최강 틴에이저팀 NCT DREAM, 두 번째 미니앨범 ‘We Go Up’ 9월 3일 발매!
타이틀 곡 ‘We Go Up’으로 쿨하고 세련된 매력 선사!
최강 틴에이저팀 NCT DREAM의 두 번째 미니앨범 ‘We Go Up’이 9월 3일 발매된다.
이번 앨범은 NCT의 10대 청소년 연합팀 NCT DREAM의 다채로운 음악 색깔을 만끽할 수 있는 총 6트랙으로 구성되어 있어 글로벌 음악 팬들의 뜨거운 관심이 기대된다.
특히, 타이틀 곡 ‘We Go Up’은 NCT DREAM의 새로운 스테이지를 향한 열정을 담은 어반 힙합곡으로, NCT DREAM은 지난 3월 초대형 프로젝트 ‘NCT 2018’을 통해 패기 넘치는 10대의 모습으로 변신한 ‘GO’로 좋은 반응을 얻은 데 이어 한층 쿨하고 세련된 면모를 보여줄 계획이어서 시선을 사로잡을 전망이다.
더불어 NCT DREAM은 데뷔곡 ‘Chewing Gum’부터 ‘마지막 첫사랑 (My First and Last)’, ‘We Young’, ‘GO’ 등 매 음악마다 성장과 변신을 거듭하며 다채로운 매력을 선사, 각종 음악차트 및 음악방송 1위는 물론, 중국 최대 음악 시상식 중 하나인 ‘제 5회 인위에V차트 어워즈’에 ‘최고 잠재력 그룹상’을 수상하는 등 최강 틴에이저팀다운 활약을 펼치고 있는 만큼, 이번 앨범을 통해 보여줄 새로운 모습이 더욱 기대를 모은다.

September 10, 2018
Time flies. It's hard to believe that NCT Dream is already two years old. I still remember how I was all excited while waiting for Chewing Gum to be released, and the young and adorable boys in the music video just seem like yesterday to me. Go from NCT 2018 Empathy marked the beginning of the group's transformation from the cute and energetic boys in We Young to chic and swaggy teens. Now the teenage subunit returns with the brand new hip-hop-style record We Go Up!
Written by Kenzie and Mark, urban hip-hop track We Go Up (Track 1) serves as the title track for this album. The tempo, hooks and roaring and bell sounds make the whole song more addictive. The song's lyrics, in short, say "Let the past become our power to move forward and proceed to a wider stage." Perhaps We Go Up would be the song that best describes and represents NCT Dream – powerful youths striving to go up and always be wild and free.
The most special thing about this song is that the lyrics mention their debut track Chewing Gum. During their debut era, they rode hoverboards while performing the song; and in Mark's part in the first verse, he raps "we danced on the boards with rollers." Jeno also sings, "That sweet bubble gum is chewed up now." I also looked up the instrumental version of this song online, and Mark amazes me with his ad-libs in the music.
Mark expresses his thoughts on his graduation from NCT Dream in Dear DREAM (Track 5). He worked as the main lyricist, along with members Jeno, Jae Min and Ji Sung, who took part in writing lyrics for the first time. The song is a bit melancholic as the members tell Mark "Don't forget about each other," "We will always be with you, you must know that," and "I'll be your home." I appreciate the great improvement in rapping shown by Jeno, Jae Min and Ji Sung in the above two songs. Mark also shares his mind: "But I don't want this to sound like we're about to depart. If I ever get lost, though I would not want to show it obviously, Imma call back." As a huge OT7 fan, I'm in happy tears over how they show support and rely on each other. This might sound cringy, but I'm sure their friendship will still go strong even if they aren't in the same unit.
Let's not forget all the "Beautiful Times" Mark had with the other members while promoting in NCT Dream! Pop number "Beautiful Times" (Track 3) is about waving goodbye to a longtime friend and hoping that he'll smile while recalling all the good memories of them in the future. Although this song is written in a slightly rhythmic and uptempo way, "Beautiful Time" is not a joyful song at all. It makes you feel faintly upset and down because of the story behind it, especially near the end of the song when Mark chants "Remember, I'm with you!" Perhaps this is also a way to comfort fans and to tell them not to be too sad about Mark's departure.
Retro R&B track 1, 2, 3 (Track 2) conveys the hope that one's love can last forever like a photograph. The track is produced by Grammy-winning producing team The Stereotypes and composer August Rigo, who previously penned NCT Dream's first album title track "My First and My Last."
We Go Up is a perfect wrap-up of Mark's journey as a NCT Dream member. The album is a combination of trendy music styles and retro old-school elements. Moreover, from 1, 2, 3 to "Beautiful Time" to Dear DREAM, all the songs in We Go Up can relate to Mark's graduation and their thoughts. "Noona fans" like me always have contradictory feelings about being proud to see them grow up while also not wanting them to grow up too fast at the same time. Such a strange feeling, isn't it? Looking forward to the day when the Dream members gather for a new subunit again!
