Giselle soon opened up about meeting BoA for the first time, and shared that she was surprised when she met her, because she expected BoA to be much taller than she actually was!

I was really surprised when we met her, because she was so much smaller in person! The way she fills the stage with so much power while singing and dancing really make her small figure unnoticeable.

Giselle then talked about the time aespa worked with BoA for the remake version of S.E.S‘s “Dreams Come True”, and commented on how her driven and focused energy while taking care of the smallest detail really stood out to her!

When we filmed the music video for “Dreams Come True,” she came to set and gave specific directions. She was so clear on how she envisioned everything. You could tell she knew every single detail that was going on behind the camera.

During my recording session with her, I realized that she’s very adventurous when it comes to trying different techniques. She encouraged me to experiment and told me if I don’t like it a certain way then we can always start again. I really admired that mindset. She made me realize I should be bolder and try new techniques like her.
