NCT Dream Variety Show Appearances

(Updated May 2020)

This is a list of various videos featuring several or all members of NCT Dream: short YouTube videos, variety shows, reality shows, etc. (Radio broadcasts are not usually included.) This is not a comprehensive list of every show or segment that NCT Dream has ever appeared on. They’re mostly videos that I’ve seen, that I find entertaining, and/or that I think are helpful to get to know the group.

NCT actually has a YouTube channel where they regularly post videos for all of NCT’s members and units. There are seriously TONS of videos, and I honestly can’t put them all here. I’ve chosen mostly videos that coincide with a comeback. If you want to see any other videos featuring the NCT Dream members, go explore this channel (채널 NCT DAILY). Most – if not all – of the videos have English subs!

IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs – have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites.  So unfortunately, I cannot watch most of these videos or verify the links anymore.  This also means I cannot add as many videos as before because they simply are not available in my region.  I’m sorry if you click on something and it’s no longer there, but there’s not really any way for me to check! – Katherine

NOTE: None of these videos are mine. They belong to their respective networks or channels. Any subtitles are either done by fans or the television network distributing the show.

NOTE: This aired a week before their comeback, and Haechan is absent.

Episode 1

Introductions, and rating the idols’ “variety heights” (which is them wearing headbands with painted hearts, then running and jumping at a wall and try to make the highest mark… I think it’s just easier if you watch it hahaha)

Episode 2

The idols’ “vision test” (answering various trivia questions and math problems) and “hearing test” (listening to a random sound or song and trying to guess what it is)

Episode 3

“Agility Test” – throwing a stuffed animal and copying the position that it lands in.

Episode 4

Convenience store snack break, teamwork game (it’s kind of like a telephone game where you have to guess the word, but there’s drawing involved – )

There aren’t any games in this episode, it’s mostly just them hanging out and being themselves.

The group breaks into teams and plays the airplane game. Then, one team member throws darts at balloons while being carried by his teammate.

Episode 3

The teams play “Cola Pong” with one member giving a piggyback to the other. Then, it’s an individual mission as the group plays a classic arcade racing game.
