After debuting their comeback song “Superhuman” on Good Morning America, NCT 127 were spotted walking around New York City. But, a stranger called them BTS and that’s when a fan stepped in.
Mark could be heard saying, “We’re not BTS.” And this special fan declared, “They’re NCT. Get it together.” NCT 127 cheered at the fan’s words and that stranger received their answer.
(everyone on the street kept asking if they were bts)
Mark: sorry we are not bts
Me: THEY ARE NCT!!

The most heartbreaking part though was Mark’s barely heard response, “Sorry, we’re not BTS.” Fans were so taken aback that they praised Mark while feeling sad he’d felt the need to say that in the first place.
Mark really had to say “sorry we’re not bts” to all them ppl- like no one deserves nct on some real shit pic.twitter.com/Np5ra98xSl

Fans were understanding of NCT 127’s situation and felt apologetic to both groups for not being recognized for their talents.
this kinda hurts lol. for both sides – nct not being recognized as themselves even tho they are amazing and deserve recognition 🙁 and locals not giving a shit enough about bts to know what they actually look like and just want to see them for clout :(. sigh

Mark is a thoughtful guy for responding the way he did, and all of NCT 127 responded in a polite manner after being mistaken for another group. Most importantly, that fan had a lot of courage to stand up and announce what everyone needed to know.
