On May 23, speculations began circulating online that BTS’ V and BLACKPINK’s Jennie had just vacationed in Jeju Island, South Korea. Many people assumed the two artists were dating and spending time together as a result of this. The rumours started when fans saw a photo of member V driving a car with Jennie in the passenger seat.
Many fans of both artists claim the photograph is edited and not authentic. They claim V’s photo is not new and was shot during a drive with fellow member J-Hope at BTS’ performance ‘BTS In the Soop’ last year. However, it is known that Jennie just visited Jeju Island, and some have speculated that the BTS member visited the island recently.
Many news organisations contacted the musicians’ representatives for comment on the rumours. While V’s agency BIGHIT MUSIC remained silent, BLACKPINK’s YG Entertainment stated, “We have nothing to say [about the rumours].” “If we have a different response to provide,” they said, “we will notify you.”
The revelation has now gone viral among followers, who are waiting for further information while using various hashtags to express their feelings. HYBE, BLACKPINK, Jennie, WE LOVE YOU TAEHYUNG, and LEAVE TAEHYUNG ALONE are among them.
When people noticed that V had unintentionally followed Jennie on Instagram, the two were reported to be dating. Furthermore, it was recently reported that Jennie of BLACKPINK had split up with G-Dragon of BIGBANG.
