10+ K-Pop Idols Who Did NCT DREAM Renjun’s Viral “Beatbox” Wink Challenge

NCT DREAM have a lot of friends on this list, and they did their best!

NCTzens have been proud of NCT DREAM‘s Renjun during the group’s “Beatbox” comeback so far, and rightfully so. Renjun is responsible for creating the “Beatbox” ‘wink challenge,’ which went viral prior to the release of the album and reportedly even became one of NCT DREAM’s most played videos on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. As a result, Renjun is now being referred to as NCT DREAM’s master trendsetter…

…and, of course, as the wink king.

Renjun’s wink challenge has been so popular that multiple K-Pop idols have taken part in it (to varying degrees of success). Here are the 10+ idols who did (or attempted to do) Renjun’s viral “Beatbox” wink challenge!


1. ENHYPEN’s Jungwon

Jungwon gave it a great shot while talking with a fan on a fancall.

2. JUST B’s Sangwoo

Sangwoo was also asked to give the challenge a try while on a fancall.

3. Kep1er’s Chaehyun, Yeseo, and Yujin

Chilling on live stream, the girls had a look at the challenge and winked their best.

4. DKZ’s Giseok

Giseok had some fun with it. He couldn’t help laughing as he adorably struggled to keep up with the tricky wink choreography.

5. SEVENTEEN’s Jeonghan

Jeonghan and his SEVENTEEN members not only introduced NCT DREAM’s “Beatbox” in the best way…

…but fans also had a laugh when he ‘introduced “Beatbox” into ‘Caratland.’

6. CLASS:y’s Hong Hyeju

Hong Hyeju managed to pull it off! While her attempt was not completely perfect, it was certainly impressive, especially given she likely didn’t have much time to prepare.

7. CLASS:y’s Hyungseo

Hyungseo also gave it a shot, and looked cute while she was at it!


Seeing as he’s good friends with Renjun, Chenle and other Chinese members of NCT, Jun was bound to do Renjun’s wink challenge.

In fact, he did NCT DREAM’s other “Beatbox” challenge too!

9. aespa’s Winter

Winter and Karina have both proven they are total fans of label-mates NCT DREAM. It should be no surprise then that Winter totally nailed the challenge!

10. Aespa’s NingNing

While NingNing takes the prize for cutest confused face, what we really want to know is what her bestie Chenle had to say about her failing to get it all right.

11. WayV’s Xiaojun

Xiaojun has not attempted the full challenge yet, but his attempt to wink like Renjun, whom he’s good friends with, is totally save-worthy.

Bonus: NCT DREAM’s Jeno and Jaemin

While Jaemin did it seemingly effortlessly…
