Jennie, a member of the girl group BLACKPINK, showed influence in unexpected places.
On the 20th (Korean time), the foreign media ‘Euroweekly’ reported a mischievous report saying, “Forget Elon Musk, only Jennie Kim can save Manchester United.”
The media reported that the stock of Manchester United (hereafter referred to as Manchester United), the Premier League (EPL) club, went up after BLACKPINK Jennie wore a Manchester United club shirt in the music video for “Pink Venom”.
This is the text describing the phenomenon that the stock chart of Manchester United, which went down after Tesla chairman Elon Musk said the announcement to buy Man United was a joke, has risen again after Jennie wore a shirt with the logo of Manchester United.
Upon hearing the news, a netizen said to overseas Manchester United fans, “These singers are South Koreans, and Manchester United legend Park Ji-sung played an active role in Korea. Most Koreans got to know Manchester United clubs and the Premier League because of Park Ji-sung.”
Another overseas netizen said, “BLACKPINK’s songs have good rap and costumes, but especially the chorus part. It’s going viral on TikTok and YouTube,” he said, leaving a review on BLACKPINK‘s new song.
Meanwhile, Jennie topped the list of the girl group’s personal brand reputation ranking chart in August, which was announced on the 21st. In addition, BLACKPINK is set to release its second full-length album on September 16.
