Netizens Discuss aespa Karina’s More “Mature” Look During Her Pre-Debut Backup Dancer Days

Her styling makes such a difference!

Karina has been in the spotlight a lot lately with her visuals and stage presence for aespa‘s latest comeback, “Spicy”. Between her iconic blonde hair and dazzling charisma on-stage, she’s definitely one of the “it girls” of the modern era of K-Pop.

With all of this discussion around her lately, some fans have been bringing up videos and performances of her back during her pre-debut days when she was a backup dancer.

It was clear during her trainee days at SM Entertainment that she had a lot of promise as a performer, and the company took advantage of that by having her share the stage with such huge names as SHINee‘s Taemin.

It was undoubtedly intimidating to be performing with such a legend as Taemin, but Karina held her own even back then.

Fans have also noticed that her styling has changed drastically since her trainee days, too. Back then, she had a different style of makeup — most notably sharper and more dramatic eyebrows — that many think gave her a more “mature” look despite her being younger than she is with her current, softer look.

It’s amazing how much of a difference styling can have in the appearance of a person, and while some fans have preference for one look over another, she’s clearly gorgeous in both eras!

The topic of her past days as a backup dancer was brought up on an online forum recently, and fans had a lot of praise to share about how she looked both then and now.

One thing is for sure — Karina definitely had that idol spark even as a trainee!
