Can you believe it’s been three years since we first heard the iconic “Ch-ch-ch-ch-chewing gum” lyrics?

In other news, Mark Lee finally went to see the Dreamies perform! Fan accounts report that he arrived at SBS Inkigayo‘s prerecording this morning to congratulate the members on their 3rd anniversary; all the boys were elated to see him and he even went on stage with them. They hugged, Mark led the “Yo Dream” chant, and many fans in the audience cried… He will forever be NCT DREAM’s leader:’)
On August 25, 2016 NCT’s maknae unit NCT DREAM debuted, comprised of then (in Korean age) 17-year-old Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, and Jaemin, 16-year-old Chenle, 15-year-old Jisung, and their 18-year-old leader Mark. Today, three years later, we are left with only six members, as Mark graduated last year, but in our hearts – and in theirs, it’s safe to say – DREAM is always OT7.
These boys made us fall in love with their youthful charms and strong brotherly bond, and we’ve enjoyed every new song they came out with. Starting with the legendary debut song “Chewing Gum“, which they performed on hoverboards (something never done before!), through “My First And Last” that got them their first win (on Valentine’s Day 2017), their summery comeback with “We Young“, their angsty and cool teenager concept with “Go“, all the way to the emotional “We Go Up” and the powerful “BOOM” – we’ve loved every step of NCT DREAM’s musical journey. Don’t forget about all their amazing B-side tracks too! We hope this inspires you to go back and listen to all of their albums😊
In honor of their 3rd anniversary, the Dreamies released a dance practice video for “BOOM”, wearing school uniforms. Check it out below!
