Park So Hyun brought up the topic of how aespa came to sign with SM Entertainment before revealing what surprised her the most.

I was curious about which songs you auditioned with, so I asked you about it during commercials, and I was shocked by what Giselle performed. Let’s reveal it to our listeners. You sang this song written for guys?

— Park So Hyun


After raising curiosity among listeners, Giselle shared which song she covered for the audition herself.

I did a cover of NCT’s Cherry Bomb.

She then went on to explain why she chose that particular song written for male idols when there are many other songs for female idols out there.

I wanted to audition through rapping, and I wanted to choose a song from SM. And when I heard Mark’s rap part in the song, I wanted to copy him.

— Giselle

It was so surprising that Giselle chose to audition with NCT‘s Mark‘s difficult rap part in “Cherry Bomb” that she was asked to perform a few lines on the show.

Which she did, and slayed.
