Along with the gorgeous new pics, Jennie also updated her story with the inspo behind the hair.
Jennie seems to be channeling Milla Jovovich‘s character, Leelo, from the sci-fi film, “The Fifth Element.”
Fans are excited by the new look. It’s like nothing she’s ever done before.

Some fans think the change means BLACKPINK’s comeback is almost here. Often when an idol changes their hair, it’s for a specific reason.

Still, some fans are questioning this choice. Would she really spoil a new hair color if it was for a comeback?
there’s no way jennie’s gonna have orange hair for the cb because she wouldn’t spoil us like that…..right? 😭

Other fans believe the orange is only a stop on the way to blonde, considering proper bleaching of hair can take time.
Okay so jennie first had dark brown hair, it takes time to bleach it properly, in the 2nd image you can see stage 1 of bleaching which gives it an orange kind of color, it looks like jennie will probably bleach it further and go fully blonde pic.twitter.com/m3m03WUHZA

Some fans have pointed out that since no concrete news about a BLACKPINK comeback has been released, it’s interesting that Jennie would already reveal her hair.
interesting how jennie dyed her hair even before we have concrete cb news, and that she showed us her hair and didn’t wait for teasers, what if she’s actually dying it another color for the comeback, and her orange hair is a transition color

Though an exact date as to when it will happen hasn’t been released, BLACKPINK is expected to make a comeback this year. Jennie herself confirmed this on an episode of “The Game Caterers” with fellow YG Entertainment labelmates.
WINNER and iKON also confirmed that they were preparing for comebacks. The latter just released a coming soon poster for their new album, and since fans know that YG Family comebacks probably won’t overlap, BLACKPINK fans will have to be patient.
BLACK PINK 🔜
please be patient fans. YG entertainment already planned everything. so don't ever blaspheme out of jealousy or because your idols have taken a long time to come back. 2022 year YG

With the time between BLACKPINK’s comebacks so long that they’ve even been compared to the length of military enlistment, fans are more than ready for it to be their turn.
Whether Jennie’s hair indicates a comeback soon or just a fun switch up, she looks incredible.
