“She Told Me She Liked Me”—aespa’s Karina Spills That A BLACKPINK Member Reached Out To Her First

She’s a successful fangirl!

Aespa was recently spotted attending the finale concert of BLACKPINK‘s BORN PINK world tour.

They were seen actively enjoying the show, waving around their lightsticks…

…posting on their Instagram accounts…

…and generally looking happy all throughout.

It was an unlikely friendship considering that they belong to different companies and generations of K-Pop. Fans were curious about the connection between the two groups, with several lucky MYs asking these questions directly to them in a recent fan call. According to Giselle, aespa was personally invited to attend the BORN PINK concert.

We were invited before so we were really planning to go.

Ningning added in a separate call that they were able to meet BLACKPINK backstage.

Finally, Karina revealed that she has a close friendship with a specific member of BLACKPINK—Jisoo.

I got close to Jisoo unnie.

Though it is usually the younger artists who approach the older ones, this time it was the opposite. Jisoo initiated a meeting with Karina because she “liked” the other girl’s personality.

Unnie told me that she liked me and contacted me first.

They became even closer to each other without the public knowing. And like the good friend that she is, Karina made time to go to the encore concert of the YG Entertainment girl group in order to support her beloved unnie. She even stayed seated until the end despite having a packed schedule.

The members of aespa are certainly some of the most successful fangirls around!
