Netizens point out how YG Entertainment tries to make Jennie stand out more in Black Pink

Black Pink, Jennie
YG Entertainment's favorite Black Pink member is Jennie, according to netizens.

The favoritism is supposedly apparent in Black Pink's outfits. Netizens claim YG Entertainment tends to give unique outfits only to Jennie in an attempt to make her stand out. 

Here are some examples according to netizens, 

Jennie is the only one wearing a fur coat here. 



She's the only one wearing a bright color dress while other members are wearing dark tones. 




Again, Jennie is the only one wearing a bright color when other members are wearing black. 




Same here again. 




For this event, Jennie is the only one wearing a long dress while other members are all wearing mini dresses. 



Netizens commented, "Not every time but you can tell the stylist cares more about Jennie," "I hate when agencies blatantly support only one member..," "The other members just look like backup dancers from afar... This reminds me of 4minute with HyunA," "And Lisa always wears weird clothes."

On the other hand, some netizens believe this has nothing to do with favoritism, and Jennie is simply getting unique outfits due to her fashionista status. These netizens commented, "It's because Jennie can pull off anything," "Jennie is stylish that's why," "Jennie can pull off anything. Stop trying to create issues."

What are your thoughts about YG favoring Jennie?

Their stylist did mention that each member has a different character and they give them outfits based on their concept. I guess it can't be helped, but I think all of them have got good outfits not necessarily only Jennie.

I agree! I saw the interview when the stylist was talking about DDU DU DDU DU. She said each member is styled based on skin tone, lighting, and stage presence. I don't think there's any bias going on.

I think it would be a lie to say Jennie isn't being pushed harder as a solo than the other members but the whole outfit thing seems like a big reach. They give each member a ''personality''; Lisa's the cute/pretty tomboy cus she's the rapper but she's cute, Rosé is the pretty but down-to-earth hipster girl that loves to sing and play guitar, Jisoo is the conventionally beautiful yet surprisingly quirky/fun and nerdy chick and there's Jennie who's the ''cold'' unapproachable pretty/stylish girl who is actually surprisingly very sweet and cute. Whether or not they really are like that in real life is debatable, personally I find the way they present themselves very staged and forced but maybe there is some truth to their personas.

Yeah! I know through following SNSD for 10 years that idols are trained to be stage actors. But they're human just like the rest of us and have their good and bad days. We see it all the time with the unfortunate incidents and controversies. But I like to think that much of what we see is most of who they really are. ^^

Not at all, they're just hating. When it comes to their outfits their stylist explained it (you can watch the video on YouTube or google it), until she got these two variety shows, that Yoo Jae Suk probably asked YG to let her do since he sees potential in her, other members went to more variety shows/had more activities. She gets to model because different brands want to work with her, not because YG is making it happen. She's getting a solo after being in YG the longest among all the members (and other members will get it as well). She doesn't get the most screen time or the most lines in their songs (mind you she's the main rapper, who in some songs doesn't even rap, and a lead vocalist).

She is getting hate simply because of being able to sing, dance and rap while also being gorgeous. There's a reason why Seungri called her a YG ace/lucky charm/secret weapon...

Literally every group has their center, their visual and their face of the group

example:

* girlsgeneration: YOONA is the center, the Face of group and the Visual too.

* bigbang: G-DRAGON is the center and the Face of group too, TOP is the Visual.

* superjunior: SIWON is the center and the Visual too, DONGHAE is the face of group.

* Blackpink: JISOO is the Visual, but i think JENNIE and LISA will be the center or The face of group.

Jennie is definitely being favorited and if you don't see it your lying to yourself. "She can pull off anything" and the other memebers can't. If you look at those same pictures you'll also notice something else. Look at Lisa's hair. That thing has been the same style since debut while almost everyone else has had something different and Lisa always gets the ugliest outfits. Why? Can she only pull off ugly? You defending the favoritism only proves it more.

"Jennie is stylish that's why," <-- this netizen comment tho... they do know that they have a stylist that gives them clothes even for airports right? .. its not the first time netizens point out that yg/stylist favors jennie.

hope they don't become the next 4minute .. "jennie and her backup dancers"...

I would say the hate game is strong here, but it could be that people just don't want a repeat of what happened with 2NE1. Even before 2NE1 disbanded, it was clear that CL was gradually becoming more favored and given more attention over the others. It takes a toll.

I remember that at first it was Lisa and then Jennie (when she started to stand out even more to the public) and I honestly get it, a group will always have/need someone more famous, it's pretty normal in any music group.


But for real tho... Jisoo and Rose get the most DULL outfits, non impressive AT ALL, both music awards, presentations and MV's :(

Uniqueness is in the eye of the beholder. All the women in the group look different compared to each other if one just looks at them from different perspectives. For example, let's look at the last picture. Sure, Jennie has a long dress, unlike the others. But Lisa has a blue dress, unlike the others, and it's covered in pictures, unlike the other dresses. Jisoo has a red dress and everyone knows the lady in red is always a stand-out. And finally, Rosé has a maroon dress, unlike the others, and it's sparkly, unlike the other dresses. The all stand out in their own ways, and their stylist has even said that she tries to dress them according to their own unique looks.

That's a logical reason for the last picture. But, do yo have any idea for the other picture? Especially when the other members use a dark dress and Jennie is the only one who use a bright dress. That is actually favoritism

I could go through the other pictures in the similar manner, with similar explanations. For example in the picture you mention, Lisa has a pretty outlandish, bold dress with large stars and ruffles on it. For sure an eye-catcher dress compared to the others' somewhat muted elegance. Rosé's monotone dress with a wide silver belt is certainly a stand-out compared to the others' details and frills. And unlike the others, Jisoo is wearing a dress with sparkly patterns, one that is almost moody in a Gothic chic kind of way. The pattern on her dress could even be interpreted as being inspired by bondage body harnesses, making her dress somewhat sultry and provocative (together with her straight black hair, which the others don't have), compared to the others' plainly feminine dresses.


I'm not saying my explanations are the absolute truth, I mean, how would I, a lowly netizen, know what's actually going on behind the scenes. Maybe YG does want Jennie to be more in the spotlight. However, I am saying that they are a plausible explanations for all options, once one is willing to interpret their looks from different perspectives. Human minds perceive patterns that they want to see. Once people are convinced that Jennie is favoured over the others, they start searching for evidence to support this claim, while ignoring the clues that might support other conclusions. But maybe one could similarly find evidence for that the other members are the ones with distinct looks meant to bring attention on them.


Finally, I have a problem when people find only a few pictures to support their case. Anyone can pick a few pictures out of hundreds to make their case. But one should look at all the pictures at the same time to see how many pictures do not support their case. What if for every five pictures like in this article there are a hundred in which Jennie does not wear visibly stand-out outfits at public appearances?


P.S. Only now that I've finished this comment do I realize that the picture you were talking about might have been one of the others. Or maybe you talked about both the picture of them on the stage and the one in which they are sitting down. When I began writing I for some reason just assumed you meant the picture which is second from the bottom.

She in charge of the fashionista in the Group, and there were moments were Jisoo had the best outfit and Rosè always has the best hair among them all .... always .

If you notice in Sechskies, Sunghoon always wear the fur or glittery outfit because he is the visual/center of the group and this doesn't make Sunghoon is more important than the rest. I think this is the same case as Jennie since they're from YG. I don't think this makes Jennie is higher than the rest because she wears different outfit. It simply because the stylist give them the outfit to who fit the style the most.

I don't think it's Jennie's fault or that she's the one to blame (like in the case of Heechul in Super Junior who admitted to always requesting to wear different clothes to stand out lol) but, they are definitely pushing her and playing favorites. They want her to be the next CL or GD.

This is a reach. But the people who are denying the fact that Jennie is being pushed more than the others by her company are delusional. I mean it's very clear what YG is doing, and it's not necessarily bad they want their own Hyuna/Suzy/Taeyeon and Jennie seems to be that one.

Idk if I'd call it favoritism. All of their outfits tend to be unique in some way and they always look good, but I do think Jennie's usually stand out the most.

All their outfits are all pretty and looks good on them. I don't really care about what people say about them but one thing does stand out and that is Jennie. Not that one is prettier than the other or treated any better or less, I wouldn't know that because I'm just a nugu. But it's clear to see that Jennie has more going on, a more unique/different style from the others, and whether it's her stylist's intent or Jennie's preference, the other members remain wearing same length clothing or similar colors. It's understandable why fans/anti would come to that conclusion.

Honestly in terms of clothes, she gets fashionista styles because of her 'fashionista' title & designer sponsorships while Lisa gets crazy styles cos she can pull them off.

The other girls get really lovely clothes as well, & honestly which dress is the best is subjective, cos i've liked Rose/Jisoo's outfits more than either Jen/Lisa's even if theirs tend to stand out more
