Jennie ranked 7th in the list of powerful celebrities 2021
Reacting to Jennie’s presence in this list, netizens left many controversial comments. Many people expressed surprise because Jennie really didn’t have any outstanding individual activities in 2021, but still got her name in the rankings. Meanwhile, 2 members Rosé and Lisa both had successful solos but “no door” to set foot in this top powerful artist.
Jennie let the remaining 2 solo members of BLACKPINK “smell the smoke”
Specifically, netizens commented:
– Kim Jennie is so good! Wish her career and position more and more developed and solid, love it!
– Almost 3 years without comeback, still the boss of BLACKPINK. Jennie is always top!
– Happy little friend Jennie Kim, coming days SOLO 3 years old, and there forward you comeback too.
– BLACKPINK even lost to Jennie, Rosé and Lisa are too old.
– Even YG didn’t have a move for the group to return to the music track or even have their own solo direction, the best thing is that Jennie didn’t even go to any Korean TV shows in 2021. Still on the top alone, ” Kim Trendnie” – The Korea’s It Girl is a real product at a really good price.
Netizens are surprised by Jennie’s huge charm in Korea
