A recent post on the online community Pann claims aespa is not on the same level as LE SSERAFIM, IVE, and NewJeans
The post, garnering nearly 90,000 views with 131 votes up and 232 votes down, reads:
“aespa’s episode recorded the lowest viewership rating on Knowing Bros among girl groups this year (1.634%). This year’s highest Knowing Bros rating for a girl group is LE SSERAFIM (2.8%)
Indeed, aespa can’t compete with NewJeans, IVE, and LE SSERAFIM.
In today’s global Spotify rankings, LE SSERAFIM has maintained its position for a month. aespa’s Christmas carol came out but immediately dropped out of top 200.
Melon daily rankings: LE SSERAFIM’s game collaboration song “Perfect Night” is in 1st place, aespa’s official comeback title track “Drama” is in 3rd place.
In short NewJeans IVE LE SSERAFIM >>> aespa”

Under the post, netizens jump to aespa’s defense and left comments:
- Knowing Bros itself is losing its novelty these days, honestly, who even watches it ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- aespa has a lot of 1st place records, but there are always posts on Pann saying that they seem to be not in the top tier every time they make a comeback. On the other hand, LE SSERAFIM, who has never ranked 1st on Melon daily until now, always has posts saying that they are in the top tier. Last time it was IVE’s comeback, now it’s aespa… Sigh, aespa, fighting.
- Obviously, aespa is in the top tier ㅋㅋ Honestly, if it were aespa, IVE, or NewJeans who has never been ranked 1st on Melon daily until now, suddenly claim to be in the top tier after achieving it for the first time and insist that they are in the top tier, they will be ridiculed severely ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Seriously, top tier female idols, fighting…
- Seriously, won’t there be a reality check if you boast about this kind of thing… Anyway, even if it’s like this, aespa dominates in terms of group achievements
- Just the fact that these kinds of posts are constantly coming up on the boards is evidence that aespa is in the top tier. When IVE made a comeback, there were posts flooding the board saying that LE SSERAFIM is doing better than IVE, and now aespa ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ you guys keep arguing by saying “LE SSERAFIM is better than aespa” while going back and forth between IVE and aespa.
