Korean music label SM Entertainment broke the news earlier today (January 31), announcing that BoA will oversee the production of the brand-new NCT sub-group’s debut single ‘Wish’, which will include both their music and performances.

In a brief statement to Korea JoongAng Daily, the agency said: “BoA is expected to lead the members’ activities and development based on her know-how, insight, sense and own identity, which she had accumulated throughout her long career as a K-pop artist.”

NCT WISH will make their official debut as the latest and final sub-group of the wider NCT boyband on February 21 at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, according to Korea JoongAng Daily. The new group features six members – Sion, Riku, Yushi, Jaehee, Ryo and Sakuya – who won their spots in the group through the reality show NCT Universe: Lastart.

NCT WISH will be based in both South Korea and Japan, through which they’ll conduct their global activates. “The band is determined to become a ‘Wish Icon’, sending strong hope and energy to all the music fans worldwide,” SM Entertainment said in a previous statement about the group.

Earlier this week on January 28, the boyband dropped a performance video for a pre-release track titled ‘NASA’. NCT WISH are seen performing the choreography on a space station, as they sing in a mixture of Korean, Japanese and English.

First introduced in 2016, NCT have one rotational sub-unit, NCT U, as well as fixed sub-groups NCT 127, NCT Dream and WayV. In February 2023, SM Entertainment shared plans to debut a final sub-group, then tentatively known as NCT Tokyo.
