BLACKPINK's Jennie on Return to Variety with "Apartment 404": Excitement and Nervousness
BLACKPINK's Jennie is set to return as a variety show star through tvN's "Apartment 404".
"Apartment 404" features a cast of six residents, including Yoo Jae-suk, Cha Tae-hyun, Oh Na-ra, Yang Se-chan, Jennie, and Lee Jung-ha, delving into the extraordinary truths behind ordinary events within the familiar setting of an apartment, in a transcendent real-life mystery drama.
The globally renowned BLACKPINK's Jennie is making a comeback to variety shows. Having previously showcased her unique charm in "Village Survival, The Eight", fans are eagerly anticipating what Jennie will bring to "Apartment 404".
Jennie shared her reasons for joining the show, "I've always enjoyed mystery genres, and the opportunity to work with a cast and production team I admire greatly influenced my decision. It's been a while since I've been on a variety show, and I thought it would be a great gift for my fans." She expressed a mix of excitement and nervousness as she approached the first recording.
Regarding reuniting with Yoo Jae-suk and the production team since "Village Survival, The Eight", Jennie said, "I had such a fun time filming previously, so I missed it a lot. Despite being very nervous back then, they took good care of me, making the experience enjoyable." She added, "On the first day of shooting, everyone was so welcoming, and working together on solving cases helped us bond and become closer quickly."
In the teaser video released earlier, Jennie's delightful charm caught everyone's attention. She commented, "I'm a fan of mystery genres, but 'Apartment 404', being based on real events, made me feel as if I was actually part of the cases. I found myself getting immersed in the moment, forgetting we were filming." She hopes the viewers will be as engrossed in the show as they were.
Jennie also mentioned, "Each of our members has a distinct personality, so it would be interesting for viewers to see how we solve and deduce the cases."
"Apartment 404" is set to premiere on February 23rd at 8:40 PM.
