Huang Renjun (Chinese: 黄仁俊) , known professionally as Renjun (Hangul: 런쥔), is a Chinese-born singer and dancer based in Seoul, South Korea. He is one of the main vocalists of the NCT sub-unit NCT Dream, along with his group mates Haechan and Chenle. NCT Dream sings primarily in Korean, as well as Chinese versions of title tracks.
Renjun was born in Jilin, China, on March 23, 2000. He was cast at SM's Global Audition in Shenyang, China in 2015, traveling several hours from his home to attend the audition..

III. Debut with NCT Dream
On August 24, 2016, Renjun made his official debut as a member of NCT and its third sub-unit, NCT Dream, alongside Chenle and former SM Rookies Jeno, Haechan, Mark, Jaemin and Jisung with the debut single "Chewing Gum." The group had their first performance on M Countdown the next day. Dream was originally designed as a teenage boy group, with members graduating from the group once they reached adulthood (20 in Korean, 19 international age), although the graduation system was later eliminated.
Dream has a brighter, sunnier pop sound than the other sub-units, although it has an equal emphasis on powerful and intricate dance choreography.
