The girl group DREAMCATCHER are set to begin their first solo reality after debut with a production company created by PD Han Dongcheol.
According to music industry officials on the 19th, Dreamcatcher is working with Funky Studio, led by PD Han Dongcheol, to produce a solo variety show. Filming will begin in earnest starting this month, and it will be revealed in the form of internet content sometime in the future. It is in conjunction with A9 Media, who will be aiding in the production of the reality show.
Dreamcatcher is a team composed of 7 members including JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Yoohyeon, Dami, Handong and Gahyeon. They debuted in 2017, and they have secured their position both domestically and abroad through their music and performances that take root in their metal sound and powerful world-building.
They have proved their growth by exceeding 100,000 album sales with their mini-album ‘Dystopia : Road to Utopia’, and they also held an online solo concert on the 26th and 27th of last month to an online audience consisting of 20,000 concert-goers. It is anticipated that a solo reality show will be able to bring out a variety of charms that have not yet been revealed.
PD Han Dongcheol is a star producer who led several popular programs such as ‘Produce 101’ , ‘Show Me the Money’, ‘Unpretty Rapstar’, and ‘Sixteen’ during his time at Mnet. After he moved to YG Entertainment in 2017, he directed ‘Mix Nine’ and ‘YG Jewel Box’. PD Han Dongcheol, who left YG Entertainment for a new start, recently founded Funky Studio, a one-man production company. Currently, with MBC, he has started production for an audition program for a new girl group scheduled to be broadcast in November, and they are preparing to launch a number of other new programs.
Dreamcatcher, which continues to grow with a steady pace, has recently announced that they plan to maintain active communication with their fans through various channels as they continue working on a new album after completing their online solo concert. The kind of synergy they will create by collaborating with Funky Studio, a production company led by PD Han Dongcheol who has created a number of hit programs, is the focus of attention.
