Aespa is SM Entertainment’s four-member K-pop girl group which consists of Karina, Ningning, Winter, and Giselle.

What makes them stand out are their AEs (æs) or virtual counterparts. Each member has their own avatar — AE-Karina, AE-Ningning, AE-Winter, and AE-Giselle. In fact, the “ae” in Aespa stands for Avatar and Experience.

These avatars have consistently appeared in the group’s music videos so far, including their debut song “Black Mamba” and their latest single “Next Level“.

With their new song “Savage” coming up, MYs are expecting another bop from SM Entertainment’s rookie girl group.

Will we be seeing these idols and their virtual avatars at the Wild Rift SEA Championship Grand Finals soon? Tune in to their performance on October 3.
