Mark has always been one of NCT’s “Ace,” who is talented in all areas may it be rap, dance and singing. He also has this irresistible charm and image that NCTzens can’t help but love. As a member of a group with multiple members though, it’s always hard to showcase individual music presence and identity.

This is why supporters of Mark think that a solo debut album will unleash more of his side. Fortunately, the male star is also positive about releasing it in the future!

5. ATEEZ HongJoong
