In light of the recent announcement of a full-length English album from the popular K-pop girl group Aespa, SM Entertainment, one of South Korea’s most prominent entertainment labels, has come under fire.
As part of the label’s presentation of their projects for the first quarter of 2024, this plan was revealed, prompting a rush of responses from both fans and detractors.

But SM Entertainment is getting some flak for letting Aespa release a full English album. Fans are upset that despite Aespa’s debut in 2020, they still haven’t published a full-length Korean album.
Korean fans were quick to voice their opposition to the strategy. The prominent idol group, who debuted in 2020, has been criticized for not releasing a full-length album in Korean. On Twitter, several customers vented their frustration at the label’s decision not to release a full-length Korean album.
Here are some tweets by fans who don’t like this idea:
