My answer is super obvious - I love it!!!! With You and I, I do like it a lot but after first viewing/listening I felt like it was missing something, which I normally don’t feel that way with Dreamcatcher songs (but in no time I was loving it). But here it’s back to normal response, I love it at first listen lol!

I need to give What a few more listn because I can't help but think like the song is incomplete somehow

Amazing, they never disappoint me. I love that they keep the rock sounds and that many parts of their chorro are reminiscent of the earlier ones. I’m gonna listen to the album once I’m at work, already downloaded on Apple Music so I can’t wait! My queens <3

Yoohyeon is wearing nearly the same outfit that Gfriend was wearing in their release yesterday, lmao. Burn it!

The song is fire, and the choreo, while less hard-hitting than their previous tracks, still fits the track well. I like the video too, it seems like it could lead into a potential sequel which I'm always for.

soooo this is the first song that i REALLY like
who is the girl absolutely murdering the chorus? and the rapper? im in love with them
jesymphony 20th-Sep-2018 01:17 pm (UTC)
Siyeon is singing during the chorus (and killing us all, snatching our weaves, using our bald heads as microphones) and the rapper is Dami!
volume1995 20th-Sep-2018 01:19 pm (UTC)
Her voice is so good and fits this genre so well!!!! I don't wanna say her voice is like a breath of fresh air cause they've been around for a while but it truly is something else (also trap is so good)
Thanks for the reply!! JiU and Yoohyeon are the other two that got my attention and they're so charismatic? Damn like I needed a new girlgroup in my life
belintuchiha 20th-Sep-2018 01:26 pm (UTC)
It might help that Siyeon loves rock music, her fave group is One Ok Rock so I think that helps a lot when it comes to her putting her voice in these rock-like songs.
volume1995 20th-Sep-2018 02:47 pm (UTC)
Her voice fits these songs so well! She'd kick the absolute ass outta BiSH songs too damn
jesymphony 20th-Sep-2018 02:36 pm (UTC)
For real though, KPop doesn't have a vocalist like Siyeon, at least not a female one. The only similar vocalist with this rock and roll potential I can think of are like Hongki from FT Island (before he ruined his high register), maybe some of the boys from Day6. But girl group wise, it'd take a very brave female vocalist to try and cover Siyeon's singing. Even in prior Dreamcatcher songs, Siyeon does amazing things, but she's SLAYING in this song.

You have such amazing taste tho?? Because JiU and Yoohyeon are my No1 and No2 biases respectively?? JiU is such charisma goals, she stares into a camera and just rocks my world and Yoohyeon can step on me legit. It's a damn slippery slope from there cause the rest of the girls are so stannable.
volume1995 20th-Sep-2018 02:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah Siyeon is solely slaying the rock-dol category, the only one who can actually would come near is 4minute's jiyoon cause she had that husky voice whenever she'd belt

Thanks bb!! So do you!! This group is no joke when it comes to charisma and unity, something a lot of groups can learn from
belintuchiha 20th-Sep-2018 01:25 pm (UTC)
Siyeon is the one murdering the chorus, her voice is no joke.
The rapper is Dami!
volume1995 20th-Sep-2018 02:46 pm (UTC)
thanks bb!! theyre both so pretty too

So anybody have a theory regarding how this MV's storyline fits into the overall arc? This is mine, but I'd love to hear what other In Somnias think:

I reckon Yoohyeon is a vengeful spirit/immortal, that's been tainted because of the Spider's Curse and how she was the one that brought it down on all of the girls in Fly High, or Yoohyeon has been possessed by the Spider itself. She's the only one shown with a bedroom while the other girls are stuck in different places within that motel/building. The other girls have been reincarnated into the modern day without any memories of their previous witchy selves and are stuck in a loop/trapped in the nightmare that's all being anchored by Yoohyeon in that bedroom. JiU is the only one not trapped in the building because she's the only one shown waking up in the MV and doing so outside of the building (also telegraphed because in Fly High, she was the last to be taken in by the Spider's Curse and very almost escaped). I think the umbrella imagery JiU has in the bridge section could also show the passage of time, and how she wakes up at the start of the MV and at the very end? So maybe all the girls have been reincarnating and looping for decades all because Yoohyeon's spirit /the Spider possessing her hasn't been put to rest properly.

I think future MVs will have JiU attempting to rescue the other girls from the loop, and perhaps culminating in a final story where the girls will bring peace to Yoohyeon's/the Spider's spirit and finally all of them are freed from the cycle and can finally be at peace. I love love love that scene where JiU looks up and dark!Yoohyeon is standing on the roof of the building where all the other girls are trapped with that look like "Bring it on." And I do think Yoohyeon's true spirit will ultimately be saved, because all the imagery in this MV is of her being trapped in that bedroom which becomes that blood soaked horror scene, while her dark self roams the roof.

The only thing that sticks out to me is Siyeon, because she has her solo scenes outside during a snowfall, but I think that's also her with solo scenes at the door. So maybe her good spirit is very close to reincarnating though her dark self is trying to exert control and is actively keeping the gates closed and the girls trapped within the looping nightmare they can't escape from.

Wasn't Yoohyeon exorcised in You & I? Or did they fail.
I think Yoohyeon spirit is trapped as well
jesymphony 20th-Sep-2018 02:31 pm (UTC)
I think ultimately the exorcism failed in You And I because Yoohyeon never reached the crystal/portal door in the end. So it would make sense that in What she's still stuck in whatever world the girls couldn't get her out from.
benihime99 20th-Sep-2018 02:35 pm (UTC)
I feel like the girl in the room is her possessed body but the girl on the roof (who then wakes up ) is her real self (spirit)?
jesymphony 20th-Sep-2018 02:37 pm (UTC)
Oh wow that's a really interesting interpretation and I'm here for it, especially since the girl on the roof version of Yoohyeon looks so antagonistic toward JiU. Like what kinda grudge does Yoohyeon's original spirit hold, especially if she retains all her memories from the Fly High MV.
belintuchiha 20th-Sep-2018 03:34 pm (UTC)
In the showcase, the girls explained they each represent a "problem" which is why their concept is stress. Like Gahyeon represents stress- thus her messy hair and Yoohyeon represents sleep paralysis, etc.
dior_chic 20th-Sep-2018 04:26 pm (UTC)
Oh that’s so cool!
belintuchiha 20th-Sep-2018 01:32 pm (UTC)

AS I SAID BEFORE, Dreamcatcher is out here snatching wigs and possibly having one of the best discographies in kpop.
weneedmedicine 20th-Sep-2018 02:52 pm (UTC)
ngl, usually their songs sound the exact same to me, but this is a whole ass jam.
paige_nevaeh 20th-Sep-2018 03:54 pm (UTC)
Have been looking forward to finishing work to listen to this.

They have NOT disappointed. This is so good. The girls are KILLING it.
daceymormont 20th-Sep-2018 05:00 pm (UTC)
This album is fucking amazing
gathyou 20th-Sep-2018 05:53 pm (UTC)
Sometimes I feel they rebranded the whole group just so Siyeon could shine with those rock songs. Her voice suits this genre so much.
It's a good mini! I really like Wonderland's groove, it's different from anything they've done so far. Also, Trap is a jam, it obviously have very different elements but I like how they made it flow. Only July 7th doesn't immediatly grab me but I'm sure it will grow on me
yxerin 20th-Sep-2018 09:17 pm (UTC)
BUDGET right outta the gate damn
the aes is tight and not as trashy as i thought it would be based on the first teasers. gonna have to listen to the album tomorrow
ursulavosyem 20th-Sep-2018 09:44 pm (UTC)
SUCH A GOOD SONG!!! I love the verses the most, the "what" part of the chorus gets too repetitive for me, but still SUCH a good release, I'm so glad!!!
frequency 21st-Sep-2018 12:55 am (UTC)
damn i think this is my favorite title track of theirs so far. i love it!!
antrea 21st-Sep-2018 03:17 am (UTC)
Holy solid album
July 7th is really interesting!!! It might be my favorite

I like how they moved away from their usual formula for the single!! But I'm not sure about some parts of the song. They look AMAZING THO. Siyeon was seriously working the heck out of that.
