How Old Are All the NCT Members?

SM Entertainment boy brand NCT is fairly huge by the standards of K-pop, consisting of 26 active members and five main sub-units: rotational unit NCT U, Seoul-based NCT 127, originally youth-centric NCT Dream, China-based WayV, and Japan-based NCT Wish. There are even more sub-units where that came from, with NCT DoJaeJung (Doyoung, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo), WayV-Kun&Xiaojun, and WayV-Ten&Yangyang. That is a lot of information for a new fan to absorb, especially since many NCT members belong to more than one unit. (In fact, members Taeyong, Ten, and Mark are also SuperM members at SM.) SM Entertainment originally announced the NCT boy brand on January 27, 2016, with NCT U then debuting on April 9, 2016 with “일곱 번째 감각 (The 7th Sense),” and so much has been accomplished since then, with tens of millions of albums sold. To explain exactly how old all 26 of the NCT members are now, here is the current age and birthday for every member across all units, ordered from oldest to youngest: Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Kun, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, Winwin, Jungwoo, Mark, Xiaojun, Hendery, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Yangyang, Chenle, Jisung, Sion, Riku, Yushi, Jaehee, Ryo, and Sakuya. We will also break down how old all of the members were at the time each individual NCT member debuted.

Meanwhile, former members Shotaro and Sungchan officially departed NCT on May 24, 2023 in order to redebut as part of RIIZE, and we maintain the ages of all RIIZE members separately.

Above, we have described all of the permanent units to which NCT members belong, only excluding NCT U because its lineup rotates according to comeback concept. That being said, the original NCT U lineup consisted of Taeil, Taeyong, Doyoung, Ten, Jaehyun, and Mark, and they were the following ages when they debuted in April 2016: Taeil was 21, Taeyong was 20, Doyoung was 20, Ten was 20, Jaehyun was 19, and Mark was 16.

Next, NCT 127 debuted on July 7, 2016, initially as seven members: Taeil, Taeyong, Yuta, Jaehyun, Winwin, Mark, and Haechan. At that time, of the newly debuting members, Yuta was 20, Winwin was 18, and Haechan was 16. Johnny and Doyoung officially joined NCT 127 in January 2017, at which time Johnny debuted at age 21. Jungwoo officially joined NCT 127 for October 2018. However, Jungwoo had debuted in NCT as a whole earlier in 2018; SM officially dates his debut as being in February 2018, just before turning 20, but Jungwoo was actually 20 when his first album, NCT 2018 EMPATHY, was released in March 2018 and he began performing that music. Taeyong is the leader of NCT 127 and generally considered to be the leader of NCT as a whole.

NCT Dream debuted on August 24-25, 2016, consisting of seven members: Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung. Of the newly debuting members, Renjun was 16, Jeno was 16, Jaemin was newly 16, Chenle was 14, and Jisung was 14. NCT Dream was intended to have a rotational system emphasizing youth where members graduated at age 20, and Mark did temporarily graduate from the group. However, SM Entertainment subsequently reversed course and made NCT Dream into a fixed seven-member group, with Mark returning. Mark is the leader of NCT Dream.

Then WayV debuted on January 17, 2019, initially consisting of seven members: Kun, Ten, Winwin, Lucas, Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang. Kun and Lucas had debuted earlier in NCT as a whole, for NCT 2018 EMPATHY, with Kun being 22 and Lucas being 19. Of the remaining newly debuting members, Xiaojun was 19, Hendery was 19, and Yangyang was 18. Kun is the leader of WayV.

Finally, NCT Wish will debut on February 21, 2024, consisting of six members: Sion, Riku, Yushi, Jaehee, Ryo, and Sakuya, and they will be the following ages at that time: Sion will be 21, Riku will be 20, Yushi will be 19, Jaehee will be 18, Ryo will be 16, and Sakuya will be 16. Sion is the leader of NCT Wish.

To summarize the debut age of all of the NCT members as described above, here is the age at which each NCT member originally debuted, in the order that each member debuted: (1) Taeil was 21, (2) Taeyong was 20, (3) Doyoung was 20, (4) Ten was 20, (5) Jaehyun was 19, (6) Mark was 16, (7) Yuta was 20, (8) Winwin was 18, (9) Haechan was 16, (10) Renjun was 16, (11) Jeno was 16, (12) Jaemin was newly 16, (13) Chenle was 14, (14) Jisung was 14, (15) Johnny was 21, (16) Jungwoo was 20, (17) Kun was 22, (18) Xiaojun was 19, (19) Hendery was 19, and (20) Yangyang was 18.
