4 Reasons Why NCT Dream’s Show in Manila was the Definition of a “Teenage Dream”


NCT Dream wrapped up their first solo show in Manila last February 29 at the New Frontier Theater. The boys — currently composed of Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Chenle, Jisung, and Jaemin, made sure that their one-night-only concert was memorable for both the members and their Manila crowd.

Here are four reasons why their Dream Show in Manila was the definition of a “teenage dream” come true.

1.) Listening to them speak in Tagalog live.

The members tried their best to say various Tagalog phrases during the show, including “kumusta,” “sobrang miss ko kayo,” “masaya ako,” and some even introduced themselves by starting their sentences with “ako po si.”

2.) Watching them show both their cute and more “all-grown-up” side while performing their hit songs.

During the show, we got to see the boys perform their bubblegum tracks from their debut album such as “Chewing Gum” and “My First and Last,” and their current hits such as “We Go Up” and “Boom.” Fans love seeing them showcase their aegyo, but they also can’t help but swoon when the boys go all-out via their newer songs as they showcase their powerful dancing skills and soulful vocals.

3.) Getting to know NCT Dream behind-the-scenes.

Fans got to see a different side of the members through Jaemin’s self-produced video shown at the end of the show. The said clip highlighted the members’ unique traits, and also Jaemin’s talent when it comes to video production and editing.


4.) The 2000-liners are graduating soon.

As the NCT’s sub-unit with a “graduating system,” the members will also eventually graduate from NCT Dream once they hit the age of 20. This means that Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, and Jaemin will all be graduating soon; and their Dream Show concert in Manila might have been their last solo show in the Philippines.


Nevertheless, the boys all hope to come back to Manila one day. And although they may return, maybe not as a member of the NCT Dream sub-unit, they will always still be a part of the whole group — NCT. 💚
