Jennie Ruby Jane Kim, or as she’s better known, the famous Jennie from the stratospherically successful girl band, BLACKPINK is one of the biggest names in K-pop industry right now.

The BLACKPINK’s rapper was born in 1996 in Seoul, South Korea, and after spending a few years studying in New Zealand, she moved back to Seoul with the intention of trying out for YG Entertainment agency, which put together pop groups.

In 2010, she auditioned, at aged 14, singing Rihanna’s Take A Bow, and passed, becoming a trainee of the talent agency.

Several years in music and dancing bootcamp followed, and in 2016, Jennie, alongside her other bandmates Lisa, Rosé and Jisoo, were introduced as BLACKPINK.

Meanwhile, when the cast of The Idol, an American drama television series created by Sam Levinson, Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, and Reza Fahim, was first announced, there were some stellar names attached to the project.

Starring Abel Tesfaye (AKA The Weeknd) himself, Lily-Rose Depp, Dan Levy, Eli Roth, Hank Azaria and the late Anne Heche.

Then, as if that wasn’t enough, they just kept coming: Troye Sivan, Hari Nef and finally, BLACKPINK’s Jennie.

The K-pop idol will join the show as her role Dyanne, a back-up dancer for the Britney-esque popstar, Jocelyn, played by Depp.

In The Idol’s first episode, Jennie’s character Dyanne is acting as a stand-in for Jocelyn, who leverages sex appeal as part of her personal brand.

With the help of a stage full of dancers, Jennie executes Jocelyn’s sultry, borderline scandalous choreography, and puts on an impressive performance unlike what we’ve seen from the series.

However, some more conservative Blinks weren’t so thrilled with how sexy things got, sharing their dismay on local message boards.

Controversial or not, for Jennie, and the show, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

As Jocelyn’s team says when a sexually explicit photo of her is leaked to Reddit: “She’s coming out of it more famous than when she came in.”

And so will Jennie.
