Aespa recently appeared on MBC‘s “Omnicious Interfering View”, which shows the group’s schedules during their comebacks, their daily lives, as well as the work of their managers. However, the show disrespected Chinese member Ningning and Korean-Japanese member Giselle.
In particular, “Omniscience Interfering View” subtitled Winter as the main voice of Aespa, when the role actually belongs to Ningning, which is a serious lack of investigation or blatant discrimination.
Additionally, footage from the show continued to show Giselle out of frame, angering MY and demanding that SM take action. Giselle was almost invisible in the group pictures.

Aespa has already been mishandled by SM Entertainment in the past. The agency sent them to a school festival without proper security. For this reason, the group was harassed by the students of the school, who wrote vulgarities about the girls and even put photos of Aespa for sale on social networks.
Netizens also said that as soon as Aespa debuted, malicious rumors spread about the members without SM’s intervention. They also complained about SM’s continued media play, leading to aespa being hated and dubbed “Karina and her friends” and “BLACKPINK Failed Copies” by anti-fans.
no cause wtf is sm doing … why tf would sm send aespa to an all boys school without proper security ?! their female manager was the only one who protected the girls from these nasty high school boys who dont have an ounce of respect for aespas privacy
