In a recent press conference held for the release of aespa‘s highly anticipated album, My World, the spotlight was shining brightly on Winter as she addressed the burning question on everyone’s minds – the intense competition among 4th generation K-pop girl groups. With girl groups like IVE, Newjeans, LE SSERAFIM, (G)I-DLE, and aespa themselves all vying for the top spot, Winter’s response showcased the group’s unique perspective on the matter.
Aespa’s latest single, “Spicy,” served as the album’s title track, embodying the vibrant essence of a scorching summer anthem. However, the heat was not only felt in the music but also in the fierce competition that continues to push boundaries in the industry.
When asked about the intense rivalry, Winter gracefully sidestepped the notion of competition and instead emphasized unity within the K-pop community. Her words resonated deeply with fans and industry insiders alike.
We don’t think this is a matter of competition. We believe that the more people who spread K-pop around the world, the better it is for all of us.

This refreshing perspective from Winter is a testament to aespa’s dedication to collaboration and support rather than viewing other groups as rivals. It exemplifies their commitment to the greater goal of expanding the global reach of K-pop and sharing the joy it brings.
Among the 4th generation girl groups, IVE has made waves with their addictive music, captivating audiences with their megahits “After Like” and most recently, “I AM.” Newjeans has gained attention for their refreshing approach, bringing a fresh breath of air to the industry through songs like “OMG” and “Ditto.” LE SSERAFIM has caught the public’s eye with their powerful performances and intense visuals, while (G)I-DLE continues to dominate with their fierce charisma.
Aespa, on the other hand, has taken the K-pop world by storm with their groundbreaking concept of avatars and real-life members, captivating fans with their colorful universe, futuristic visuals and catchy melodies.
While all of these groups are undoubtedly strong contenders for the number one spot, Winter reminds everyone that there is room for all to shine. Rather than focusing on competition, aespa and their fellow idols are working towards the collective goal of promoting K-pop to the world.
In an era marked by fierce competition, it is heartening to see aespa’s Winter championing unity and camaraderie among the 4th generation K-pop girl groups. By encouraging collaboration and celebrating the success of others, aespa sets an inspiring example for the industry and their fans.
