NCT‘s Mark and Haechan have been insanely busy recently as members of both NCT 127 and NCT DREAM, and their schedules have caused a lot of concern to both fans and their members.
During NCT 127’s recent show Fill It Up, the members got real about the difficulties they have faced while preparing for their latest comeback, 2 Baddies.
Yet, leader Taeyong also emphasized that while the comeback has been hard for everyone, it has definitely been harder for Mark and Haechan.
After all, while preparing for 2 Baddies, they also had to prepare for NCT DREAM’s concert THE DREAM SHOW 2, which proved to be one of the biggest concerts of the year. And they still have plenty of grueling activities scheduled for both units for the rest of the year.
mark and haechan literally just did 4 concerts in the span of 12 days (neocity manila, tds2, 2 baddies showcase) and now they have 2 baddies promotions, nct 127 repackage promotions, 3 more neocity shows, and 5 tds2 japan shows left for them to complete within the next 3 months..

For this reason, their fellow NCT DREAM member Chenle also expressed some serious concern over the toll that all this work has been taking on them…
chenle said mark and haechan has to go around to both units and they are really tired ☹️ and he said in this situation he doesn’t expect more from them.. but when they came back from the philippines concert they had the same ambition and passion as them despite how tired they are

Now, after previously noticing something on Mark and Haechan’s arms, a fan asked Mark about it at NCT 127’s recent fansign. He admitted that, in fact, both he and Haechan had had to get an IV drip recently.

Fans were upset to find out about this, especially since Mark and Haechan’s health has been a serious cause of concern for their own members for some time.
Now, worried NCTzens are calling out SM Entertainment for failing to protect its artists’ health and for overburdening them with such punishing schedules.
mark said he got an iv drip together with haechan and that’s not okay at all. sm need to manage their schedules properly. theres no reason for sm to work mahae so damn hard. please care of your own artists too remember they’re all a human and not a robot.

Seeing as Mark and Haechan still have a lot of activities left to complete this year, including performances for both units (NCT 127 will soon embark on the North American leg of their world tour), fans are demanding that the company allow them a proper period of rest, emphasizing that their health is more important than their schedule.
Hopefully, Mark and Haechan’s management will take this into account and make sure that the members are given the time they need to recover. In the meantime, NCTzens are continuing to express their wholehearted support for both members!
