Mark Lee *insert crying emoji or pout emoji here*
On July 25, 2022, SM Entertainment released an official statement saying that NCT’s Mark tested positive for COVID-19. Because of this, he will be unable to join NCT DREAM in the upcoming “THE DREAM SHOW 2: In A DREAM” from July 29 to 31.
SM Entertainment’s statement is as follows:
“Hello, this is SM Entertainment.
NCT’s Mark was diagnosed with COVID-19 today.
Mark felt abnormal symptoms this morning, so he immediately underwent a rapid antigen test and was confirmed to have COVID-19. Mark previously received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine4. He has immediately halted all activities and is self-isolating and getting treated at home in accordance with the guidelines of the government health authorities.
As a result, NCT DREAM’s second solo concert “THE DREAM SHOW 2: In A DREAM,” which is scheduled for July 29 to 31, will be held with six members excluding Mark, so we ask for your understanding.
Our agency will strictly adhere to the instructions of health authorities, and we will consider our artist’s health and safety our top priority as we do our utmost to help him focus entirely on his recovery.
NCTzens are rightfully dismayed and saddened by the news, especially after knowing how much the NCT DREAM members have been waiting for their solo concert—when they’ve finally reunited as 7 after their first concert only having 6 members.
Knowing how Mark would almost always apologize even when things aren’t going their way, NCTzens decided to send all of their assuring messages on social media and to his Lysn Bubble chat. The hashtag, #DontFeelSorryMarkLee and #GetWellSoonMark immediately trended on social media.
It isn’t and will never be your fault
