Remember when NCT 127 told NCTzens that they will wear superhero costumes if their new track "Superhuman" earns its first win on a music show? Seems like their promise is about to come about sooner or later after the hit song got its first Music Bank trophy on June 7.

In an interview on June 1, the group talked about their new track and revealed that all of them assisted in creating their new album "We Are Superhuman."

"'Superhuman' is a dance song with the element of EDM, and if you can awaken your latent potentials and dream with the power of optimism, then you are a superhuman!" Taeyong shared.

When they were asked who stood out the most in this comeback, Haechan, without hesitation, said, "Besides me, I think it's pink-haired Jaehyun."

This was also when Mark made a promise that they will perform on the encore stage while clad in superhero costumes if "Superhuman" wins its first, making his members laugh while others reacted nervously.

Nevertheless, this spectacle is something worth anticipating for. They themselves, when asked, revealed the great assets that their group holds.

For Taeil, NCT 127 is top-notch at almost everything!

"We have everything, including dancing, singing, rapping, good looks, charisma, and humor!"

To clarify a little bit of confusion, the episode of NCT 127's first win was delayed to pay respect to the sinking ship incident in Hungary that was reported to be carrying a lot of Korean passengers. Hence, it was supposed to air on May 31st. GOT7's win for "Eclipse," which aired on June 7th, was intended for the last week of May.

Meanwhile, "We Are Superhuman" reportedly achieved their highest US chart debut to date, having claimed the 11th spot on Billboard 200. The album, which came out on May 24, was also no. 1 on World Albums, Billboard's Internet Albums, Top Album Sales, Digital Albums, Top Current Albums, and Independent Albums.

NCT 127 is currently holding a series of concerts in various countries in and out of Asia. Titled "NEO CITY - The Origin," the group has done shows in Canada, Mexico, and in the United States. They will be having a concert in England, Russia, and France starting next week.

Moreover, the group just performed and met their fans in Manila, Philippines on June 9, along with Kim Donghan, Elris, Sohee, and labelmate Red Velvet for the K-pop World Music Festival 2019 that was held at Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena.
