EXO, Red Velvet, and NCT 127 are officially opening up their personal fan clubs! The exciting news comes just a month after fellow SM groups SHINee and Girl's Generation re-opened their fan club memberships after 10 years.
On March 14, SM Entertainment, through the official EXO, Red Velvet, and NCT 127 Twitter accounts, announced that the three groups were opening up fan clubs. Starting today, anyone who has the Lysn App or a YES24 account can sign up for their own fan memberships.
There are a few steps you need to take before you become an official member. So if you'd like to read up on all the information yourself, we've provided a link to each of their websites here (EXO), here (Red Velvet), and here (NCT 127). If not, we have a short recap of all the steps coming up. The first thing you must do, is download Lysn, or use your YES24 account, and look up the specific key words that'll link you to your group of choice. For EXO, you will type in "EXO-L," for Red Velvet you will use "ReVeluv," and for NCT 127 you will have to input "NCTzen 127".
According to the each given site, a one time only application fee of 35,000 KRW (31 USD) is required from all new members. Once that payment is complete, you'll be able to renew your membership every year for 15,000 KRW (13 USD), this time without having to pay the additional charge of 35,000 KRW. Paired with your new membership comes an actual membership card, a welcome kit, a board with exclusive photos and videos (ACE members only), pre-sale tickets for concert and meetup's, the opportunity to participate in idol broadcasts, and more.
