It’s exactly what a chaotic older sibling would do.

When aespa‘s NingNing needed her, leader Karina was there for her like the good friend she is. And she was there with the most hilariously creative solution to the issue.

The members of aespa made a splash as they attended the 2022 MBC Gayo Daejejeon on December 31. They not only made it onto the best-dressed list, but they also charmed fans with their celebration of Winter‘s birthday at midnight.


As if that wasn’t enough, the members also showed their wholesome friendship in many other ways. For one, Karina thoughtfully pointed out Giselle’s fans to her, proving she’s more than happy to see her members being shown love.

But MYs particularly loved it when Karina came to NingNing’s aid after the younger member reportedly voiced a concern that most people are familiar with.

MYs noticed that NingNing had a piece of confetti stuck to her forehead while she was onstage. She is far from the first idol to have had confetti get stuck on her head or hair, but as it turns out, this was intentional.

While they were onstage behind ITZY, Karina was spotted bending down to pick up a piece of confetti from the floor before she stuck it on NingNing’s head.

As soon as she did so, the members hilariously burst into laughter.

According to fans, Karina had stuck the confetti on NingNing after NingNing complained about a pimple on her forehead.

Later on, aespa met Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA, who hosted the event. Once again, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Karina was hilariously telling YoonA about how she stuck the confetti on NingNing, seemingly confirming that she had done it intentionally.

While NingNing still looked as radiant as ever, her concern was still definitely relatable. And Karina’s “solution” for it was definitely creative!

These two, along with their other members, clearly have the most chaotic and wholesome friendship!
