Rapping, Producing, Directing, Korean Group DPR Can Do It All

Listening to DPR's music and watching their music videos makes you appreciate how much effort is put in behind the scenes.

Rapping. Singing. Producing music. Directing music videos. Creating. Now imagine all of those jobs in one group and you have DPR.

Dream Perfect Regime is a multi-genre music and video group based in Seoul, South Korea. They're a group like no other. On their website, they describe their main goal to "engage all audiences by actualizing a distinctive audiovisual experience." And that's exactly what they do.

The group came together in 2015 with its members coming from all over. Don't get confused, they aren't boy band (in fact, nothing even close). They are a group that works on all different platforms to create music and visuals.

You may have heard of "Eung Freestyle." Racking up 28 million views on YouTube, this video went viral and was used frequently in YouTube's ads.

The music video features DPR's frontman and rapper, LIVE. To understand more about the group, you have to know the members and roles that they play to create their masterpieces.


As mentioned before, DPR LIVE, or Dabin, is DPR's rapper, whose voice you will hear on every song. His tagline "Coming to you live!" is similar to that of a live broadcaster on the news, which goes along with his artist name. He released his debut album, "Coming To You Live," just last year! Here is one of my favorite songs off of it.

The same year, he also released "Her." My favorite song of that album is "Text Me." Note how he seamlessly switches from Korean to English, while still maintaining a good flow.

Some fun facts about LIVE: He is from South Korea but was raised in Guam. He can fluently speak both English and Korean.


So after watching those two music videos, did you see how aesthetically pleasing, creative and straight up AMAZING those visuals were? It was all thanks to the next member, +IAN, or Christian Yu. He is the group's director and chief editor for the music videos and creatives. He is also the founder of DPR. He has directed music videos for many big-name Korean artists, such as Big Bang's Taeyang. Just to emphasize how talented and artistic these music videos he creates are, here are my favorites.

What I love about his work is how the visuals create the mood for the song and it just makes it that more entertaining and enjoying to watch.

Some fun facts about Christian: He used to be apart of the Kpop scene, being one of the members of the group "C-Clown," which has since disbanded. He is from Australia! He also speaks Korean and English fluently.


Behind the musical masterpieces is DPR CREAM, or Cream. He is DPR's producer! His favorite track off the "Coming To You Live" album is "Laputa." He made the majority of the beats in DPR LIVE's debut album.

Some fun facts about Cream: He can fluently speak Korean, but cannot speak English as well. He is also a member of the South Korean duo, LAYBACKSOUND.


Last but not least is DPR REM, also known as Scott Kim. He is in charge of the merchandise (which sold out in a day) and is the production director.

Some fun facts about Scott: He is from the United States. He can speak both English and Korean fluently.

Now that you understand the roles of each member, it is evident that this group works together to create like nothing we've seen before. What I love about DPR is how unique this group is. Listening to their music and watching their music video makes you appreciate how much effort is put in behind the scenes.

Check out their latest song, "Action!" featuring GRAY. It is a masterpiece from beginning to end; you can hear how creative the music was produced.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
