Jennie – BLACKPINK First Member
Jennie is the first member of BLACKPINK to become a trainee at YG Entertainment. Jennie moved to New Zealand from Seoul as a student at the age of 10. When she was just a student at ACG Parnell College in Auckland, New Zealand, she was interviewed for a documentary program on network MBC, which made her the first person to ever appear on television. Jennie explained in an interview that she listened to a lot of K-pop music when she was in New Zealand and wanted to be an artist.
When she was 14, her mother prepared to move to the United States to give Jennie more international education and to make her a lawyer. Jennie told her mother that she had dreamed of becoming a ballerina since childhood and wanted to pursue a career in music the following life. Her parents agreed to let her return to Seoul to pursue her dreams.
Jennie Auditioned with YG Entertainment
That same year, she took Rihanna‘s “Take a Bow” to an audition with YG Entertainment(the company which she had wanted to join while living in New Zealand). And she successfully signed on as a trainee with YG Entertainment in August 2010.
She initially auditioned as a singer during her internship, but YG leaders convinced her to train as a rapper as well after learning that she was one of the few trainees who spoke English. (Jennie, who lived in New Zealand before moving back to South Korea in 2010, is fluent in English, Korean and Japanese.) Jennie received a lot of attention and even gained some fans in 2012 for her role in G-Dragon‘s music video “That XX.”
With this exposure, Jennie became one of YG Entertainment‘s most famous trainees. Later, she appeared on several YG Entertainment artist songs, such as Lee hi‘s “Special“, Seungri‘s “GG BE“, G-Dragon‘s “Black“.
When Jennie was confirmed as an official member of BLACKPINK, fans were excited to hear that she was finally making her debut. Jennie later mentioned on Knowing Bros that she thought she would never debut and that she was scared.
Kim Jennie has been a trainee for nearly six years — the longest among 4 members. Now, she is recognized as one of BLACKPINK’s singers and rappers. She was the first member of Blackpink to release an individual track, named “SOLO.” Her beautiful looks and sheer talent are beloved by fans and fashion brands.
