Unfortunately, this means that Mark must miss NCT DREAM’s 2nd solo concert, THE DREAM SHOW2 – In a DREAM. It is scheduled for July 29-31, and the remaining six members will perform without leader Mark.

This would have been NCT DREAM’s first concert with all seven members. NCT DREAM TOUR THE DREAM SHOW was NCT DREAM’s first solo group concert and included just six. The concert tour began in Seoul on November 16, 2019, and ended on February 3, 2020.

So, fans are especially heartbroken that Mark will be missing what would have been his first NCT DREAM concert while he is also the leader.

NCT DREAM has faced challenges a lot recently. During their comeback with “Glitch Mode,” Chenle suffered an ankle injury. During “Beatbox,” Haechan and Jaemin tested positive for COVID-19 after Jeno and Chenle.

Mark has also personally updated NCTzens on his condition via the Bubble app. He reassured them and asked for the continued support of NCT DREAM’s concert, but he was upset too.

So, NCTzens are sending well wishes to Mark during this time.

We, too, wish Mark a full and speedy recovery.
