The members of NCT meet so many fans through fansigns and video calls, but this one interaction between Yuta and a 7-year-old fan was so sweet!
Back in February when NCT 127 were promoting their LOVEHOLIC album, the group held a video call event to meet some lucky fans.
One of these lucky fans was the son of an NCTzen who said his dream is to be “a cool idol like Yuta!”
The original poster (OP) of the story said that their son, Haru, was joking around before the video call, but he froze when Yuta showed up on the screen!
OP said his son was joking around right up until the video call, but he froze as soon as “Yuta hyung” showed up because he got nervous. OP also said, “Yuta hyung” was really kind, which touched OP.

Their son asked Yuta to read a letter he had written for him.
I want to be a cool idol like Yuta! During dance lessons, I fall asleep while standing up. Please cheer me on by saying, ‘Haru, don’t fall asleep!’
Yuta read the letter out loud and wished Haru good luck! He even said, “Let’s meet again on stage, okay? A few years later!”
Before the video call ended, Yuta reminded Haru to listen to his mother and study well. Haru said he will work hard!

Yuta even spoke about Haru during a livestream and said that he was “so cute!”

In March, Haru and his mother did an interview for a special segment on Fuji TV Viking More dedicated to Yuta, who is the most followed Japanese celebrity!
They aired clips from the fansign, and Haru’s mother said that Yuta’s charm could be seen by the way he held a livestream after the video call event for the fans who were unable to win, and that his fanbase will only grow from here.
This week, the mother said they were organizing their son’s school bag and came across Haru’s essay draft for the newspaper. He had written about his video call with Yuta!
The title is “NCT Fansign Video Call,” and he had written, “I had a video call with Yuta from NCT 127. My heart stopped…” Haru’s mom said Yuta had a bigger impact on Haru than expected; he even said he wants to go to Korea and meet Yuta!
Fans everywhere are rooting for Haru, and hope to see him with Yuta again one day — maybe even on stage together!
