NCT (Neo Culture Technology) is a boy band created by SM Entertainment in 2016. The group is composed of 21 members but this constantly changes since the idea is to have an unlimited number of members. NCT consists of Taeil, Kun, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Taeyong, Ten, Mark, Yuta, Winwin, Haechan, Renjun, Jeno, Jaemin, Chenie, Jisung, Johnny, Jungwoo, Lucas, Xiaojun, Hendery and Yangyang. They are divided into four sub-groups: NCT U, NCT 127, NCT Dream and WayV.
Similarly to their other groups SM Entertainment have released many pieces of NCT merchandise often as a part of a bigger collection that was prepared for a concert, tour or fan meeting. They are available from the official SM Global Shop.
On May 7, 2018 at the Korea University Hwajung Gymnasium in Seoul the group met with their official fan club. The event was organized by Dream Maker Entertainment. At the venue the fans had a chance to purchase 14 different items.
