This video reviews Dreamcatcher's career over the years, showing full performances starting from Chase Me to Odd Eye. The host talks about MINX debut and shows their performances at the end!! The girls pop in to answer a few questions between a couple of the performances, but overall this is a stage compilation.

Note: Deja Vu was left out for some reason. Also, Odd Eye is shown at the beginning of the video showing their current comeback and the same performance is shown again at the end, so feel free to skip it as that's the end of the video.

frequency This is exactly what you were looking for when you posted the MNet Comeback compilation! Though it's a shame Deja Vu is missing from the list :(

Cinema looks for ways to survive with games, re-releases & trot

The victor emerging from the strife between COVID-19 and the movie theater industry worldwide in 2020 was obvious from the start.

As the pandemic has lasted for an unexpectedly long period of time, total sales of the domestic cinema industry last year were a paltry 510 billion won ($450 million), a whopping 73.3 percent decrease from the year before, according to a Korean Film Council report. Audiences shrank to the level seen back in 1999, right after the Asian financial crisis.

The unbelievable loss of profits and filmgoers has led Korea's multiplex chain operators to look for other ways to survive the coronavirus pandemic. With the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday and Valentine's Day, the industry is gearing up to attract family audiences and couples to fill the seats with new releases and niche content such as games, re-releases and trot, a style of popular music here.

"AzitX," a service launched by CGV last month, rents out 34 theaters nationwide to patrons who wish to immerse themselves in their favorite console games on the big screen with richer sounds and comfortable seats. Users need to bring their own game consoles and can play their games in a private setting with up to nine guests.

The video games thing sounds cool, and I like how they limit it to 9 people.
