Virtual influencers now make more money than human [VIDEO]



Video by Oh Jung-meen, Cho You-bin

Last month, the debut of SM Entertainment's new girl group, 'Aespa', drew a lot of attention.

The group attracted such special attention because the members debuted alongside their own AI avatars.

People were incredibly surprised to see AI avatars debut in the K-pop industry.

Lee Soo-man, the president of Aespa's agency, SM Entertainment, said:

"The group is what I've dreamed of, as it projects a future world centered on celebrities and avatars, transcending the boundaries between real and virtual worlds."

In fact, there are already virtual human beings, characters with such "personality" all around us.
