As the lead dancer and lead rapper of NCT DREAM, Jaemin has more than proven his talent. He has great stage presence and his warm personality make him very charismatic as an artist. However, even in a group as big as NCT (with its 23 members), Jaemin’s visuals are a notable standout. Although fans will always love him most for his caring nature, Jaemin has proved on more than one occasion that his visuals alone make him leading man material.
Here are 11 times Jaemin proved just why he deserves the title of visual center of NCT DREAM.
1. When we got this legendary “Boom” fancam from the 2019 SBS Music Awards
“Boom” was an iconic NCT DREAM era period. But Jaemin really came into his own with this comeback, and his stages show it!
2. When he made hearts flutter in his red suit
There was not one look Jaemin did not nail during NCT’s Resonance comeback in 2020. But this red suit deserves special praise.
3. When he rocked his blue hair
Jaemin’s pastel blue hair color suited him amazingly well, no matter how he styled his hair!
4. When even masks couldn’t hide his god-tier visuals
There is just no hiding it.

5. Every time he does his iconic ‘ice cream’ line
If Jaemin came into his own during the “Boom” comeback, then his now iconic ‘ice cream’ line was probably the defining moment in which it happened.
6. When he took a turn as a model…
Jaemin’s turn as a model just hit different, exuding slightly more mature vibes…
…as well as melting hearts alongside his special partner.
7. When he stole the show in “Hot Sauce”
“Hot Sauce” was a big moment for NCT DREAM, and Jaemin truly stepped up with his dark hair…
…and dark eyeliner.
8. When he blessed fans with this iconic “Make A Wish” fancam
There is a reason why this fancam is so popular…

…and it’s partly because silver-haired Jaemin was something else altogether.
9. When his pink hair reigned supreme
Jaemin may have stunned with his blue and silver hair, but pink-haired Jaemin is easily also one of his most memorable eras.
10. When he looked even better in unfiltered pictures
Jaemin most definitely does not need a filter for his visuals to shine.

11. When he served looks during every second of this legendary fancam
Jaemin clearly did not come to play with this look.
