BLACKPINK’s Jennie And Lee Jung Jae Are Beaming In Meaningful Selfie Together
On November 14, Lee Jung Jae uploaded to his Instagram some photos from the 2021 Art+Film Gala that was held on November 6 (local time). One of the photos is a selfie he took with Jennie at the event (see top photo).
At first glance, it may seem that Lee Jung Jae and Jennie have nothing in common, as they are active in different fields of the industry, but the two celebrities have a special connection that stems from Jennie’s name. During an appearance on the JTBC variety show “Knowing Bros” last year, Jennie revealed that her mother, a fan of Lee Jung Jae, had named her Jennie because it sounded similar to Jae Hee, the name of Lee Jung Jae’s character in the drama “Hourglass.” Jennie shared that she told Lee Jung Jae about the story when she met him briefly.
After that, Lee Jung Jae revealed during an interview that he watched BLACKPINK’s documentary “BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky” and became a fan of the group.
For the past few days, Lee Jung Jae has been posting photos taken at the gala with various celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Elle Fanning, and Eva Chow.
