Is it safe to say that Aespa could definitely be the leaders of the 4th generation?
I don't see why people should keep denying their potential when they have achieved so much and surpassed expectations with their debut.
We went from users discrediting their position in the 4th generation to Aespa winning their first music show award at debut and owning the title of the fastest debut song to reach 100m. In only a month. If it was any other group, that would be praised endlessly.
It might not seem like Aespa is popular on here because I think most MYs are on Twitter instead, but Aespa does have a large following that will eventually transfer to the public supporting them. Probably next comeback.
I think it's pretty impressive, actually that they have a bigger percentage of loyal fans (MYs) compared to casual fans. You don't see that often with girl groups. It shows that Aespa is a stan magnet and that Karina and Winter are massive stan attractors.
I don't think people should keep downplaying their success because they only have one song. If they are doing all of this with one song and during a pandemic, then imagine what they will achieve with a mini album. Hopefully, next comeback.
Aespa's popularity seems quiet now but I think we will start to see them rise even more during their first comeback.
