Winter and Karina, members of aespa, were nervous about working and playing with their elders.
Per Winter, the other members of GOT The Beat have more experience than them. By comparison, BoA debuted before he was even born. Meanwhile, the girls’ generation debuted nearly 15 years ago.
But despite her concerns, older members reportedly helped her and Winter when they started practicing. Karina shared the same thoughts and revealed that they grew closer through the project.
“We were able to talk a lot during the breaks and I received good advice from the members. Recently, we started a group chat where we would also share bits and pieces of our daily lives,” she continued.
GOT The Beat has yet to announce their next project, but the group will surely pick up another music show win soon.
