A young lady with strong sex appeal and a captivating personality. She’s no damsel in distress because she’s a queen herself. The shining solo, Jennie Kim, is the lead singer and main rapper of the popular K-pop girl group BLACKPINK. Nobody can deny that the world is obsessed with Jennie Kim.
The ultimate IT Girl: Jennie Ruby Jane
Jennie Kim, born on January 16, 1996, was only 14 years old when she joined YG. But she has proven to many that she has a lot of potential. She spent six years training to become an idol. Before joining BLACKPINK, she collaborated with other YG artists like BIGBANG’s G-Dragon. No wonder she was called an “Ace” during her trainee days.
Jennie’s official solo debut was announced in the middle of October 2018. “Solo” debuted at the top of the Gaon Music Chart and won the triple crown by concurrently dominating the domestic download, streaming, and digital charts. The music video for “Solo” also became the most viewed by a female Korean solo artist on YouTube in a 24-hour period at the time of release.
She also made history in April 2019 when she performed at Coachella as the first Korean solo artist. Kim’s performance was “mind-blowing” and “beautiful,” according to Billboard, which featured it in its list of “The 10 Best Things We Saw at Coachella 2019.”
My fingers will probably become numb from listing the accomplishments of their group. However, BLACKPINK’s sophomore album Born Pink recently landed at the top of the Billboard 200. Becoming the first all-female ensemble to top the all-genre chart since Danity Kane’s Welcome to the Dollhouse debuted at No. 1 on April 5, 2008.
Jennie ‘Trendsetter’ Kim
She has earned the moniker “Human Chanel” and “Human Gucci” for her contributions to Blackpink’s fashionable image. Her wardrobe includes niche brands like Marine Serre and Richard Quinn in addition to Gucci and Saint Laurent. After considering her reverberating commercial influence, Chanel selected her as House Ambassador.
When Jennie performed her debut single “Solo,” the hairpins she wore in a five-by-five divider became known as “Jennie’s hairpins” and quickly went viral in South Korea.
In 2020, it was announced that Jennie had worked with Gentle Monster, a South Korean premium eyewear brand, to develop a collection called “Jentle Home,” inspired by her childhood experiences. Including eyeglasses, sunglasses, eyewear chains, and more, Jennie created all of the pieces herself.
This year, Jennie had formed a cooperation with German automaker Porsche and assisted in the design process of a custom car manufactured for herself, dubbed Jennie Ruby Jane in the model of a Taycan 4S Cross Turismo.
It was also announced this year that Jennie will make her Hollywood debut in the HBO television drama The Idol. Making her the first Korean idol to appear in an American drama series.
Jennie is currently on a ‘BORN PINK’ world tour together with her group. BLACKPINK will be having a two-day concert in the Philippines, next year on March 25 &26 at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
