Jennie attended ACG Parnell College and stayed with a local family. The documentary featured several adorable moments that will definitely make fans fall in love with Jennie all over again.

As well touching words from Jennie herself.
“At first my friends helped me and shared their notes with me. Now, I’m more comfortable with English than I used to be.”

“Jennie has taught us a lot of Korean at school, she’s very kind and really fun.”
