In my case, the way I got into NCT is a long story tbh. I was watching a drama around 2017 and there was one actor that caught my eye (Kim Min Seok), so I watched all his dramas and variety shows. Zoom forward to October/November 2018, I was watching one of his variety shows and pop comes out Kang Daniel. That's right. I was a wannable before I became a fulltime nctzen 😂 His personality was fun, so I decided to keep up with their group for awhile because I knew they were gonna disband soon. On the same variety show, Mark appears near the end of season two :D he made those awful eggs and I just went "oh my god I need to stan this guy" because his eggs were horrible HAHA. After WayV had just debuted with the chinese version of Regular, Wanna One disbanded and I retired from being a wannable and transitioned to become an nctzen in January 2019 😂 its been almost two years and I don't regret a single thing because of Mark's bad eggs. Tbh on that variety show I was watching, Xiumin, Mino (Winner), Daniel, Yong Junhyung (Highlight/beast), Junhoe (IKON) and Mark (the one and only dork, Mark Lee) all appeared on that show. I'd continued watching that show for Daniel but ended up finishing it by turning into an nctzen. I could've been an exo-l or ikonic, etc. but I CHOSE MARK BECAUSE OF HIS FAILED FRIED EGGS.
