Following Winter and Karina, aespa has revealed its third member, Ningning, through teaser images that were posted on October 29 on the group’s social media accounts.
Ningning, who turned 18 this year, is from China and is said to have superior vocal abilities.
In addition, aespa posted a teaser video on their official YouTube channel on October 28, titled “MY, KARINA,” which captured the viewers’ attention by giving a sneak peak of a fictional futuristic world.
The video shows the real-world Karina connecting and interacting with her virtual-world avatar, ae-KARINA, through Synk and the two becoming best friends.
The teaser video also raises expectations for what stories may unfold in the future by showing ae-KARINA appearing in the real world and having fun with Karina through the help of an AI system called Navis.
SM’s new girl group, aespa, is expected to put on diverse and groundbreaking performances based on a fictional world in which you can experience a new world through your avatar, or another aspect of yourself.
