NCT‘s Mark was the most recent guest on Dive Studios‘ Daebak Show, and during his epic hour-long episode, the NCT member opened up to host Eric Nam about his idol friendships, recent promotions with NCT U, current promotions with NCT 127, and more.
The two talented idols and friends caught up during their busy schedules as Eric takes on a 66-show world tour and Mark tackles Fact Check promotions with NCT 127.
NCT’s Mark was visiting Dive Studios as an NCT 127 member, but he’s also a member of NCT U, NCT DREAM, and SM Entertainment supergroup, SuperM. With his multi-group involvement, Mark stays incredibly busy with touring, promoting, recording, and more.
Eric noted how young Mark is for all he’s accomplished while acknowledging the NCT member’s promising future and unlimited potential at only 24 years old.
Eric wondered if Mark had ever experienced a moment when he felt like a “sunbae,” but the NCT member replied that “age doesn’t matter” to him.
While discussing how old they both feel, Mark’s memory was jogged, and he unexpectedly announced that he will only “dance hard” until he reaches 33 years old.
Eric hilariously replied that it was an “acceptable” age, pointing out that Mark has nine more years of “hardcore dancing” until he reaches 33.
Mark elaborated on the reason why he set an age limit for himself, saying he “wants to be remembered as someone who looked good [while] dancing.”
NCT is known for their impressive and physically demanding choreography, so it’s understandable that the members want to perform while they’re in their best shape. It seems Mark is hilariously prepared to preserve his peak idol image.
During the interview, Mark also opened up about his position as a main rapper, and how it differed from his initial expectations about being a K-Pop idol.
