K-Pop girl group aespa has been listed as the only K-Pop artist to be selected as Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Asia 2022 list. This spotlight has further proved the group’s global influence and power.
Making their debut in 2020 with the single ‘Black Mamba,’ the quartet is already one of the hottest girl groups in K-pop. Aespa’s most popular song is ‘Next Level,’ released in May 2021, with more than 215 million views on YouTube.
The group won Artist of the Year at the 2022 Golden Disc Awards, Best New Female Artist at the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards and Best Korean Act at the 2021 MTV Europe Music Awards. Aespa also became brand ambassador for Givenchy last year.
In addition, Korean actress Jung Ho Yeon from the Netflix show Squid Game, was also spotlighted on the list. On the other hand, aespa was also recently selected as the first K-Pop girl group for TIME’s Next Generation Leaders.
