Aespa’s “Next Level” has taken the world by storm ever since its release, even reaching the same status as SHINee‘s “Ring Ding Dong” as a song you shouldn’t listen to during exam season because it’ll get stuck in your head. Here’s a list of 10 K-pop idols who have been obsessed with “Next Level” just as much as fans are!
1. Kim Sejeong
Actress and singer Kim Sejeong sang “Next Level” during a livestream! She stated that the song is “really good,” and she listens to it often on her way to work.

The SEVENTEEN members have done the dance to “Next Level” too many times to count at this point, but the time S.Coups stopped eating and stood up just to do the dance had fans cracking up.
