Aespa

Blurring the line between virtual and real, South Korean girl group Aespa pairs its four human members with their respective digital avatars, delivering an immersive experience that sonically falls somewhere between K/DA and BlackPink. Unveiled in 2020 as SM Entertainment's first girl group since Red Velvet, they made their debut with the single "Black Mamba" and released their first EP, Savage, the following year. A second EP, Girls, arrived in 2022.

In the months leading up to their arrival, SM Entertainment teased the concept of an avatar experience (the "a" and "e" of Aespa) bundled up as a pop group, revealing the quartet in October 2020. Aespa's four members are Karina (vocalist, rapper, and dancer Yoo Ji-min), Giselle (rapper and vocalist Uchinaga Eri), Winter (vocalist and dancer Kim Min-jeong), and Ningning (vocalist Ning Yi Zhuo), with avatar monikers adopting an "ae-" before the human counterpart's name. The first taste of Aespa's music landed in November with the bombastic dance-pop single "Black Mamba." In 2021, the group issued their first mini-album, Savage, which included the lead single of the same name. The group inked a deal with Warner Records the following year and issued their sophomore EP, Girls. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
