The hashtag #prayformark was trending on Twitter as K-pop fans descended on Twitter in anticipation of Dispatch’s annual reveal of the Korean artist’s dating life. Dispatch, which is known for exposing K-pop singers’ dating scandals every year on New Year’s Day, is said to be releasing information about NCT’s vocalist and rapper Mark Lee, hence the hashtag.
Rain and Kim Tae Hee, Lee Seung Gi and YoonA of Girls’ Generation, ‘Squid Game’ star Lee Jung Jae and divorced heiress Im Se Ryung, and EXO’s Kai and BLACKPINK’s Jennie, to name a few, have all been featured on Dispatch in recent years. Korean fans have branded the publication the equivalent of TMZ on multiple occasions. After it was suggested that Twitter might drop the beans about NCT’s singer Lee this year, users flocked to the site.
Mark Lee of NCT has made news in the past for his relationship speculations. According to KPopStarz, the hip-hop musician was previously speculated to be dating Red Velvet member Wendy since 2014. Former Gugudan and I.O.I member Mina were also linked to Mark Lee. They were students at the School of Performing Arts (SOPA) and, oddly, they were both born in the same year, which fueled the speculations. They’ve also been named Music Core MCs.
Mark Lee’s current dating status is unknown, however, he is said to be single. He has also kept his admirers in the dark about his personal life. NCT 127, NCT Dream, and SuperM are presently occupying the singer’s time.
