NCT Dream Achievements So Far
This sub-unit of NCT, NCT Dream, debuted on the 25th of August in 2016 with their first single – Chewing Gum. Before 2020, all music that NCT Dream produced has reflected the adolescent years of a teenager’s life. It has been about growing up and overcoming all problems together. NCT Dream has a total of four extended plays, one studio album, and six singles. They have been on one international tour so far in Asia. In 2018, NCT Dream was named in Time’s list of ’25 Most Influential Teen’. They have also been featured in Billboard’s ’21 Under 21′ for three consecutive years in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
NCT Dream’s sales across the world have always been very encouraging. Their last comeback music, and first studio album, Hot Sauce, was released on the 10th of May 2021.

Over the last few years, the world has seen a paradigm shift in the power to influence from the hands of the West to that of the East. The South Korean Hallyu wave is changing the way people consume popular culture globally. The country’s K-Pop music industry is at the very forefront of this movement. We have bands like BTS, EXO, NCT, Stray Kids, BLACKPINK, TWICE, ENHYPEN, and TXT, among many others. With newer bands and soloists debuting every year, the effects of the Hallyu Wave are here to stay for a long time.
