NCT 127 Explains Meaning Behind ‘2 Baddies’ & Johnny Shares What He Misses About Hometown Chicago
Music October 11, 2022
Is Jennifer Hudson becoming an NCTzen?
On Tuesday’s episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” global K-pop superstars NCT 127 — whose name comprises an acronym for “neo culture technology” and the longitude of Seoul, South Korea — lit up the stage by performing “2 Baddies.”
After the energetic performance of the title track from their latest album — which debuted at No. 1 last month on Billboard’s U.S. World Albums chart — JHud chatted with the group and asked them the meaning behind “2 Baddies,” which has charted in the U.S. as well as South Korea and Japan.
“It means [going] high speed [toward] our dreams and goals,” they responded.
Though the group is based in Seoul, Yuta was born in Japan, while Mark is from Canada.
However, Johnny is from Chicago, Illinois — just like Jennifer!

“I’m a Chicago girl. Who is from Chicago?” Jennifer asked. “Do you miss it?”
Though the Midwest is known for its freezing temperatures during the winter, Johnny said he actually “misses the weather.”
“You never get anywhere that’s windy and cold,” he added.
