Who Are the New Members of Aespa?

When we last covered the rising Kpop girl group Aespa, we explored a bit about their backstory, debut, and what we expect to see from them in the future. To quickly recap, Aespa is the latest girl group to launch under SM Entertainment. For those that are familiar, SM Entertainment loves to create alluring backstories for their Kpop group, and Aespa was no different. For instance, EXO was created under the theme of supernatural beings, SuperM was heavily inspired by superheroes, and so on. Aespa in particular focused on the concept of digital space, something we can all relate to in this day and age. The Kpop girl group Aespa derives from the idea of Avatar Experience and Aspect put together. With that being said, the girls are known as Karina, Winter, NingNing and Giselle, with their Avatar counterparts known as ae-Karina, ae-Winter, ae-NingNing and ae-Giselle. We were so impressed with their debut, theme and overall hype they were attracting, that we expected them to achieve our list of the Top Kpop Girl Group of All Time

As avid Kpop stans ourselves, nothing makes us happier than to see the rise and domination of our favorite Kpop groups.
