NCT 127 recently released their third studio album ‘Sticker,’ and it topped both domestic and international music charts. The title track, also called ‘Sticker’ was well-received. They got more than 1 million stock pre-orders, and also had the third-highest first day sales in Janteo history.

The group is now enjoying the appreciation and love from all over the world, but has a new challenge next. They will have to show their comedic side through SNL Korea. Comedy, as you know it, requires a different kind of energy. Hopefully, NCT 127 can bring their refreshing energy forward and entertain the audience. They become the first idol host as well as tbe youngest host for this rebooted season.
