So I knew of their song from spotify, and saw pics around the place of the members but I now watched their MV and a few performances, and it honestly changed my mind.
From just hearing their song I thought well, maybe they can grow into something, but after watching the MV and stages i fully get why it has many views (even if you say its ads) its epic, and the girls, they have really strong personalities, they are also good on stage.. dont look stiff or awkward.. I remember when RV came out first.. I remember thinking 'What is this' But after hearing Aespa, I strongly believe they will ascend and reach a top level soon, 2 comebacks max they'll be second tier.
It's really the fact that they have everything, there is only one concern, I cant locate the rapper.. they need rap.. in this day and age rap is even more important than vocals, and without it their songs will be quite boring. They need rap if they want to get to a top tier level, it doesnt need to be amazing rap... just rap enough to make the songs fun.
But regardless from what I saw, I am literally so confident they will be the biggest GG to come out of SM besides SNSD, I've never been more confident...
So this was my first impression, brought to you. By me.
