On August 24, 2016, SM Entertainment blessed us and debuted a group that made the whole K-pop world go "uWu," and it's none other than NCT Dream. Under the umbrella group NCT (which currently consists of 21 members,) Dream is the subunit for the group's youngest artists whose ages range from 16-19. With their youthful charm and cutesy aesthetic, every teenage fangirl (and beyond) fell for K-pop's freshest faces two years ago.
Consisting of Mark, Haechan, Chenle, Renjun, Jeno, Jisung, and Jaemin, the Dreamies stole the scene with school boy outfits and candy cute visuals in their debut track "Chewing Gum." Flash-forward to present, NCT Dream's promising appeal proved to be successful as they recently became part of TIME Magazine's 25 Most Influential Teens of 2018 as the only K-pop act that made it to the list.
Their most recent release was "We Go Up," where they noticeably have shed their baby boy looks and showcased a more matured swag! But, sadly, having a rotational concept where the age limit is 19, one of the original members, 99-liner Mark Lee, already graduated last December 31.
If you're an NCTizen yourself and saw these boys grew up right before your eyes, then we're pretty sure that you're proud of their glow-up. And lucky for us Filipino fans, we'll be seeing NCT Dream live at the upcoming K-Pop Friendship Concert!
Celebrating 70 years of friendship, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism presents the 2019 K-Pop Friendship Concert In Manila. Happening on March 7, 2019, 6 PM, at the Mall of Asia Arena, NCT Dream, along with Korean acts APRIL and NOIR as well as homegrown talents VinSuriChan and Silent Sanctuary, will grace this musical affair which is something that every K-pop enthusiast shouldn't miss!
