Aespa called 'fourth-gen reps' after MMA success, second US TV interview announced
As the girl group, aespa bagged three awards at the 2021 AAA on December 2 and four awards at the 2021 MMA on December 4 this year, they are proving to be more than just any rookie group in the K-pop industry. The four-member girl group from SM Entertainment debuted in November 2020 and has been unstoppable ever since. Starting with their first big award for the year 2021, aespa bagged their first Daesang (Grand Prize) at the 2021 Asian Artist Awards becoming the first fourth-gen group to win a Daesang and also the first-ever girl group to do so.
At the 2021 AAA, aespa won the titles of ‘Rookie of the Year’ as well as ‘Hot Trend Award’ while also winning their first-ever Daesang, ‘Stage of the Year’, and the group followed that big win by giving fans a no-breather by taking four wins at the 2021 MMA (Melon Music Awards). Aespa won the awards for ‘Rookie of the Year’, ‘Top 10 of the Year’, ‘Best Group Female’ as well as their second Daesang of the year for ‘Record of the Year’.

Following that and the seven back-to-back awards in December, aespa initially announced that they will make their US TV Interview debut at ‘The Nick Cannon Show’ on December 10.
All thanks to the groups rising popularity, aespa will now have their first international interview with the talk show host, Trevor Noah at ‘The Daily Show with Trevor Noah’ on the American network, Comedy Central on December 7 in its live broadcast at 11 pm ET (December 8, 1 pm KST).
This will be aespa’s second official US TV appearance after the group made its debut with a performance on the ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ on October 15 when the group performed ‘Savage’ with their metaverse characters, ae-aespa.
Girl group aespa’s unrivaled success
As the four members of aespa, namely Giselle, Karina, Winter, and Ning Ning, all made their debut in a multi-verse concept in 2020 with their debut single, ‘Black Mamba’, the hitmakers followed it with two consecutive hits like ‘Next Level’ and ‘Savage’.
With their unrivaled popularity and topicality within a year of their debut, they are strongly proving themselves as representative of the fourth generation of K-pop by setting a high standard for all future groups and being a strong competition for all present contemporaries.
Given their unique concept of a ‘Metaverse Worldview’, aespa successfully builds its own colors through intense and addictive music as well as catchy but intricate choreographies making the group one of the hottest moves of 2021.
