aespa guested on MBC FM4U’s “Kim Shin-young’s Noon Song of Hope”.
When DJ Kim Shin-young congratulated aespa on the release of their second mini-album “Girls” and asked, “What was the hardest thing during the music video filming?”. In response, Karina explained, “It was not easy for me to get on the motorbike”, adding “I was going to fix the motorbike a little bit but when we were about to take the full shot, found that it was already fixed. So I twisted and turned it and filmed several scenes with such vague poses but I was actually scared at that time. Since the scenes came out well, I’m very satisfied.”
Winter continued, “The filming went well for me but I was a little tired because of the waiting time. I ran out of energy due to the delays”. Kim Shin-young then asked, “Is your MBTI I?”, Winter answered “Yes” and burst into laughter.
In response to the question “People with MBTI ‘I’ need time for themselves and recharge their energy. Are the others all E?”, the rest of aespa members said, “Yes. We’re all E”, drawing laughter once again.
Regarding the difficulties during the music video shooting, Giselle said, “I’m similar to Karina. I filmed many scenes while sitting in the car, but it was not easy to balance while sitting on a heavy sandbag, although you cannot see it in the music video. It was really tired to try to act cool while doing some kinds of core exercises”. Ning Ning shared, “Rather than the music video, I found it harder for me to film Tiktok contents during the filming breaks. In the music video, I can just pose and lip-sync, but it was not easy to hold my phone and find the correct angle for Tiktok videos.”
When a radio listener asked, “I listened to ‘Girls’ and it’s such a powerful song. How did you feel when you first listen to it?”, Karina replied, “I can hear all kinds of music that NCT, TVXQ SHINee and other senior male groups performed in that song. So I thought about how to express it well”.
Later, Kim Shin-young mentioned Kwangya and said, “Max Chang-min said ‘I don’t know what Kwangya is, but I’ll follow everyone there’, Kyuhyun said ‘Kwangya is good, Eun-hyuk said ‘They created it well but it causes me a headache’, and Hyo-yeon said ‘I don’t understand anything about it but I’ll follow it’. Kwangya begins with aespa, so what does it mean to aespa?”. Karina responded, “It’s a place for us to walk around”.
“Kim Shin-young’s Noon Song of Hope” broadcasts every day on MBC FM4U (91.9 MHz in Seoul area) from 12 p.m to 2 p.m, and it can also be viewed through PCs and the smartphone app “mini”.
