While the rumour that Giselle debut with aespa thanks to her aunt’s friendship with Lee So Man is still circulating, some netizens have ‘dug up’ SM’s top trainee lineup
Before aespa officially debuted, information about “SM’s new girl group” has spread for many years, making netizens extremely curious about the names that will appear in the next new girl group of this famous Korean entertainment. Many trainees were believed to debut in the group “Red Velvet’s sister”. However, most of these trainees were eliminated and left the company to find a new direction.
In particular, the notable trainee lineup is 9 girls who were once considered SM’s most outstanding trainees in 2017. This lineup includes Park Jeongyeon, Xu Yiyang, Goeun, Jo Hyunsun, Yoo Jimin (Karina), Kim Minjeong (Winter), Kim Chaehyun, Ning Yizhuo (NingNing) and Kim Sungkyung (Lami).
In particular, Park Jeongyeon, Xu Yiyang, Goeun, NingNing, and Lami were introduced by SM in the SM Rookies trainee project. However, except for 3 members Karina, Winter, and NingNing who debuted with aespa, the remaining trainees have all left the company in the regret of fans. Many people think that if SM debuts a lineup of the above trainees, maybe SM will create a talented rookie in terms of visuals and entertainment skills.
However, there are also opinions that if they debut with this lineup, it will be difficult for SM to have a special rookie like aespa. It can be seen that with the virtual world concept, the 4 members of the group are performing very well their role in opening a new era of SM’s music.
In addition, many fans also think that Giselle’s presence is necessary because aespa needs a rapper with good skills like her. Besides, Giselle is also the one in charge of the English communication part of the group in international interviews. Although she is only trained for 10 months, since debuting with aespa, Giselle is still doing her job well. Therefore, there is no reason for everyone to regret the old trainee lineup as well as to doubt the success of aespa at the present time.
