SM’s schedule suggests we’ll get a comeback from WayV and Lucas x Hendery’s official release of Jalapeno
WayV, NCT’s Chinese unit, had launched a new project in mid-2021, which excited fans. We got sub-unit releases from all members. One of them happened to be Lucas and Hendery’s “Jalapeno” in August 2021. But just before its release, alleged ex-girlfriends of Lucas’s were surfacing on social media. They claimed he cheated on them, set them on fire and used them for their money. He and his label SM apologized while the NCT star took a break.
Supporting fans pointed out that both Lucas and SM had neither confirmed nor denied the allegations, meaning there was a chance he was innocent. However, we have yet to get an update on his dating scandal. He was even removed from the NCT 2021 and SM Town ensemble album. Since Lucas is one of the most popular idols among SM, some WayV fans believed that he was guilty, otherwise SM would not have kept their artist, who often attracts new fans, on the break.

Is Lucas from WayV innocent? Fans hire a cyber team and find evidence to debunk the dating scandal
However, due to the recent turn of events, many are wondering if Lucas will return to NCT and WayV. A few days ago, the remaining six members of WayV hinted that we were finally getting “Jalapeno,” which had been postponed indefinitely. On January 11, SM’s January schedule was leaked. So we’re going to get a WayV comeback, Lucas and Hendery’s “Jalapeno” and NCT U’s “coNEXTion”. Then on January 13th, four days before WayV’s debut anniversary, the performance video of “Jalapeno” was leaked.
Hopeful fans have concluded that WayV’s comeback and the release of “Japaleno” mean Lucas’ scandal could soon be resolved if he rejoins his groups. It should also be noted that NCT U is the term for temporary subunits of NCT. So with Lucas unable to participate in their full group comeback – NCT 2021 Universe – fans are hoping that “coNEXTion” is a way for him to continue being a part of the full group’s activities.
Is Lucas rejoining NCT and WayV?
One lucky fan shared: “SM RELEASE FROM JALAPEÑO SOON Y’ALL. LUCAS IS COMING HOME!!! HE’S COMING BACK.” Another felt “jalapeno” was leaked by sasaengs (stalkers): “I was so hesitant until today, but now I’m just convinced that the whole thing was made up and just a lie to prank him. But one WayV fan tweeted, “Why is he trying to get everyone’s attention lol? When the winwin actor confirmed this, he updated Weibo. The sg2022 teaser release keeps his fans asking about him. D -4 Wayv Anniversary HIS FANS leaked the performance version of Jalapeno Lmao.”
Another fan commented: “Universal leak now jalapeño leak why is it so easy to leak nct and wayv songs??? Do sasaengs have full access to everything as long as they ask?” A Lucas fan also posted, “LUCAS’ POSTS ON KEEP RUNNING’S OFFICIAL IG ACCOUNT ARE BACK!! 😭😭😭 They dearchived everything Lucas related! !!”
