NCT127 is successfully doing their U.S. debut promotion. They reportedly appeared in famous local programs and proved their ability.
NCT127 recently participated in the recording of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ which was held at 6:00 p.m. (local time) in LA on the 8th. On this day, the English version of their new song “Regular” was performed for the first time.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” is a late-night talk show that started in 2003. The show, hosted by famous comedian Jimmy Kimmel, is seen as one of the most famous programs of the American broadcasting company ‘ABC’.
NCT127 is currently gathering attention for their unique performances on the show. The members appeared in fancy suits and dominated the stage with their knife-like choreography for “Regular,” a song of Latin trap genre.
Despite being a little-known boy group in the United States, this time NCT127 are making people remember their names. They proved their popularity as fans could sing along “Cherry Bomb” or “Firetruck” perfectly.
Their popularity is unexpected to even local officials. David, 33, who works in a nearby studio, said, “The new boy bands are very popular. I was surprised by the sound of the roar that came out.”
Since the beginning of their U.S. promotion, the reactions have been very different. NCT127 performed in the concert held on the 6th in celebration of the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse and were the only artists to receive a standing ovation.
They were also the first Korean singers to be selected as Apple Music’s “Up Next,” a corner that announces global stars that are expected to be famous around the world.
“It seems like being able to work in the U.S. itself is a great thing,” said leader Taeyong during an interview with Dispatch, “It’s all thanks to fans. We will work hard to deliver the best performances.”
In addition, NCT127 was officially invited to the American Music Awards (‘AMAs)’ red carpet event, which will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on the 9th.
They are also receiving a steady stream of love calls and are planning to appear on major entertainment programs such as Fox11’s “Good Day LA”, NBC’s “Access Hollywood”, and the biggest entertainment channel, “E! News.”
