SM launched its new Korean pop band “Aespa” which will have both real and virtual members.
SM Entertainment recently launched an all girl’s band “Aespa”. What’s special about Aespa is the fact that it has both real and virtual members. Aespa has 4 human members, Karina, Giselle, Winter and Ningning. It’s first virtual member is Ae-Karina. Ae- Karina is the virtual duplicate of Karina. She isn’t born but virtually created. Real members and their virtual avatars will contribute to and perform a music piece together. While only the real members can be seen in both online and offline appearances. Virtual members will be present on digital platforms.
Fans can interact with Aespa’s virtual members through their screens but not in real life. Both the real and virtual members can interact with each other, perform together and create a piece of entertainment that crosses the border between the real and the virtual worlds. Ae- Karina is a powerhouse of talent when it comes to vocal, rap and dance
SM is all geared up as Aespa will debut with a single “Black Mamba” on 17th November 2020.
