Catman was filmed in 2016 in Korea and was originally set to be released in 2017, which was then pushed back to 2018 and later 2020. There was no official explanation given as to why the original release date was delayed so many times. Fans suspect it had to do with the Chinese Hallyu ban, even though it began to lift that same year.

The movie will follow Sehun’s character, Liang Qu, and his roommate Xiao Wan, played by Janice Wu. Xiao Wan is described as “an honest, confident woman” who develops an app that allows humans to translate cats’ meows. Liang Qu (Sehun) is the cold yet charming lead with a secret: he can transform into a cat!
