One of the highlights of BLACKPINK‘s “Lovesick Girls” era was their appearance in SBS‘s Running Man. They had a fun-filled time playing games in three separate teams with the usual cast members.
An activity that highlighted their honesty and quick-witted natures was when they wore emotion-detecting ears, needing to keep calm while the other teams attacked them with questions. If they were lying, nervous, or excited, the ears would move on their own.
BLACKPINK’s Jennie had a particularly hard time keeping them to stay still while Jisoo and Kwangsoo asked her numerous things at once. It moved when she outed Lisa as the member with the messiest room…
…when she agreed that she didn’t run earlier in the day because she was too lazy to do so…
…and when she claimed she was the prettiest in the group.
The ears didn’t move, however, when Kwangsoo asked her, “Is there a guy you’re interested in right now?”
Without hesitation, Jennie answered, “Oppa!” referring to none other than the Running Man member himself.
Immediately, everyone could see just how flustered he was at her words, with his ears moving non-stop to prove his giddiness.
The other cast members couldn’t help but laugh their hearts out at the scene.
My gosh, hyung, don’t ask questions like that!

This wasn’t the first time Jennie and Kwangsoo were linked during Running Man. They were once partners in a 2018 episode where they braved a haunted house together.
Jennie even made him an acrostic poem from the syllables of his name—something which he still remembers until this day.
