[Instiz] All-around perfect trainee if it wasn't for their past?


YG New Girl Group Kim Jennie

Source: Instiz

[1] "Honestly, her voice is really nice. It's exactly the type that I like."

[2] "Past is the past... I really adore her."

[3] "Yeah, I don't really think of her that well because of her past."

[4] "The way she looks, her voice, and everything else are all the style I fall for... if it wasn't for her past, she would be Top 2 in my heart."

[5] "I wonder if her past was true ㅠㅠ Why did she do that ㅠㅠ"

[6] "All YG trainees seem to have such a strong force to them, they all become my girl crush.  I mean, just look at 2NE1..."

[7] "Her vocals are my style too..."

[8] "I loved 'Black'!  I really like her voice there"

[9] "I'm waiting for Kim Jisoo to finally debut"

[10] "I really don't like bananas."
(TN: Pretty offensive term, literally yellow on the outside, white on the inside.  Similar to 'white-washed')

[11] "I do like her vocals but personally I wasn't that impressed when I saw her performance as a featuring with GD for 'Black'.  At least she's still got skill when I watched other videos of her on YG-Life though her past throws me off a bit."

[12] "Is she a foreigner or is she Korean?"

[13] "The source of her bullying rumour was from Nate Pann and the only evidence was of a graduation photo.  I don't think there's been any incidents where we can definitely say she's got bad character.  She hasn't even debuted yet."

[14] "Are they sure her rumours were true?  There's been so much false information going around even with other idols so I'm curious."

[15] "It's scary that people can just say 'The past is past'.  How can you say that when someone's been hurt in the process of it?"

[16] "First off, I'm not that impressed by her even when I listened to 'Black'.  I actually like and find Jang Hana's voice more unique."

[17] "She's missing out on the most important quality then."

[18] "No matter if she's got everything, if she doesn't have good character, I can't like her."

Ofcourse you cant just said "past is past" when someone has been hurt before. But you cant hate her only because of her past and turn off her whole career.

엿먹어 said...

Wait, what happened with her past? I'm not updated with this kind of stuff :\ All I know is she has bullying rumours but are there actual proof? 'Cus Koreans seem to really believe it as true/fact?


Anyway, she's pretty and I actually liked Black a lot... but I don't like her rapping too much! Just personally for me.

Her face look like Naeun, but with slim face And more charisma aura. Her voice isn't good but its okay.

princekyung said...

They go around praising "good character" yet the way they put down celebrities through witch hunts and negative comments... smh. I don't know if it's true or not so I won't judge her for it. But if it's not true, I wish YG would do something to at least clean up her image.

princekyung said...

Is she a vocal or rapper? Or both?

isabellmiao said...

Actually the banana term is white on the inside and yellow on the outside. And as an Asian, I've never thought of that as an offensive term. None of my friends thought it was. It just literally means I'm Asian but I have a Western way of thinking (not conservative). I even refer to myself as a banana sometimes when meet new friends because I can't read Chinese even though I'm a Chinese. It's easier to say "I'm a banana" rather than go one big round to explain why I can't write Chinese. And all my friends did the same thing. I hope people can stop making everything seemed like it's racist and offensive.

Amanda Rachel said...

Why people assume as if Jennie bully rumor were true??? Smth at those dumb people. Look at what they done to lot of other idols like NamTaeHyun. Please go reflect urself netizens!!!

kissmeloveme said...

Then that's it. It's about her alleged bullying scandal. Not sure if it's true or not. Someone once told me that it was true because she knows her but I'm just like " okay if it's true then I want to see proof. Don't accuse someone of something and then not show proof. They said they didn't want to get hate from yg Stan/fans so they opted not to." Which is a cop out IMO.

princekyung said...

In Korea, it's considered very offensive. It's never been used as a positive term there. It might be different in other countries I guess but banana there is def not a good word to describe someone

Idk said...

But Nam Taehyun's was proven to be false and the person who posted it apologized. Did that happen to Jennie's? I heard there were multiple account of it..

Apple said...

I agree..they need to show proofs if those are true stories. I don't get why some people manage to spend their time making rumours and ruining someone else's life instead of minding their own business.

Guest said...

I'm not saying Jennie is definitely for sure a bully BUT how can someone have "proof" that they were bullied. Like my little brother was bullied in grade school but he doesn't have proof of it, not like he can take a selfie while being humiliated? Take a video? In that situation? I don't know how these alleged 'victims' are supposed to provide proof that they went through those things. Now that's not to say that Kim Jennie isn't innocent but think about it from the victims' perspective, how are they supposed to "prove" what happened to them?

Apple said...

I think YG pushed her to be more of a rapper first than a vocal since YG posted the video of her rapping, then she rapped in Lee Hi's song called "Special". Well she can sing, maybe not better than the other trainees but she can. I mean, almost all YG rappers can also sing xD

Apple said...

So we're supposed to believe every bullying rumour that is only based on a graduation photo? How is that fair to the person who is rumoured? I don't know how they can prove it either (they can probably report it and have it investigated like Seo Jisoo's case) but people should not just believe on every rumour based on little (or no) proof. If the alleged victim really wanted justice he/she would've come out already with other statements supporting the story after he/she said that Jennie bullied him/her. But we haven't really heard anything on this matter since forever right? People just like making rumours, that's obvious. I will not be surprised that when she debuts those old articles will pop up again.

Nana Konate said...

[14] "Are they sure her rumours were true? There's been so much false information going around even with other idols so I'm curious."

This !!!!

commedesfuckdown said...

There was only one account about it. If the bullying rumor is true, I hope more students who can prove the victim's story will step up. According to that account, Jennie's bullying behaviour happened in class and cafeteria in front of other students. So it possible to find a witness if its true.

Jenizz | pinkcrown said...

[17] "She's missing out on the most important quality then."

Huh? Of course, if the rumors are true, you ccan't just say 'past is past' BUT people change and realize their wrongdoings...

Guest said...

I'm not saying you should believe the rumour but you should also think about how hard it is for the victim, if the rumours are true, to prove their side. They're powerless. Seo Jisoo's case is different than this... How can you tell someone who was bullied back in school to report it to the police? Do you think the police would actually care about it? Who would believe them? They don't have substantial proof for the police to investigate into the matter. I'm just saying it's probably just as hard for the victim and we don't know who's telling the truth, but we can't just dismiss the victim's words as if it's nothing.

Kidari said...

I found like people like to judge you even though they don't know you and they are not even perfect themselves. So what i will say if you didn't witness and don't have any idea if it true or not ,then you have no say . If you did witness then pray that she changed , talking bad about her just won't make any difference but making you condemning someone when you are not perfect yourselves

eaugh said...

Idgaf about those rumors, I'd need more proof before believing someone should be subjected to a witch hunt. That being said, she hasn't impressed me with anything she's done so far. I mean I don't think people like GD, Cl and BI are flawless (far from it, actually) but considering that this girl is in the same "YG's favourites" category with them, she lacks a lot. I hope she's improved. Jennie being marketed as the ace of the group with those rapping/singing skills is a little telling about the state of the whole group tbh.

Apple said...

I said maybe, maybe they can report it, whether to the police or to the school's disciplinary committee. And no, apparently since the rumour came out no one has dismissed the alleged victim's words (see, almost everyone mentioned her past). That's the problem. Once an idol (or trainee) gets a negative rumour, even when they're proven false, no one will forget about it. People are still mentioning drugs in GD's articles even though he wasn't proven guilty.

soluizb said...

Actually theres multiple accounts of this. before gd feat. And mv. the accounts are in english with quite a lot of details eventhough the articles themselves didn't bring in much views. Well she's pretty nugu. I also believe this is one rumour that started among inetz first. That was how we know even the school she attended when yg only released a pic.
I rmb the ppl who says those things are not anonymous either.
But well... you can try to search up old articles. Its interesting. Anf yes there is no way to know for sure

commedesfuckdown said...

I mean, having lots of friends from NZ I find it hard to believe that Jennie was allowed to act such way in front of many students. Its pretty strict there From what I have heard. The school she attended apparently known for its good reputation. NZ in general have such a great education system, so one asian girl acting all mighty in front of the crowd sounds like exaggeration to me. But I wouldnt dismiss the idea it ever happened, in that case, yeah she sucks.

commedesfuckdown said...

Mte. The rumors are annoying, but its not the biggest issue she is facing as a leader.

cigaretteplease said...

i really dont care much about the iljin rumors as there have been no solid proof yet. i just feel like as early as now, she's already cocky and so full of herself. but that's merely an impression i have of her. talent and appearance-wise, she's mediocre at best and nothing more to it than just YG's boasting and pushing. Whereas with BI, you can really see his potential and feel his passion, YG's new favorite son or not.
Hmm.. we'll see if and when they debut.

ygBIATCH said...

i seriously don't get people who believe in everything they read...
do they have any other evidence beside one damn photo? smth

Pastel said...

Jinhyung and Taehyun were victims of false bullying accusation. Even now (after the culprits came out and confessed) their names weren't fully cleared as some people still think the rumors were true. I hope Jenny's isn't true as well but I guess we will never know until we get enough proofs....

couer said...

Well it probably easier for you to say that because you are not the one hurt. TBH I see nothing special about Jennie Kim.

soosoo said...

The accusations were along the lines of "she threw flour at me." and such. If she was that bad i'm pretty sure there would be more records or proof. Expulsion, suspension, more victims, anything.

soosoo said...

I always wonder if it's some bitter ex-peer that exaggerates bullying rumors with a graduation pic or a current student that got their hands on the old yearbooks of the same school. I'm not the nicest person but i dont think im a bully. If you're annoying or rude i will snap at you and im pretty sure they dont feel too good about it. It could be people like that making rumors

merp said...

I'm really confused because some sources say she's from the Netherlands (aye there Dutch buddy) but when the bullying rumor had spread, people said she's from New Zealand. I don't know much about Jennie Kim or the new girlgroup in general, but Jennie is really pretty imo and I loved her voice in Black.

psychopathetic said...

I don't find her voice anything special either but people need to stop holding onto rumours. and if you don't like banana don't even think of touching berries.

kissmeloveme said...

It's New Zealand. She has a short documentary about her life and time she spent there. YG talked about this back in 2012 when the girls were supposed to debut. That's when rumors started circulating. YG shut it down and there was no clear evidence in it but knetizens are still running with it b/c they would rather believe it so they can have a reason to hate an idol.

Judyi said...

I love Jang Hana ❤️👏
Honestly I haven't seen much of Jenny but there's rumors that she's like B.I.
About time YG discovered that a GIRL can also do the same as a boy.

Riyadh Prawiryo Att said...

YG wants to make her like CL, can rap and can sing.

Nova_REMIX said...

Well, they've already had females who can "do the same as a guy." I mean CL's writing and co-producing songs. Minzy's taking dance classes at the same complex Tae Yang did (different teachers though) so I mean Jennie's not the first, and neither will she be the last.

myoonsong said...

I know its easier for me to say this because I'm not the victim. But I still find it not fair for people to hate on an artist (or a trainee) whose career is on its way to be big, an turn off their dream because unsure rumours of their past? Beside, I do find Jennie special, listening to her voice gives me goosebumps, she's so much better than professional idols out there, so..

soluizb said...

Another interesting note is this is one case where the witnesses actually don't go everywhere talking and repeating or make a big deal of it lol they talk about it initially and then died down. Maybe that's the diff with inetz victims idk
But ppl change I don't see kids bullying as a reason to condemn

_Π_ said...

Im waiting for her since 2012...love her voice on black and special with lee hai...

merp said...

Ah, I see. That's pretty upsetting actually :/ I hope the group will debut soon and do well.

nothingonyou123 said...

Just love her voice... BRING THEM OUTTT!!!!!!!!

anon said...

What makes me sad is that she's a girl and you know how a big chunk of Korean K-pop fans love their sausages.

It's like, you have guys like that from SS501 who actually got busted for beating up a girl and you still see him promoting albums...with people saying that his "reflection" was enough and that it was the girl's "fault". *vomits on the corner*


That being said, I wasn't very impressed with her years ago but I'm pretty sure she has improved by now. I think among the rumored trainees she represents what YG's new girl group is about the best, at least with her vibe and visuals.

MMMOO said...

Basically her carreer, Taehyun's & Jinyeongs were tainted because of rumors that weren't really true

datiez said...

Typical Internet shits...but it's whatevers let them talk shit....pretty soon all of them will eat shit
