The new issue of Dork, featuring aespa, is coming soon – pre-order

We’re delighted to welcome aespa to the cover of Dork for our brand new September 2023 issue.

With their new English-language single ‘Better Things’ imminent, aespa are set to take over the world – both real and virtual. The first K-pop stars to take to the front of our monthly print magazine, they’re a genuine, 100% pop sensation.

You can pre-order aespa’s edition of Dork now, and it’ll dispatch before the 1st September, or subscribe and get the print edition sent directly to your door every month here.

aespa is the third of three cover acts for our latest edition, following up on our Reneé Rapp and Baby Queen editions. We’ll be revealing the packed full issue lineup at midday today (11th August), when the full issue debuts digitally.

If you like what we do, we’re making available a section of the site for those who wish to support us by signing up to a new monthly or annual subscription package. Different from our previous print-only subscriptions, the Dork Supporters scheme allows you to get early access to all our print content in digital form as soon as the issue launches, read digital versions of every single edition of Dork right back to issue 1, and get occasional exclusive extras too. You can sign up for digital-only or digital + print packages, which will give you immediate access. You can find more information here.

And don’t worry if you’re not signing up. You’ll still get everything you did before, as digital versions of our print content unlock to be read free of charge throughout the month. Enjoy!
