TV Daily recently reported that BLACKPINK‘s Jennie has been offered a role on HBO‘s The Idol, co-created by Sam Levinson, The Weeknd, and Reza Fahim. And the series will star The Weeknd, Lily-Rose Depp, and Troye Sivan.
If Jennie accepts the offer, this will make her the second BLACKPINK member to feature in a drama series after Jisoo, who starred in the Disney Plus drama Snowdrop in 2021.
And understandably, fans are beyond excited at the news. Especially since Jennie has continually proven that she would make a talented actress.
In no particular order, here are six things that prove that “actress Jennie” is leading lady material.
1. Her professionalism
Jennie always gives her all to any shoot she does. The behind-the-scenes video of her filming her music video “SOLO” is proof of her incredible duality when the camera is on.

5. Her acting in music videos
Although Jennie has not acted in dramas or movies before, she always proves her acting ability in BLACKPINK’s music videos. She never fails to embody the concept and fully commit to the role.
6. Her acting in the iconic Paradise City advertisement
The closest that Jennie has come to an acting debut was for an advertisement for Paradise City. The advertisement had a whole storyline of Jennie portraying Cheongson, a princess in 1771 who escaped to the place of her dreams.
Jennie absolutely proved she was leading lady material with the commercial alone, giving her all to the advertisement.
Fans can certainly look forward to her acting debut.
