When asked if they would like to travel somewhere during the breaks of their world tour, Jaemin said, “Rather than a trip, we want to gather as a whole group and share talks”, boasting about their extraordinary friendship.

NCT DREAM took the stage and gave their acceptance speech for Best Album. Leader Mark said, “I want to thank so many people. First of all, I’m grateful to have the six members with me. We will work harder together to become better singers and a greater team to achieve many things in the future. We want to thank our SM staff and most importantly, our fans NCTzens. We have you and we can do everything”. Haechan added, “Every time we release an album, we always want to prepare it for you all as a gift with our gratitude. Thankfully, we even received a big award. We still have a long way to go, and you will be with us, right? Please continue to support NCT DREAM”, expressing his affection for global fans.

CIX openly explained the rumors of bullying and ostracism of Bae Jin-young. Previously, in a video of CIX’s European tour held last month, when Bae Jin-young spoke, some fans were caught chanting other members’ names or throwing water buckets, raising the ‘Bae Jin-young being bullied rumor’. In particular, a video of a CIX member joking in a personal interview, “I will use Bae Jin-young as a meat shield in case of a zombie incident”, further strengthened her. “Bae Jin-young bullying theory”.


But this was untrue. C9 Entertainment, the agency, refuted, saying, “We confirmed the facts with all the people who participated in the tour, and this is also not true at all, and they are spreading false facts without any evidence in this regard.”

In addition, the company posted a non-edited video of the performance in question, saying, “We tried to deliver facts that can be directly checked with the eyes rather than the position by posting false information that is being distributed. We will file a civil and criminal lawsuit against the audience who maliciously edited and distributed the video,” he said.

Since then, CIX members have never clarified it in public, but when CIX received the ‘Post Generation Award’ trophy at the ‘Hanteo Music Awards’ on the 11th, they mentioned ‘Bae Jin-young being bullied’ as their acceptance speech. On this day, CIX said, “We are really good. We are friends who are running towards one dream. We would be grateful if you would give us a lot of interest.”
