It turns out that the 4 real members and 4 virtual members of aespa are not as close as fans thought.
In a recent interview with E Now’s Sakshma Srivastav, 4 aespa members appeared as guests to share many interesting stories surrounding the group’s AI concept.
One of the questions aespa were asked was about the relevance of their concept, and what their relationship with their ae-members was like! At that time, Giselle revealed that the relationship between aespa and ae was not very close.
Specifically, Giselle said: “If you look at the lyrics from our debut song “Black Mamba” until “Savage”, there was a villain that would always disturb our our “synk” with our “ae-members”, so we haven’t really had a chance to get too close with them yet. But if you see “Savage”, we’re kind of beating ‘Black Mamba’ and getting somewhere.“
She then added: “I think it’s getting us a lot closer to our “ae-members” as you can tell…we were dancing next to them [in “Savage”]. We actually got to see them and practice with them, stuff like that. But we’re still on the journey to getting close with them.”
Sakshma Srivastav also praised the group’s unique concept, “The concept of aespa is like a drama, there’s a villain and you are like superheroes. That’s great! I love it “.
