To You was a concept in which each NCT member went down to record a message for another member at the start of their new album, Punch. The video was an emotional roller coaster for both members and viewers, as each of them spoke out about their feelings for one another and expressed their support for the impending album projects. Fans anticipate more touching material in the next To Us, which they feel will be of a similar nature. Furthermore, the photographs depicting the tracklist image have gotten fans talking as they continue to speculate on the topic, genre, and idea that the repackaged album would use. Fans believe the album will have a cool summer vibe with a beachy and refreshing theme based on the group photograph connected to the tracklist.
Furthermore, as is customary for album releases, NCT 127 has altered its profile images on Instagram and Twitter to reflect the album’s design, and fans are completely smitten with the idea. Though there are signs that Ay-Yo is on-brand for NCT 127, fans can also detect an experimental edge, which only adds to their excitement. With Ay-Yo promotions only hours away, fans are anticipating an exciting month filled with teases and content releases, culminating with the release of the long-awaited album.
