We are excited to introduce Dreamcatcher, a Korean girl group signed under Happy Face Entertainment, based in Seoul, Korea.
The group consists of seven females: JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami and Gahyeon. The members officially debuted as Dreamcatcher on January 13, 2017 with an album that goes extremely well with their single title: Nightmare.
In case you were not informed, we’re letting you know that five of the Dreamcatcher members are not newbies to the music scene. JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Yoohyeon and Dami were active under the name – “Minx” from back in September 2014 – when they released their debut single “Why Did You Come to My Home?”
In November 2016, their company released notice that they were to re-debut under the new name, with two additional members Gahyeon and Handong.
On April 5 2017, Dreamcatcher made their comeback with singles Dreamcatcher’s concept well: “Fall asleep in the Mirror” and its title track “Good Night”.
We would like to thank each and every one of the members for their time for this interview.
Dear Dreamcatcher members…thank you for taking this interview. Would you like to introduce yourselves?
JiU: Hello, my name is JiU and who is the group’s leader and lead vocalist of Dreamcatcher.
SuA: Hi! This is SuA who is in charge of Dreamcatcher‘s choreography and vocals. I am also responsible for having a pair of “Midas golden hands” in the group since I can draw, make crafts and cook well.
Siyeon: Hello! I am called Siyeon and I was born in 1995 ~ I’m the main vocalist, as well as being the real energizer of our team.
Handong: Hello! I am a 22-year-old student name is Handong, and it’s been about a year and a half since I’ve been residing in Korea. It’s been 6~7 months since I’ve been signed to this company.
I came to study in Korea since I’ve been very interested in K-pop for a while and was given a great chance to do an audition when I was majoring in the department of “Practical Music.”
I’ve also been into musicals and so I began taking opera and acting lessons. Currently, I am one of the vocalists from Dreamcatcher.
Yoohyeon: Hello, I am a 21-year-old lead vocalist called Yoohyeon and I will make your hearts fall for my attraction.
Dami: Hello! This is Dami and I am the rapper of Dreamcatcher.
Gahyeon: Hi, this is Dreamcatcher’s lovable Maknae and sub-vocal Gayun!!
Let us know how you got interested in music as a career?
JiU: When I was growing up, my parents used to play a lot of Fin.K.L songs that got me naturally loving to sing and dance, that made me make up my mind to become a singer for sure.
SuA: I loved to dance since I was extremely young, so I was always admiring singers like Lee Hyori and Rain Sunbaenim which led me to being a singer.
I am the one who trained the longest and I’ve been now able to make this debut with all the experience as a member of Dreamcatcher.
Siyeon: I was vocalist at my school’s band for two years and used to going to massive concerts; so I wanted to perform in front of a bigger audience myself.
Handong: When I was in High school, I watched a video of Tayeon singing and felt her voice and face seemed so pure and pretty, shining on stage. From then on I wanted to become an attractive artist like Tayeon.
Yoohyeon: I used to be a Wonder Girls’ fan years before, so after I was watching MTV about them, I made up my mind that I wanted to become a singer like them.
Dami: I began dreaming of becoming a singer after joining the choir in elementary school. Because I loved to response from the audience I wanted to become a singer.
Gahyeon: When I was younger, I had a random thought that I wanted to be on TV. Then my mother showed me a video of BoA sunbaenim and I decided that a singer was what I wanted to be.
Do you have any special talents or interests?
JiU: I love shopping! I like walking around so I enjoy listening to music while I wander around trying out great food. My specialty and interests are dancing, putting on lovely and natural-looking type of make-up and I’m really interested in food that is healthy… clothes and beauty-related stuff.
SuA: I like to meet up with my friends to binge great food, instead of staying indoors, I like to get out and be active. I really like to shop, watch movies, go around visit great restaurants during my free time and in-between those times I stay at home to draw or make artsy craft. But I would have to say, my most favorites hobby is watching TV Dramas.
Siyeon: I like to play games during my given free time. And I either listen to music or just enjoy being alone with the lights turned low in my room.
Handong: When I have free time, I enjoy Youtube and like to go shopping.
Yoohyeon: I love surfing on Youtube, I like channels like Pewdiedie, Buzzfeed...since I enjoy learning languages so much; I wanted to initially learn German but decided to start with English instead. I am learning English currently but not that I am not that great anymore.
Dami: I usually read a book or watch a video when I have free time. I carry a book when I have schedules and read constantly, enjoy whatever genre.
I usually like to watch videos which are music-related sources.
Gahyeon: I like to go shopping with the sisters, rest at the dorm or meet my parents. My hobbies are experimenting with cooking and I am currently absorbed in dieting and food reviews.
Who would be the one person you admire the most?
JiU: I respect my parents the most!!! I believe they’ve brought me up right and I consider that if I can only live like they do in the future, I’d consider myself happy. When I grow old I would like to be just like them.
SuA: I respect my parents the most; I am so thankful to have my mother and father as my parents – they are always diligent, know how to persevere in life and they are very considerate of others – so I respect them the most.
Siyeon: My parents, they are warm-hearted, honest folks who always strive to do their best in everything they do.
Handong: My mother~
Yoohyeon: My father is someone I admire and respect!! Because of him, I knew what I wanted to do from an early age. He told me that I could achieve anything if I put in the work which would lead me to the road to success. I also admire mother’s character and personality.
Dami: My parents: Their whole existence is an honor to me.
Gahyeon: My mother.

Tell us what you like to eat or drink?
JiU: There are so many foods and cuisine that I love, I love rice types of foods like sea food rolls and as to drinks, I love them all. I really don’t have a definite preference when it comes to drinks. This question seems to be the hardest for me, personally. Haha.

Handong: I like cookies and egg tarts, and like to drink Oreo chocolate smoothie.

Dami: Sweet potatoes – I carry dried sweet potato chips around with me these days. I like all kinds of dumplings.
Gahyeon: Chicken! Meat! Raw fish, mixed noodles my gran makes, the egg rolls my mother makes, soy bean paste soup and fizzy drinks like coke and Fanta. The thing is, there isn’t really any food that I don’t like but I hate cucumbers – I eat them only if they are served with tuna.
Let us know if there were any films, books or musicals you’ve enjoyed recently.
JiU: Well…there have not been any movies I’ve seen recently, and no books for that matter. I get to sleep after monitoring our own videos.
SuA: The film I saw recently was Master, and I read the book called, “The Courage To Be Hated.” I enjoy watching dramas so I would like to recommend you “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” which most of you have seen. It is a drama that made me cry so much as “Kill me Heal me” did.
Siyeon: Master! I really enjoyed watching the work. After watching Master the film, I became a fan of actor Kang Dongwon. ♡
Handong: The book I’ve read recently is called, The Devotion of Suspect X.
Yoohyeon: The Resident Evil, the recent movie. It was really thrilling to watch and the actress has not aged at all.
I read a book called “Courage To Be Disliked” which something you read in life, it really helped when I was stressed, it also helped me to become more mature.
Dami: The first book of the Harry Potter series. I read the books, “Seoul District” by Sangwook Hahn and Youngjin Mun’s “Living Is Like A Flower.”
Gahyeon: A book of poetry called, “Maybe The Stars Will Take Away Your Sorrows” – it also has a blank space for you to make notes.
What would be the one song you’d recommend?
JiU: “Chase Me” by Dreamcatcher is a great song! It was really great lol. Please check that song out!
SuA: Bruno Mars – Finesse is a song that makes you want to dance to funky rythmn and tune.
Siyeon: ONE OK ROCK – One Way Ticket
Handong: A song called, Lay Me Down.
Yoohyeon: All songs by Troye Sivan! I like “Youth” and a song called “Kiss Me” that he covered.
Dami: Dynamic Duo’s – U-turn.
Gahyeon: Dreamcatcher’s – Emotion – which is a side B track but it’s a
really cool song. It’s very different to Dreamcatcher’s title song.
Do you have any bad habits you’d like to fix?
JiU: I don’t really have a bad habit to be frank. Hahaha. But I think I need to quit eating up all the food when I am really full.

Yoohyeon: I want to learn how to walk with a straight posture; usually my back is kind of crooked.
