K-Pop boy band, NCT Dream is set to make a comeback with its seven original members, including original member Mark Lee, with a track titled "Hot Sauce."
Lee left the group in December 2018 following the release of the group's single, "We Go Up," under the rotational system where members left the group after turning 20 years old.
However, NCT Dream's agency, SM Entertainment, changed its rotational system last April, when the group released its fourth mini-album, "Reload."
With "Hot Sauce," NCT Dream will be making its first comeback in 2021 with Lee, Renjun, Jeno, Haechan, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung as part of the album. Read on to learn more about "Hot Sauce."
