NCT Dream announces ‘Dream Show 2’ concert at Olympic Stadium, fans flex 'glow up'
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: With the new Covid-19 outbreak taking down two NCT Dream members, fans were upset when SM Entertainment canceled the boy group’s first full solo concert. However, when one door closes, another opens. NCT Dream has gone from canceling their 20k-seat concert venue to resuming it at the iconic Olympic Stadium. After witnessing fans’ disappointment with some even flocking to the old venue on the day of the canceled concert, SM announced on August 10 that ‘The Dream Show 2’ would take place at the Olympic Stadium in Jamsil, Seoul on September 8 and 9 with all seven members.
‘The Dream Show 2’ has led to a rollercoaster of emotions among fans and NCT Dream themselves. Despite debuting in 2016, it was going to be the group’s first full group concert since member Mark Lee had temporarily left in 2019 when NCT Dream had their first concert ‘The Dream Show’. Unfortunately, days before the 2022 concert, Mark ended up testing positive. SM had shared that the concert would go on without him which led to many getting a horrible deja vu as the first concert had also similarly taken place without Mark. However, a second member, Renjun also got Covid-19 a day before the concert which led to it getting canceled.
1.5 million try to buy tickets for NCT Dream's 20k-seat concert, fans say 'that's crazy'
IU the first female idol to have Olympic Stadium concert, fans say 'legend making history'
NCT Dream becomes 7th group to perform at Olympic Stadium
NCT Dream fans were angry with SM when the label shared that they would be cancleing ‘The Dream Show 2’ which would have taken place at the Sky Dome which has a seating capacity of 16k and a total of 20k including the standing area. It had been pretty historic as 1.5 million fans had logged in to try and buy tickets for the 20k-seat concert. And so, they requested SM not to cancel but simply postpone the concert.
But it looks like the label had other plans for canceling the Sky Dome concert. NCT Dream becomes the seventh K-pop group in history to perform at the huge Olympic Stadium. They are also the fifth and youngest SM artist to perform at the venue. In fact, just days ago, IU, the K-pop soloist made history by becoming the first female idol to announce her concert at the Olympic Stadium. The 70k-seat venue is reserved only for important events and only four male singers and six K-pop boy groups including BTS and EXO have performed there.
We have also had only a couple of international stars like Michael Jackson, Metallica and Lady Gaga use the venue as their Korean stop for their world tours. NCT Dream becomes the next music act to perform on September 8 and 9 with reservations for the fanclub tickets launching on August 17 while general sales will begin on August 24.
Fans are impressed as NCT Dream will be performing at more than thrice the size of their canceled venue. One NCTzen tweeted, “The glow ups.” Another was proud, “NCT DREAM “The Dream Show 2: In A DREAM” literally went from 16k capacity to 60k+ capacity 🤩💚 if there is a will, there is a way!!!! 😭 HUHUHU ONLY YHE BEST FOR OUR 7DREAM.” One fan wrote, “Uri 7dream superstars.” Another commented, “I have literally nvr been more proud truly deserved.” One was shocked, “7dream gonna witness a sight like this soon at jamsil holy f**k.”
