Christmas with asepa Dreams come true

Aespa (에스파; also stylized as æspa) is a Kpop girl group consisting of four members, under SM Entertainment. They debuted on November 17, 2020, with the digital single "Black Mamba".

The origin of the name Aespa is intriguing. It is a combination of "æ", which means 'Avatar X Experience', and "aspect", which means double-sided. Together the group tries to convey a message that you would be able to experience a new world through another avatar of yourself.
