Jennie’s reaction at the moment she was introduced as “actress Jennie Kim” at Cannes Film Festival
When BLACKPINK Jennie was introduced as “actress Jennie Kim” at the Cannes Film Festival, she was embarrassed.
On May 22nd (local time), the 76th Cannes Film Festival was held at the Lumiere Theater in Cannes. Jennie joined as an actress in HBO’s drama “The Idol”, which was selected to be screened out of competition. Jennie showed off her beauty on the red carpet with Lily-Rose Depp, The Weeknd, director Sam Levinson and more.
In particular, after the screening of the work, the cast was introduced, and Jennie’s name was also called. It was a moment when she was introduced as an actress, not an idol.
A writer who attended the Cannes Film Festival captured this moment. According to the released video, Jennie smiled shyly along with the introduction.
Everyone’s attention was focused on the 180-degree difference compared to her charismatic appearance on stage.
Meanwhile, Jennie’s work “The Idol” is inspired by the life of pop star Britney Spears. It is a work about the relationships surrounding pop idols and the world of the music industry. It will be released on June 4th.
Aside from Lily-Rose Depp, it boasted a splendid lineup including Troy Sivan and Dan Levy. “The Idol” is attracting great attention in that it is Jennie’s first acting work.
In the series, Jennie plays the role of Dyanne, a backup dancer for the female lead Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), who dreams of becoming a pop star.
