‘House’: Dreamcatcher Wins First Music Show 5 Years After Debut, Fans Say, ‘It’s Been A Long Time’

April 20 is a date that will probably never be forgotten by Dreamcatcher fans. The K-pop girl group has earned their first music show win, more than 5 years after their debut. The girl group recently returned with their second studio album “Apocalypse: Save Us” and lead single “House.” On April 20, ‘House’ won MBC’s music show ‘Show Champion’ with 6545 points.

It’s even more impressive because Dreamcatcher’s competition on “Show Champion” was quite strong. They faced off against ‘monster rookies’ IVE, legendary boy group BIGBANG who returned after 5 years, SHINee leader ONEW and rising stars DKZ (Dongkiz). IVE and BIGBANG were on a winning streak the previous days. However, Dreamcatcher got full scores in the “global vote”, “social media” and “broadcast” criteria and ended up winning.

Dreamcatcher wins its first music show

Fans and even non-fans were touched when Dreamcatcher started crying on stage while thanking fans for the music show’s victory. The girl group only comes in second for the longest time between debut and a win after the Brave Girls of “chart reversal queens” who took 10 years. It’s even more emotional for five of the members who debuted in 2014 as MINX before renaming themselves Dreamcatcher, meaning it took them 7 years to get their first career win.

Music shows are an integral part of K-pop promotions, as artists perform their new singles on television and thus attract the attention of the general public. But with tons of artists promoting at the same time, a win spotlights one artist each week. And while music show wins don’t really represent a group’s success, some K-pop agencies focus on them and go so far as to introduce certain privileges like phone privileges so that their artists are incentivized. This, in turn, drives fans to do their best to help their favorite idols win.

‘We did it’

Fans trended #DREAMCATCHER1stWin as they celebrated. One fan tweeted: “Words without expressing how proud I am of both deukae and insomnia, this is probably the best thing that has happened in kpop history, the most deserved victory of all the time.” Another posted: “And THAT’S why they never gave up.” One Insomnia shared, “APRIL 20, 2022. DREAMCATCHER HAS ACHIEVED ITS 1ST VICTORY SINCE DEBUTING WITH MAISON. WE DID IT!!!!!” Another commented, “WE ARE JOINING THE CLUB.” One Insomnia added, “We love you so much remember you are still the most iconic band and there there is no one like you, we love you.”
