After growing up together and facing many of the same struggles as members of two NCT units, it’s safe to say Mark and Haechan have a true sibling bond.
Their long history and shared experiences have often been the source of hilarious stories, many of them based on the two members’ famous bickering.

Haechan once even hilariously confessed that he often was afraid of being scolded by Mark, who is the leader of NCT DREAM.

Yet, despite their bickering, the two of them have proved to be the most wholesome besties. As such, they naturally have a special handshake together, like many of their other NCT members. But fans can’t stop laughing after seeing a now-deleted clip of Haechan accidentally forgetting how the handshake goes, especially because of Mark’s reaction.
In the behind-the-scenes footage of NCT 127‘s “2 Baddies” on Studio Choom, the members were entertaining themselves with some hilarious shenanigans, including leader Taeyong doing his best to distract the others by busting out his best moves.

But when the two of them attempted their special handshake, Haechan faltered and failed to remember how it ended.

And it led to plenty of amusement over the true chaotic friendship that Mark and Haechan share.

While some netizens were not altogether happy to see Mark “flipping Haechan off,” many NCTzens were happy to see this unfiltered side of Mark, especially because it says a lot about how genuine his bond is with Haechan.
we mostly sees mark’s other side of him being sweet and humble all the time but seeing him getting pissed off is just so hot pls if you get me

mark always showing his mean side to haechan… like that’s TRUE best friend friendship 😭 if y’all disagree you don’t have friends to begin with

Still, due to some backlash, Studio Choom has since reuploaded the video without the Mark and Haechan clip, despite the fact that the interaction didn’t really mean anything. After all, Mark and Haechan will always have the cutest…
