To You was a concept where each NCT member sat down to send a message to another member at the beginning of their new album recording, Punch. The video was quite an emotional ride for both the members and fans as each of them opened up about how they felt about each other and shared their support for the upcoming album creations. Fans believe that the upcoming To Us might be of a similar concept and eagerly look forward to more heartwarming content.

Guessing from the group image attached to the tracklist, fans think that the album might be of a chill summer aesthetic with a beachy and refreshing concept.
Additionally, as a given for album releases, NCT 127 has changed its profile pictures on Instagram and Twitter to match the album's aesthetic and fans are totally in love with the concept. Though there are a few hints that Ay-Yo is on-brand for NCT 127, fans can also sense an experimental edge which only excites them further.
With Ay-Yo promotions hours away, fans await an eventful month lined up with teasers and content releases that are in store for them, culminating with the release of the much awaited album.
