The NCT members still idolize other celebrities despite the status they now have. It may not be Drake himself, but his father is enough for the K-pop idols to get starstruck. The NCT members had a very cute reaction when they recently bumped into Drizzy's dad at the airport in Los Angeles, California.

The members of NCT 127 ran into Drake's dad, Dennis Graham, at the airport, and the boys couldn't help but ask to have a photo with him. In the images of the group circulating online, the young idols were seen with wide eyes upon seeing Graham.

Apparently, the boys also Googled Drake's dad to make sure it is actually the Views hitmaker's father before they approached him and asked for a photo with them. It was a memorable time for the K-pop singers, and many netizens also find the NCT moment with Graham cute and adorable. One fan noted how iconic the scene, in which NCT fans were taking pictures of their K-pop idols while they are fanboying and asking to take pictures of someone they admire, is.

"Omfg they are so cute. I just want to explode[sic] the earth. Look at Haechan's face. That's probably me if I unintentionally run into NCT omg," another fan commented.

Graham is a familiar face in Drake's circle. The Canadian rapper often shares photos of his father on his social media accounts, and he is also a recognizable figure in the Hotline Bling singer's gigs. Drizzy (whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham) has been very vocal about giving credit to his family for his success. He even mentioned his father in the very first track of his debut studio album.

But, Graham is more than just Drake's dad. He is also a musician who taught himself to play the guitar, piano, and drums when he was young. He played the drums during his teen years before he moved to Canada where he Drake's mother.

In late 2016, Graham released a single titled "Kinda Crazy," and its music video showed off his smooth dance moves. He was also featured in a Virginia Black whiskey commercial in 2017 which featured the tagline of "The Realest Dude Ever." So, NCT may have been starstruck by Graham not just because he is Drake's dad but, more importantly, he is Dennis Graham.

Meanwhile, NCT had recently been named the first-ever K-pop group who peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart because of their presence in social media. The band also recently had a V Live broadcast in which they recorded 140 million views and over 500 million hearts.
