Do you remember KATSEYE? The global girl group was formed by HYBE in 2023 after weeks on a competition program, where 20 female contestants participated in a K-pop-structured training. Now, the entire process is being released as a Netflix documentary titled Pop Star Academy: KATSEYE. Keep reading for everything we know about the upcoming doc series.

KATSEYE Netflix Documentary Release Date

The series will be released in summer 2024, however, an exact date has not yet been revealed.

ICYMI, The Dream Academy was the name of the competition program which created KATSEYE, and fans followed along the contestants journeys on YouTube, starting in September 2023 until November. Viewers were also able to vote for their favorite members via Weverse and TikTok, which played a crucial role throughout the entire competition.

According to Netflix, the documentary will “be a compelling portrayal of the journey to global stardom, including insight into the unique training and development program from HYBE and Geffen Records.”

“I have wanted to form an international group based on K-pop methodology for a while,” HYBE chairman Bang Si Hyuk said in a statement from 2023. “To do this I believed we needed a capable partner. When I met [Geffen CEO and Chairman] John [Janick], from the first moment, we both felt instantly that we had a connection, musically and creatively. I am very proud of the rich history we have made and the tremendous talent we have found. I am proud of the opportunities we have created within the K-Pop universe.”
