NCT‘s Winwin is now one of the music industry’s hottest stars, and he just only just turned 24 internationally. While we celebrate his success and birthday, let’s look back on his growth, from his younger days up to now.
He was just a baby, but even then, he was a natural at posing!
It’s clear that he has always been photogenic since the beginning!
Of course, when we get to that age between childhood and young adult, we may be a little awkward. Still, when in doubt, just throw up the “V!”
Like most of us, Winwin also managed to have fun at school and would take selfies!
He was always musically inclined!
He majored in traditional Chinese dance in school for six years and even got first place for dance in high school! Afterward, he attended Beijing Dance Academy.
He first entered SM Entertainment in 2013 when he was just in elementary school and since took classes for trainees on and off. He was introduced as a SMRookie on January 5, 2016. He shared a dorm with NCT’s China line at this time.
7. University student
While he did go back to China to attend university, in the summer of 2015, he hung out with other Chinese trainees from SM Entertainment at Lotte World.
While he was still part of SMRookies, he appeared in NCT U‘s “WITHOUT YOU” MV in 2016.
9. NCT debut
Winwin finally debuted as a member of NCT 127 with the position of the lead dancer in their debut mini-album.
10. NCT U
He made his official debut in NCT U in 2018 for “BOSS.”
11. NCT 2018
In March of 2018, he participated in the project NCT 2018.
He began preparing for WayV in November 2018 then made his debut in the China-based sub-unit in January 2019 for their EP The Vision.

Last year, he participated in the new project group for NCT Resonance Pt. 1, NCT Resonance Pt. 2, and the full album Resonance.
Happy birthday, Winwin!
