aespa is a four-membered group under SM Entertainment, consisting of Karina, NingNing, Giselle and Winter. Stylised in lower case as æspa, the group’s name is a combination of the words “avatar”, “experience” and “aspect”. SM says the group would explore the theme of “experiencing a new world via the encounter of the ‘avatar’, which is your ‘other self’.
