NCT Dream is coming back with their highly anticipated first full album 맛 (Hot Sauce) as was announced on their social media accounts earlier today. 

The septet is a subunit under SM Entertainment’s boy group NCT consisting of members Mark, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Jisung, and Chenle. They debuted on August 24, 2016, with the single “Chewing Gum” and have since received positive critical acclaim for their music and concepts. It’s worth noting that they were also the first NCT unit to get a music show win on SBS MTV’s The Show on February 14, 2017, during promotions for their first comeback and EP, My First & Last.

NCT Dream initially had a graduation system where the members who turn 21 in Korean age would graduate to other units of NCT. Dream’s eldest member, Mark Lee did graduate in January 2019 and did not promote with the group for the rest of that year. However, due to the fandom’s insistence for all seven members to be in the lineup, it was announced last year that the graduation system would end. Mark returned to NCT Dream, which became a fixed unit under the NCT brand.


NCT Dream’s full album was much awaited by fans for a while now and the reactions are in.
