NCT Dream Is Only K-Pop Artist To Make TIME Magazine’s 2018 List Of 25 Most Influential Teens
NCT Dream is the only K-pop artist included in TIME Magazine’s “25 Most Influential Teens of 2018”!
On December 7 local time, TIME Magazine published its annual list of the 25 most influential teenagers of the year. The list recognizes achievements “across numerous fields,” including those by young inventors, athletes, entertainers, and political activists.
Each year, TIME Magazine selects 25 names for the list based on “accolades,” “global impact through social media,” and “overall ability to drive news.”
NCT Dream, which TIME Magazine describes as “the youth subunit of umbrella group NCT,” was notably the only K-pop act on this year’s list. The publication highlighted the international success of the group’s latest mini album “We Go Up,” which peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s World Albums chart and topped iTunes Top Albums charts in 15 different countries.
TIME Magazine noted, “The group’s title tracks have followed a narrative of the stages of adolescence, transitioning from innocence to rebellion—and growth.”
Earlier this year, NCT Dream was also the only K-pop artist to make Billboard’s list of “21 Under 21 2018: Music’s Next Generation.”
Congratulations to NCT Dream!
