NCT Dream make '21 Under 21' list for 3 years in a row

AKP STAFF

NCT Dream have made the '21 Under 21' list for 3 years in a row.

On November 6, Billboard revealed their annual '21 Under 21' list, and NCT Dream were named alongside singers like Billie EilishKoffee24kGoldn, and Noah Cyrus as artists under 21 years of age who are succeeding on music charts and breaking out "in a big way."

On NCT Dream, Billboard wrote, "NCT Dream (a subunit of the K-pop group NCT) experienced a first this year: Original member Mark returned, ending the band's long-held rule that members would leave at the Korean age of 20. Prior to his return, NCT Dream led the Emerging Artists chart thanks to its EP Reload; since Mark rejoined, all seven members appeared on NCT's second full-length, NCT Resonance Pt. 1, which hit No. 6 on the Billboard 200 (and topped the World Albums chart) and was made with the group's NCTzens in mind. Says Haechan: 'Since it has been a hard time for many, I hope our songs provide a sense of hope and strength.'"

When asked what the most powerful thing about being a young artist in the music industry is, Haechan said, "I'm really grateful that I found what I liked to do at a young age, and that's what brought me this far. Of course, there were things I needed to give up in order to pursue my dreams, but I've also gained that much more during the process. And I want to achieve even more moving forward."

NCT Dream are also the only K-pop artists to make the list this year, and they're also the first Asian artists to make the list for 3 years in a row.

first Asian artists to make the list 3 times in a row? OMG

This year is really the year for NCTzens. NCT 127 billion sellers, kick it cultural reset, Ridin topped the charts #1 position, Mark coming back to dream DREAM7, both NCT 127 and NCT dream albums are among the best selling albums of 2020, NCT 2020 which was a dream come true for NCTzens, new members Sungchan and Shotaro entered the family, NCT breaking their records with 1.4M sales for resonance pt.1 and NCT world 2020 reality show with mnet, NCT constantly being among top 3 brand value rankings for each month, MAW being the first NCT MV to reach 25M in 24 hours, From home being the second with 10M. From home being a beautiful and emotional message for both NCT and NCTzens, MAW going to reach 100M within a month and the first NCT MV to do that, Yuta and Johnny more lines, resonance pt.2 is still coming soon, the new and old members making it to NCT U unit, More 23 contents to come, they gonna do something together for Christmas too, Yuwin is back. 23 members back in MAMA as NCT. Despite everything, this has been a good year for NCTzens. All thanks to NCT.

Think again when you say NCT is flop.
