Their initial couple are almost the same, JY is for JaeYong and YJ is for YunJae. The visual from both couple pairings are pretty similar, Taeyong has always been compared to Jaejoong. And for Jaehyun, he has the the same real name as the leader of TVXQ Yunho, which is Jung Yoon Oh. Taeyong and Jaehyun met during the SM Rookies training, with the other trainees, as well. Their relationship started getting closer when they finally debuted in one group, called ‘NCT’. Both of them always appear in the comeback list from each sub-unit of NCT. They also had some sweet fanservice for the fans, especially their shippers. For example, they always say sweet things to each other, especially at fansigns.

Taeyong and Jaehyun Showing Their Abs Together
On April 1st, 2019, NCT uploaded their daily ‘NEO CITY: LOG’ about their tour preparation. The video were taken by Yuta, and started with them standing together in the auditorium during a practice. Taeyong wanted to check something under his shirt, and then all of the sudden he lifted the shirt up completely and showed his abs. Seeing his hyung like that, he followed as well, to lift his shirt up. Yuta then gave a quick peace sign and got out from in front of the camera, allowing the two members to steal the spotlight show. Taeyong has actually shown his body before, during NCT U’s ‘Baby Don’t Stop’, but for Jaehyun it was the first time. Before NCTZEN’s saw his slight abs revealed during the dynamic choreography, it happened when Jaehyun accidentally lifted his shirt up.
