Boasting a youthful and playful spirit, the single and the group have gotten mixed reviews from online fans, some of whom have expressed discomfort with the young age of the members.
The three NCT subunits include members from various countries, including Korea, China, Japan and the US.
After its first television appearance on Mnet’s music program “M Countdown” on Aug. 25, NCT Dream will release “Chewing Gum” on local music platforms on Aug. 27.
