BLACKPINK are currently making global headlines with their upcoming comeback, as fans from all over the world are excited about the release.
While all the members are currently enjoying massive success, their journey getting to this point wasn’t an easy one. A YouTube channel by the name of “BeBoss TV” took a brief look at Jennie‘s journey to becoming a BLACKPINK member, and found that it was quite a difficult one.
Jennie’s decision to become a trainee came at an early age, as she was originally going to move to the United States.
Once she considered her options, Jennie didn’t like the idea of living alone and thought about what she wanted to do with her life. After much consideration, Jennie decided that she wanted to become a singer.
When Jennie grew the courage to tell her mother, she was 100% supportive of Jennie’s decision.
Jennie soon became a trainee at YG Entertainment, but she ran into many difficulties.
YG Entertainment would do strict monthly evaluation tests to see if their trainees were improving.
Jennie also reveals that these monthly tests had to be created solely by the trainees.
It wasn’t just monthly tests that Jennie had to worry about, as she had to endure stressful weekly tests as well.
While most would find this extremely demanding, Jennie thought of it as a necessary part of her trainee life.
Jennie now appreciates the difficult times she endured as a trainee, as she feels that it made her a stronger person.
After over 5 years of training, Jennie officially made her debut as a member of BLACKPINK.
However, Jennie still experienced many hardships after her debut. Many netizens criticized her dancing skills, as they believed that she was a lazy performer.
Some netizens also attacked Jennie when she made her solo debut in 2018, as they believed that Jennie was getting too much favoritism from YG Entertainment.
Despite all this backlash, Jennie went on to prove how talented of an artist she is.
One of the main reasons Jennie was able to endure all these hardships is due to the fellow BLACKPINK members, as they’ve always been her biggest supporters.
Despite everything she’s accomplished, Jennie remains as humble as ever.
