aespa hasn’t even officially debuted and member Karina already has a commercial ad (CF) under her belt! The impressive rookie recently starred in a showcase for Hyundai‘s latest car model, alongside EXO‘s Kai. The two pulled off an impressive dance performance on stage.
For those who have yet to watch the CF, the two mysteriously meet in a magical forest. Later on, they dance together on a darkened stage.
