A video showing BLACKPINK’s Jennie (제니) trying to hold back tears during the group’s fan signing event is currently gaining traction on Twitter. The girls attended the “BORN PINK” offline meet-and-greet event over the weekend, when they were able to interact one-on-one with a few lucky BLINKs.
Despite the ongoing rumours and scandals involving her, the 26-year-old still appeared in front of fans with admirable professionalism. In the video that went viral online, Jennie was seen communicating with a fan. She was listening closely to what the fan had to say before getting visibly emotional.
The female idol responded to the fan’s encouraging message with a pout, seemingly trying to hold back her tears. At the end of the video, she smiled brightly, mouthed “thank you” and swept her hair back. Afterward, the fan who met Jennie in person took to Twitter to share what went down during her meeting with the BLACKPINK member.
According to the fan, “(I told her) that we will always root for Jennie no matter what she does; to always look ahead and just be herself. Jennie said it was cool before she got emotional and said, ‘Don’t make me cry.’ From this point, I couldn’t say anything. I just kept saying ‘you can do this Jennie… Jennie Kim, always be happy!'”

The past couple of months has not been an easy one for Jennie especially. The “SOLO” singer was exposed to privacy violations after several personal pics of her were leaked by an anonymous Twitter user. Just recently, a photo of Jennie in a bathtub also went viral online.
That being said, YG Entertainment continues to remain silent about the matter.
