SM Entertainment Partners With MGM Television To Launch American Competition Show For New NCT Sub-Unit

SM Entertainment is partnering with MGM Television to launch a U.S.-based sub-unit of NCT!

On May 6, American media outlets The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline reported that SM Entertainment and MGM Worldwide Television Group had partnered to create a K-pop audition program in the United States. The program’s goal is to launch a K-pop group that will focus its promotions in the United States.

The new group will be a sub-unit of SM Entertainment’s group NCT, which operates under the concept of having no fixed limit for members and having fluid membership between sub-units. The group currently has 23 members and sub-units such as NCT 127, NCT U, NCT DREAM, and WayV.

The new sub-unit will be called NCT-Hollywood and the audition program will recruit American males aged 13-25. The contestants will compete in dancing, singing, and styling in a “bootcamp training” concept that will take place in Seoul at the SM campus, and it is reported that the current NCT members will participate as judges and mentors.
