"Greetings, this is SM Entertainment.
NCT Dream will freshly rearrange forthcoming promotions for albums and team schemes.
Firstly, following the initial launch of the new album by NCT Dream on April 29, after all those album campaigns, the structure of members graduating after being 20-year-old will be changed. The existing members will not graduate, and the seven other members would conduct events in a configuration such as NCT U with the team name NCT Dream including original member Mark.
Also, NCT Dream's Renjun, Jeno, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung will participate as members of new NCT teams to be introduced in the future based on the developments of their activities and will work out global promotional activities.
We extend our sincere appreciation to the fans who showed tremendous support for NCT Dream, and we hope for constant love and affection for the NCT Dream and its members.
Thank you very much."
