Actor Lee Jung-jae talked about his relationship with BLACKPINK Jennie.
Actor Lee Jung-jae appeared on tvN’s entertainment program “You Quiz on the Block” that aired on Jan 12th as a special segment called “Are there any benefits?“. He showed off his pleasant volubility by revealing his friendship with stars such as comedian Yoo Jae-suk, BLACKPINK Jennie and Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio.
Lee Jung-jae appeared in black leather pants, drawing attention. When MC Yoo Jae-suk exclaimed “World star”, he shyly said, “What’s wrong with you?” He also grabbed Jo Se-ho‘s shoulder, who succeeded in dieting, and twirled him around, “Oh, as expected, exercise.”
Lee Jung-jae then asked Yoo Jae-suk for help, “It’s hard to sit down because I’m wearing leather pants.” His holding Yoo Jae-suk‘s hand and trembling as he sat on the chair made everyone laugh. In the meantime, the actor expressed his ambition, “I’ll tell you a livelier and funnier story that fits the costume.”
Lee Jung-jae revealed his unexpected relationship with BLACKPINK Jennie, “She was close to Jung Ho-yeon. Jennie came to the set with a coffee truck when Jung Ho-yeon was filming ‘Squid Game’. The set went crazy at the news that BLACKPINK Jennie was coming.”
He then shared, “It was kind of awkward for me to sit close with her. However, Jennie approached me first. It turned out that Jennie’s mother was my fan.” It is known that Jennie’s mother named Jennie after Baek Jae-hee (Lee Jung-jae‘s character in “Sandglass“).
Meanwhile, Lee Jung-jae selected BLACKPINK‘s documentary “BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky” as his favorite work in a video titled “Squid Game actors’ favorite Netflix series” which was uploaded on Netflix Korea’s YouTube channel last year.
