BLACKPINK Jennie Accused of Violating Social Distancing Guidelines

The "SOLO" singer visited an arboretum in Gyeonggi Province earlier this week, as what the images she uploaded on social media suggested. However, her trip was plagued with controversy after she was seen being close to other people in some of her photos.

BLACKPINK member Jennie uploaded a snap featuring several people holding ice cream. In the photo, there were a total of seven ice cream spotted, which pushed some netizens to think that she had violated social distancing guidelines.

The issue intensified after Jennie took down the snap and replaced it with an image of her hands holding ice cream. Fortunately, the arboretum was quick to release a statement to defend the BLACKPINK member and shut down the suspicions.

  It stated, through its official blog page, that BLACKPINK Jennie visited the place for work. The arboretum said that the "How You Like That" singer must have taken the debated photographs after finishing her business there. Based on the social distancing measure in South Korea, BLACKPINK member Jennie did not commit any violation if she was simply in the location for work purposes. Reports suggested that the South Korean rapper visited the arboretum to shoot a video to be uploaded on her official YouTube channel. While some fans got alarmed about how the photos stirred controversy, others were thrilled after learning that BLACKPINK Jennie is working on something for her channel. No other details about the supposed YouTube content have been divulged as of this writing. But, it is surely a clip that devoted followers of the K-pop star should not miss.
