aespa Flash Fangs, Lift Cars, Show Off Superpowers in Futuristic ‘Supernova’ Video

K-pop girl group aespa prove they are stronger — and fiercer — than the rest in the stunning visual for their “Supernova” single. The first track from the four-woman act’s upcoming debut full-length studio album, Armageddon (due out May 27) is a high-energy bop on which members KARINA, WINTER, GISELLE and NINGNING sing about being “so hot hot hot” while ripping the side mirrors off parked cars, floating in the air, flashing their vampire fangs and lifting up vehicles with one hand.

The dance floor-ready track that fuses hip-hop beats, EDM rhythms and smooth pop vocals seamlessly mashes up English and Korean as the women travel through a series of perilous situations while also busting out some classic choreo on a green screen stage in a black void.

Armageddon is the follow-up to 2023’s Drama – The 4th Mini Album, which debuted at No. 33 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The group was most recently featured on the Rebel Moon – Songs of the Rebellion EP, which also contained original songs by Jessie Reyez, Tainy, Tokischa, TOKiMONSTA, Black Coffee and Kordhell inspired by Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon movie series. aespa will kick off a run of SYNK: Parallel Lines tour dates on June 29-30 with two nights in their native Seoul, South Korea.

The group’s label, SM Entertainment, revealed last month that WINTER, 23, underwent preventive surgery to treat a collapsed lung. In a statement, SM said that the procedure was intended to treat a pneumorthorax, a condition in which air accumulates in the chest, applying pressure on the lungs and possibly leading to collapse. “Winter is recovering from recent pneumothorax surgery. As the disease is prone to recurrence, the decision was made as a preemptive measure based on the opinions of the medical staff after sufficient discussion,” read a statement from the label.

The statement noted that WINTER’s recovery is a priority and that “future schedules will be made with Winter’s recovery status as the top priority.” At press time it was not known how, or if, the surgery will impact WINTER’s ability to join the group on promotional rounds.
