The oldest member is Mark with line 99, while the youngest member is Jisung, line 02, so NCT Dream is one of the groups with the youngest average age in the K-Pop industry.

After NCT 127 made a comeback in December 2016, it is now the turn of NCT Dream to make a comeback.

NCT Dream’s Jaemin Will Star in a JTBC Drama Series of a Popular Webtoon Adaptation
Good news comes for Jaemin’s loyal fans. This is because the NCT Dream member was recently confirmed to play the leading role in JTBC’s new drama How to Hate You (translation title).
Jaemin will portray the character of Han Dae-gang, a new student majoring in animation who likes to read comics and is also a skilled gamer. Even though he looks rude and indifferent outside, Han Dae-gang is a wise and sincere person in the eyes of others.
Jaemin will be accompanied by several other shining young stars, such as Kim Ji-in (previously starring in the web of the drama Just One Bite) who plays the character Oh Mi-ri, Kim Yoo-jin who will play Dasom (Oh Mi-ri’s best friend), and Lee Jong-won (previously starring in the web drama Go, Back Diary) who will play Go Eun-tae.
Unfortunately, How to Hate You is not JTBC’s regular drama which has 16 episodes. The drama adapted from the popular webtoon was just an episode of another JTBC special one-act drama.
