Blackpink’s Jennie is bringing “BOOMBAYAH” energy to The Idol.

The upcoming HBO series will feature Jennie in her first-ever acting role starring alongside Lily-Rose Depp, Abel Tesfaye (a.k.a. The Weeknd), Troye Sivan, Dan Levy, Suzanna Son, Hari Nef, Jane Adams, and Moses Sumney, among others. According to the show’s credits on IMDB, Jennie’s character is named Anys. However, not much else is known about the role yet.

But that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating.

In the teasers that have been released so far, Anys is almost always seen alongside Jocelyn (Lily-Rose’s character). During one particular scene, these two characters are seen sitting in front of each other in a sauna. “What was the name of that club?” Jocelyn asks, and Anys stares back at her with a cryptic smile. Jocelyn and Anys are also seen in other scenes dancing together at a club.

On social media, several Blackpink fans (the so-called BLINKs) are freaking out over rumors that Jennie’s character on The Idol will be queer. While this is mostly just conjecture for now, a lot of fans did feel some sexual chemistry between the characters played by Jennie and Lily-Rose and have been excited about this potential pairing.

As expected, the BLINKs have been very vocal on social media about how much they want this to happen. Alas, HBO has kept most details about The Idol under wraps, so not much is known about the majority of the characters on the show thus far.

 

We are rooting for a lot of LGBTQ+ representation on The Idol, and it would be a total gag if Jennie indeed play a queer character!

The Idol is set to premiere in 2022 on HBO.
