[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.

She added: “So even though there is a burden to it, too, we work hard on our promotions to be suitable for the company’s name. I hope that you will watch us.”

 

Dreamcatchers’ nightmare that started January 13th, 2017 captured the world while going through several changes from Prequel to modern times. Dreamcatcher are wrapping up their nightmare series with this album.

 

Dreamcatchers’ new song ‘PIRI’ displays modern peoples’ feelings of wanting to break free from the lonelyness and anxiety of being left by oneself. In the lyrics, they are articulating their SOS signal through the matter of the ‘PIRI’, and the melody line, that is repeated with ear-catching flute and whistle sounds, stands out.

[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’.
