During the interview, the members were asked which “Next Level” cover was the “most memorable.” 

Ningning said she remembers Bada‘s cover of “Next Level” the best.

Bada was the leader, main vocalist, and main dancer of S.E.S., SM Entertainment’s first-ever girl group, so it’s no wonder that Ningning distinctly remembers Bada covering “Next Level!”

Ningning also mentioned that people said her voice was similar to Bada’s and said being compared to Bada was a “great honor.”

Karina chimed in to share that Bada gives the aespa members helpful feedback on their vocals to help them become even stronger singers. Bada also shares tips she used to practice and develop her own voice.

Karina also revealed that Bada showed them a “secret handbook” full of vocal tips and gave them lots of feedback on how to study singing and improve as vocalists.

Considering how strong of a vocalist Bada is, the handbook is sure to help aespa become even stronger powerhouses than they already are!
