However, a recent viral clip of Jennie from BLACKPINK’s Paris concert is drawing mixed reactions.

The video clip is taken during the end of the concert where Jennie wears a bra and a skirt, using her hair to cover herself.

As the concert draws to a close, she has fun dancing and shows off her twerking skills.

Some netizens found the look to be too exposing by their own standards.

  • “What’s up with Jennie’s outfit?”
  • “She dresses like that and dances like this”
  • “It’s not pretty or cool, it’s weird”
  • “But BLACKPINK’s outfits are really short this time, long outfits also suit them but why ㅠㅠ”

However, others came to her defense, pointing out the fact that foreign singers, as well as some Korean singers, are praised for their more exposing outfits and dance moves.

  • “I bet you’ll faint when you see foreign singers perform on stage”
  • “Hyuna gets compliments when she dresses like that, but Jennie gets scolded when she dresses like that LOL What is the standard?”
  • “I just think that Jennie likes that style”

Similarly, many fans came to her defense on Twitter, posting about how Jennie breaks stereotypes for the “unrealistic cutesy image” that many idols may be faced with.

The debate has opened up a conversation on the difference between Korea’s culture and expectations of their celebrities versus those in other parts of the world, such as western artists.

Additionally, netizens have discussed the difference in the general public’s reaction to men and women wearing exposing outfits and doing sexy dance moves on stage.

Fans hope Jennie can continue confidently having fun and breaking rigid stereotypes in the idol industry.
