YG's Jennie Kim swept with rumors even before debut

The buzz name of the morning on Nate Pann was Jennie Kim, the potential YG girl group member and the lead actress in G-Dragon's comeback music video. Like I explained before, k-fandoms aren't as tight knit family wise like i-fandoms are, so VIPs/Blackjacks weren't all too welcoming with the sudden influx of her news in time with G-Dragon's promotions.

During such sentiments, a person claiming to have attended the same school as Jennie Kim briefly in New Zealand came forward with a post detailing that she was a victim of bullying committed by Jennie Kim and her friends, along with a couple yearbook pictures (along with her signature) as photo evidence of her claims.

Below is the original post:


Kim Jennie is an early 96er and I'm a 95er so we were in the same grade in New Zealand. Kim Jennie came to New Zealand to study abroad in elementary school and attended the ACG Parnell College until six months into her third year of junior high school before she returned to Korea to attend a junior high school in Chungdam. She was then cast by YG. Her face was always pretty, I don't think she had any work done since her face is exactly as how I remember it back then.

At the time I was studying abroad in 2010, I was in the same class as her. It hadn't been that long since I had arrived so my English was poor and I became the victim of bullying ostracization by Kim Jennie and her foreign friends. I thought of suicide then because it was so hard to endure. I noticed that the internet is ablaze with T-ara's bullying issue, but in my opinion, Kim Jennie was just as worse, if not more...

Personality wise, everything has to go her way... She'd throw juice, trash, and balls at me and laugh while doing so.. Seeing someone that tortured me in the past preparing to come out on TV as a celebrity as if her past doesn't matter makes me sick. I never used to believe any of the rumors that surrounded other celebrities, but I can see that there wouldn't be smoke without fire now.

I'm not jealous of her fame or her looks or anything.. I admit that she's pretty. I'm also not a Big Bang fan or a fan of any other group - I have no interest in those things. I don't care whether she's in G-Dragon's MV or YG keeps hyping her. My point is, I just want people to see who she really is.


1. [+235, -13] It's not like Yang Hyun Suk would've known what kind of kid she was. He probably chose her because she had the skills, regardless of her past. I really hate the fact that someone that bullied another person can debut because it's so pathetic that they can make someone want to commit suicide so easily and yet they're trying to create a better life for themselves by becoming a singer or actress.. tsk tsk

2. [+201, -7] You need to receive an apology from Kim Jennie... How upsetting it must be to see someone that did something like this to you in the past come out on TV in front of you?

3. [+193, -10] Yang Hyun Suk doesn't look at anything but skill. It's not like he chose her while knowing her personality. Kim Jennie herself should've known not to do it... And it's because people like her that get debuted in the industry give way to possibly becoming the second T-ara.. who knows?

To give you another idea of the general sentiment towards Jennie Kim, these are the best replies on another post discussing her past.


1. [+53, -2] The girl that Youngbae posted on Twitter about having a girlfriend was Kim Jennie... and the girl in GD's new MV is Kim Jennie... It's so obvious YG's trying to hype her up ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ It's pathetic

2. [+52, -2] I really don't like her... Anyone can tell that she's only famous because of her company and Big Bang

3. [+36, -2] Here's a list of YG's pathetic acts

1. It's G-Dragon's song and G-Dragon's music video, but when you search his name, Kim Jennie takes up 2/3 of the information presented. Is Kim Jennie the one singing? YG, hold back on your media play, will you?

2. I wouldn't even care if she was talented, but she can't act at all. She has one or two facial expressions and that's it ㅋㅋㅋ YG keeps saying they added her because she fits the MV but she doesn't and can't act. They should've just called in an actress or model. Or maybe even the other B/W picture mystery girl.

3. GD's comeback in mid-September and the girl group debut is in October ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Back in March, YG said GD would make a comeback in August but they pushed it back a month so they could use him to promote their girl group. GD can't even promote properly because of the delay since it overlaps with the tour!

4. GD's album art looks like it could've been done in five minutes in photoshop.. and yet Kim Jennie's promotional video is hella high qualityㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. YG throwing around media play with GD's name for the new girl group saying GD will be their producer. GD & Big Bang = girl group promoters to YG

6. Yeah, numbers 1 through 5 are all YG's fault and not Kim Jennie's per se but this is why we can't view her in a positive light. The company is just trying too hard to push her into the spotlight at the expense of others.
