In an episode of Knowing Brothers, Jennie revealed that Jung Jae is the inspiration behind her name. Since her eomma loves him, she decided that she would name her future son Jae Hee—which is the name of Jung Jae's character in the SBS drama, Sandglass (also known as Hourglass).

When her mom gave birth to a daughter, she changed the name to Jennie because it sounds similar to Jae Hee! Before Jennie and Jung Jae took the iconic selfie, the actor already knew about this adorable fact: "I briefly met Lee Jung Jae once in real life, so I told him this story. He was really surprised and happy to hear that my mom was a fan of his," said Jennie in the Korean variety show. Guess life has its way of going full circle!

And ICYDK, Jung Jae is also a Blink! After watching BLACKPINK's hit documentary, BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky, he realized why the girls are so popular around the world and he immediately turned into a fan. You can watch his ~revelation~ right here:
