Dreamcatcher Are All Flash and No Substance in Prequel

Ever since their debut, Dreamcatcher has gained attention from their dark, horror-esque image and rock-influenced sound; landing on the Seoulbeats mid-year rankings for one of the best debuts of 2017. As such, their first mini, entitled Prequel, had high expectations. And, honestly, it’s hard to say if those expectations are met.

Dreamcatcher certainly gets marks for venturing outside of the designated safe zones of the K-pop landscape. In a musical world full of synth-pop, electropop, house, and hip-hop, their J-rock-inspired music is a breath of fresh air. And that’s coming from someone who likes the current landscape. But it’s easy to be fresh and out there for one song; an album even just a mini album requires more effort; which is where Prequel starts to run into trouble.

Dreamcatcher Finds the Light with Fly High, a Prequel

After the dark fantasy and metal tales of Chase Me and Good Night, Dreamcatcher turned on the lights for Fly High, the prequel to the aforementioned MVs. While a much brighter video and song, the nightmares found in the girls dreamcatchers are fully exposed in their French wonderland. Fly High exposes the intricate and dark story behind the witchcraft and satanic magic that ultimately drives the women to destroy the life and soul of a man.

The MV takes place on a French property and explains the past tragedies that led to the dark, gothic horrors in their other MVs. Its assumed that the property is actually the hotel in the previous releases. Despite this horrific pain and tragedy that we know takes place in the future, the Dreamcatcher members here begin as innocent women with a fascination for the world. There are innocent shots of the girls running together in the sunshine, eating together, and even playing the piano. Unfortunately, these positive events unravel as the MV falls into darkness.
