On Tuesday night, audiences around the United States watching the most recent episode of the CBS crime procedural NCIS: New Orleans were in for a surprise when four members of K-pop boy band NCT Dream were mentioned.
The fifth-season episode featured Necar Zadegan’s character Hannah Khoury and Vanessa Ferlito’s character Tammy Gregorio talking to a student about a murder investigation, and during the conversation Khoury surprised Gregorio with her knowledge of K-pop.
“Renjun, Jeno, or Chenle: Who’s best?” asked Khoury suddenly while trying to get information from the student. The young woman responded, “None of them. It’s Mark, obviously.” All four are part of 21 Under 21 group NCT Dream and SM Entertainment's larger NCT group, and Mark is also part of the NCT 127 and NCT U teams.
