NCT fans demand SM announcement regarding Lucas’ future
NCT member Lucas has been on an indefinite hiatus since he was accused of cheating and gaslighting by his alleged ex-girlfriend about 2 years ago.
However, the evidence pointing to his return seems to be multiplying lately.
The idol first appeared on the reality show Welcome to NCT Universe in a montage of the 7 members of WayV.
oh my oh my!!! NCT Universe included Lucas in WayV and used ot7 images to talk about the members as SM rookies

January 1st, Lucas posted a video of himself dancing on his Instagram, demonstrating his undeniable talent. In addition, former CEO of SM Entertainment Lee Sung Soo posted a photo taken with Lucas on his Instagram profile.
It goes without saying that this particularly caught the attention of fans. Many exploded with joy on social media at the thought of Lucas returning to the front of the stage.
Others, on the other hand, have revealed that they don’t want the idol to return..
But since then, fans have received no word of a potential return and have grown increasingly frustrated that the agency hasn’t responded.
Of course, SM Entertainment is in the midst of a merger and acquisition with HYBE, which SM Entertainment’s co-CEOs and employees have all spoken out against. This legal situation affects the artists of SM Entertainment.
SM Entertainment is also releasing “SM 3.0”, the company’s latest improvement plan. These plans include one major change for NCT: the discontinuation of the infinite expansion system.
It is therefore understandable that these changes may impact SM Entertainment’s plans for its artists.
However, fans feel that SM failed to protect their artist.
As a result, fans trended the hashtag #SMGiveUsAStatement, demanding that the company make a clear statement about the allegations surrounding Lucas and let fans know what SM Entertainment has planned for its future.
At the moment, SM has not yet provided an answer regarding Lucas.
