Have you ever imagined working at a company where you have control over the creative process, the final output, and you're working with some of your closest friends? Sounds like a dream right? DPR started almost the same way too. The Dream Perfect Regime, also known as DPR is a "fully independent multi-genre music and video group" based in Seoul, South Korea. The collective is composed of artists from different backgrounds and influences that come together to write, shoot, direct, and produce music and audio-visual outputs.

It all started when DPR Live (Hong Da Bin) and DPR Ian (Christian Yu) found their common passion through dance and music. Together with DPR Cream (Kim Kyung Mo) and DPR Rem (Scott Kim), they formed the Dream Perfect Regime collective and have started to add DPR into their stage names. After building the indie label from the ground-up, DPR has grown to nine creative artists coming together to create groundbreaking music and visual art. 

As DPR Live once described during an interview, “We’re perfecting our dreams, it’s a regime; we’re coming up to take over”. In 2015, the dream took shape as the crew formed DPR, and has become the independent music collective label that they are known today.

2. Changing the Korean Music Scene

With their unique take in music, visual arts, and production, DPR has produced some of the most catchy and unique tracks in the Korean music scene. Known for their hiphop and R&B beats, DPR's releases such as its debut Eung Freestyle, DPR Live's Jasmine, DPR Ian's Nerves, and DPR Cream's Color Dive are just some of their most popular tracks with fresh hiphop beats and catchy verses.

What started as a group of friends making underground indie music to express their passion, DPR has grown into a well-known independent music group with millions of fans all over the world. Add to that, their creative and out-of-this world visuals expressed through music videos, posters and social media posts has helped in building the popularity of the group.

3. Meaningful collabs with other K-artists

Some new fans of DPR might recognize DPR Ian in CL's music video for 5 star. DPR Ian played the role of CL's handsome love interest, and both old and new fans were smitten by their chemistry. Aside from the MV, DPR Ian also collaborated with CL for her song No Blueberries.

Fans of the K-pop girl group Mamamoo were also ecstatic when Hwasa and DPR Live announced their second collaboration last 2021 for Live's song Hula Hoops. Prior to this, Hwasa and DPR Live also collaborated for a single during Hwasa's album launch, titled I'm Bad Too.

Other artists that the DPR team has collaborated with were Loco, Jay Park and Dean. 


Why should you watch DPR perform this November 30 and what should you watch out for? Aside from their unique and catchy music, DPR expresses their love for their craft through their performances and interactions with their fans. It's no wonder that despite coming from the underground hiphop scene, the crew easily made its way to the hearts of music fans, not just in Korea but all over the world.

Los Angeles-based band Fiji Blue incorporated by Trevor Dering and Valentin Fritz launched their Asia tour including Manila for the first time in their career and fans didn't miss the chance to witness them perform live last November 17, 2022, at the Samsung Hall - SM Aura Premier.

Known for their hits 'Butterflies', 'Waves', 'It Takes Two' and 'Space Makes Me Sad' made the crowd to be on a rollercoaster ride of feelings with their "sad boy chill house" indie pop upbeat and slow tracks throughout the whole show.

Trevor entered the stage with 'Affection' which the fans cheer to and sing along with the band.

After a couple of songs, the artist conveyed his thoughts on how he felt the tenderness of the warm welcome especially since it was their first time here in the Philippines after gaining attention from the locals during the pandemic. He already loved the routine that started from his family here in the country which was also present during the show and definitely assured that they'll be back again and then proceed on performing more tracks.

While the whole night was getting better, a fan at the barricade offered to do some card magic for the singer and called him up to the stage and blew everyone's mind after performing two tricks.

The show continued with a slowed version of 'Waves' that made the crowd vent out their pain through the song's lyrics.

He also sang 'Only When I Look Into My Eyes', and 'Up Down' which was also sad song but then surprised the audience with a cover of John Mayer's 'Slow Dancing In A Burning Room.

The show will not be completed without the most anticipated song 'Outside' and the fans outsing the band expectedly after saying their goodbyes before performing it.

Trevor couldn't stop expressing how amazing the fans were and they're one of the reasons why he keeps writing and making songs that everybody can relate to with any emotions they want to feel.

Universal Records Philippines Forges Partnership with SHOW Korea To Empower he P-Pop Scene

Amid massive demand, popularity, and influence of Pinoy Pop or P-Pop right now in the landscape of the Philippine music scene, the home of the finest Original Pilipino Music (OPM), Universal Records Philippines along with SHOW Co., Ltd. have agreed to form a strategic partnership to further strengthen its hype and exposure here in the country.

It also aims to normalize giving the best possible talent and entertainment in today’s mainstream local and even international scenes, followers and supporters of P-Pop while contributing in promoting the one-of-kind Filipino culture and artistry as well.

Present at the contract signing ceremony were Universal Records Operations Manager Peter Chan, Managing Director Kathleen Dy-Go, along with ShowBT Korea, SHOW Korea, and SBTown Philippines CEO & President Geong Seong-Han, also known as Tatang Robin, with Ethan Yang, and Adie Hong.

It’s not a secret that Universal Records has been the major record label which can be called the pioneer in promoting and supporting the rise of K-Pop music here in the country since the mid-late 2000s. From selling CDs and spearheading shows, the label had been there and done that. And right now, it tries to remain at the forefront of innovative promotion of these kinds of music, as well as bridging the gap between different cultures.

UR’s Kathleen Dy-Go believes that there are a lot of talented individuals here in the Philippines who can be “idol material” and it is high time for these people to be exposed to high quality and intensive training, while acquiring the commendable discipline that Korean agencies instill in their trainees.

“It’s such a great honor for the label to acquire a partnership of this caliber. We promise that we’ll work very hard for the potential groups that we will be launching along with SHOW Korea and SBTown Philippines and of course, we have a lot of surprises in store for all of the P-Pop fans out there,” she says

For the beloved Tatang Robin, it’s finally the right time for SHOW Korea, SBTown Philippines and UR to make this partnership happen so he approached the label first this time around. Both easily agreed to have an immediate meeting since both parties are interested and share the same vision.

“I want to express my gratitude to Universal Records because it did not take long for the label to agree to this amazing partnership. It was quick,” he shares.

As a great CEO himself, Tatang Robin has an exemplary experience in creating a really great boy group, evident in his dedication in training and debuting SB19, who's perhaps the most popular P-Pop group right now. So now it’s a new challenge for him to create an ultimate P-Pop girl group that will be idolized by many P-Pop and K-pop supporters. Although he’s nervous, he’s optimistic that SHOW Korea and SBTown Philippines can pull it off, of course, with the aid of UR.

He explains, “I believe that it’s the girls’ era this time around here in the Philippine market. As you all know, the most famous groups in South Korea right now are girl groups. It’s just very common here in this world that there’s really an order for everything. So, I think this time is already the right time for the girl groups to be at the top. I hope that this girl group that we’re going to debut is the first to be nominated internationally, like in Billboard.”

“If only fans give their love and support just like they did before in SB19, I believe that it’s also possible. Most of the talents we have, they have been training for up to four years. The shortest is one year and seven months. And as you all know I don’t debut talents who are not yet ready,” he adds.

Looks like the fans are in for a treat in the coming weeks and months because of this exciting partnership.
