Slowly letting go of their original, youthful image, NCT Dream had previously been able to come up with a dark boy-style concept with the song ‘Go.’ In the song ‘We Go Up’ they appear more relaxed, cheerful, and colorful but still show the teenage side towards adulthood. There are times when they look neat in uniforms, or sporty when exercising. They are a portrait of freedom as teenagers by playing, doing sports, and traveling together. The ‘We Go Up’ comeback marks the graduation of their oldest member, Mark Lee, from the group, and they would continue their comebacks as a six-member group, without Mark. Here’s the NCT Dream members’ appearances when they promoted the song ‘We Go Up’!

Candle Light


Back in the SM STATION project, the members of NCT Dream released the winter song ‘Candle Light.’ This comeback was Mark’s last song as part of NCT Dream before finally graduating on December 31, 2018. The members play the role of a film crew. Wearing old-fashioned stacks of costumes made of flannel, checkered patterns, and beret hats, the members are described as having to repeat the shooting process even for simple scenes such as catching a ball, while the rest of their colleagues are busy peeking through the camera, setting properties, and recording sound. Here’s how the NCT Dream members looked when they made their appearances in the song ‘Candle Light’!
