Considering the rumors surrounding Jennie’s role not being as prominent as expected, many couldn’t hide their excitement that the promotional material seems to be pushing Jennie as one of the main characters.

Yet, while some were excited at the possibility that Jennie could have a more prominent role, it wasn’t surprising that some fans were worried. In particular, after the revelation where the crew claimed “Jennie has barely any air time,” many worry it is all done for clout and that her name is being used to hype up the show.

Considering the controversy surrounding the series before it’s even aired, it will be interesting to see what Jennie’s role is and whether they are “using her for clout.”
