BLACKPINK—which also includes members Lalisa, Jisoo and Rosé—is currently on tour in Australia, with their next stop being a in Sydney for two shows at Qudos Bank Arena.

Jennie's medical emergency comes the same night she made her debut in episode two the HBO series The Idol, playing Dyanne, a backup dancer to Lily-Rose Depp's unraveling pop star, Jocelyn.

And bringing her pop star background to the TV series couldn't have been a better experience for her.

"It was amazing," Jennie said of collaborating with Lily-Rose in a June 7 featurette for the show. "I'm so lucky to have worked with someone that I've known for a long time. And she's a superstar. And I'm just so lucky. I had so much fun."
