NCTzens Trend ‘#TaeilDeservesBetter’ After NCT 127 Released ‘2 Baddies’ MV Reaction

After SM Entertainment released the official video of the NCT 127 members reacting to their new MV “2 Baddies,” fans almost immediately noticed that Taeil seemed not as happy as the rest.

NCTzens then claimed that it might be because the main vocalist has almost zero screentime in the new music video.

A fan noted that his appearance in “2 Baddies” is only 7.4 seconds, while “more popular” members like Taeyong and Jaehyun have 30 and 23 seconds, respectively.

As a result, fans created a hashtag to show support for Taeil. 


The hashtag has reached almost 100,000 tweets and never left the trending topics on Twitter’s music category.

One fan said they will not let the mistreatment slide as Taeil was treated like a backup dancer and singer when he is actually an important member of the group.


Another tweet compiled his reactions to the video and said that even though the idol looked like he was spacing out, they knew he was upset, claiming that the singer was not his usual self.

Another tweet, with almost 900 likes, stated:

“It makes zero sense that Taeil spends time and effort recording scenes really early/late hours for it to be chopped to less than 8 seconds or even less. His recent reel (video) has more seconds than his mv screen time… #TaeilDeservesBetter”

Some NCTzens also pointed out that this is not the first time this was done to Taeil.

During their “Favorite” comeback, Taeil said he was excited about the music video, only for fans to end up disappointed as his screen time was minimal.

Even the comments on the music video reaction on YouTube are mostly about the NCT 127 main vocalist.

NCTzens express their frustration to the supposed unfair treatment to the idol, saying:

“Taeil deserves better. Seeing his disappointed expression breaks my heart. We all know how hard you work Taeil and we are going to shout it loud and clear so that Sm gives you a better treatment. We love you Moon Taeil and of course, Doyoung deserves better too.”

“I’m glad Taeil didn’t hide his disappointment. It is important that the SM respects ALL of its members. Taeil has one of the most beautiful voices of his generation. An angel’s face must be more present in the comebacks. It carries the highest notes. It is important to balance the lines for your members. We are happy with this new album but we are OT9, everyone must shine. NCT127 we love you.”
