Sunmi looks absolutely stunning with her pink hair, and her new look reminds the aespa members of a very important character from the SM Cultural Universe (SMCU)!
aespa was the guest star on MBC Radio‘s Noon Song of Hope today, and the show was filled with mutual admiration and cute interactions between the K-Pop group and Sunmi, who was the show’s guest host.

sunmi’s basically a MY already. she’s like us, whatever aespa does, we’re all like “aw cute” and she’s doing the same too! although unlike us, she gets to see their cuteness upfront!! 😝

Once the radio show ended, Sunmi tweeted about the aespa’s members hilarious reaction to her gorgeous hair color. She tweeted, “My aespa friends saw my hair color and said it looked like Naevis! You are really serious about KWANGYA!”
에스파 친구들이 내 머리색을 보고 나이비스 같다고 했다! 정말 KWANGYA에 진심이구나!

In the SMCU, KWANGYA is the alternate dimension in which Black Mamba, the villain of the SMCU, lives. Naevis is an AI system that helps the ae, aespa’s avatars, to be seen in the real world so they can interact with the aespa members. The aespa members joined hands with Naevis to fight against Black Mamba in their latest music video, “Savage.”
Considering that all of aespa’s music videos have played a huge role in building the SMCU, it’s no wonder that Sunmi’s new fabulous, slightly futuristic new look reminded them of Naevis, and it’s great to see how much the aespa members love their concept!
