Welcome to our next installment of our Artist Spotlights! Next up are the queens of dark and mystical concepts, Dreamcatcher!
Dreamcatcher is a 7-member girl group from Happy Face Entertainment. They debuted in 2014 as MINX before re-branding themselves in 2017 as Dreamcatcher with a new group name and theme.
They are most recognized for their powerful and nightmarish concepts, which delve deeply into the supernatural and mystical. They most recently came back with the metal and rock track, “You and I,” which concludes their “nightmare” theme.
Without further ado, let’s get to know the group better!
The members of Dreamcatcher are composed of the leader, JiU, as well as SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami, and Gahyeon. Each of the members has their own unique traits. Some fun facts include that Gahyeon was an honor student in school, Dami knows kendo, and that JiU does aerobics as a stress reliever.

“You and I (Inst.)”
My favorite song from “Nightmare” is “Chase Me.” It really has that intense, rock and dance element that I find extremely compelling and also rare in K-pop.
From “Fall Asleep in the Mirror,” it’s “Good Night” because of the dark and mystical themes, as well as the rock-dance theme that was also in “Chase Me.”
I would definitely recommend all of the tracks on “Prequel” and “Escape the Era,” but my absolute favorites from both are: “Fly High” and “Sleepwalking,” as well as “You and I” and “Scar.”
The biggest charm of Dreamcatcher is their versatility with genres, as well as their unique penchant for metal, rock, and dance tracks, as well as the horror concept which is rare in K-pop.
