Giselle also confirmed that they were invited to attend the concert. Some fans had wondered if the girls purchased the tickets or not.

It’s so cute how aespa managed to attend blackpink concert even after a long flight to show their support. This being their first non SM artist kpop concert too, my aespink🤍

According to Karina, they also met BLACKPINK backstage. Sadly, we’ve yet to see any photos from this adorable meetup. Fingers crossed though! We love to see pretty girls hang out with each other.
