[Review] Dreams Come True – WJSN (Cosmic Girls)

Making their comeback today is WJSN (aka. Cosmic Girls) with Dreams Come True and their 4th mini-album, titled as Dream Your Dream. This is the girls first comeback in 9 months, the last being their Happy promotions back in June last year.

Dreams Come True is actually another great song to add to WJSN’s portfolio. I actually really liked the instrumentals at the start of the song, which gives the song a serious tone. Furthermore, the synths used gives off an epic vibe as well. Talking about synths, their usage in this video is quite heavy. Not that is a problem, though. I love the use of the synthesizer during the post-chorus hook (‘Trust In Me, Trust In You‘), which I think is the main highlight of the entire track. That hook is also quite addictive in nature and draws my attention to the song. Vocal work is quite good but the rap segment was the one to surprise me. And it is a good surprise. Exy was amazing during the rap section, portraying a very serious yet powerful side during a more quiet section of the song. It allowed Exy to show more style and at the same time satisfied my yearning after WJSN and Monsta X’s collaboration a few years back. While it does fit in with their past aesthetically pleasing songs, it does show off a more mature sound, something that we knew the group was capable of (just we didn’t see any of it until now).

Once again, aesthetic videos are right up WJSN’s alley. And this video is pretty much that. I am not much of a fan of filters. They are either a hit or miss for me. In this video, they seem to be a miss entirely. But besides that, it is a nice video to watch. In the video, the girls seem to be going about their day until they can some sort of call to follow these light orbs, which are sent out from above. I am not exactly sure what happens then. They come together in some field where all the light orbs are and using these light orbs they manage to shut down a purple storm cloud. That is my literal explanation of the story but if there are any other theories out there, please feel free to comment and share what you think is happening in this video!

I liked how elegant the entire performance was. It made for a very cool performance to watch. I love the post-chorus hook’s accompanying dance. Also really cool formations were the moves for the entire bridge, particularly how one-by-one some of the members joined a ring around the vocalist during the start of the bridge and the 3 member lineup at the end of the bridge (2:54 of music video).

Song – 9/10
Music Video – 7/10
Performance – 8.5/10
Overall Rating – 8.3/10
