After a startling lack of promotions, fans of aespa have been rewarded recently with content from the girl group!
In early December, SM Entertainment announced that Red Velvet and aespa would collaborate on “Beautiful Christmas,” as part of the 2022 Winter SMTOWN: SMCU PALACE album.

The group’s combined visuals in teaser photos for the track went viral, with fans loving the visual explosion from aespa!
As promised, a music video for the track was released, where all nine women showed they are the best combination of talent and beauty!
After the track’s release, the members of aespa paired up to go live on Instagram. Karina and Winter went live together and had some hilariously cute moments while interacting with fans.

Giselle and NingNing‘s live was equally as entertaining, with the group responding to fans in multiple languages, playing with filters, and even spoiling part of their comeback choreography!

In one portion of the live, while reading comments, Giselle read a comment from a viewer saying that were yawning, implying that their live was not entertaining. She immediately responds in the most Giselle-like fashion, saying, “Ok, then we’ll go,” in a sassy manner.
She explains the comment to NingNing in Korean, who laughs out loud while Giselle repeats that they’ll leave in Korean before laughing herself.
While their reaction was funny, other fans have taken to Twitter to remind others to be polite during live streams.
