The recent controversial and provocative dance scene in HBO The Idol has led to widespread speculation about how Jennie Kim could possibly have debuted in the series. So, what really happened? Was she really scammed into starring in it? Was it a recommendation from the company? Or was it her own decision? Facts and stories finally emerged behind Jennie’s acting debut in The Idol, so read on for the complete discussion.
Jennie Kim and Her Provocative Dance Scene Controversy
Jennie Kim of BLACKPINK has recently made her acting debut, not only in South Korea’s national production but a global series by HBO, The Idol. However, Jennie’s acting debut became an international controversy after the pilot episode of HBO’s The Idol showed an unexpectedly provocative dance scene.
In HBO’s The Idol, Jennie played the character Dyanne, a beautiful and talented dancer who danced alongside the main character, Jocelyn. During a rehearsal, she was asked to show Jocelyn what her dance should look like. As an actress, Jennie Kim did a marvelous job portraying Dyanne’s dance performance in The Idol’s scene.
Unfortunately, the scene itself has been problematic from the beginning.
Instead of focusing on Jennie’s incredible dance moves and performances, The Idol’s dance scene required Jennie to show certain provocative sexual moves and alluring expressions. Along with most of the series’ other scenes, The Idol focused more on the sexual and erotic factors than the show business’s artistic side. As a result, HBO The Idol received substantial criticism and plummeting ratings, with the public labeling the show as ‘cheap porn’.
