NCT Dream have released a vibrant and whimsical video for ‘Hot Sauce’, the title track of their newly released full-length album.
In the clip, the K-pop group run a taqueria that serves up plates of tacos and other Mexican-inspired dishes. Soon, they get addicted to a special “hot sauce” and begin dousing the spicy dressing all over their food.
“Hot sauce deeply dip that eh / You follow me and twist that eh / Hot sauce when it burns ooh / Pick as you like ma dish,” they chant on the energetic chorus.
On April 12, NCT Dream confirmed that they would be making their return in May with original member Mark, who “graduated” from the group at the end of 2018.

In March, 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. Later that year, NCT Dream, including Lee, contributed the track ‘Déjà Vu’ to the album ‘NCT 2020 Resonance’ by their 23-member parent group NCT.
‘Hot Sauce’ will be the group’s first comeback since their 4th mini-album, ‘Reload’, dropped last April. Upon its release, it topped the chart of the South Korean streaming service Melon, as well as the iTunes Charts in 49 countries.
Earlier this year, NCT member and leader Taeyong launched his very own SoundCloud account with a new self-composed song called ‘Dark Clouds’. The K-pop idol composed the song with producer Royal Dive, who he also worked with for his SM Station Season 3 song ‘Long Flight’.
