Jennie’s role will make her the first Korean idol to debut in an HBO series. The series will follow an up-and-coming pop star, played by Lily-Rose Depp, and it appears that Jennie may be playing a dancer.

“The Idol” is set set against the backdrop of the music industry, centers on a self-help guru and leader of a modern-day cult, who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol.

In the moments Jennie appeared in the trailer, she unsurprisingly made a significant impact as she shared the screen with fellow global superstars The Weeknd, Lily-Rose Depp, and Troye Sivan.

The show will surely be a hit with its star-studded cast and crew. While the official release date has yet to be announced, The Idol is expected to be released this year.
