NCT vs BTS (Comparison) 


The rap line of NCT is not only in SM but in the whole industry, the rappers who make it the best are Jaemin, Yang Yang, Shotaro, Sungchan, and many more, but out of the 23 members, they’re not the best in rapping, but still impressive. 

Just listen to RM and SUGA; they are priceless, outstanding, and mind-blowing. Both are good (NCT and BTS), but BTS is better at rapping. 


BTS has an excellent and robust vocal line because of Maknae Jungkook. And then V, Jimin, and Jin’s vocals are unique and outstanding. But NCT also comes from the vocal powerhouse SM, and others like Chelne and re-debut singing career are also from SM. They are also better trained and well-equipped with the help of SM. 


BTS has the most challenging and iconic choreography in K-pop, their dances are shockingly excellent and unique, and it is made even better with the singing. NCT’s choreography is also tricky as they are a growing group with different styles and many more members; their dances and formations are hard to accomplish while singing and rapping. 


Don’t forget that the NCT is from SM Entertainment, so don’t be surprised as they consist of the most robust 3rd gen K-pop. Do not underestimate BTS as they are also best at visual and stunning, but NCT is way better.

Still, the members have given them a name called czennies, which sounds like a season.
  • But if compared to other K-pop bands, the famous BTS band is equally excellent and exceptional; their dance moves, singing, rapping, and hard work made them successful and famous.
