As NCT DREAM’s comeback date draws near, fans have been clamoring for spoilers to get a glimpse of what the group has in store. Chenle and Renjun responded to these requests in a manner that was both amusing and bewildering, sharing photos that sparked more questions than answers.

On his Instagram, Chenle posted a photo of his right foot, bruised and bandaged, captioning it with a coy “Spoiler 😏🤟🏽.” The post quickly attracted attention, including humorous responses from fellow NCT members Kun and Mark, who were just as puzzled by the peculiar teaser.

Days later, Jaemin did the same thing. He created an Instagram carousel comprising eight photos. The first was a photo of—you guessed it—his injured feet. These unusual teasers have added an air of mystery around their upcoming album, [DREAM( )SCAPE], set to drop on March 25. The title track “Smoothie” will be accompanied by five B-sides: “i cant feel anything,” “Box,” “Carat Cake,” “Unknown,” and “Breathing.”
