BTS News

Here’s their proof.

A photo allegedly featuring BTS‘s V and BLACKPINK‘s Jennie has been making the rounds online. Given that the two are members of the top K-Pop groups in the world, the rumors have been met with strong interest by the public.

According to the original uploader, the two stars were spotted riding a car with untinted windows in Jeju Island. This comes after news that Jennie and her rumored boyfriend BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon have broken up.

This is a photo that was sent in today. It might be they’re lookalikes, but it is allegedly a photo of two top idols. The female idol, in particular, has been rumored to have broken up with an OG idol member. So fans seem to be more receptive to this photo as true. We won’t name any names as we are not able to fact-check the photo.

Some fans argued that the picture was edited, while others insisted it is raw footage. Jennie’s label, YG Entertainment, neither confirmed nor denied the allegations in a statement to media outlet Chosun.

Not long after the rumor spread, fans began trending “LEAVE JENNIE ALONE” on social media site Twitter.

They argued that the dating rumor is being used to distract the public from the recent bullying scandal of Garam from HYBE‘s and Source Music‘s new girl group LE SSERAFIM.

Although staunchly denied by the company, multiple victims of the idol have stepped forward to talk about the violence she had allegedly inflicted upon them.

Due to the severity of the accusations and the intense backlash HYBE received for their statements in defense of Garam, netizens are suspicious about the timing of Jennie and V’s new scandal. They speculate that the scandal is being used to cover up Garam’s school violence accusations.

They also brought out another instance of Jennie seemingly being used to cover up a big issue. In early 2021, her dating rumors with BIGBANG’s G-Dragon emerged during a time when Seoul’s former mayor, Park Won Soon, was accused of sexually harassing his secretary. He died by suicide not long after the complaint was made public.

Whether fans’ speculations are true or not, it is unlikely to ever be confirmed by the idols’ agencies. In related news, an Instagram account assumed to be G-Dragon’s has recently unfollowed BLACKPINK’s Jennie. Read all about it here:
