II. Background & Release
SM Station is a digital music project under SM Entertainment that involves solos or duets from members in existing SM groups, as well as opportunities for singers to experiment in other genres or collaborate with artists inside and outside of SM Entertainment. The project releases a number of singles digitally each year on digital platforms, including streaming audio like Spotify.
NCT Dream is a Korean boy group and a rotational sub-unit of NCT. NCT is unique among K-Pop groups due to the fact that the concept of NCT is an ever expanding group with "unlimited" members and is comprised of several individual subunits. NCT Dream was designed as a teenage boy group, with members graduating from the group once they reached adulthood (20 in Korean, 19 international age.) NCT Dream has a brighter, sunnier pop sound than the other sub-units, although it has an equal emphasis on powerful and intricate dance choreography.
The festive holiday song was described as a "more mature form" for the teenage group with a "bright and cheerful atmosphere." It is a reinterpretation of "Joy to the World," and several other Christmas songs. Member Jaemin was on a medical hiatus and did not participate. Member Mark co-wrote his raps.
