NCT Dream is preparing for a comeback, and this time Mark is going to join them. Here’s what we know about this much-anticipated comeback. On March 23, SPOTV News reported that the group is in the final stages of preparation for an April comeback.
In response, SM Entertainment confirmed, “NCT DREAM is preparing a new album aimed for an April release.”
This will be NCT DREAM’s first album in a year since “Reload” in April 2020 and their first with Mark in more than two years since “We Go Up” in September 2018. Mark previously graduated from the group, but it was announced last year that together with Mark again, the seven members will carry out activities in a format like NCT U with the team name NCT DREAM.
Original member Mark Lee had initially graduated from the boyband in 2018 and joined NCT 127, as is a tradition in NCT- Neo Culture Technology. However, the label SM later removed the system in April of last year in favor of a fixed group consisting of the boyband’s seven original members. Later in 2020, NCT Dream, including Lee, contributed the song ‘Déjà Vu’ to ‘NCT 2020 Resonance’, the second studio album of the boyband’s 23-member parent group NCT.
Last year, NCT Dream released their fourth mini-album, ‘Reload’. The project peaked at number one on the South Korean Gaon Album Chart and became their highest-selling record, with over 690,000 sold in the East Asian country alone.
Besides his activities with NCT Dream, Lee is also a member of K-pop supergroup SuperM. The boyband – also comprising SHINee’s Taemin, EXO’s Baekhyun and Kai, and NCT’s Lucas, Ten and Taeyong – released their debut album ‘Super One’ last September.
