Winwin, aka Dong Sicheng, is a Chinese K-pop idol. He is a member of NCT and the sub-units NCT 127, NCT U, and the Chinese NCT sub-unit, WayV. His first appearance on an NCT-related music release was NCT 127's first mini-album, NCT #127.

He has appeared on several shows but has not made his leading debut yet. Due to this, many fans are excited about what is to come. Given that the studio was established specifically for acting promotions, fans are rightfully speculating on the possibilities.

Given this revelation, the community is now expecting to see him in Chinese shows and movies. Unknown to some, Winwin graduated from The Central Academy of Drama with a major in performance.

The institution is one of the top three art schools in China. Located in Beijing, it comes under the purview of the Ministry of Education. Expectations for the singer's eventual debut are high as fans continue to cheer on the idol.
