K-Pop girl group aespa is having a comeback with the mini album Girls, which will be released on July 8th. Previously, aespa released their first English single “Life’s Too Short,” on June 24th.
As part of their promotions, aespa is also holding their first offline fan meeting with fans on July 4th.
And an in-person showcase in Los Angeles on June 26th titled aespa Showcase SYNK in LA.
Fans attending the Los Angeles showcase received a typical email from Ticketmaster, giving useful information like what items they were allowed to bring inside the venue. And while the list looked normal at first glance, fans quickly realized that lightsticks were permitted items.

And there was even a design of a lightstick included, leaving fans to speculate that aespa might be releasing their lightstick at the showcase.

Although some fans are suggesting that the venue mistakingly assumed the K-Pop group already had a lightstick…
It looks like YT theater mistakenly thought aespa has a lightstick already 😭 https://t.co/rmKHxR8dqk

Other fans are hopeful that this may be a spoiler, especially since they took the time to draw a custom lightstick for aespa.
the little lightstick drawing is even custom designed so there’s hope we might be getting one soon plus it’s being permitted pic.twitter.com/fYOnwN882P

Regardless, hopefully aespa will be getting a lightstick soon.
