The excitement continued! In the midst of the challenge, Karina gave Minji a special task: to distribute promotional stickers for “Armageddon”all around the HYBE building. The stickers humorously stated, “When extraterrestrials invade, those who are unfamiliar with ‘Armageddon’ will be the first to be consumed!”


During a recent live stream, Minji, always an eager participant, disclosed the confidential mission. She admitted, “My manager advised me against it,”but she couldn’t resist the humor and had to carry it out. Staying true to her word, fans soon noticed pictures of the stickers cleverly positioned throughout HYBE, even inside the elevator.


Upon learning of Minji’s successful prank, Karina showed her appreciation by posting on Dear. U Bubble. This lighthearted interaction between the two groups has only strengthened the already amicable relationship between aespa and NewJeans, bringing joy to fans worldwide.
