What better way to get people in the mood for the upcoming summer than with a cool, upbeat bop? We put our faith in NCT Dream for upbeat summer music! The SM Entertainment boy band NCT Dream returned with the repackaged album Beatbox, which includes a new title tune of the same name, following the success of their second studio album Glitch Mode, which topped numerous charts and sold over a million copies in its first week of release.
Since the days of bow ties, suspenders, and hoverboards from Chewing Gum, the Dreamies have come a long way. We have seen them develop from teen lovebirds to million-selling heartthrobs. By experimenting with yet another musical style, the musicians demonstrate their youthful adaptability and vigor.
The lads' energetic hip-hop dance song Beatbox has loud, catchy beatboxing that melds with a cheery melody to show off both their developed rap abilities and vocal capabilities. The song's mellow yet groovy vibes transport listeners back to the 1990s, and the music video is also replete with throwback details like Game Boy, cassette tapes, and record players. The NCT Dream members transform into college beauties wearing vibrant retro outfits who win our hearts with their free-spirited boyish charm. For a breakdown of their colorful, season-appropriate attire, keep reading!
Look #1: Retro Street Style

The other band members, who are all dressed in casual yet stylish streetwear with big, baggy designs, join the dancing throng as he drops a rhythm. The boys, who stand for Generation Z, update their vintage outfits with contemporary touches like bright colors, Y2K stripes, and bucket hats.

NCT Dream has never been afraid to experiment with vivid colors, as shown in We Go Up and Hello Future. The Beatbox music video maintains this trend with an explosion of vibrant colors. The Dreamies create outfits that express their dynamic energy through a collision of electrifying blue and bold amber. As they parade around the campus wearing jersey sweatshirts, color-block tops, and vintage sneakers, they become everyone's favorite school kids.
