Today, we’re going to be reviewing Aespa’s debut with Black Mamba. A much anticipated debut from SM entertainment that features a seemingly unique AI concept mixed into their member lineup. However, it’s also a debut that has been plagued with accusations, such as plagiarism and many concerns about how the AI part of their concept could be used for nefarious means.
Is their concept too similar to KD/A, a kpop group from league of legends? Is their AI concept going to be an issue? Along with my review of the music video, choreography, song and more, I thought we could dive into these topics as well and also talk about why it’s familiar, why it’s not familiar, my thoughts, your thoughts and honestly everything in between. So if you're interested in this type of video, don't forget to subscribe, like, comment and share this video with friends you don't have!
But, before we get into the contents of this video, please keep in mind that this is just a series that I do for fun to discuss comebacks and debuts. I am not and do not accuse anyone of plagiarism in this series and I do like to make jokes while pointing out similarities, however, it’s all in good fun. I think it’s interesting to make reference to other works of art, and that’s all it is.
Ok, so for those you don’t know, a black mamba is a type of snake and yes I only know that because of Kill Bill. But interestingly enough, black mambas are actually not black, they are called this because when they open their mouths, it’s black. The music video starts out with all 4 members in this super colorful room with a bunch of blank tv screens, as well as some cute animations above them. We then cut to a more nature like scene but still quite futuristic or perhaps just unrealistic. It’s purple themed, we have trees that don’t really exist in colors and materials that I’ve never personally seen either. And with this, we’re presented with Aespa’s universe.
And I have to say, this universe that they created for Aespa is so stunning. The neon lights, how futuristic it looks, the colors, and especially the nature scenes as well. In terms of creating a specific world, this is a level of innovation that I’m so in love with. It’s something I’m really excited to see more of.
In terms of styling, I’m honestly going to go ahead and say it, it’s pretty innovative. I’m getting 2nd gen vibes, and here’s why. Back in the day, idols would wear things that you could make at home, some of the most ridiculous accessories, and trust me, I did make them at home. And I’m seeing some elements within Aespa styling where I’m like, I could make that and I think honestly it’s just a really fun aspect.
And the styling as well, is kind of a mix of this elevated, super fancy and elegant style, you know the sparkly elements, but then we have outfits that are just so colorful and fun. So I think they do a good job at mixing bright or elegant at the same time to create their own unique style. I do think they will end up being quite a versatile group, at least style wise from what I’ve seen.
