Morning Show Host Says K-Pop Member’s ‘English is Phenomenal’: ‘Well yeah, I’m from Chicago’
NCT 127, part of the K-pop band NCT based in Seoul, recently appeared in a morning show in North America where the host repeatedly compared them to BTS and commented on a member’s English.
During the live broadcast of their guest appearance on “KTLA 5 Morning Show,” the host continued to mention BTS multiple times and asked NCT 127 if they could be the next big thing after the Bangtan Boys.
there was no reason to say that, BTS is BTS and NCT is NCT, NCT have their own image just praise them without bringing the “next BTS” line into the mixpic.twitter.com/4pQli9P3vB
“When you see what has happened to BTS who was also here, what do you think of that?” the host asked the group.
Mark, whose full name is Mark Lee, clarified that BTS has their own thing and NCT 127 has their own. “What they did, we have a lot of respect for but we’re very excited for what we have to bring to the world,” he said.
Mark Lee ending possible fanwars w/ a very remarkable answer here’s the thing: bts will always be the only bts and nct will always be the only nct and the same goes to other grps. all grps offer diff styles and concepts and carry themselves their own wayspic.twitter.com/xsmSlxZpdx
Being compared to BTS is not the only cringe-worthy moment that happened to NCT 127 during their guesting on the show. The host even went on to compliment Johnny’s English, saying, “By the way, your English is phenomenal!”
host: by the way your english is phenomenal! johnny: well yeah im from chicago
They ain’t the “next bts” they don’t want to be the “next bts”. They are there own groups, with their own agendas, spreading their own message and their own music. The fact that they and bts sing in the same language and are from the same country is really the only similarity
2 diff groups. Both have their own goals & ambitions, so please comparing ’em. NCT will be THE NCT of their own. And BTS, they’re not the next ‘Beatles’ of back then, they’re the BTS of now. Both amazing groups; Respect ’em for who they are, not who you think they’ll be. pic.twitter.com/aXipoFCNdV
