NCT Dream is the third sub-unit of NCT by SM Entertainment and consists of the following members: Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung. They debuted on August 25, 2016, with the single Chewing gum.
The seven-member group rebranded themselves as “young adults” in 2020.
In November 2019, when the septet held their first solo concert, The Dream Show in Seoul, one of the members, Mark, had graduated from the group.
However, SM Entertainment decided to drop the concept of “degree” altogether and Mark joined the group. For the uninitiated, when SM Entertainment created NCT Dream, they wanted the group to be a rotating unit. Thus, once members reached the age of 20, they would “graduate” and new members would be added.
Since their debut, the talented group has released four EPs, six singles and two studio albums and toured Asia.
