How was Jennie’s cute TMI? Her personality is very different from her cold straight cat face. Jennie once fell down on the road but didn’t want to spill the juice that was in her hand so she fell down only with one hand and later got a pink cast. Also, she is so sweet to her fans. Whenever there is a fan meeting, she gets many photos taken by BLINKS and in the pictures, you’ll see Jennie taking care of her fans. For example, when it’s hot, she would turn the fan to BLINKS and also tells students off when they come to events instead of going to school.
