NCT‘s Mark Lee only recently made an Instagram, and is already stunning NCTzens with not only photos of himself but examples of what he called “late night scribbles.”

Late night scribbling

Good night

To me, these two words feel like the vast sky

Darkness, but not hollow

Black but not bitter

Far but close enough to wonder

Is it reachable?

Can feelings get so real, that they become tangible?

A spacious bed for me and my thoughts to

sleep in

Head above my pillow and a question above my head

Insomnia feel like drought because all I do is

look up, thinking

Will it ever, ever come?

 

However, these “scribbles” are more than they seem. Closer to lyrical poetry, Mark expresses his vulnerable side as he shares his late night thoughts on social media.

Will it ever, ever come?

The nights know me well

I was a frequent by-passer but now I am no

stranger

A boy who grew up living with sharks does

not need to be taught how to swim

It is more likely for swimming to come to him

naturally

I wasn’t told to write, but these nights made

it come to me naturally

Bare with me

Just some late-night scribbling haha.

 

Fellow NCT 127 member Doyoung echoed fan sentiments, commenting “Really good, Mark!” on his post.

But his incredible writing skills are of no surprise to NCTzens, as Mark has songwriting credits for over 40 songs in the past four years for SuperM, NCT U, NCT 127, NCT DREAM, and others. These songs include “Together At Home” from the Super One album, and “Pandora’s Box”, “Mad Dog”, and “Love Song” from the Neo Zone album.

Back in May 2020, Mark also paired up with fellow NCT 127 member Johnny to create “QTAH”, a rap track with a short music video produced and filmed by Johnny.

Mark has expressed in the past that he dreams of becoming an author, and hopes to one day write his own novel.

At just 21 years old, Mark continuously proves how multi-talented he is as a rapper, singer, dancer, songwriter, and more.
