The first studio album of NCT Dream sold over 2 million units, according to label SM Entertainment on Wednesday.
The album, titled “Hot Sauce,” surpassed 1-million-unit sales mark in a week since it came out on May 10 and reached 2 million in 16 days, and about 300,000 units more than the pre-order.
The LP hit No. 1 spot on iTunes top albums chart in 37 regions and topped Oricon’s weekly album chart and Billboard Japan’s top sales album chart a well. With same-titled focus track, the boy band nabbed four trophies from last week’s television music chart shows in Korea.
After winning the first trophy, the band thanked their fans with a video clip saying: “This is the first time we’re coming in first place since we returned as a septet, and we’re extremely happy.” Mark returned as a member of the boy band since he left in 2018 following the now-removed age rule of the NCT subunit.
