“The metaverse reflects reality. If our own reality is not sustainable, it would become difficult to sustain the possibilities of the virtual world,” member Giselle said after introducing aespa as a “metaverse girl group” for its use of four avatar members existing in the virtual world.

“The topic of sustainable development is urgent and we believe the next generation must support sustainable development goals in order to protect the world that we live in,” she stressed.
