BlackPink’s Jennie confirms injured ligament, worried Blinks say her health matters more than upcoming album
BlackPink member Jennie confirmed on Saturday that she had injured her ligament after going overboard while working out, which has Blinks worried about the singer
BlackPink member Jennie on Saturday confirmed she has injured her ligament and is currently recuperating during an Instagram live with fans. She was with other members of the band Lisa, Rose and Jisoo and the four of them had gathered to meet regarding the upcoming album's video. During the live, Jisoo had also teased the theme of the album with her dance moves and had fans excited over what their come back music is going to be about. Despite the exciting news though, fans couldn't help but worry about Jennie.
Speaking about the injury, Jennie said, "Recently, during our time off, I was exercising a lot. Jisoo warned me not to go overboard, but one day, after finishing Pilates, I felt like it wasn’t enough. I wanted to sweat some more. So I started running on a treadmill that I recently installed at home."
She continued, "This is so stupid that I don’t even know how to explain. So basically, I was running, and yes, I tripped myself. On my own ankle. And now my ligament is a little hurt.”
She also promised her fans that this wouldn't affect the comeback album and said, "So I think I’ll be using crutches and a cast for a while, but I held this live broadcast to tell you that you don’t need to worry. It’s been a few weeks, so I’m already much better, and it won’t affect the comeback at all. I’m still attending physical therapy every day."
She then jokingly added, "I have an event coming up next week, and if you guys see me limp a little bit, it would be great if you ignored it.” While Jennie is taking the injury in her stride, her fans want the singer to ensure that she takes care of her health first.
One fan wrote, "Jennie got injured, I'm hella worried I hope she recovers really fast. Blackpink's health matters more than a comeback." Another fan wrote, "I heard Jennie got injured and I hope she gets better really soon. I mean it’s said she just tripped and it probably won’t take that long to recover but I hope she gets better soon."
Another one wrote, "#BLACKPINK #JENNIE injured her ankle but it’s not serious. She said they’re just over protective and feels like she’s back being a kid again (since she also injured her ankle back then)." After Jennie's IG live, #GetwellsoonJennie began trending on China's Social Networking Site (SNS) Weibo.
Fans had noticed Jennie using a cane even before she had confirmed her injury on during the live. One of them had shared a picture of Jennie using a walking stick and wrote, "I'm worried about Jisoo and Jennie unnie [sister] they are both injured Because of intense choreography Jennie had a scratch on her ankle and elbow and Jisoo use[d] crutches I as you can see below but I dont know who of them use that, get well soon Jensoo."
YG Entertainment had announced earlier this month that BlackPink would soon be releasing their comeback album. However, the famous K-pop band's agency hadn't revealed when the album would be released. However, fans can still look forward to BlackPink's collaboration with Lady Gaga on her upcoming album 'Chromatica'. The band is featured in the single 'Sour Candy'.
