YG Entertainment Officially Confirms Jennie’s Attendance at Cannes Film Festival

YG Entertainment confirmed the news regarding Jennie’s attendance at the film festival. “Jennie will attend the Cannes Film Festival on May 22,” the agency announced.

Jennie will attend the 76th Cannes Film Festival in support of her upcoming series. It was confirmed in April that HBO’s new show “The Idol” will get an Out of Competition premiere at the event. Although there were speculations that Jennie will be in attendance, YG Entertainment confirmed it today.

Jennie’s role in “The Idol” remains undisclosed. However, the BLACKPINK member had previously confirmed her new stage name will be Jennie Ruby Jane as she makes her acting debut.

“The Idol” follows an aspiring pop star named Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp) as she aims to become “the sexiest pop star in America.” Her journey becomes complicated as she explores a new relationship with a self-help guru (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye).

Jennie is not the only South Korean idol who will attend the 76th Cannes Film Festival. It was previously confirmed that aespa will also be in attendance at the film event.

Karina, Giselle, Winter, and Ningning will attend the event as the global ambassador of Chopard. The luxury Swiss jewelry brand has officially sponsored the Cannes Film Festival since 1997. This makes aespa the first K-pop group to officially attend the prestigious film festival.

f(x)’s Krystal will also attend the event in support of her film “Cobweb” which will screen Out of Competition. Rapper BIBI is also set to attend to support “Hopeless”, Kim Chang Hoon’s feature film debut which will be screening in the Un Certain Regard section.

The 76th Cannes Film Festival takes place in Cannes on May 16 to 27, 2023.
