Jennie, a member of BLACKPINK, recently shared her vision of becoming an “iconic” version of herself.
BLACKPINK Jennie was among the 6 models that decorated the 30-anniversary cover fashion magazine Elle Korea. In an interview with Elle Korea, she discussed her real thoughts about the definition of an icon.
In particular, when asked what makes Someone iconic, Jennie answered, “Someone who has their own opinions and thoughts. I believe one should only be titled ‘an icon’ if they can ask questions via their perspectives instead of just answering them or saying generic answers and stories people want to hear.”
Currently, in Korea, Jennie is considered an icon herself. Nevertheless, she expressed huge ambitions.
Regarding what she’s expecting of herself in the future, Jennie revealed that she believes she’s still “learning and experience” and hopes her recent experience will accumulate to become a better person.
Jennie will also try her hand in the entirely new field of acting via the HBO series “The Idol,” where she will co-star with famous pop stars such as The Weeknd, Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp, and Troye Sivan. The Hollywood series is also produced by Sam Levinson, who’s behind the success of “Euphoria.”
Jennie said, “Acting is truly a challenge, I had to adjust to a new environment, and it was an experience I have never been through in my entire music career. However, I believe this opportunity will benefit my life and my idol image.”
