How did netizen response to the AI member of Aespa official appearance
After more than a week of comeback, aespa will bring their new song “Next Level” to promote on weekly music shows in Korea. As expected, this afternoon, the rookie girl group from SM Entertainment will have the first comeback stage in this comeback when appearing on KBS’s “Music Bank”.
Previously, SM has “treatted” fans with 3 super quality performance videos, carefully invested with each video being a different background and performance outfit. Recently, the 3rd video in the series was released to fans
Aespa’s “Next Level” The Performance Stage #3 quickly received great attention from fans, recording more than 2.5 million views on YouTube in less than 1 day of release. However, also in this video, a special appearance was made, which is the 4 virtual characters (AI) that was introduced along with the concept of Aespa. Although only appeared for a few short seconds, the virtual characters have faced fierce opposition from the Korean online community, even a part of aespa fans.
In addition to the low graphic quality, many viewers frankly commented that the dance moves of the 4 virtual characters were too bad and unnatural, which accidentally ruined a great performance by the aespa members. Another note is that the AI character still rocking the same outfit and hairstyle since debut. The above reasons make Korean netizens believe that SM Entetainment is just wasting money in vain when “stubbornly” pursuing the concept of aespa’s virtual world.
“Why is this group’s avatar so ugly… Please stop wasting money on these AI characters ㅠㅠㅠㅠ”
“It looks like Lotteria from 2002 ㅠㅠ Really country graphics…”
“No but don’t these girls have any other clothes? They’ve been wearing it since debut until now”
“The 4 AI characters are really bad at dancing… I really don’t understand why SM has to do this”
“The virtual characters’ movements aren’t natural at all ㅠ Why are they wearing the same clothes all the time ㅠㅠㅠㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
“SM, please change their clothes… Also the hairstyle… Maybe these AI girls haven’t washed their hair since debut, why do they have the same hairstyle every day”
“The whole group’s avatars are ugly, the real members are prettier”
“SM is really wasting money on useless things… Please, we don’t want to see these ugly avatar characters, we just want to see the pretty aespa members”
“Why are the virtual characters so stiff… The movements aren’t natural at all”
“Ignore the other things but can SM let them change their clothes… What’s it like wearing only one outfit for months?”
“Someone said it before ㅋㅋ They said that just changing the costumes for the AI characters cost more than 10 million won ㅋㅋㅋㅋ”
“These AI girls are so bad at dancing.. They don’t practice.. Why is SM releasing incompetent idols like this”
“The funniest thing is when he’s still healing, he lets his avatar dance for about 5 seconds and then disappears ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I thought it was a stage incident or something”
“The quality of the graphics is so rustic… It feels like the graphics of the 90s”
“Recommend 4 AI girls to leave the group! I only support the 4-member aespa”
