SM Rookies to graduate soon – New NCT unit coming soon?

SM Entertainment just gave all of us some bittersweet news today; they’re terminating the SM Rookies App…

The current rookies will be graduating and the app will be officially terminated on June 20th, 2016.

With all of the current rookies graduating, that means the next phase of NCT will be starting soon.

Judging from prior rumors, the next NCT unit to debut will be the Japan unit.

SMROOKIES app to close New NCT unit to debut soon

We hope to see Yuta, Hansol, Johnny soon, as well as some of those hidden gems we know that SM is stashing away.

EXO has plans of coming back next month, so perhaps the new unit will make their debut in July, or August? We’ll see.

Now we just have to wait patiently, for a little longer.

Back to the rookies app, here is all the information that you need if you’re a user of the app:

Here is the notice provided by the Rookiesapp:

Hello, this is the manager of “Rookies Entertainment”.

The Rookies members  will be graduating consecutively from April 4th, 2016.
