When Jennie then arrived at the set, the multiple-award-winning actor confessed that it was kind of “awkward” for him to sit close with the “SOLO” singer. However, Jennie proved her kind personality when she approached the actor first and started a conversation.

“My mother is a big fan. That’s why I’m Jennie.”

The veteran host and comedian Yoo highlighted, “(Her mother) was going to name BLACKPINK’s Jenny, Jae Hee, but she said it was Jennie because the pronunciation was similar,” Lee Jung Jae replied with a smile and conveyed how honored he is.
