So, how come people still have a problem with Aespa's AI concept? It's the same exact thing that they are all doing, Aespa just isn't attached to a popular app/company.
All three groups are just using AI dolls to promote their music and members. It's all for aesthetic purposes.
Korea and Asia, in general love Zepeto, and they obviously like it when idols promote it. So, why does Aespa get backlash for their concept and knetz' saying that they are "encouraging sex dolls" etc?
Is it because their AIs are life-size or is it because it's coming from SM, a company known for "treating their idols like robots?"
Or is it because K/DA did it first when that's still so hypocritical to say? No one is hating on ITZY (good) for using Zepeto after Blackpink so why hate on Aespa for using a general idea of AI because they did it after K/DA? When K/DA was going to be AI no matter what because it's coming from a video game.
Nothing is wrong with Aespa's concept and I better not see another anti say "I don't like them for their concept. It's toxic" when your faves are doing the same thing, just a cheaper version of it.
Which isn't shade. It's just the truth. SM probably paid millions of dollars to make those AIs work but Zepeto is just an app that idols go on to make an avatar. Their companies didn't have to do anything except signing a contract.
Long story short: Zepeto is considered AI so why does Aespa only get backlash for it? Not, even K/DA gets backlash when they are targeted to the same demographic that probably wants to marry video game characters lol.
