Xiao Dejun (Chinese: 肖德俊), known professionally as Xiaojun (Hangul: 샤오쥔) , is a Chinese singer and actor. He is one of the main vocalists in WayV.
2018: SM Rookies and the formation of WayV
Xiaojun was introduced as an SM Rookie on July 17, 2018. He began appearing with other members of the pre-debut SM Rookies team in live performances and variety shows.
SM announced plans to launch an NCT China unit on August 13, 2018. The formation of the group was finalized and announced on December 31, under a new China-exclusive label. Due to the political tensions between China and South Korea at the time, the group was not promoted as an NCT sub unit.
2019: WayV debut
Xiaojun debuted in the permanent Chinese sub unit WayV on January 17, 2019 with the EP The Vision. Xiaojun is the power vocal in WayV, hitting the “big note” in WayV songs and serves as counterpoint to the other two WayV mains. His vocals are strong, nimble and gorgeous and he’s constantly trying to improve them with lessons and insights from other NCT members. His vocals are reflective of WayV's sleeker, sexier sound and style compared to the other sub units, as well as a more fluid style of dance.
