Dreamcatcher (Korean: 드림캐쳐, romanizeddeurimkaechyeo; formerly known as MINX; also stylized as Dream Catcher) is a South Korean girl group formed by Happyface Entertainment (now Dreamcatcher Company). The group consists of seven members: JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami and Gahyeon.[1] They made their official debut on January 13, 2017, with the single album Nightmare.

Dreamcatcher originally debuted under the name MINX,[2] releasing the single "Why Did You Come to My Home" on September 18, 2014 with a five-member lineup of JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Yoohyeon, and Dami.[3] That December, they released the holiday single "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" with girl group Dal Shabet. They released the EP Love Shake, their last release as MINX, in July 2015. In November 2016, the group announced that they would re-debut in 2017 under the new name Dreamcatcher with two new members, Handong and Gahyeon.[4]

Career[edit]

2014–2016: MINX[edit]

The group as MINX on stage in 2015.

Under the name Minx, the group held their first live performance at the Oak Valley Summertime Festival on August 9, 2014, where they performed two original songs: "Action" and "Why Did You Come To My Home".[5][6] On September 15, Happyface Entertainment officially announced their new girl group,[3] and Minx released their debut digital single "Why Did You Come to My Home" on September 18. The song was described as a "new take on the children's rhyme" of the same name.[7] Minx made their official debut on M Countdown on September 18 and ended promotions on October 26 with a final performance on Inkigayo.[8][9]

In July 2015, Minx released their first EP, Love Shake, with a lead single of the same name. The single was promoted as a "joyous song" that "goes well with summer", a remake of the song "Love Shake" from labelmate Dal Shabet's Bang Bang album.[10][11] On the same day, Minx held a press showcase at Ellui, a club in Seoul.[12] They performed their first comeback stage on The Show on June 30 and Show Champion on July 1.

2017: Re-debut as Dreamcatcher and Prequel[edit]

In November 2016, Happyface Entertainment revealed that Minx would re-debut under the name Dreamcatcher with two additional members, Handong and Gahyeon.[13][4][14] The group re-debuted with the release of their single album Nightmare and its lead single "Chase Me" on January 13, 2017.[15] On January 19, they held an official debut stage at M Countdown with "Chase Me".

Towards the end of the year, Dreamcatcher received critical acclaim from music critics worldwide for their unique sound that incorporated influences of rock and metal music. "Chase Me" placed at number 19 on Billboard's Best K-Pop Songs of 2017: Critics' Picks,[27] and Dreamcatcher was listed number three on Billboard's Best New K-Pop Acts in 2017.[28]

2018: Rising success and first world tour[edit]

On January 4, 2018, Happyface Entertainment revealed that Dreamcatcher would release a new digital single dedicated to fans in celebration of their first anniversary on January 12, composed by Ollounder (오종훈) and Leez (이수민), who also composed Dreamcatcher's previous lead singles "Chase Me" and "Good Night".[29] Individual teaser photos were subsequently released every day until January 12,[30] when Dreamcatcher officially released their first anniversary digital single "Full Moon" alongside a promotional video.[31] The single immediately charted highly on the iTunes Top 100 K-Pop charts in many countries worldwide and ranked number 16 on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.[32] On January 13, Dreamcatcher held their first anniversary fan meeting at the Mary Hall Grand Theatre at Sogang University, where they performed "Full Moon" for the first time.[33] In February 2018, Dreamcatcher became the first K-pop girl group to complete a tour of major European cities. Cities visited on the "Fly High" World Tour included London (February 14), Lisbon (February 16), Madrid (February 18), Amsterdam (February 21), Berlin (February 22), Warsaw (February 23), and Paris (February 25).[34][35] In March 2018, the group announced their official fandom name to be "InSomnia".[36]

However, due to undisclosed reasons, the concert stop in Jakarta was later canceled; instead, a short fan meeting was held. On July, 3 more shows were announced as part of the "Invitation From Nightmare City" tour, including Australian cities Melbourne and Sydney and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
