The newly made metaverse community will be based on the group’s cultural universe and use songs from the group, including its latest album’s lead and title track, “Drama.”

aespa debuted in 2020 under SM Entertainment. It consists of four members: Karina, Winter, Giselle and Ningning. The group is known for songs such as “Next Level” (2021), “Savage” (2021) and “Spicy.”
