Elsewhere in the interview, Jennie also discussed about her decision to star in The Idol.
“I trusted director Sam [Levinson] to be collaborative with all the scenes that we would be working on together, because it was about the industry,” remarked the singer
What “fascinated” her to do the show was mainly because of music industry.
“I thought I could bring something to the role,” she remarked.
Jennie concluded, “It was an opportunity to just be myself and be brave. I didn’t really train for it, or prep anything. Sam wanted me to just be myself.”
