NCT Dream is the only Asian artist on Billboard's '2018 21 Under 21'

NCT, NCT Dream
NCT Dream is the only Asian artist on Billboard's '2018 21 Under 21' list.

You may recall other K-pop artists that made the list: TWICE in 2017, Seventeen in 2015, Lee Hi in 2013IU in 2012, HyunA in 2011, and Wonder Girls in 2010. NCT Dream is continuing the honor and they have been named as part of the list this year. 

The blurb reads, 

Since forming in 2016, the seven-member boy band NCT Dream has made waves in the K-pop world with its retro hip-hop and funk-infused take on dance-pop. One of three subgroups of modular boy band NCT (the units often share members), NCT Dream's debut track, "Chewing Gum," landed the collective at No. 2 on the World Digital Song Sales chart -- the first of five singles on the tally. Soon, NCT Dream's lineup will change, according to a self-imposed rule: Members will age out of the boy band when they reach 19, the official age of adulthood in South Korea. It's unclear whether new members will be added now that the first of the original lineup is departing, but the act is only growing stronger: In September, NCT Dream peaked at No. 4 on the Social 50, the highest rank for any NCT unit at the time.

Congratulations to NCT Dream.
