Why would Jennie kim chose to work with that drama

  • Is she obsessed with hollywood that much like girl u already popular you don’t need a fking trash series I’m kinda side eyeing her with her choices that series is so disgusting and making fun of Epstein island situation your idol Jennie is so sketchy smh wrong choices girly!

  • I would've turned down the offer 100% but who knows, maybe it was because she didn't knew if the contract would be renewed so she wanted some extra jobs

  • I don't know all that happens in that series, but heard there is some weird stuff.


    Maybe she thought it would be a good opportunity to work with famous names in Hollywood (which I can't blame her for) and didn't know how far the show will go outside of her own scenes where she is just signing and dancing.

  • I don't care about the idol anymore! screw that show, the jeffrey epstein 'joke' was disgusting and sickening, I don't want to care about jennie being in that show because that's her decision for herself! she is already facing criticism and major backlash, so after the idol I am curious to see what other roles she will pick after the idol backlash, the only major thing I am angry about is how all the show runners and actors (including jennie) seem to be ignoring all these real critics and acting all blaa-zay about this like it's not the most disgusting show made yet!

  • Any publicity is good even if it is bad. Plus imagine how many people are going to give this a try just because she appears there and how many are going to discover her through this drama. Girl is increasing her exposure and building her resume as a global star, even if it is with this.

  • Why are Twice fans so obsessed with this :pepe-narrow-eyes:


    For a fandom that is now horny for western relevance and recognition you act like Twice fans wouldn’t be chuffed about a member being asked and getting onto a HBO show. :pepe-narrow-eyes:

  • I highly doubt she even read the full script considering how little speaking/acting she gets.

    “As soon as I read the script, I felt like it was so compelling that I really wanted to be a part of it. I'm so excited. I will work hard, so I hope you will see it with warm eyes.”


    I saw this quote attributed to her.

    Yeah the script people really think they translated the whole script to Korean for her or that she can read all of it in English? I doubt it

    Jennie educated in New Zealand can’t read English? :pepe-narrow-eyes:


    She’s friends with The Weeknd iirc and it’s HBO. It doesn’t need to be anything more than that.

  • She gets paid and gets a foot in the game. Even if the drama is bad once ppl have seen you in a drama maybe you’ll get more casting calls. Maybe Hollywood is her dream and this was the only opportunity she had to break into that.


    She’s a big kpop idol but she has no sway in HW. Just because you’re famous in one field doesn’t mean every field will hire you. You need to start somewhere and an HBO show is a starting point very few people not established will say no to.


    People really are being extremely obtuse. Jennie is big but her dreams may not just stop at being a kpop idol.

  • Well, I guess Jennie Kim knows what she's doing! She probably saw an opportunity to make something amazing with that drama and went for it. Maybe she wanted to show off her talent and make something cool out of it. Who wouldn't? She's got a great eye for projects!

  • She might have just seen the outline of the script and only thoroughly read the parts that she is in?


    That Epstein joke was disgusting, but from what I understand she was not even in that scene.

  • The way the show isn't as near as problematic as people made it to be, damn, conservativism and prudism really have ruined my gen z.


    So far the show has only had raunchy scenes, no rape scene, no non-consentual sex scenes. The major "weird stuff" is the bdsm between Jocelyn and Tedros and the sex cult that the latter runs, and even then its connected to supposedly "getting power". Those 2 campy shit are the biggest weird things of the show yet you have people like op and others trying to act like the show is a degradation of women, when its not.


    And even then, Dyanne's role which is probably the script Jennie received is: "A back up dancer who then takes Jocelyn spot under Tedros guidance". That and an HBO show that is being co run by the Euphoria and other 2 acclaimed projects creator would clearly get you to sign up for the show as your start career. If Levinson ended up being the sole writer and that propelled the hate train the show got, that ain't Jennie's fault and nor means she is sick or something wrong. People need to just grow up and understand that sex, bdsm and nudity ain't wrong.

  • Yeah the script people really think they translated the whole script to Korean for her or that she can read all of it in English? I doubt it

    I wouldn't do Jennie the disservice or implying she can't read a language she once studied in to protect her from enjoying a script and being excited at an opportunity to work with The Weeknd and HBO.

  • Yeah the script people really think they translated the whole script to Korean for her or that she can read all of it in English? I doubt it

    Since when is Jennie not fluent in English...?

    She's an awkward speaker but girl can read lmao

  • what's wrong with you ? I thought you were genuinely asking ....you have to keep in mind that the storyline was different with the female director and Abel is one of her favorite singers imagine if yoru favorite artist ask you to be a part of a drama, so she thought of new opportunities.


    yeah as fan I wish she picked a different project but what can we do? as fans we can't do anything. I also wasn't pleased when jisoo acted on snowdrop either. They can still learn from this and pick better dramas in the future.

  • People are making too much of a deal out of literal fiction. Y’all more outraged of jokes about pedophiles and sexual predator than the actual pedophiles and sexual predators who have gotten away with it for decades. These types of shows have always pushed the envelope, The Sopranos, Oz, The Wire, Breaking Bad. If you can’t handle this adult entertainment shit go back to NickJr.

  • difference between talking English and understanding a full English Script.

    Lol what? Of course she can read script in English, I don't know why are you coping so hard to the point of acting like she's a baby who can't read. Yall blinks need to start treating your faves like grown ass women they are.

  • Not Blinks downgrading Jennie’s reading skills and her awareness of what she went into! Jennie is an intelligent and strong willed woman, don’t boxed her into as a mindless uneducated person.


    In Hollywood Reporter interview, back in March, Jennie said she wanted to join The Idol because she admires Sam Levinson’s work! That’s her decision and regardless to what was the outcome, it was her choice and she is familiar with Sam’s works.


    I don’t agree with the hate that she’s getting but I don’t like people making out like Jennie just went in a project without knowing much. She’s not an airhead.

  • 1. We dont know if she read her script or the full script.

    2. We dont know if she read the previous script or the newer one

    3. Being a fan of Euphoria is fine and that show is no where near as bad it has strong topics but this one goes way to far.

    4. We also know that script was changing pretty much daily so feel free to tell me which script she read.


    'The Idol': How HBO's Next 'Euphoria' Became Twisted 'Torture Porn'
    Thirteen sources tell Rolling Stone that The Idol — Sam Levinson’s new show with The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp — has gone wildly, disgustingly off the rails
    www.rollingstone.com


    As promising as those initial scripts were, the scripts for the final episodes were still only half-finished and the finale completely unwritten.


    Organization quickly evaporated, mainly due to changes in the script, sources say. One production member says the first version of the show went through more than 20 rewrites, saying scripts were being updated constantly: “We did it every fucking day. It was insane.”


    But three crew members allege Seimetz seemed set up to fail from the start. When she arrived on set seven weeks before the show started filming, she was given half-finished scripts


    “It did start drastically changing,” another production member confirms. “It was kind of a joke how many revisions there were — whether it was changing somebody’s name or whether it was something more intensive, like completely changing the scene and taking away a story.”


    Eventually, the crew say they stopped getting one-liners, an industry term for daily schedules of what was being shot. And the few one-liners that were given out quickly became useless due to changes, sources say. Decisions were being made on the fly, frustrating several crew members who say they felt they could never properly prepare for the next day of work. “I’d be driving home [at the end of the day] and they’d be like, ‘Oh, we’re adding a scene, but it hasn’t been written yet,’” one says.


    Once again, sources point to constant changes to the script being the show’s most pressing issue. Levinson — who was coming off a hectic Euphoria production (which had its own issues throughout the season) — continued his frenzied pace over at The Idol. “There was always this sense of chaos because [we] never had a plan on what was going to happen today, or tomorrow, or the next scene,” one crew member explains.


    Levinson allegedly stopped sending scripts to HBO and certain department heads, according to two people familiar with the matter.



    A major concern among the crew, according to four production sources, was Levinson chipping away at the show’s original messaging, creating a distorted and jarring story that lost its overall impact. (Although Tesfaye is credited as co-creator and a writer, three crew members with knowledge of the situation claim he barely touched a script during the reshoots.) “It was a show about a woman who was finding herself sexually, turned into a show about a man who gets to abuse this woman and she loves it.”


    Two crew members say it’s unclear what will actually wind up in the show, as scripts were being changed daily and scenes were constantly being shot and reshot. Many say they are unsure where the show is headed and what will be used in the final cut.

    However, production sources claim the second iteration faced the same issues that plagued Seimetz’s set due to ongoing script rewrites. “There was no leash on this second incarnation,” a production member says. “The people who are fronting the cash and HBO, they’re not putting [Levinson] on a leash, knowing that you already have a [multimillion-dollar] bill, supposedly, that you can’t do anything with.”


    I took out the main points but surely you can tell it had many different scripts and was changing daily, Jennie was on on set daily or getting the updates of the scripts when shes barely in the show and even HBO wasnt getting updates.

  • Note: I haven't watched the drama ... and not defending her.


    To answer op: She's known to kpop fans but still a rookie in Hollywood, so big roles ain't coming yet? You gotta start somewhere.


    Also maybe the show took on another turn midway and she's in a contract 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

  • nevermindmejin is trying to say not you trying to talk about Jennie can't read English and just join the show blindly, she is not trying to blame Jennie but to claim she can't read is just... Its crazy how you are trying to claim she can't read....

  • some of you are going too far in what you think is defence of her but really just sound delusional... "she cant read english fluently" :cryingr:


    it could genuinely be as simple as her thinking it would be a good opportunity at the time, which i wouldnt blame her for.. before the RS article and the full details of what was going on were exposed, Sam Levinson and his work on Euphoria were being praised a lot and also very popular.


    the way you hear kpop stans talk about her role on the show though you would think she signed on the show as screenwriter :pepe-narrow-eyes:

    im not defending any of the script in the show..:pepewhat: just talking about the kpop stans ive seen who are pretending like she both personally wrote every line and action in the show and enacted every scene.


    i can completely understand side eyeing her but some people are doing way too much.. theres a difference between genuine critcism and "jennies whoring herself out for any attention" (something a user here actually said)

  • i read that the initial script was completely different but later it was rewritten due to the weeknd's demands. no idea if she signed the contract before or after it was rewritten

    THIS.


    It was originally written and directed by a woman, correct? I'm not interested enough to even Google search. And the story was told from the idol's perspective, sensitive to her journey. But The Weekend wasn't having that. She was let go, Sam L., on. And he scrapped everything that was filmed thus far and rewrote the script... Hm. Choices.
