SPECIAL INTERVIEW
about NEW ALBUM

The lead song “Glitch Mode” carries a unique idea that “compares the notion of a heart experiencing too much love to a computer error”. What was your impression when you first heard the song, lyrics, and concept?

When I first heard the concept of “Glitch Mode”, I personally thought it was a fresh idea and I liked the feel of it. It’s nice to have a clear theme, and I found it interesting that we made an error!

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

It’s the dancing. I would like people to pay attention to the whole body choreography in the first chorus, which expresses the idea of “buffering”!

What kind of new growth or change do you think NCT DREAM has made with this album?

I think each member’s vocals and rap ability have improved.

From your own objective standpoint, what do you think is the best part of this album?

I think that the best part is the mindset and attitude of this album. It’s an album made with more passion, responsibility and even greed than any other work we’ve done. We haven’t used this kind of expression until now, and I felt it imbued us with a pretty vivid energy. It was so strong that I feel this energy now, even before the album is released.

What performances from other members made you instantly shout out “cool!”?

I think RENJUN singing  his high notes in “Glitch Mode” is really cool!

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

I feel the most high-tech when I am making music. I enjoy recording and working alone. But generally, I’m an analog guy. I’m the kind of person that prefers bills and coins rather than cards.

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

For everyone’s safety, we all do a lot of voluntary COVID-19 rapid testing, but once I misread the result of the kit, and was really surprised and tensed up! But when I glanced at it again, it was negative.

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

Shouting “Yo! DREAM!”!

What technology can you not live without?

Wireless earphones.

about FASHION

If you’re getting ready to go out with a lot of energy and a fashionable look during the spring, what kind of clothes do you want to wear and where do you want to go?

I would like to wear jeans and Converse with a perfectly fitting T-shirt , and go to a cafe and do some shopping.

What kind of outerwear do you like for spring?

Vests.

about SPRING

What kind of dream would you like to have if you could sleep as much as you like on a pleasant spring day?

I’d like to dream of flying in the sky.

In this season many people start a new lifestyle. Is there something you have recently started or are thinking of starting?

Previously, I arranged the flowers for a content video. It was so much fun that I would like to try it  again and grow some plants.

What do you imagine when you hear the word spring?

Cherry blossoms.

MESSAGE メッセージ

It was an honor to be able to discuss many topics and words with MEN’S NON-NO regarding NCT DREAM’s comeback new album. We have worked very hard preparing NCT DREAM’s new album “Glitch Mode” so we hope that many people will enjoy it. Also, if it’s possible to plan another future project with MEN’S NON-NO, I would like to try bungee jumping.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW
about NEW ALBUM

The lead song “Glitch Mode” carries a unique idea that “compares the notion of a heart experiencing too much love to a computer error”. What was your impression when you first heard the song, lyrics, and concept?

When I first heard the concept, I thought it was really fresh. The idea is kind of addictive and I kept thinking about it in my head all the time.

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

It’s the dancing. The choreography of the refrain part has a strange and interesting quality, so I think it will be enjoyable if you pay attention to that part!

What kind of new growth or change do you think NCT DREAM has made with this album?

Each song features a variety of concepts, and you can feel the new style for NCT DREAM in 2022.

From your own objective standpoint, what do you think is the best part of this album?

All the songs make use of each member’s voice. I think that is the best point of this album!

What performances from other members made you instantly shout out “cool!”?

In the bridge part of “Glitch Mode”, there is a section where CHENLE is walking, and the other members are performing as though they are protecting CHENLE. I think that the vibe there is really cool.

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

My room is surrounded by different kinds of machines, so I feel high tech when I’m in my room. On the other hand, I sometimes draw pictures, so at those times I feel analog.

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

I was dancing crazy while practicing, and my neck got stiff. I think that’s the most buggy I’ve been these days. But don’t worry, my neck is better now ^^

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

Hula hoop!

What technology can you not live without?

My smartphone.

about FASHION

If you’re getting ready to go out with a lot of energy and a fashionable look during the spring, what kind of clothes do you want to wear and where do you want to go?

I would want to wear a simple white T-shirt and go see the cherry blossoms.

What kind of outerwear do you like for spring?

Jackets.

about SPRING

What kind of dream would you like to have if you could sleep as much as you like on a pleasant spring day?

I’d like to dream of happily going out looking forward to the nice spring weather without making any plans.

In this season many people start a new lifestyle. Is there something you have recently started or are thinking of starting?

I’ve started a healthier diet.

What do you imagine when you hear the word spring?

Cherry blossoms.

MESSAGE メッセージ

Spring is approaching, so please be careful not to catch a cold. When springtime comes, I recommend starting something new, it doesn’t matter what it is.

I thought it was new and unusual! The title of the song had a clear concept, so I was looking forward to what kind of performance I could do.

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

The dancing. I hope you will pay attention to the energy-filled dance break!

All the members have been thinking and working hard to make good music and show our fans a more mature appearance.

From your own objective standpoint, what do you think is the best part of this album?

I think that all the new things we have tried  have had a positive impact on NCT DREAM!

What performances from other members made you instantly shout out “cool!”?

The choreography of the second chorus, performed by MARK and JISUNG, is fresh and cool.

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

I think I’m high tech because I’m the type who doesn’t reject new things, but is interested in them!

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

Whenever I wake up in the morning, I bug out a little bit. It’s hard for me to wake up.

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

Indoor life.

What technology can you not live without?

“Bubble” (a service that allows fan club members to exchange messages) that can communicate with NCTzen (the name of the fans) is indispensable, isn’t it?

about FASHION

If you’re getting ready to go out with a lot of energy and a fashionable look during the spring, what kind of clothes do you want to wear and where do you want to go?

For spring, I tend to wear hooded shirts. For going out, I’d like to wear a hooded shirt and ride a bicycle.

I think a light cardigan would look good.

about SPRING

What kind of dream would you like to have if you could sleep as much as you like on a pleasant spring day?

I’m still looking for something, but I’d like to learn something new.

What do you imagine when you hear the word spring?

Hay fever! And also spring makes me think of the song “My Youth” by NCT DREAM. I think that song gives you a warm spring atmosphere.

MESSAGE メッセージ

MEN’S NON-NO readers, and NCTzen!! It seems that NCT DREAM will finally be able to meet you with a new look. Please expect lots of new things from us, and are grateful for your continued support.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW
about NEW ALBUM

The lead song “Glitch Mode” carries a unique idea that “compares the notion of a heart experiencing too much love to a computer error”. What was your impression when you first heard the song, lyrics, and concept?

That was the first time I learned the word “Glitch”! The word fits well with the song and concept, and I remember thinking that it was a good fit for the album’s title song.

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

The vocals. I paid attention to the pre-chorus. I still wanted to make that part interesting while leaving some extra room to focus on my vocal portion .

What kind of new growth or change do you think NCT DREAM has made with this album?

This album reciprocates the love you gave to us when we released “Hot Sauce”, and at the same time, we wanted to prove that we deserve that much love. Together with the members, I wanted to communicate with all the people who supported the album production and make something really cool. I think that the unity of the team has deepened,  including every member’s individual skill level.

From your own objective standpoint, what do you think is the best part of this album?

I think the way the title is expressed is good. I enjoyed relating the theme of “buffering” in a straightforward manner.

What performances from other members made you instantly shout out “cool!”?

I thought that JENO and JI SUNG’S  dance break was really cool and good.

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

I think that my usual lifestyle is that of a high-tech person. Thanks to my little lazy habits, I seem to use it in order to manage living comfortably. On the other hand, when I perform on stage, I feel analog. These days, it’s hard to meet up in real life, so I spend a lot of time online. But it also really made me miss meeting everyone in-person.

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

When I sang my first OST, I had a lot of trouble. I usually sing any song with my own style, but on that OST song I hid my personal style and tried to create a sensibility that suits the song. At that moment, I felt something like a bug.
(Editor’s note: OST in the answer = Korean drama “PLYFRIENDS Soyeon University 22 Student ID Number” insert song “Good person (2022)”

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

I love my singing voice and songs. I think if I am able to love that about myself, so will everyone else. This is where I have confidence.

What technology can you not live without?

Video games. Playing games has a great healing effect for me.

about FASHION

If you’re getting ready to go out with a lot of energy and a fashionable look during the spring, what kind of clothes do you want to wear and where do you want to go?

I think spring is the season when my favorite bucket hat suits me best. If I’m going out, I’ll wear a bucket hat and go to see the cherry blossoms.

What kind of outerwear do you like for spring?

A riders jacket.  I think it’s a good season to wear a riders jacket.

about SPRING

What kind of dream would you like to have if you could sleep as much as you like on a pleasant spring day?

Actually, I don’t really like dreaming, but if I dream, I like to dream of oversleeping on a spring day. Just listening to “Spring Day Morning Sleep” makes me feel better and makes me feel happy.

In this season many people start a new lifestyle. Is there something you have recently started or are thinking of starting?

I have started reading again. It’s been a long time, so it’s tough, but I’m working hard.

What do you imagine when you hear the word spring?

Cherry Blossoms. It is the most famous flower for spring and I think it is beautiful.

MESSAGE メッセージ

MEN’S NON-NO readers! Spring has sprung. As the new season begins, I hope you achieve your goals, and I hope you will support us, NCT DREAM, as well!

First of all, I thought the title was fresh, and I was happy to show NCTzen (the name of the fan) something new!

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

I want you to pay attention to everything about us! From head to toe, you will find various charming qualities that you haven’t seen before.

What kind of new growth or change do you think NCT DREAM has made with this album?

The fact that the members were directly involved in the production of this album was a major point of growth.

From your own objective standpoint, what do you think is the best part of this album?

There is a unique choreography that expresses “buffering” in the refrain. I would like you to pay attention to that.

What performances from other members made you instantly shout out “cool!”?

MARK’s rap in the second chorus is cool. And there are elements of rapping and performances that are paired with JI SUNG. I hope everyone thinks that is also cool.

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

I don’t think I’m ever analog. I always use high-tech stuff. I don’t think people can live without tools. I’m high tech!

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

When I try to remember the choreography, I often bug out.

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

Using tech stuff.  (But I can’t fix anything.)

PC, smartphone, automatic trash can, Wi-Fi, internet.

about FASHION

What kind of outerwear do you like for spring?

A leather jacket.

about SPRING

What kind of dream would you like to have if you could sleep as much as you like on a pleasant spring day?

I don’t like oversleeping. I want to do something else if I have time to sleep. I think that a good night’s sleep is good for your health, so if I dream, I want to sleep soundly and dream of all black.

In this season many people start a new lifestyle. Is there something you have recently started or are thinking of starting?

Go to a cafe with a nice atmosphere.

What do you imagine when you hear the word spring?

Flowers.

MESSAGE メッセージ

MEN’S NON-NO readers, my favorite seasons are spring and autumn, and spring has just arrived. It will be warmer from now on, so please go out and enjoy when the weather is nice. The temperature can still fluctuate a lot, so be sure to bring your outerwear with you when you go out. Be careful not to catch a cold. Please continue to give MEN’S NON-NO your love. And please give lots of love to our new album “Glitch Mode” too.

The lead song “Glitch Mode” carries a unique idea that “compares the notion of a heart experiencing too much love to a computer error”. What was your impression when you first heard the song, lyrics, and concept?

When I first listened to the song, I got the impression that it’s hip and cool! I thought it was a fresh attempt to show the new look of NCT DREAM.

In your performance on this song, what do you think is the coolest part, or the bit where you would like people to focus on?

I think it’s interesting how the keyword “buffering” was blended into the choreography. I also want you to check out mine and JENO’s performance in the dance break.

I think we succeeded in crafting a performance that is faithful to the overall concept!

This question is associated with the concept of this project’s “tech” mood! Within yourself, what parts do you think are high-tech, and on the contrary, what do you think of yourself as analog?

I’m not good with technology, so I think I’m analog. I don’t have much interest in machines, so I think I naturally gravitate away from that stuff.

Have you had any recent events that made you think, “I bugged out like a computer!”

There was a word that no one could remember when I was chatting with the members the other day. That felt like a bug to me.

When do you feel like “This is something I can definitely do this correctly, and I am confident that I will not fail!”?

No matter what I do, I don’t think I will fail.

What technology can you not live without?

My smartphone. I use the memo app to write or record the ideas that come to my mind. I think that you can absorb knowledge from influential people all over the world through smartphones and learn more about various fields.

about FASHION

If you’re getting ready to go out with a lot of energy and a fashionable look during the spring, what kind of clothes do you want to wear and where do you want to go?

A cardigan.
