] Isn’t this the group that tweeted at every famous foreign singer asking them to recognize their group? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ugh so damn embarrassing
[+17, -3] I’ve never even seen them on the charts and not only did they beat IU, but they also won their first public broadcast #1? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ How does that happen
[+18, -8] NCT who? I’ve never heard of them and they dare beat IU? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
[+17, -18] So funny how you guys are making assumptions without knowing anything ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Music Bank draws points from
different categories and IU hasn’t promoted her song on TV so she has no points except the digital section… IU has more points than NCT in digital but NCT has more points everywhere else which is why they won. You guys all sound like old farts every time you whine about singers winning #1 when you don’t know them when they won fair and square by racking up the points.
It can be said, despite the support of many international fans, NCT is not really popular in their home country. Besides, it can’t be denied that the group’s sales revenue is showing good signs and the fandom is getting bigger. So in the future, maybe NCT will become the “main artist” of SM.
