NCT Dream will finally be releasing their first full-length album as a seven-piece group this May. At Midnight KST on April 12, NCT Dream officially announced that they would be making their return next month with their first-ever studio album, ‘Hot Sauce’. It will be their first comeback since 2018’s ‘We Go Up’ to include original member Mark Lee, who “graduated” from the group at the end of the same year.
Release Date For NCT Dreams new Album ‘HOT SAUCE’
NCT Dream shared an intriguing teaser image for the upcoming album, which drops on May 10. This will be the group’s first comeback in nearly five years. The group took to their social media handles to drop the first teaser image for Hot Sauce. The image is a bright and vibrant one, with animated colors like red, orange, green and blue. We can see a member sitting, his face covered with giant blue-colored pepper! The entire set up looks like something straight out of a coloring book. The original Korean album is also titled Taste (Hot Sauce).
For those uninitiated, Mark was previously announced to have graduated from the group back in 2018. This was due to the team’s age-limited system. Given the system, 4 other members, Renjun, Haechan, Jaemin and Jeno would have graduated last year too. However, SM Entertainment announced a change in the system to keep the group fixed rather than have a rotation as originally planned. Mark was then announced to have rejoined the group, much to the delight of the fans. Hot Sauce releases on May 10 KST.
Last month, it was confirmed by SM Entertainment that the group would be making a comeback with all seven original members. Korean-Canadian rapper and vocalist, Mark Lee, originally left NCT Dream upon turning 20 in 2018, as per the unit’s rotational graduation system.
The agency later removed the system last April, opting to have NCT Dream become a fixed group that included all seven original members. Laster that year, NCT Dream, including Lee, contributed the track ‘Déjà Vu’ to the album ‘NCT 2020 Resonance’ by their 23-member parent group NCT.

Both the singers emanated beautiful charms with a dreamy look on their faces. For Moon Sujin, the long nails and her tattooed shoulder exposed with a choker in the background of what looks like an art installation and maybe even a moon and asteroids, she looks pretty charming. The background especially adds more to the curiosity of what the song would actually mean. NCT Taeil’s solo teaser was also released, where he gives a chic look in leather pants and embroidered jacket, all black, with a fancy necklace. His teaser is in contrast to Moon Sunjin’s, as Taeil is standing in the backdrop of a red curtain, creating a complete contrast and oozing a different vibe altogether.
