On online communities and social media platforms, some students complained about aespa lip-syncing during their appearance at the Korea University Festival.

In particular, on May 27, there are several articles written by students at the university forum highlighting the aespa stadium, saying:

“Lip-syncing at a college festival doesn’t look very good. I don’t feel much excitement.”

Another student said:

“Member Winter was jamming during the lip-sync and people were clapping. I know Winter is good at singing, but it was like a dark comedy.”

The upset students who attended the event expressed their dislike that the quartet gave a lip-sync scene despite the expensive casting fee. Earlier, it was revealed that each artist participating in a college festival receives at least around 20 million won (US$16,000) for a 40-minute performance.

Students commented:

“How can you lip sync with this money? »

“I like aespa a lot, but I think it’s too much not to do it live.”

“I don’t know if it’s right to encourage lip-syncing.”

“They said they couldn’t do it (play live) during Coachella, and that was fine. But I think it would have been better to do so much live. I think the festival (of the University of Korea) should definitely be a live performance.”

What frustrates fans the most is that aespa is nothing short of top vocalists despite being rookies. SM Entertainment artists are actually known for their amazing vocals and live performances and the four-member group is one of them. So the students can’t figure out why they had to lip sync.

On the other hand, the “2022 Korea University Seoktap Daedongje” was held at Korea University Democratic Plaza in Seongbuk-gu, Seoul. AKMU and aespa participated in the festival. The latter went on to perform a number of their hits, including “Black Mamba”, “Savage”, “Dreams Come True” and “Next Level”.
