If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you could infer that I have a special place in my heart for girl groups. Maybe it’s because girl groups come under more scrutiny based on their concepts or how they present themselves, since there is a very narrow line the girls can tread.
However, girl group debuts can get tiring after a while. Most of the time, debuts tend to play it safe, especially if one is coming from a small company. Big names like SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment can get away with putting out a group with a unique concept and still get a following. As a result, we get a lot of generic, even mediocre bullshit for debuts in smaller companies. Hell, there are rookie girl groups that go between many different concepts until they find one that works and run with it.
So, when I saw a bunch of the promotion material and teasers for Dream Catcher’s debut, I got pretty freaking excited. Under Happy Face Entertainment, home of Dal Shabet, the promise of a horror/paranormal concept at the center of the group was enticing, and it’s a wonder none of the big companies tried to do it sooner.
