BLACKPINK’s Jennie And Song Kang Were So Gorgeous, They Were Likened To The Main Characters Of A K-Drama

Yoo Jae Suk agreed!

BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and actor Song Kang were cast members of the first season of SBS‘s Village Survival, The Eight. Alongside veteran hosts and comedians, they were tasked with solving a fictional village mystery.

Throughout the filming, the two were often praised for their gorgeous visuals. The camera would have frequent close-ups to show how stunning the two were even in such a casual setting.

Their fellow cast members noticed this as well! When they were having breakfast, Yoo Jae Suk commented that Jennie and Song Kang stood out like the protagonists of a K-Drama.


If this were a drama, those two would be the main characters and we would be the supporting characters around them.

In contrast, he joked that the rest of the cast members were replaceable!


We can disappear anytime. Those two would still have lines even after the breakfast scene, but it would be the end for the three of us.

In a separate scene, Yoo Jae Suk repeated his sentiment: “You look like you’re in a drama.” The editors agreed, putting in the caption, “It’s like a scene from a drama about handsome young people.”

It’s a good thing it was a reality show and not a K-Drama as they all had similar amounts of screen time!
