[verse 1]

하고싶은 말이
There’s a lot

너무 많은데
that I wanted to say

내맘 내맘
That my heart my heart

전하지 못했죠
Couldn’t convey, right?

 

그댄 어떤 가요
What were you thinking then

혼자 있을 때
When you are alone

그땐 그땐
At that time, that time

내 생각 하나요
are you thinking about me?

 

[pre-chorus]

영원 토록 간직 하고 싶어서
I wanted to cherish you forever and ever

하얀 도화지를 물들여요
I will dye a white paper

그댈 비추는 저 별빛 보다 수 없이
More than the star light there can shine on you

가득 안고 싶은 맘인 걸요
I want to fully embrace you

 

[chorus]

However long the night

However long the night tonight

새벽에 끝이 안보여 도
even if I can’t see the break of dawn

 

However long the night

내일의 약속에 깊이 잠들 수 없어
I can’t sleep soundly before tomorrow’s meetup

오늘 밤은 유난히도 길다
Tonight is unusually long

 

[verse 2]

고이 접은 종이 배
A finely folded paper boat

빼곡히 채워 넣는 내 마음
With all of my heart poured into it

바람 곁에 띄우고 싶어
I want to fly with the wind

그에게 전해줄래
I want to let it know

 

Don’t be afraid

때론 비 바람이 불어도
Though it is sometimes rainy and windy

Don’t be afraid

변하지 않는 너와 나니까
Because you and me won’t change

 

[pre-chorus]

영원토록 간직 하고 싶어 서
I want to cherish you forever and ever

벽에 걸린 시겔 숨 겨 놨죠

저기 하늘 위의 별들보다 수 없이
There are countless stars in the sky over there

그댈 보고 싶은 맘인 걸요
I want to see you

 

[chorus]

However long the night

However long the night tonight

[bridge]

하늘 저 붉은 빛이 사라져 가도
Though the red light in the sky disappears

한 걸음 도 내게서 멀어지지마
Don’t go away from me, even just one step

그대와 두손 꼭 잡고 밤을 함께 걸으면
If we can spend the night walking together hand in hand

영원히 날 웃게 해줄래 oh
I will make you smile forever oh

 

[chorus]

However long the night

However long the night tonight

새벽에 끝이 안보여 도 (ah)

[TRANS] Dreamcatcher, three reasons for focusing on foreign countries

‘Progress and completion of the nightmare’… Dreamcatcher, three reasons for focusing on foreign countries

 

In Dreamcatchers’ ‘strong nightmare’, they are focusing on the attention of overseas fans.

 

The release of Dreamcatchers’ fourth mini album ‘The End of Nightmare’ is being flooded with analysis by reporters from leading overseas news outlets, including Billboard. At the same time, music fans from all over the world even added reviews, which became the foundation for Dreamcatchers’ new mini album to reach the fifth place on the iTunes worldwide chart.

 

What they are focusing on the most is Dreamcatchers’ stylish concept, which incorporates unique storytelling. Since their debut, they have been telling a story that includes the world of the ‘seven nightmares’ in their main theme ‘nightmare’.

 

From that appearance on, Dreamcatchers’ attempt was fresh. Inside this simple concept, individual stories are unraveling, freeing one’s ears from other idols, which is because their story is continuously expanding with every album. Together with that, they explained the reason for the entrance of the ‘nightmares’ in their first mini album ‘Prequel’, adding special strength to the narrative.

 

Following the title of Dreamcatchers’ fourth mini album ‘The End of Nightmare’, it is the release that will conclude their ‘nightmare’ story, receiving unusual interest because of this fact. Beyond the weakness of not being able to escape from the ‘nightmare’, it fuses resistance spirit and the willingness to lean and rely on each other to overcome it. This is the message that Dreamcatcher want to express with ‘PIRI’.

 

Dreamcatchers’ attractiveness does not end with their story. The material in their story is expressed in the right way through their flashy performances. Dreamcatcher challenged themselves – successfully every time – with powerful group dances reminiscent of boy groups and various time difference point dances, as well as the braveness of breaking the prejudice ‘you can’t see line formations in girl groups’, etc., and are achieving high results.

 

Dreamcatcher comes to perfection through ear-catching metal rock sound in harmony with their very own unique color. They seized the opportunity to make the meeting of an idol girl group and metal rock consistent, this freshness, which plays a role in captivating foreign fans beyond Korea. Dreamcatchers’ new song ‘PIRI’ is also putting a strong metal rock sound on the base of various sounds, receiving positive feedback like ‘[PIRI] embodies Dreamcatchers’ musical evolution’.

 

During the last two years, Dreamcatcher already successfully finished two world tours, touring Europe, the Americas etc. For ‘The End of Nightmare’, their first step is Asia. After their comeback activities, starting from March 20th, they plan to meet InSomnia up close, touring Jakarta (Indonesia), Singapore, Manila (Philippines), Japan and also Korea.

[TRANS] Genie Music Interview #PIRI

INTERVIEW Recording, Jacket, MV shooting behind the scenes interview

Q1. Dreamcatcher, you are having a comeback after almost 5 months, please greet the Genie Music family.

Dreamcatcher:*kiss* Dream of us! Hello, we are Dreamcatcher~❤ Genie Music family, how are you? We came back with our final nightmare story~

 

Q2. Since this fourth mini album’s name ‘The End of Nightmare’ indicates that this is your last nightmare story, it probably feels different. What kind of story does the album tell?

Yoohyeon: Yes, this album incorporates the ending to the nightmare story that we told since our debut. Dreamcatcher is inviting you all to never-ending, repeating nightmares.

 

Q3. The title song is called ‘PIRI’, what kind of song is it? Dreamcatchers’ choreography left a deep impression again, so please explain this song’s point dance.

Jiu: Our title song ‘PIRI’ displays modern peoples’ feelings of wanting to break free from the loneliness and anxiety of being left by oneself. In the special story, the matter of ‘PIRI’ adds to Dreamcatchers’ own SOS signal that we are sending.

Sua: For a point dance, we have a choreography where we follow [each other] with a time difference, as if bewitched by the flute’s sound, reminiscent of the Pied Piper¹~~

Siyeon: Yes, in the Pied Piper dance, Jiu is the piper!

 

Q4. This album contains 6 songs in total, which one is each member’s favorite and why?

Jiu: Choosing a favorite song for this album is harder than ever before. I really like all of them, I can’t choose a favorite!

Sua: My favorite song is ‘PIRI’~ All of the other songs are really, really good, too, but its refreshing sound immediately captured my heart.

Siyeon: My favorite song is ‘Daydream’! Since it is winter right now, I like that it is a song that feels dim and warm while listening.

Handong: For me, it is ‘Daydream’, too. When I listened to it, the calm and lyrical melody felt really healing.

Yoohyeon: I like ‘그리고 아무도 없었다’ [And I had nobody] best. Even before recording, in a state without lyrics, I really liked its sophisticated feeling,  and the lyrics ‘And I had nobody’ feel both very hypnotic and dim.

Dami: For me it is ‘Diamond’. During recording, it was a style of rap that I don’t usually do, so it was very difficult, but in the end, the recording turned out well.

Gahyeon: For me it is ‘Diamond’, too. It is the song we prepared for first, so I am attached to it.

 

Q5. This album comes in two versions, Stability and Instability. Do you have any memorable episodes from shooting each version?

Jiu: When we had our concept shooting, we used the concept of laying down while shooting, but my head was surrounded by grass and I got scared that it would get stuck in my hair, so I remember that our staff made a fuss about it for no reason and said “Carefully, carefully~”. At the concept shooting, I had a scene with the members in our stage outfits, and we had to stand by the window. One of the photographers went outside on that cold day to film us from outside, but when he talked, we couldn’t hear him well, so shooting while communicating with body language is one thing I remember.

Handong: That’s true. I couldn’t find the camera at first, because it was dark. The photographers worked very hard, thank you.

Sua: At the concept shooting when we filmed laying down on the floor, the floor was cold, so they spread out hot packs in the shape of a person, so it was a very warm and comfortable shooting~!ㅎㅎ Also I wanted to utilize the outfit for the shooting, so I kept turning round and round~

Siyeon: At the concept shooting, someone told me to show a bewitched expression, but it was the first time I tried [such a] passive feeling, so it was hard. When we filmed, my stage outfit had a long handkerchief running down from it. Cool pictures came out after we tried to film it the moment after I threw it. So it was fun to shoot in sync with the photographer.

Gahyeon: For me too, at the concept shooting, they said I had to remove power from my eyes to look pure, but even when I did, the photographers and the staff kept telling me that I looked scared. I think that shooting was the most difficult.

Yoohyeon: For me it was when filming the concept in my stage outfit, too, it seemed like I could not walk around alone, because the red cloth that ran down it was very long. I kept stepping on it. I felt like a puppy chasing its own tail. hehe.

Dami: During the concept shooting, it was very hard [for me] to show the feeling of being seduced. Also I wore green lenses for the first time, so I was worried if I could pull it off, but I think it looks good, so I’m satisfied.

 

Q6. The music video for the title song ‘PIRI’ probably has a different atmosphere compared to your other music videos. Do you have any memorable episodes from filming it?

Jiu: I have a scene where I watch TV and then get surprised by seeing myself, but acting surprised is very awkward. Especially opening my mouth too much looked very awkward. The director said to me “Jiu-ya, that’s good~ Don’t open your mouth much~” while smiling, I remember that that released the tension a bit. haha

Sua: We always did the lipsyncing one by one before, but this time, for the first time, we tried two people at once with two cameras, and I thought “Oh~ This is a very new and good way”. Also, watching two members lipsync at the same time looked a lot like a competition, so it was pretty exciting. hehehe

Siyeon: When I first looked at the synopsis, it felt like a collection of several short horror movies, which I really liked. I have a scene where I sit on a ladder and I received a compliment for that, so I was happy!

 

Q7. You must have been busy with preparing for the comeback during the Lunar New Year holidays a few days ago. If you have goals or resolutions for the new year 2019, please talk about them.

Dami: I had time to see my family on Lunar New Year, so I returned home. I came back after gaining a lot of strength and want to be busy in various ways [this year].

Sua: I hope that everyone I love can spend this year healthily and happily. Everyone, please earn a lot while working less~ hehe

Siyeon: I want to try an OST! And I’m studying really diligently because I want you to hear my own compositions!

Gahyeon: I hope that this promotion will be meaningful one during which I meet Somnias more often, and I definitely want to get first place!

 

Q8. Lastly, please say some parting words to the Genie Music family.

Dreamcatcher: Genie Music family, today our album was released and both the title song ‘PIRI’ and the B-side tracks are all good, so please listen to them a lot and show a lot of love! Ah, and also, once again, we wish everyone a happy new year~! Until now, we have been Dreamcatcher. Thank you!

[TRANS] ‘The End of Nightmare’ description

Never ending ‘nightmare’ drawn by Dreamcatcher, fantasy ‘da capo’¹
Fourth mini album [The End of Nightmare]

The seven nightmares’ story that bewitched the world is coming to an end through Dreamcatchers’ new work [The End of Nightmare].

Dreamcatchers’ ‘Nightmare’ began on the 13th of January, 2017. Their unfolding nightmare has gradually evolved. And going from Prequel to a change to modern times, they captivated the world. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Dreamcatcher successfully wrapped up two world tours outside of Korea due to their very own ‘nightmare’ concept.

In their first piece [Nightmare], Dreamcatcher met us with their individual nightmares. ‘Being chased by someone: Jiu’, ‘Feeling like being watched by someone: Handong’, ‘Being locked up in a narrow space: Siyeon’, ‘Falling from a high place: Gahyeon’, ‘Not being able to move the entire body: Sua’, ‘Being lost in an unfamiliar place: Yoohyeon’, ‘Getting injured: Dami’, they are all nightmares we commonly get in our daily life. This was Dreamcatchers’ mischievous trick.

They followed up that story with [Nightmare·Fall asleep in the mirror]. Dreamcatchers’ mischievous tricks awaken the brutality of a nightmare hunter, and a hunt for the seven nightmares unfolds. Escape with an invitation by the nightmare hunter, captured nightmares, the desparate chase to save them from there, they add the twist to the twist and tie your heart up from start to finish.

In this next nightmares’ story existed a mystery that had not been resolved yet. ‘How did the girls become nightmares?’ They answered that question in their first mini album [Prequel], and in that process exactly met the taste of InSomnia all around the world.

Also, a new ‘nightmare’ unfolded. Dreamcatchers’ nightmare didn’t remain in only one epoch. In [Nightmare·Escape the ERA], they continued the unique nightmare fantasy story while at the same time wrapping up the Antique epoch they had portrayed in the meantime.

Fascinating stories, in which the obscure boundary between reality and dream, inside and outside are one, but seem like two, built Dreamcatchers’ own true identity.

And in the following [album] [Alone In The City], Dreamcatcher expanded the story by establishing modern peoples’ stress as a reason for nightmares. It showed the anxious youth of the real world, the illusion of everything that torments one being recreated in a nightmare, and the conflict between the ‘seven nightmares’, making Dreamcatchers’ own story even more fascinating.

Dreamcatchers’ narrative, that continued without rest like that, will finally reach a conclusion with [The End of Nightmare]. Like the title [The End of Nightmare] suggests, it is a work that concludes the ‘nightmare’ story that Dreamcatcher have laid out so far.

As expected, the conclusion that Dreamcatcher present is quite different from what you would imagine. You will be caught up in the endless repetition of the nightmares, like the ‘unexpected twist’ of nightmares presented previously, contrasting with the original symbol of “Dreamcatcher” – driving away the nightmare.

In other words, [The End of Nightmare] contains the end of the ‘nightmare’ Dreamcatcher presented, but at the same time also a new beginning, ‘fantasy da capo¹’.

But where does Dreamcatcher guide ‘nightmare’s Fine¹’? With Dreamcatchers ‘PIRI’, you are invited in an endless nightmare.

_______________
¹ T/N: ‘Da Capo’ is a musical term that means ‘From the beginning’ and is normally followed by term ‘Fine’ which means ‘end’.

Are ‘Nightmares’ this beautiful…Dreamcatcher, ‘Lunar New Year Greetings’ together with their Hanboks (Korean traditional costume)

Thanks to you it seems like we will spend an exciting holiday with our hearts full.” In order to become the Dreamcatcher that will receive even more acknowledgement from everyone for this album, we will do our best so please anticipate and give us a lot of love.

They have arranged to meet their fans with the release of their new mini album ‘The End of Nightmare’ this coming 13th. In light of new reports, the narration for the ‘Nightmare’ story thus far will be coming to an end, drawing extreme interest

At the present, Dreamcatcher are spending each remaining day busy doing their last preparations for their comeback.

Please greet the fans and the public for New Year and Lunar New Year

 

“Hello! I am Dreamcatcher’s ice princess Handong! Happy new year to everyone and I hope everyone does well in the things that they want to do!”

 

What are your goals for this year?

“For me firstly is to work hard, it will be good if I can improve my singing skills further. This year, other than performing as well, together with more variety of promotion activities, definitely expansion into China. I want to let the people in my hometown to know about Dreamcatcher.”

 

Do you have a new challenge in other areas you would like to try to welcome the new year?

“I have suddenly develop an interest in acting recently. Even though my skills are lacking, one day I would like to try acting once.”

 

Last year, with Full Moon, YOU AND I, and What, you did promotions to the point where there were no breaks in between, can we expect this year to be like the last or to be an even more active year?

“For this year, to Dreamcatcher and to our Insomnias who have given us love, it will be great if we have have a fulfilling and happy year. In order to meet everyone frequently, I will put in my best effort.”

 

During last year’s activities were there any points where you felt that it was a pity? Compared to last year, what is your resolution or something that you are determined to carry out this year?

“There was nothing disappointing. However, I want to work even harder. It will be great if there will be more people who know our songs. Also, I hope 2019 will be a year where I can grow even more.”

 

After Japanese promotions and World Tour, you’re planned for an Asia Tour this year too, is there anything that is slightly more improved or prepared differently compared to last time?

“During that time, we have planned to show more varied performance of Dreamcatcher while doing promotions. Specially, the new song for the upcoming comeback, we want to show the performance closely (to everyone). Also, something that cannot be left out, there are plans in preparation for unit performances so please anticipate that a lot.”

 

Lastly, a word from Dreamcatcher’s Handong to InSomnias who are waiting for this comeback,

“Please really anticipate this comeback. Even though I still cannot say anything yet, there will be yet another side/charm of me I have not been able to show everyone so please give me a lot of love!”

 

Dreamcatcher’s JiU, Sua, Siyeon, Yoohyeon, Dami, Handong and Gahyeon promoted Full Moon, YOU AND I and What actively last year with hardly any breaks. This year, on the 13th of February, Dreamcatcher will be making a comeback with their fourth mini-album, ‘The End of Nightmare’, which will be the conclusion of their ‘nightmare’ series. After their fourth mini-album promotions, they’ll be embarking on an Asia Tour to closely communicate with their foreign fans, ‘InSomnia’.
