On May 5 at 12 AM KST, NCT Dream dropped “DREAMVERSE: Chapter 1,” a short music video for the R&B song, “Dive Into You,” from their upcoming 맛 (Hot Sauce) album.
The track video for “DREAMVERSE: Chapter 1” began with a short scene with Mark heading out of the cafe towards Jisung, who waited for him in the hallway. The two discussed a candle Mark received as a gift. After Jisung asked “Who gave it to you,” the scene closed, and the music for “Dive Into You” began. The scene switched to focus on Haechan, Renjun, Jaemin, Jisung, and Jeno, who were driving in a red car. The video ended how it started: with Jisung and Mark, and the others pulled up to the cafe in their car.
With the release of new content, fans were filled with joy and excitement.

Fans explored possible storylines behind the track music video.
Maybe that's also why Jisung was making a love potion on Cafe7Dream? https://t.co/sPGX2c6K0F

A Love Triangle
Some fans began theorizing who is behind the possible love triangle.
mark saying that renjun is jisung's first love and SO what if here renjun is actually jisung's first love but mark is renjun's first love… in this essay i will…. pic.twitter.com/FrtVArO6NT
— That friend (23) … 💗 (@koushiren) May 4, 2021
someone gave mark a scented candle, renjun loves scented candles and we all know renjun and jisung adore each other, therefore i conclude renjun completes the love triangle pic.twitter.com/KAmIGeD8bk

but if renjun is mark love interest, why were mark and haechan acting like a couple during the cafe 7 dream ??
