The Lyrics

Reportedly, Dreamcatcher’s Villains is a project which is meant to promote confidence in listeners. Relatedly, this song’s title is an acronym which stands for “outfit of the day”. So obviously the intent, with the girls presenting themselves as these sort of fashion divas, is for the vocalist(s) to personify a supremely self-assured person, and one whose confidence is expressed through practicing what reads like a high-priced partying lifestyle. Or viewed from a different angle, the lyrics are by and large based on what we may define as standard hip-hop inspired braggadocio.

But considering that this is K-pop, there’s also a message that’s intended to be beneficial to the listener embedded amidst all of the boasting. And that would be along the lines of encouraging the audience, and let’s say females in particular, not to be afraid to express ourselves.
