Watch Aespa's great performance at KBS Song Festival

The KBS Song Festival took place on December 18 with a deluxe lineup, among seniors of K-pop like BTS, the new K-pop band Aespa stood out. Scroll down to see Karina, Ning Ning, Giselle and Winter perform at this very special event.

  • Aespa is SM Entertainment's new girl group that debuted on November 17, 2020 with the digital single “Black Mamba”
  • Just one month after their debut, Karina, Ning Ning, Winter and Giselle are already participating in the most important stages in Korea and are even nominated for Rookie of the Year at the Seoul Music Awards, to be held in January 2021.
  • The song festival of the Korean Broadcasting System is one of the most important in this country, as it brings together the most relevant groups and solo artists of the Asian music industry.
  • This is one of the most important instances of promotion for artists of the K-pop genre and is one of the oldest galas in Korea, since its first broadcast dates back to 1965.

The Festival

K-pop idols.

This edition of KBS Song Festival was held without an audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, it has had a massive attendance of fans of the genre who have followed the performances of their favorite artists through social media.

The festival was hosted by TVXQ's Yunho, Astro's Cha Eun-woo, and Shin Ye-eun.

During the broadcast we had the opportunity to enjoy 27 performances in total between group and soloists, among them: BTS, Twice, NCT, Got7, Stray Kids and of course our Aespa girls.

K-Pop band Seventeen was unable to assist.

A major absence from the event was Pledis Entertainment's group Seventeen.

The boys were unable to perform because they did not receive their coronavirus test results in time for the concert.

This speaks highly of  Seoul Sports who were the organizers of the event that took place at KBS Hall in Seoul.

The red carpet was full of style and outfits alluding to the approaching Christmas.

Aespa's presentation

Aespa girls looked stunning at the KBS Song Festival's red carpet.

The 4 Aespa girls looked incredible in their presentation on the red carpet with a chic and elegant style that left everyone in love.

In addition to their incredible visuals, Karina, Ning Ning, Giselle, and Winter rocked the stage with their live performance of “Black Mamba.”

Personally I was hoping to hear a new single from the girls of Lee Soo Man's company, but I must admit that they are improving their moves and sound on each presentation.

Final thoughts

Ning Ning's look for the KBS Song Festival was really impressive.

It stands out among the four Aespa girls, the incredible voice of the Chinese member, Ning Ning who actually reminds me of Christina Aguilera's vocals, reaching incredible notes.
