AceShowbiz - NCT 127 will make their U.S. television debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday, October 8, and they have something new to treat to their fans. During their appearance on the late-night show, the 10-piece group is set to unveil lead single "Regular" off their new album "Regular-Irregular". It is their first-ever English music.
Following their performance on the show, NCT 127 will hit the red carpet on the 2018 American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on October 9. They have been invited to the annual award-giving show for being one of the fast-rising K-Pop acts. It is not known whether Taeyong and his bandmates will take the stage at the event, just like what BTS (Bangtan Boys) did last year.
This year is surely a good year for NCT 127. They have been announced as Apple Music's latest "Up Next" artist, marking the first K-Pop act in the series. As part of their partnership, they will release a short film exploring the band and their music, a choreography video and an interview with Beats 1.
"We've been on board with NCT 127 for a few years now across Apple, and are excited to welcome them as our newest 'Up Next' artist, helping bring that K-Pop sound to the rest of the world," Beats 1's host Ebro Darden told Billboard. "It's a big day for us as we continue to spread love, music and unity across the globe through Apple Music."
NCT 127's member, Johnny, added, "We are so excited and proud to be Apple Music's 'Up Next' artist this month [of October]. We've seen how instrumental this partnership has been and we can't wait to share our music with more people."
NCT 127 is set to release their upcoming album, "Regular-Irregular", on October 12.
