The Dream Academy, a collaboration between HYBE and Gefen Records, showcased original songs, including ‘Girls Don’t Like,’ ‘Dirty Water,’ and ‘All the Same.’ The finale stage was evaluated by Mitra Darab HxG CEO, Son Sung-Deuk HxG Chief Creator, and Charlie Christie Interscope A&R and Marketing Deputy Head, who decided on the final members. Sophia, the first selected member, expressed her gratitude, and Yoonchae, a Korean participant, tearfully shared her happiness about the unexpected debut. The group name ‘KATSEYE’ was chosen by the participants and holds special meaning. The members are now gearing up for their official debut, and a documentary chronicling their growth story will be released on Netflix next year.
