On August 28, a press conference for the HYBE Labels x Geffen Records audition program ‘The Debut: Dream Academy‘ was held at the Geffen Records Studio in Santa Monica, California. 

On this day, the 20 participants of the audition program, selected from over 120,000 auditionees, introduced themselves to viewers for the first time.
