Jennie, a member of BLACKPINK, recently shared her vision on 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 have the ability to ask questions via their own perspectives instead of just answering them, or just saying generic answers and stories that 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 that she hopes her current experience will accumulate so that she can become a better person in the future.
Jennie is also going to try her hand in the completely 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”.
About this, 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 across my entire music career. I believe that this opportunity will be extremely helpful to both my life and my idol image.”
