“One who wants to wear the crown, bears the crown.” This quote is perfect to describe the emotional journey of BLACKPINK’s Jennie. As the most famous member of BLACKPINK, the pressure she has to endure cannot be described in words. Jennie’s path to becoming a “YG princess” is not a road that is only filled with flowers.

A glorious career 

Jennie was born in 1996. She had time studying abroad in New Zealand. She comes from a well-off family background, but she accepts a challenging life. Passing YG’s audition, Jennie, like many other trainees, spent most of her youth in the practice room.

Jennie’s talent soon impressed YG’s producers. Before officially debuting with BLACKPINK, she was featured in the releases of her seniors such as That XX and Black of G-Dragon or GG BE of Seungri. Jennie is the “ace card” that YG wanted to introduce.

Jennie and BLACKPINK are the revolution of the K-pop industry. The 4-member girl group hit big right from their debut with Boombayah and Whistle. They don’t have frequent comebacks, but everytime they do, their impact is amazing. Not only taking over domestic digital music charts, BLACKPINK’s songs also made waves internationally, breaking records left and right.

Stay strong in the face of challenges

Every path to achievement is fraught with challenges. Jennie is subjected to public criticism despite the fact that she has done nothing wrong. Anti-fans believe that the company favors the female idol too much, that she is given exceptional performances, and that she is provided the best outfits.

Netizens think that YG is trying to turn BLACKPINK into Jennie and friends.

Jennie also faced backlash as a result of rumors of school violence, accusations of bullying fellow group members, and dating news. V (BTS) unintentionally followed Jennie on Instagram not long ago, resulting in a barrage of unwarranted criticism aimed at her. Even when she couldn’t perform to her full potential because she was tired and injured, Jennie still received hate.

Facing many difficulties, Jennie seems to be used to it.  However, the sharp words from the public still hurt the heart of the BLACKPINK member. 

Jennie once read negative comments about herself during the livestream. She was on the edge of crying at the time, but she managed to keep her emotions under control. Another time, she made the audience worried when she confided in an interview with Star Road: “I want to throw my phone in the ocean and disappear so no one can find me.”

However, Jennie has become more and more successful after anti-fans tried to beat her up.  The female idol has achieved good results in both music and fashion.  Her fame and fortune is the dream of many people.

Jennie won overwhelmingly in the female idol brand reputation rankings in 2021. The female idol’s name also appeared in the list of “The most powerful celebrities” made by Joy News 24.  These things are enough to prove Jennie’s charm.
