SM Entertainment’s new girl group, asepa, will make their surprise debut in November.
On October 26 at 1 a.m. KST, SM Entertainment drew explosive attention from global music fans as they dropped a video and image of their highly-anticipated upcoming girl group’s logo. Later that same morning, SM officially announced the group name as aespa and revealed that they will be making their official debut next month.
aespa is a combination of “æ,” which comes from the words “avatar,” “experience,” and “aspect.” The name also symbolizes the worldview of “being able to experience a new world through another avatar of yourself.”
Starting with the logo, SM plans to reveal more information and its members one by one, heating up the atmosphere for their debut.
Meanwhile, aespa is SM’s first new group since NCT (debut in 2016) and their first girl group since Red Velvet (debut in 2014).
